    Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Louis, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Penske (Saint Louis, MO) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The process went relatively fast once the interview process began. I applied online through my school's career website in December. I received a call in February. The first interview was really just to gauge your communication skills. Then I went to the facility. I had 2 more interviews after that all totaling about 1.5 weeks total. It was a pretty relaxed interview. Know your resume, and what you have to offer. There were a lot of situational questions, and behavioral questions. The cool thing about this job is that it really is an entry level fast track to management. They don't expect you to know anything, but do expect you to be willing to learn.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Penske (Detroit, MI) in June 2013.

    One phone interview and 1 face to face with executive team member. Interview was rather easy. Reviewing glass door is all the prep you need. They never asked about my preparation, competitive insights, etc.

    Beware: they make a lot of false promises about pay and training. I never received a full day of training and they withhold all bonuses to date despite promises.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Penske (Houston, TX) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Interviews are quick! It takes too long to actually get hired. I was phone screened, interviewed in person, and then had to return for a road test. This process should not take this long. Should consider having a one day process.
