    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at United Rentals in February 2017.

    Interview

    The process was fairly quick. After I applied, I almost immediately had a request for an interview with a recruiter. After my recruiter interview, I moved on to the hiring manager and then the Program Director. It was painless if you knew about the company, industry, and sales.

    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    All applications are taken on line for internal and external applicants. Interviews are conducted with a branch manager and district sales manager. Time from applying to interview takes a long time. Jobs tend to be filled internally before the open positions are even posted to the public. Come prepared to talk about growing the business. Safety culture is a key to the over company outlook.
