Branch Manager Trainee Interview

Branch Manager Trainee
San Diego, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hertz in June 2014.

Interview Details – applied online, they called me to do a quick interview with HR, then did an interview with some local branch managers: that i interview i really got the sense that they enjoyed working there, when i asked them what was their favorite thing about working at Hertz there was no hesitation on their part to answer, they seem to be genuine people. a week later i met with the area manager, she was tough. she asked questions i have never thought of, and she seemed to have gotten a really good feel of my personality because she was openly giving me feedback and advice. Hertz does a behavioral interview, youtube the STAR method and it should help you out.

Interview Question – name 3 positive/negative things the people close to you would say about you, what is something that you need to work on personally that may advance your career?   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Branch Manager Trainee Interview

Branch Manager Trainee
Cleveland, OH

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Hertz in March 2014.

Interview Details – I interviewed at Hertz at Cleveland Hopkins Airport. First you walk in and there is no one working at the counter. People walk by and don't acknowledge you. That should have been a red flag. The interview was very basic and simple lasting 45 minutes. Retail management is retail management. The recruiter told me that I would hear back from her within a week. A week went by and nothing. I called her and she told me that they were still interviewing and they would get back to me. Again, nothing happened. I called back 2 weeks later and she told me that they have not come to a conclusion; so I gave up. I'm not playing that game with folks.

Interview Question – Questions were simple and direct. How do you motivate others? How do you influence others at work? How do you drive profitable sales?   Answer Question

Interview Details – I applied online and within one day I received a call for an interview request. The online application included an aptitude test that did not seem that difficult.

Interview Details – Usual behavioural interview questions, nothing unexpected. They want dedicated individuals willing to get their hands dirty and start up from ground zero. I had the impression that branch manager trainee is really just a title but you are employed to do anything with a smile on your face..
