    Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Portland, OR
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Hertz (Portland, OR) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview is very straight forward and pre-qualifies you before the in person interview process. First interview was with an area manager and the assistant branch manager of the location you would be assigned to, all questions based on how you would respond to certain situations, and based off of your past experiences in other jobs. If all goes well your HR personnel will schedule your second interview, the questions in this interview are all very similar. Be sure to ask questions at the end of the interview.

    Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Louis, MO
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hertz (Saint Louis, MO) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Before getting an initial interview at the main office a phone interview was set up, which is very general and basic asking about your experience and going over your resume. the main interview was where i was confused. the "manager" interviewing me knew nothing about me at all, basically asking the same questions that the phone recruiter asked. The whole interview was basically just him explaining the job to be and me asking questions. It was a really laid back interview though and very non formal. After he told me that the pay was only $10.00 with overtime pay of time and a half I knew then that I was going to decline the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • How do you think you can handle a strict sales environment?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    50+ hours a week only making $10.00 an hour. thats crazy. no work life balance. you work everyday from open until close with a saturday until 12 pm.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Hertz (West Babylon, NY) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online and I received a phone call about 2 weeks later from a recruiter and I set up an interview with the Area Manager for the next day. The Area Manager was very young, not older than 30, and was a bit unprofessional. He was texting during the interview, and the interview consisted of a list of questions from a pamphlet that I had no problem answering. Overall, a very easy interview to ace. I got a phone call the next day from the initial recruiter saying that they wanted to offer me the job, and I gladly accepted.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Hertz (Duarte, CA) in June 2011.

    Interview

    The regional recruiter was very friendly over the phone and told me what I needed to do to continue my process. He then scheduled an interview with the district manager at my local Hertz. When I showed up for my interview, I had to wait about 20 minutes because the manager was not there. Once he got there, he was very friendly and the interview took about 30 minutes. I noticed that all the workers I saw (about 5-6) were all men.
