Interview Details – There will be about 2 or 3 interviews depending on how management feels. First Airport Manager, then District, last (optional) Regional Manager.

Interview Question – The usual sales questions. "Sell me this pen" Then bam sell me this car so know your cars and the standard features inside them.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Can't negotiate the pay per hour its a Union job. But don't worry if you get in that won't even matter. You will be swimming in dollars. Be sure to go tax exempt!

Rental Sales Agent Interview

Rental Sales Agent
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Avis Budget Group in January 2012.

Interview Details – - Online Application
- Online Assessment (try not to be in between be strong ie strongly agree, strongly disagree)
- Phone Interview (Be very peppy and energetic make sure to tell them you have some experience in sales and comission even if it was just once or for a short amount of time who cares that's your expeience give details about it and SPECIFIC EXAMPLES!)
- F2F wow the manager probably Mike Beliveau with your sales experience if you can quantify it he likes that he has worked at Abercrombie so retail experience is a plus. He has played lacrosse and loves golf. He has issues with someone who has strong beliefs shyou are ready to be molded wvwn though you have experience. IE "I can always get better" "there's no such thing as bad critiscm".)
- F2F Again (optional) They're a little unsure about you give them something other than sales show them you are able to provide sales experience but you care about the customer and company too. Be dressed verry professional management LOVES a nice tie. Let them know that you get the driven sales person and the softie who loves the customer and company like family.

Interview Question – They may ask you to sell some random object to them such as a pen or piece of paper. Every salesman knows you can sell anything by using grand adjectives. IE This brand new design and 100% spherical technology allows for a better flow.

Another toss up is that they may ask you to use a procedure already in practice with them PTL this stands for people travel luggage. In this procedure you ask how many people are traveling 1, then where are you traveling to 2, last how much luggage do you have. Now after this they will ask you based on what they said to recommend a car so you gotta know at least three get an SUV a large sedan or a luxury car. Tell them some features and why it works with their situation. BAM they're shocked and you've landed a depressing but well paid job.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation it is a union based job at 10.25 to start sounds bad but commission pays off and go tax exempt for a month or two big bucks. The union protects you as well so be glad you have that.

Agency Operator Interview

Agency Operator
Naperville, IL

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Avis Budget Group in November 2011.

Interview Details – They are looking for indendent representatives to manage a non airport location and work on commission. Very close to an employee relationship, but without benefits. It works for some people, but many others find it difficult to make a living.

Interview Question – Why are you interested in being a agency operator?   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Commute was too long, over 1 hour, they didn't seem interested in this issue.
