    Human Resources Business Partner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hertz (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Initial contact from recruiter to further gauge interest and see if I still wanted to interview. Agreed to take a call for a phone interview from the recruiter the next day. 30 minute phone interview with recruiter to gauge knowledge and experience. After phone interview, I was invited to interview with local HR peers. Interviewed with two HR people at the same time, standard battery of experience questions with some behavioral interview questions. Maybe 45 minutes with the two of them. They laid out a realistic job preview detailing the downsides of the job including frustrations with quarterly hiring freezes and a messed up accounting system that hasn't paid proper sales bonuses to the CSR team in two years. Sounds like a frustrating organization to work for. The people I interviewed with were nice enough, but even they didn't know what the next steps in the interview process would be and what the timeline would be like. From my continued job search, it looks like they've since downgraded the position to an Associate HR Business Partner instead of regular HR Business Partner, but no follow-up from corporate to let me know what was going on with my application at all.

    Interview Questions

    • Really basic behavioral questions. Look up sample behavioral interview questions online and practice answering several before an interview. You should be OK.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hertz (Naperville, IL) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Applied for this position with HERC and received a call back 1 week later from corporate recruiter from their east coast HQ. Accepted an opportunity to interview with local branch manager with much enthusiasm. Interview went well and I was granted a second with a regional operations manager. Despite my excitement for this job and extensive preparation; I'd been informed that another candidate with "a little more experience" was chosen.

    MT Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hertz (Chicago, IL) in May 2012.

    Interview

    Short interview. They just want to see if you can sell. Not very focused interview. Spent time just talking about my old job and how it compares with Hertz. I could see after being hired that they just brought people on primarily to make up for being understaffed for a specific time period. They would make better decisions if they weren't trying to hire 20 people at a time.
