    Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hertz.

    Interview

    They tell lies to get you to accept the position. You'll wash one or two cars... Not, you wash fleets of cars all day everyday, unless you work at a big airport. You're told you will work an occasional weekend but it's more like u will work two weekends a month, 9 days straight..

    Branch Manager Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hertz in September 2017.

    Interview

    Did initial phone interview and was extremely unimpressed with how unorganized the HR rep was. She didn’t know my name initially and didn’t know the position that she was suppose to be speaking about. She referenced multiple salaries and then came saying an extremely low number saying it was the max allowed. Declined offer letter.

    Manager Trainee Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hertz (Woburn, MA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I only got to the the first step in the process. I applied online and received a call right away to go to a career event in Woburn Ma. I went to the event followed the instructions however the Manager who was going to conduct the Interview was not there so I interviewed with the Branch Manager. He was totally turned off by me and I knew going in that I was not a typical Hertz Trainee candidate. That being said I was much older than anyone else I have interacted with during the process and not to sure if that was a factor. The following Day the Hiring Manager called me right away early in the Morning. I tried many times and sent numerous text and emails but blew me off all day. I called twice today and after the second He realize I was not going away and He told I was not going to be hired. Nothing worse that calling early in the Morning and not responding to any calls just to find out you didn't get the job. Not a great way to treat people.

    Branch Manager Trainee Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hertz (Apex, NC) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was about a six on the scale to one to ten. Nothing that really jumped out at me. Base questions were base answers. Read the reviews, because they helped me along the way. I'm not going to drag them through the mud and talk bad about them. But I would say I know this job was not for me. I got lied to about the pay rate. I make more at my other job. They told me that I would be making $12 an hour, after about 18 months I be promoted. I was told that I was going to get a call back within 12-48 hours. The phone call never came, or an email. I just think it's better to follow up to why I did not get the job, along with notes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hertz.

    Interview

    You receive a call from a recruiter who will ask you a series of questions to gauge whether or not to pass you onto a in person interview. At the end of the call the recruiter will let you know if you passed then will schedule you for the in person interview. I personally only interviewed with one manager and got the job. Make sure you are prepared to answer questions about your work history, why you want to work for hertz, and emphasize your sales experience. I followed up the same day as the interview with a thank you email to the interviewer and got a call maybe a couple hours after my interview with an offer. Overall it was a positive experience!

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about yourself, why hertz, and was asked a specific question about my past work history selling model   Answer Question
