    Hertz Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in North Hollywood, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hertz (North Hollywood, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Two interviews. The first was in a different area from where I was hired. The second was in the area I was hired in and came about because of a reference from the the first interviewer who couldn't take me at the time. Both were largely informal but they touched on some of the typical "script" questions. I was given a job offer about a week after the second interview.

    Location Manager I Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Windsor, CT

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hertz (Windsor, CT).

    Interview

    The interview was a very basic overview of what you had done. It was much more focused on interpersonal, problem solving and being able to multi task. Hertz as an organization is defined by nimble management who's ability to delegate and shift internal human resources very quickly in order to accommodate a dynamic landscape. They are looking for high functioning resourceful operational managers who have a PM tendency's.

    In addition you have to have the correct personality style--A "B" with layers of A mixed in. That is what they are looking for.

    GENERAL SALES MANAGER Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Hertz (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I originally applied on the Hertz employment website for the position. It took them about 3 days for a response to my application. My first interview was by phone with a recruiter from the human resources department in which she just verified my work history listed on my resume. It was about 20 minutes in duration. My second interview was also by phone with the regional sales manager. Again he just verified my work history listed on my resume. I could tell by the conversation that his work experience wasn't really retail sales. It was more on the rental, and logistical side of Hertz. He then scheduled me a face to face interview with himself in my state. At the third interview he focused in more detail about my work history, asking the general interview questions that I've answered a million times. It was about sixty minutes long. He then setup a fourth interview with me for the following week. This gave them time needed to verify my work history, and references, and probably my background check. At the fourth interview, he asked specific questions in regards to sales, and how I manage time, and people, and again it was about sixty minutes long. A week later after I had tried followed up with them a few times I got a call from the recruiter with the job offer. It was a long waiting period.

    Transporter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Arlington, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Hertz (Arlington, TX).

    Interview

    Online application then phone interview followed by one on one. There really wasn't much to it, after all it's a driver position. The interview when I was promoted to Manager Trainee was about the same, but I was more informed of what I would be doing. If you can convincingly sell yourself, you can do this job.

    Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Estero, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hertz (Estero, FL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Filled out the application on the company website, got an email within a few days from HR to set up a phone interview. Screening was relatively easy, talked about the experiences and what I'm looking for. It helps to know a little about the company and position you're applying for (technical terms, etc.). Had an in person interview with mangement and offered the position two days later.
