    Interview

    It all depends on your City Manager. They sometimes allow other management to make hiring decisions however there was no set process in place at the site I worked at.

    Interview Questions

    • Name your biggest weakness... Too often people will say they don't have one and that is a bad sign. It flags overconfidence which is scary to your boss because they want you to ask for them for help. It's better to be honest.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There wasn't one from the interviewer because the HR rep calls and offers you the job. The salary wasn't negotiable to my knowledge.

    Customer Service Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Advantage Rent A Car (Denver, CO) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The process is pretty quick actually. They ask you some questions based on your sales experience and sometimes I know they will do roll play with you to see your technique in selling. They also will ask you some questions based on experience and see how well you answer like " if a customer were traveling to the mountains and it's snowing how would you sell to this person " in response you would want to say something in the lines of " offer them a 4 wheel drive vehicle of course because it will handle better up the mountains for them and offer their insurance because if any damage were to come back they would be responsible " these type of Senarios happen everyday at that place so they want to see how well you would handle that and see where your selling techniques come into play.

    Interview

    Was emailed, then called. Interview was at a location near the airport.(John Wayne) The location was filthy and run down. The hiring manager was running late. There were two other candidates. When the hiring manager. When he got there we went into a dirty office. He was chewing gum. He looked sloppy. I have never had such a laughable interview. This guy was unprofessional and talked so fast and make weird fake faces. He literally had no clue on how to interview. If the condition of the office, the unprofessionalism of this particular employee is any indication of how this company runs their business...Ugh! I would never want work there. The interview lasted only a few minutes. What a joke.
