    Interview Details

    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.

    Interview Details

    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.

    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 Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Hertz in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I signed up online for the position. After about two days, I was contacted via phone and asked a few questions. They were basic questions which were not very hard to answer. I was then scheduled for a face to face interview. I meet with two gentlemen who than asked many behavioral questions. The first interview lasted about 40 minutes. About two days later, I was contacted via phone to schedule a second interview. The second interview was at a different location with two Branch Managers. They admitted to being best friends and stated that they started with the company about 5 years ago. The second interview seemed pointless, they asked no question and one even answered his phone to have a private conversation. The interview consisted mainly of me asking them questions, most of which, I was already given information on.

    After the second face to face interview, I was contacted via email and told that they were considering other candidates. I was totally confused because I had did every thing correct, and the second interview just appeared as if the two managers were just looking for another Frat brother to join their work environment.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Hertz.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very efficient although very corporate. You apply online, entering the same thing a few times. Then, a corporate recruiter calls once or twice, sends you a test, and if that works out, you might get an in person interview with the Branch or Area Manager. The final step is a drug test. If you can show that you can sell, have a good dialogue with the interviewer, and demonstrate ambition and goals, you are in a good place.

    Interview Questions
    • Honestly, the interview was very straightforward and predictable.   Answer Question

    Easy interview. They like someone who posses leadership quality and experience. Sales is big with this company so you have to be outgoing and not shy. Be honest and truthful in the interview. Do not make yourself seem like someone you are not, because it will show later on down the road with the job.

    Interview Questions
    • None really, just be yourself and sound educated and professional. First impression is the last impression. You don't want to go into the interview and not get the job without even having a question being asked. Dress is important and tell a lot.   Answer Question
