    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was over the phone. I was traveling when I got the call and stopped on the side of the road to take it. After the phone interview, I was invited to a second interview at the regional office. They were flexible as I was out of town at the time. I went in and first met and interviewed with a Management Trainee, who allowed me to ask questions about daily operations. Afterwards, I was taken to the site manager's office and interviewed with him and the regional manager. They were all very welcoming and were interested in getting to know me as a person, as well as a potential employee. Shortly thereafter I was offered a position with another one of their local offices.

    Interview Questions
    • They were interested in my military background, primarily with leadership and management responsibilities. The questions were mostly behavioral but some did have to do with sales experience. It was all pretty standard. Nothing I can think of caught me off-guard. Just be sure you can talk specifically about past experiences and how you handled bad situations.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Intern pay was standard. No negotiation.

    Interview Details

    Process was very professional. The interview questions were basic and were not difficult. I had a brief interview at the college career fair. I received a call the same day to schedule an interview. They like people who are competitive. They are also looking for long-term employees so be sure that your career objective is in line with theirs. Although the interview really liked me and thought my interview went well, she did not hire me because my career objective did not line up with Enterprises'.

    I applied online – interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, had a quick phone interview, then she set up an in person interview with HR. The whole process went pretty quick. Interview was pretty straight forward. Interviewer didn't seem like she wanted to interact, she just wanted to ask the usual questions. I did not make it to the next step of the interview process, but it would've been another interview with the manager of the branch.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had three interviews: (1) phone interview with the recruiter (2) face-to-face interview with the recruiter (3) branch observation and interview with branch manager and area manager

    I wore business professional attire to all interviews, and did a good amount of research on the company and what kind of candidates they look for. I felt well prepared and thought my interviews generally went well, too.

    The whole process was smooth and professional, and everyone I met while interviewing was friendly and welcoming. I did not, however, receive another interview or offer.

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received a call next business day from applying. I scheduled an interview for the next day in the Cranston, RI location. I was asked to bring in my resume. The person on the phone was very assertive, informative and pleasant. When I arrived early I was awaiting for 15min over hearing the recruiters personal conversation. Upon her introduction and demeanor, she was scattered. Throughout the interview she was receiving txt mssgs, calls & consistently interrupting the interview. At this point, I lost interest and felt like a quota filler.
