    Very simple process, 2 interviews one on campus then an interview with District Manager. Show a lot of energy and come off as motivated. Make sure your prepared to do a lot of hours working for Hertz. Both of interviewers were extremely professional.

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Hertz (New York, NY) in March 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online last Thursday, and on Friday, I received a call from a recruiter in New Jersey. We talked for a few minutes and he asked me some basic questions about my previous job experience. Then we scheduled an interview for Monday at a Manhattan location. Monday I had my interview at 1:30, but showed up a few minutes early. I was out of there by 1:38! The interview was not really an interview, but just an explanation of what the job was. I did some research on my interviewer and learned that she's a college student, so probably around my age. This was why she was so laid back and easy going.

    I was told that I would be getting a call back. I didn't think I would. So on Wednesday, I sent an email to the recruiter asking how to send a thank you to the interviewer, and by the time my next class started, I was offered the job!

    I drug tested the same day! Easiest process ever.

    I applied online. The process took 6 daysinterviewed at Hertz in March 2012.

    Interview

    Pretty much just come prepared. Do not need a good GPA in college. Dress the part and have a candid conversation with the interviewers. Understand that it is a sales based job and you will be cleaning cars and answering phones... sometimes all at once

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Hertz (McKinney, TX) in February 2012.

    Interview

    I was called about the job by an HR rep, told about the position and scheduled a 1 on 2 interview the next week with branch and regional manager. I went to the interview and they asked a little about customer service and a little about sales but mainly the described the job to me and what I would be doing and what they pay was: $10.50 an hour with 10-15 OT hours a week. Not great but I'll take it for now. And they asked if I was ok with washing cars in formal attire and blah blah blah. I feel like I answered all their questions very well and made a good impression and the regional manager said I would be hearing from them, and I took that as a good sign. They said they had 2 more people to interview in the next few days and said they would call either by the end of last week or beginning of this. It's Tuesday and I have received nothing. I sent a thank you email to them on Wednesday or Thursday, got no reply. I'm very disappointed as I feel I am beyond qualified for the job and that I did well in the interview.
