    Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hertz (Chicago, IL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Interview went fine. Hiring Manager was very nice, but was not told this would be an all sales job. I probably wouldn't have taken the job if I knew I would get written up for not making sales goals that were not easy to get in a certain demographic where I was getting job.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hertz (Chicago, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I met with Chris Williams. He was very pleasant. I was able to answer all the questions he asked, as well offer some highlights about myself. Because I already had experience in this filed, it was second nature for me. He was not intimidating at all. He was very calm, polite, and informative.

    Human Resources Business Partner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Hertz (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Initial contact from recruiter to further gauge interest and see if I still wanted to interview. Agreed to take a call for a phone interview from the recruiter the next day. 30 minute phone interview with recruiter to gauge knowledge and experience. After phone interview, I was invited to interview with local HR peers. Interviewed with two HR people at the same time, standard battery of experience questions with some behavioral interview questions. Maybe 45 minutes with the two of them. They laid out a realistic job preview detailing the downsides of the job including frustrations with quarterly hiring freezes and a messed up accounting system that hasn't paid proper sales bonuses to the CSR team in two years. Sounds like a frustrating organization to work for. The people I interviewed with were nice enough, but even they didn't know what the next steps in the interview process would be and what the timeline would be like. From my continued job search, it looks like they've since downgraded the position to an Associate HR Business Partner instead of regular HR Business Partner, but no follow-up from corporate to let me know what was going on with my application at all.

    Interview Questions

    • Really basic behavioral questions. Look up sample behavioral interview questions online and practice answering several before an interview. You should be OK.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Hertz (Chicago, IL) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Very quick, only asked if I had sales experience and if I was ok working with the public. I was called back and hired within the week. All my background information came back quickly and I was set up for training and on the road to being a Hertz employee quickly. They welcome you in as if you are becoming part of family. One of the easiest hiring processes I have been through in my entire work career.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hertz (Naperville, IL) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Applied for this position with HERC and received a call back 1 week later from corporate recruiter from their east coast HQ. Accepted an opportunity to interview with local branch manager with much enthusiasm. Interview went well and I was granted a second with a regional operations manager.
    Despite my excitement for this job and extensive preparation; I'd been informed that another candidate with "a little more experience" was chosen.

    Management Trainee Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hertz (Chicago, IL) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Met the very young manager of an off-airport branch and went for coffee as the tiny shack of a location wouldn't work for a job interview. The whole thing seemed like like a formality in that I am sure anyone who seemed remotely willing to be polite and do what they were told while making a reasonable effort would get the job. Je posed a few softball questions that seemed entirely meant to gauge sanity and willingness to perform the simple job duties and stay with company for a while. He also sold the job as an opportunity for advancement and tried to figure out my ambition level, as that seems the way they keep people, by dangling the carrot that is managing your own tiny branch after six months to a year or so of cleaning out cars. I followed up with the regional manager. That interview was equally softball and seemed to be about covering the law. I got an offer a little while the second interview.

    I applied online and within one day I received a call for an interview request. The online application included an aptitude test that did not seem that difficult.
