    Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hertz.

    Interview

    So far I've had two recruiters from this company contact me. The first time it was a generic email blast that was likely sent out to every applicant for the job. It said a time, date, location, and said that they would be hiring for the position on the spot.

    The first problem with this is that the date and time was just over a day away, about fifty miles from the actual store location, and happened to be a time frame (12-4) during normal business hours when many people are working (which I was). I emailed back saying that the notice was too short but that I was still interested in the job.

    Several emails later we finally discovered that the recruiter never bothered to look at the my desired start date (six months in the future-because I graduate in May and applied in December).

    The next time was a different recruiter who emailed me saying that they had called and left a voicemail, though I never received anything. I replied that my phone must not have collected the missed called and voicemail like it normally does, which is possible, but that I was interested in setting up a phone interview, which is what they asked of me.

    I even sent them a few times and dates that I was available to talk and mentioned that if they had different availability to let me know and I could try to work around that. But they replied well after the dates I had that were free and simply asked for my number without responding to my question or acknowledging the days I had made available to them.

    I sent my number and again asked what time would work well and have yet to hear a response weeks later. I sent a follow up email asking if they were still interested and saying that I still am, but they don't even have the time I guess to give a courtesy reply and let me know where they are at in the process.

    I am disappointed that these practices are allowed to happen in such a large and seemingly distinguished company. You did not just put me off, you put me off to even using your services in the future. I have been a Hertz customer several times and I doubt I'll be back.

    Even if someone is not your employee and will never be your employee treating them well can only help you. But if you don't treat them well, good luck with that philosophy.

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Hertz.

    Interview

    Quick Response and interview scheduled within 24 hours of replying. But the interviewer never gave me a chance to start with, asked no job specific questions, so very biased. I can’t say what they was looking for because it doesn’t demand a lot from the position

    Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cherry Hill, NJ

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hertz (Cherry Hill, NJ).

    Interview

    Received a phone call out of the blue a couple days after applying from the regional recruiter. Started out as basic questions but turned into a full phone interview, which is extremely unprofessional IMO. Ended up going to an in-person interview a couple days later. I had a scheduled time, but there were other people already waiting to be interviewed, so I had to wait an additional 30 minutes or so. Finally got into the interview. Basic questions about myself and experience at first, but the interviewer actually took 3 or 4 phone calls DURING the interview. Again, unprofessional. Despite that, I thought it was going well until he said "Mind if we do a little role playing? Sell me a pair of shoes, go." Never received any additional correspondence after this interview. Not a place I would've wanted to work anyway. Look elsewhere!
