Branch Manager Trainee Interview

Branch Manager Trainee
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Hertz in November 2012.

Interview Details – I applied online and within one day I received a call for an interview request. The online application included an aptitude test that did not seem that difficult. The hiring manager was nice but did not seem to know which location the position was for. The staff was kind when I walked in the door.

Branch Manager Trainee Interview

Branch Manager Trainee

I applied online and interviewed at Hertz.

Interview Details – Usual behavioural interview questions, nothing unexpected. They want dedicated individuals willing to get their hands dirty and start up from ground zero. I had the impression that branch manager trainee is really just a title but you are employed to do anything with a smile on your face..

Interview Question – Sell me something.... etc...   View Answer

Branch Manager Trainee Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Cheektowaga, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hertz in October 2013.

Interview Details – Applied online and received a call from an out of state recruiter the same day. She asked a few basic questions. "Why Hertz?", "Tell me about your customer service experience", etc. She set me up an interview with the area manager. I thought the interview went great. She was very nice and mentioned how much she liked my education and experience. She gave me a brief job description and asked 5 basic behavior questions. She said that the recruiter would give me a call next week. One week later I received an email from the recruiter thanking me for my interest but explaining that I would not be considered for the position.

Interview Question – "How would you motivate a staff working on a difficult project?"   View Answer

Branch Manager Trainee Interview

Branch Manager Trainee

I applied online and interviewed at Hertz.

Interview Details – I applied online and was contacted by a recruiter out of state to set up the interview. The 1st interview went great, and was I told I would be contacted for a second interview if I fit the position. The next day I was contacted for a second interview, for Monday and was super excited. I had the interview on Monday and was told I would be receiving and call back, and it has been 2 weeks and I haven't heard from Hertz. I think that is unprofessional and rude; if I am not what you are looking for, give me some respect and let me know.

Interview Question – What do you know about Hertz?
Why do you want to work for Hertz?
Name a time when you had to up sale a product?
