Application

I applied online – interviewed at Hertz.

Interview

I received a phone call from a recruiter, who was very unclear about what the company and position was all about. She avoided telling me the base pay total and told me that I should make worse case salary that is no where close to what I am making. I was totally mislead in order to get me hired.

Interview Questions

  • not difficult question, just be careful you read in between the line on the answers they give you. also make sure you ask a lot of question.   Answer Question

Negotiation

I was not able to negotiate offer, but it wasn't close to what I was told, I was totally mislead and the HR team did nothing about it except say sorry.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hertz.

    Interview

    Its the simplest interview ever because its a mediocre job. There is a high turn over so there is a constant hiring going on. Apply online, get an email to complete an online assessment, if successful you will get a call back that will invite you to an actual interview. From there it is smooth sailing especially if you have a sales and customer service experience.

    No negotiation, its hourly pay

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Hertz.

    Interview

    After you apply, you will be given a call within a week for the first over the phone interview. Standard boilerplate questions: Why Hertz? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? Tell me about a difficult time you had in your previous career and how you overcame this difficulty with sales/customer etc. Then if you pass that you have a second interview with an area manager. They will ask much of the same things but expect you to REALLY want to work for Hertz. If you like to sell or can sell this shouldn't be difficult, it's much like the first interview.

    If you pass that interview, then you have a drug test and background check. From start to finish you should see about 1 month between applying and starting. Not a difficult process, they are aggressive.

    Interview Questions

    • There are no difficult or unexpected questions. If you have been to a customer service related job or sales job, you will find nothing unexpected.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    You have no option to negotiate. It is "take it or leave it."

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Hertz in September 2014.

    Interview

    Very quick and easy. Came in and was jointly interviews with the assistant branch manager. It was a fun interview because they were fearless in showing up as people instead of this mechanical person interviewing a potential employee. I felt welcomed to the team before they even asked me to join.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was a weekend that I would be traveling and made it clear that I wouldn't take the job unless I could get that time off. It was agreed with no hesitation.

    Interview

    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

    Phone interview, interviews with managers. Pretty much telling you its a sales position and you are expected to sell optional coverages and upsell options. There is nothing special. They will interview anyone with a pulse and no record.

    There was none

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Hertz (Salt Lake City, UT) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the recruiter about a week after I submitted my resume. Then we set up an interview with a branch manager. When I got there it wasn't the correct manager, it was his employee. He didn't know that I was going to be coming so he was completely unprepared. The interview was the easiest I've had in my life and then I was called with an offer a week later. The company is very relaxed and it would be a great position, but I was very turned off with how unprofessional it was. I was also interviewing with a competitor, and the competitor was much more professional and thorough. When you make money on how you perform, you want to be professional! I also got a lot of responses about the job from the manager vs the recruiter that did not match such as what location I'd be working at, how much I'd get paid/bonuses, and what hours I'd be required to work. If the company could have been on the same page, I probably would have accepted the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Typical questions - tell me a time when you had to deal with a difficult customer, you were measured by performance goals, you had to lead a team, etc. He was mostly focused on having me ask questions.   Answer Question
