    Interview

    Easy phone interviews. They will promise you a lot and tell you lies about the hours, pay and location. They are just looking for people to become leaders and mangers- hence the management trainee title. They will process a background check and drug test you within 24 hours of you accepting the position which can be a hassle for anyone with a life.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Hertz (Quincy, MA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Since applying for Hertz last week, I can say that the hiring process moves pretty swiftly because I received a phone interview two days ago and went in for the interview today. The person interviewing as an area manager who seemed polite and straight forward about the day-to-day duties of a manager in training with a non-airport location site. He also explained the process to becoming a manager if one successfully completes the program between 9 months to a year. The next step after the 1st face-to-face interview is a 2nd face-to-face interview with the supervisor of the area manager who first interviewed me in person.

    Interview Questions

    • I could say the most difficult question could be why Hertz? There were several ways of answering this question without seeming fake, so I took the direct approach and mostly focused my response on the fact that Hertz is a company that offers opportunities for growth and that it really does care about its employees which is for the most part perhaps true especially since the area manager says that in 4 years of working with Hertz, he has not seen one person get laid-off. According to the area manager, Hertz seems like a company that strives to listen to their employees especially since the employees are the ones who are in the trenches day in and day out.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Hertz (Klamath Falls, OR) in September 2014.

    Interview

    You must apply online through Hertz website. Usually an online assessment of about 2-hours is included at the end of application; you can take it at the same time or later, but you have to take it before your application is considered complete. Then, depending on meeting the job requirements, a recruiter will call you and set up a different time for a phone interview, which is the first step. Then most likely you will get referred to a face-to-face interview at the site of business with the site manager. If that goes well, you will be referred to either a face-to-face or a phone interview with the area manager.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Hertz (Fayetteville, NC) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for Hertz and received a phone called ten days after submitting my application online. My recruiter did a basic phone interview telling me what the company and the position was about. After he finished, he asked if I was still interested and of course I said yes. We scheduled my in-person interview for the following Tuesday with the area manager. I had to drive an hour for my interview because the interview wasn't at the location at which I applied, but it wasn't a big deal for me. I actually had my interview with the former Area Manager, and the interview lasted about 20 minutes. My interview was at 10am Tuesday morning and was given a job offer by 3pm that afternoon.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Hertz (Duarte, CA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Had 1 interview where the Area Manager pretty much just asks about yourself and gauges your self motivation and strengths. No curve balls, you just need to sell yourself really be ready for work. You must prove that you're good with customer service as well as sales. The area manager was pretty much telling me about the job already and what I should expect so it kind of felt like a job interview and a job orientation all in one.
