    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at United Rentals in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online. Had to take a test during the job application. I was called a week after I applied to set up an interview. During the interview with the Branch Manager, we went over the test and what kind of experience I have. Honestly there were no STAR questions which I really liked. After that a second interview was set up with the Regional Manager. Asked similar questions that the Branch Manager asked, however they were more how I would fit in with the team and how I do with team environments as well as multi-tasking. After that interview I was called a week later and I got the job. Overall the interview is not that bad. Make sure that you are yourself and you explain to them how you approach situations. Like I said I didn't have to explain any past experiences (Star Interview), they just wanted to know how I would react to certain situations.

    Interview Questions

    • There were none. You only make the questions difficult on yourself if you don't have the experience they are actually looking for.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I might have been able to negotiate. However, I just took the offer as it is mainly because I am still somewhat entry level.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at United Rentals (Auburn, AL) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I first learned of the position from a career fair at my college. I was asked to come in for an initial interview with the branch manager and then a follow up interview with a regional sales director. I personally found the initial interview had more challenging questions. I felt confident about both interviews but another candidate who had more experience was chosen.

    Interview Questions

    • What is the key to negotiations? Are you more oriented towards a management or sales role? Strengths/ Weaknesses? How did you handle a problem at your last job? Several questions relating to how you handle conflict and getting along with coworkers.   Answer Question
