    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car (Farmington Hills, MI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I was told that it would be a five part process, however I only made it to the third part. I had to fill out the application, which was considered the first part. The second part was an over the phone interview and following that interview I was set up for an in person interview. The in person interview was located about an hour and a half from my home address. My interview appointment was set for about 9:30 in the morning, so I had to leave from my house at around 7:45 AM in order to make it there on time. The interview was pretty standard, I got asked the familiar questions. Obviously this company is looking for employees that can talk about "winning" against competition. I answered all of the questions that were thrown at me, very openly and candidly. The person interviewing me was not someone that you could really connect with. Clearly, he was a business professional with no actual human emotions. He wanted me to answer the questions in a certain way, particular to the way that he would have answered the questions. There was no room for error, you had to match exactly what he wanted you to say. I ended up getting turned down for the next part of the interview process after having to wait a full 48 hours to hear back from the Manager I had interviewed with. He was too self-involved and I can honestly say that I've had better interview experiences.

    Interview Questions

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in July 2015.

    Interview

    HR calls and does a short phone interview then sets you up for the next step. Next step includes 1 hour of observation of operations at a branch followed by a sit-down interview with an Area Manager. If you are not a recent college graduate don't bother to apply. They do not want to hire people with experience managing elsewhere, they want young folks who will learn their methods only. Go into a branch and look around and see if you can find someone over 30. You won't.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask about your competitiveness, ask you to rate your sales ability. General situational questions asking you what you have done with upset customers, what you have done to upsell people, etc.   1 Answer

    Interview

    Very formal. 1st and 2nd interview basically had the same set of questions. Both of them were also online and they tell you wether you will proceed to the next or not. They do not intimidate you with any out of the blue questions and are pretty much straightforward.
