    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Rain For Rent.

    Interview

    I responded to an online posting and was contacted by corporate recruiter. First interview was with recruiter and region VP where they went through a pretty standard list of questions. Next was a whirlwind trip to Bakersfield, CA to interview with corp execs, followed by a visit to local branch, and 3 more phone interviews. In total I interviewed with 9 people over the span of a month. Oh yeah, there were online intelligence and personality tests too. It seemed like it would NEVER end, then finally an offer. After that it took nearly a month for drug, background and physical fitness testing.

    The sad part is the company spends a huge amount of time screening candidates but practically zero effort onboarding and training. Small wonder turnover is so high among managers.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about a time when you had to deal with an emergency at work.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiate hard for salary as bonus structure makes it difficult to earn incentives. Push for more PTO since vacation and sick days come out of your PTO balance.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Rain For Rent (Fresno, CA) in November 2008.

    Interview

    I responded to an advertisement found in the newspaper. I received a call from the branch manager with in week of my resume submission. A few days later I went in for an interview. The interview went really well and the manager reciprocated the sentiment. We agreed on a follow up timeline. The manager also asked me to go online and post my resume and take an IQ test and a personality test. I took the tests the next day. On the date we agreed upon I followed up I received no response from the manager. This went on for 2 months. I finally gave up and decided that opportunity was dead. Out of nowhere on a Friday late afternoon (5:15 PM none the less), some 2-3 months after the initial interview I received a phone call from the regional manager. We proceded to talk for approximately 1.5 hours. I then received a call from the local branhc manager stating that the regional manager was going to call me. 4-5 days after the regional manager interview I got word back from the local manager and it was decided that I was to have a w3rd interview at the local branch. The 3rd interview consisted of stating I wanted the job, salary requirements, and paper work. The last step was a drug screen at the local clinic.
