    Management Trainee Interview

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    They really like to promote a fun work environment and culture. When I went in for a Branch observation they had told me they just finished tossing a football around. The assistant branch manager guided me through this. The office was very busy but they all played it off as fun. After the observation I met with the territory manager. This is when they asked a lot of "canned" questions. Such as from 1-10 how competitive are you? Enterprise does ask you to be somewhat flexible with ability to move locations if you want to advance through the company. The position I applied for was advertised for in the area I currently live. At each step of the process (4 total) the location of the job had changed. I was comfortable with moving to any of the first 3 locations, but the location I was offered a position at was in an area that is dangerous and I was not comfortable with moving to. This part was frustrating to me. I felt they really didn't know where they wanted me, they just wanted a body. I had 2 phone interviews and then did the branch observation and interview with the territory manager in one day. I was never told there was a company dress code. I showed up in a light blue shirt with a tie and a jacket and the manager proceeded to berate me on my appearance. This was a major turn off for me. While ERAC as a whole corporation may be fantastic, perhaps their northeast region is not as well run as they think. It is difficult to get corporations to change but I feel they should come into 2014 and ease up on the white shirt only policy.

    I interviewed online - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview #1 - Phone Interview.. Very simple. Questions to get to know you.
    Interview #2 - In person interview.. Again rather easy. Basic interview questions. Want to get to know you a little more and what it is that you are looking for in a job.
    Interview #3 - In person again. Again, this was nothing out of this world to try and trick you. Basic questions to see what you have done.. more on background, strengths/weaknesses, what you want out of a career. Are you willing to work long grueling hours.

    Offered the position via phone call.

    Interview Questions
    • If you have been through an interview then they are all pretty basic.
      Most difficult - "What is the most awkward part of the sales experience?" or "What would your last employer say your weakness was?"

    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone Interview by the hiring manager for the area. If they tell you that they'll contact you then you didn't get it, they will immediately schedule you for an interview with the local office you are applying for. In Fairmont, the office was predominantly male, I actually did not see any female employees. You will be interviewed by the assistant manager, which is very casual, just some basic questions, explanation of the position, and a tour of the facility. That was followed by an interview with branch manager and regional manager. They ask you very basic interview questions but are very emotionless and hard to read. During the entire interview I felt like I had no idea how it was going, there are long pauses after you answer each question, which will make you feel like maybe you didn't say enough.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was a fast interview process, it took about two weeks all together. It was a series of three interviews, one with the recruiter, one where I observed a site for awhile and then had an interview with the site manager, and then the last one was with the area manager. They gave a lot of insight into their company and talked a lot about how competitive it was, the main premise was to beat out the other people in the company. Although I am a hard worker, I'm more motivated by working hard itself, not about how much I do compared to everyone else. And I think that's what has made me more influential and do better in past jobs. But intrinsic motivation wasn't really their gig, so at the last interview they said I lacked the competitive spirit.

    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Seen an advertisement on Indeed. Recieved a call from area manager about 8 days later. Brief phone interview. Asking about college degree and work experience. Was told I would be contacted for follow up interview.
    Area manager called about 8 days later. She called and said she wanted to schedule an in person interview for 7 days later. She seemed a little stressed over phone second time around and background was noisy I guess as a result of July 4th holiday weekend.
    Went to branch for in person interview. Business attire. Arrived early. Branch manager was off. Would interview with area manager. Spoke with assistant manger prior to interview I guess to "feel" me out. He sold me the Enterprise dream. Ie. Hardwork,Dedication,Sacrifice Etc. He was professional and passionate about how he came up through the ranks to assistant manager. Explained hours were long 7-6 everyday and company valued "hard work" aka selling additional coverage. Observed branch. Workers were pleasant but clearly understaffed. Basic retail job. Some washing cars in business attire and shoes while others rented vehicles to customers who knew complaining would get them free things.

    Interview was casual and laid back About 30min. Asked a few questions from a few pieces of paper and typed. Asked behavorial type questions. Why Enterprise? Did you go above and beyond for a customer? Asked me where would I rank myself in selling additional features in relation to others in the area. Was very vague on actual job and salary. Salary is hourly and 49 hour work week is mandatory. She seemed a little uninterested and almost rushing me along. Ended with me asking her questions. Said others would be interviewing for position and I would be notified. Area manager looked under 30 and professed she would be with company forever because its so great and she put in the "hard work" aka selling upgrades. Selling the Dream to us gullible graduates. Received Generic Email 2 day later, they went with other candidates. Ok Experience but not for everyone.
