Operations Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Fort Lauderdale, FL

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Avis Budget Group (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in February 2016.

Interview

Several weeks after applying I received a phone call asking if I was still interested, and shortly afterward I had my first interview with the District Manager. He spent a good deal of time with me and explained the company's mission and what to expect as far as job expectations and training. This was followed by a phone interview in which it was revealed to me what the salary range was. A couple of weeks later I had another interview, this time with other managers. They gave me a very thorough picture as to what the job would entail, and I'm sure it was also to make sure that I would be a good fit. The whole process from beginning to end took over a month.

Negotiation

The salary was not quite what I was hoping for, but there are perks (such as a car), which offset the difference. Plus there are bonuses. As a result, I was satisfied with what was offered.

    First you take a phone interview with a third party. If the recruiter from the third party likes you then you get an interview with the airport manager. Fairly easy process and didn't take too long.

    Interview

    I applied and about 1 week later I had a phone interview, then the following week I had an in person interview. The questions weren't too difficult, basic managing questions how do you teach people, how do you stay organized, things like that. They really seemed like they want toomey people as most of the staff is in their mid-late 30s and up.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Avis Budget Group (Minneapolis, MN) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Engaging, the city manager John Weber was fantastic. He provided a discussion of customer service excellence that provided a perfect forum for us to "know each other". We then spoke of leadership and management, and the responsibilities, and expectations to build and grow a team. Then, the Senior Mgr. Karen, entered the discussion.
    Refreshing! The experience had me energized as I left, and I desire the opportunity to be a part of this team of professionals!

    Interview

    It was very easy going and down to earth but it did seem like he wanted to scare me away from the job. He didn't cover the pay and didn't seem like he even wanted to be interviewing anyone

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Avis Budget Group (Tampa, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was about a 3 week wait to hear back after applying on their website. Then they do a quick phone interview with a national recruiter just to make sure you're okay with the hours and pay for the job. They then give you tips for the in person interview. A week later I did the in person interview and it went very well and they seem interested, but they didn't offer me the job in the end.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Avis Budget Group (Buffalo, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview was helpful but a bit disjointed. Did not seem as though the person doing the phone interview worked for avis/budget but she was very nice. The in person interview location was hard to find due to poor signage. Benefits seemed decent, especially the company 🚗. The operations manager position is probably more for a younger (20-25 yr old) person without kids as the shifts aren't desirable and can change rapidly.
