    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at United Rentals.

    Interview Details

    Very simple and fairly informal as it was more of a conversation than an interrogation. The gentlemen I met with was very informative and allow me to ask any question I wanted because he understood I would be making a big career change.

    Interview Questions
