Recruiting Manager Interview

Recruiting Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Hertz in April 2010.

Interview Details – The interview process began with a phone screen by the recruiter. The next step was to interview face to face directly with the direct supervisor and then finally with that supervisor's direct manager. Three days later I received a call with the job offer.

Interview Question – All questions were straightforward.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Very direct.

Manager Trainee Interview

Manager Trainee

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

Interview Details – This process was a joke. They asked a few questions and then seemed to hire anyone looking for a job. No need for any competence. They make you take a drug test and conduct a background check but that's about it. They hire anyone.

Interview Question – How do you handle stress and pressure?   Answer Question

Manager Associate Interview

Manager Associate

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Hertz in January 2012.

Interview Details – I got the job through a "recuriter" who scheduled the interview. The Branch Manager did the initial interview, then the Area Manager spent a few minutes talking to me in his office. I had to "follow up" with them on a weekly basis. When I called, they told me that I was supposed to have started work the previous week. Again, I had no idea.

Negotiation Details – Hertz salaries are set in stone. No negotiations were allowed. Take it or leave it.

Human Resources Business Partner Interview

Human Resources Business Partner
Chicago, IL

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

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

Manager Trainee Interview

Manager Trainee
New York, NY

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

Interview Details – The process took a while, the interview was okay. The pay rate for the position is ridiculously low for such a position. The salary is not negotiable as well as scheduling. Overall, it's not a bad company to work for if you are new to the market.

Interview Question – Interview is Easy, basic customer service questions.   Answer Question
