    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at RSC Equipment Rentals in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    Brief telephone interview done late at night. Interviewer was pleasant and asked a number of obviously canned questions. Content tiled towards sales techniques and far less related to talent selection/retention, operational disciplines and more common retail/service industry points.

    Credit Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Minneapolis, MN
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at RSC Equipment Rentals in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    The phone interview was pretty standard HR stuff. Background, previous job duties, best and worst skills, salary requirements. No real surprises or difficult questions. You get the feeling they are interviewing over 50 people for one position as it was very well rehearsed. Phone interviewer was polite and offered very little info on salary or other specifics.

    Reasons for Declining

    The company office is a little far for me (it's actually in Plymouth not Minneapolis) but more importantly the office is pretty run down. The female interviewing is NOT someone I would want to work for. She sounded like she micro managed every detail (lunch is 30 minutes, breaks are scheduled)..again this is a SALARY position but treated like you're in a fast food joint and 16 years old. Funny part is the receptionist is on the phone talking to her child when you walk in (very unprofessional) and then to have a manager acting this demanding makes the place seem very disorganized.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was a phone interview. Then I had an interview in person with a district manager. I was impressed with him, very profesional. The questions he asked were not necessarily questions a HR person would ask.

    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auburn, AL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Auburn, AL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at RSC Equipment Rentals in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Phone interviews give the company a chance to get a feel for your skill-set, interests, desired compensation etc., and see if there is a match between their needs and your strengths. If there is enough common ground, then the phone interviews are almost always followed-up by an in-person interview. Phone interviews are generally conducted in two steps. The first step is with a recruiter in Human Resources. The second step is a technical interview, usually with one of the people you would be working with. Technical phone interviews are usually only conducted for people living outside the geographical region. This is done because the company wants to have some level of confidence in your technical abilities before they decided to spend the money to fly you in for an in-person interview.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at RSC Equipment Rentals in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    Basically wanted sales experience and information on how well you can communicate to potential clients. Big company, can get lost in the mix. Asked questions on how well you handle pressure as it can get hectic on the day to day workings of the company. You will basically start out in inside sales to prove you are a qualified candidate for outside sales.
