    Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Penske (Atlanta, GA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Received an email to respond to their recruiter. We set up a time that worked best for her and her schedule. The phone interview was weird and the lady seemed to gloat about her master's degree in business. Okay, good for you. Typical questions during the interview, nothing special. Then she tells me to complete their online assessment then to call her once I completed it. That assessment is aweful and is going to be the downfall for any business that thinks that they can measure ones ability to perform at the workplace because of its bias structure. So once I completed it and called her, she just said with a very snarky attitude that, "if we dont call you in two weeks then consider yourself not selected". Or if she thought my assessment wasn't good enough, then she could have just said something. Very annoyed at this process and the company's choice in how they hire.

    Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carson, CA
    No Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Penske (Carson, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    I went to the interview. As soon as I stepped in there was no one at the front desk. However, I heard lots of chatter and laughing coming from the background. "Hello?" "Hello?" Still no reply after 10 minutes I walk in the back where the employees are and someone helps me. I go into my interview everything seemed to go pretty well. The interviewer talked about the position for 30 minutes and I was never asked any questions about myself. At the end he asked me did I have questions. I thought of 3 all of which he said were good questions! He gave me his business card and told me to go to the location where I would be working, 40 minutes from the interviewing site. I was instructed to observe the site for 30 minutes then send him a follow up email saying I wanted to join the team. I followed all of his instructions. I even called his cell and office to leave a voicemail. In the END big waste of time. & Gas money never heard back from him.
