Revenue Manager/Pricing Strategist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Naples, FL

I applied online and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Hertz in February 2014.

Interview Details – Worked with Recruiter, was called into office for a Raven's test (analytic problem solving, general aptitude testing) which wasn't too challenging. Then met with hiring directors inside the division the same day. I never felt too much pressure or 'put through the ringer' like other interviews I've endured. The questions were fair and not too intimidating, more of a get to know the applicant and how he/she would succeed within the role and the company. I was called in for a 2nd face to face interview with the potential direct supervisor. From start to finish was a bit disjointed going though different channels, wish there was more feedback, yet overall a good interview experience. I am checking "No" I did not get an offer as it is still pending.

Interview Question – Switching industries was hardest to overcome personally... They asked to parallel my current position into how to maximize my contribution inside of Hertz within a new role   View Answer

Management Trainee Interview

Anonymous Employee
Boston, MA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hertz in October 2012.

Interview Details – The interview was pretty straight forward. I meet with the Area Manager first and talked to him a little bit about my previous sales experience and how it can be applied to what they do at hertz. The interview lasted about a half and hour and then we sent up a second interview meeting to meet some of the other local managers and mainly had a quick Q&A on how Hertz is run and what the company is doing right now. It was relatively inform and after everything was all said and down I eventually heard back from them a week later with an offer letter.
