Albuquerque, NM

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Hertz.

Interview Details – I was interviewed but not hired. I think because I told them it would be difficult for me to work on Christmas for an indeterminate number of years. Holidays are work days and so you have to "bid" to have them off. Senior employees have priority.

Interview Question – I was asked to describe a negative working experience I'd had. it was not comfortable because I didn't want to seem as if I was just badmouthing a prior employer.   Answer Question
