Interview

Applied online. Phone interview, the lady was very reluctant conducting phone interview. She did not ask many questions and when I asked her questions she basically did not answer my question.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at United Rentals (Austin, TX) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I had previously done the same role for Hertz Equipment Rental, so the interview was basically a breeze. When i called to check on the opening, the manager happened to have my resume in his hand, which was odd and clearly to my advantage. I was able to push my way into a brief interview over the phone at that point. After i went into the interview, it was clear that i knew my way around the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at United Rentals (Denton, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I was referred by a current employee of the company. I applied online and sent my resume to the branch manager. I was contacted a few days later by someone from HR giving me an overview of the company and position. She asked me a few questions about my background and we set up an in-person interview with the branch manager the following week.
    The interview was pretty casual, nothing too stressful. I also met with the district manager who asked me similar questions and just wanted to get to know me more.

    A week later, I received a call from the branch manager offering me a position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at United Rentals.

    Interview

    I met the branch manager at a job fair for my university, there wasn't a position open initially but we stayed in touch until a position became available. I had one phone interview, one interview with just the branch manager and a final panel interview with an outside sales representative and the District manager. There was about a week and half between each interview.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiate for pay, but there wasn't reason to negotiate either. The pay is very competitive for right out of college.

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at United Rentals.

    Interview

    Well, a long process to say the least I had a recruiter contact me after applying online about another position that happen to be the ISR position, however there was not a position open in the area I was at and was directed to look up other locations. Had great results from the personality quiz so just thought I would get on somewhere. Sat down with 3 different locations and hiring mangers. The last location had an interview with district manager told me I would hear from him in about 2 weeks never did, contacted the recruiter they said he had not made a discussion until I said I couldnt wait and took another job offer.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at United Rentals in November 2015.

    Interview

    Received a rejection letter from HR initially then a week later an email requesting I schedule a phone interview. When I responded with my availability a meeting with the hiring manager was offered instead. Met with branch and operations manager for about an hour or so. Told me I would hear back if I was selected to speak with the District Manager. I interviewed with the DM and BM a week after first interview, and received the offer the next day. Not a lot of stem questions but more questions about how you fit with the culture...

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at United Rentals in May 2014.

    Interview

    I applied online. Had to take a test during the job application. I was called a week after I applied to set up an interview. During the interview with the Branch Manager, we went over the test and what kind of experience I have. Honestly there were no STAR questions which I really liked.

    After that a second interview was set up with the Regional Manager. Asked similar questions that the Branch Manager asked, however they were more how I would fit in with the team and how I do with team environments as well as multi-tasking. After that interview I was called a week later and I got the job.

    Overall the interview is not that bad. Make sure that you are yourself and you explain to them how you approach situations. Like I said I didn't have to explain any past experiences (Star Interview), they just wanted to know how I would react to certain situations.

    Interview Questions

    • There were none. You only make the questions difficult on yourself if you don't have the experience they are actually looking for.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I might have been able to negotiate. However, I just took the offer as it is mainly because I am still somewhat entry level.
