Management Trainee Interview

Management Trainee

I applied online and the process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Penske Truck Leasing.

Interview Details – The entire process took just over a month due to both of our schedules. I applied online and received a phone call for my first interview with the District Rental Manager and the location Rental Manager. The following week I had a phone interview with the District Manager. At this point they wanted to see if I would be a good fit for the company. A couple weeks later I had the final interview with the Regional Manager. This was more of a candid conversation that an actual interview. The District Rental Manager is the one who does the actual hiring but the other interviews are to make sure that you would be a good fit for the company.

Interview Question – Typical questions such as what are your greatest strengths/weaknesses. How did you handle a negative work situation.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – This position is hourly and pretty cut and dry. It's a good starting salary and after about 6 months you will get a promotion and a raise.

Rental Representative Part Time Interview

Rental Representative Part Time

I applied online and interviewed at Penske Truck Leasing.

Interview Details – I applied online and followed up on my application with the District Rental Manager. I was then offered an on the spot phone interview and set up an in-person interview the following day. The phone interview was them getting to know my work background and experiences and then the in-person interview was so they could get to know you as a person, and what you could offer the company.

The interview was one-on-one and very laid back. For this position in particular, they were looking for someone who could provide excellent customer service and could connect with a customer. If you can develop a connection with your interviewer, you should be in good shape.

Interview Question – What sets you apart from other applicants?
