    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hertz (Richmond, VA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Everything went smoothly initially, basic questions you'd expect in an interview. Once we got past the introductory and questioning phases, I was told what the job entailed, which was really just a puffed up version of the truth, using professional words to hide the fact the job was essentially a glorified car-detailer.

    Interview

    Easy phone interviews. They will promise you a lot and tell you lies about the hours, pay and location. They are just looking for people to become leaders and mangers- hence the management trainee title. They will process a background check and drug test you within 24 hours of you accepting the position which can be a hassle for anyone with a life.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hertz (Fayetteville, NC) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied for Hertz and received a phone called ten days after submitting my application online. My recruiter did a basic phone interview telling me what the company and the position was about. After he finished, he asked if I was still interested and of course I said yes. We scheduled my in-person interview for the following Tuesday with the area manager. I had to drive an hour for my interview because the interview wasn't at the location at which I applied, but it wasn't a big deal for me. I actually had my interview with the former Area Manager, and the interview lasted about 20 minutes. My interview was at 10am Tuesday morning and was given a job offer by 3pm that afternoon.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hertz (Klamath Falls, OR) in September 2014.

    Interview

    You must apply online through Hertz website. Usually an online assessment of about 2-hours is included at the end of application; you can take it at the same time or later, but you have to take it before your application is considered complete. Then, depending on meeting the job requirements, a recruiter will call you and set up a different time for a phone interview, which is the first step. Then most likely you will get referred to a face-to-face interview at the site of business with the site manager. If that goes well, you will be referred to either a face-to-face or a phone interview with the area manager.

    Interviewed with Branch manager then interviewed with the area manager, both were fairly easy interviews. They were both pretty lengthy, the one with the area manager more so than the one with branch manager.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hertz (San Antonio, TX) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Fairly easy, seem like they needed to hire people. The phone interview went really well, basic questions. When i went to the in person interview, i had two area managers interviewing me at the same time. Only issue i had was that i had to wait almost an hour after the schedule interview time since they were in a meeting.
