Rental Sales Agent Interview

Rental Sales Agent
Buffalo, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Avis Budget Group in May 2014.

Interview Details – Completed online application and assessment test and received an email the following day to call in for a phone interview. I called and the phone interview was great. The recruiter was friendly and explained all about the position and what it entailed. She asked 2 or 3 behavioral questions regarding customer service and sales. At the end of the interview she set up the face to face interview for the following morning. I received an email with a job application attached that I had to fill out and bring with me to my face to face interview.

I interviewed with the airport manager and sales manager. I was asked to do a sales role play, very easy if you have sales/customer service experience. I was mostly asked about my previous jobs and why I think I would be a good fit for Avis. Interview lasted about an hour, maybe a few minutes more. At the end of the interview I was sent for a drug screen. Still waiting on the results. I already know that the screen will come back negative so I am assuming that I got the job. I don't think employers send you for drug screening unless they are intent on hiring you. The manager did say that when the drug screen came back okay then we would move forward.

Overall great interviewing experience.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Avis Budget Group in June 2009.

Interview Details – One interview. They make sure you are not afraid to work in the public trying to secure sales, so one has to be a bit aggresive and outgoing.

Interview Question – Why do you want to work here?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Salary negotiation? It was a set amount, there was no negotiation.

Very Easy Interview

Rental Sales Agent Interview

Rental Sales Agent
Jacksonville, FL

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Avis Budget Group in October 2013.

Interview Details – I did one phone interview that was easy since I have 13 years of great customer service. Then when I went to the interview. I got chewed out for parking on the lot. Please note there is no other place to park. The first thing that lady said was "ooh let me stop you right here. You take classes? Unless you trying to drop them." I had a blank stare. For 9.45 an hour you want me to have all availability and I can't go to school? I said you can't go to school and work here? She said No-We don't work with your schedule you work with ours." With a snappy attitude. I packed my things and proceeded to leave and i was told i had to keep my application there?? WHY> I will never work for a company that is not helpful with students that want to go to school. Unless you have all the free time in the world and plan to never get a degree ever. This will be the perfect place for you. Oh the guy who was suppose to interview me was late to.

Easy Interview

Rental Sales Agent Interview

Rental Sales Agent
San Francisco, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Avis Budget Group.

Interview Details – Really easy. Almost as if they interview you they hire you. They take a lot of chances because its a union job. you have 3 months to have good sales, you have good sales they keep you. If not, well you know. Your interview is really the 3 month probation period if you ask me.

Interview Question – They do have a questionnaire before you start your probation period. They're almost unnecessary because the questions are ridiculous like "is it OK to steal small things from the company like paper, pens and staplers?"   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation because its union and the base pay is already determined. Want to make more money? Get higher commissions!

Rental Sales Agent Interview

Rental Sales Agent
Kansas City, MO

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Avis Budget Group in August 2013.

Interview Details – You'll complete the initial application online and if your information warrants a phone interview they'll contact you in order to set up a time. The phone interview lasts about 30 minutes and the interviewer will ask you leading questions, so it's not too stressful as long as you prepare. Assuming you do fine on the phone interview you'll be asked to come in for a face-to-face interview. The personal interview I went through was very pleasant and lasted for about 1 and 1/2 hours.

Interview Question – The question to be ready for is "what does customer service mean to you"? Have a thought-out answer ready that sounds sincere.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Rental Sales Agent Interview

Rental Sales Agent
Detroit, MI

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Avis Budget Group.

Interview Details – Applied on their website, received a call next day for a phone interview. Right away I was told I passed the phone interview but there where no openings for a face to face interview, and they would call or email to set one up. Every Thursday they send an email to set up the face to face interview. I call back in to set it up and I'm told that there are no openings. I've waited 4 weeks now. I've finally withdrew my candidacy because they never have time available to interview their candidates. Complete waste of time.

Interview Question – Why do you want to leave your current position?   View Answer
