    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at XTRA Lease (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Phone and in personal interview. They did not have it together at all and I never received any call or email confirming the result. Very unprofessional. This process was not what I expected after having a very good conversation with the district manager.

    Operations Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at XTRA Lease (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    Brief phone discussion.
    In-person interview.
    Rejection.

    This position is obviously grunt-work. You wear a neon yellow safety vest. Thankfully it is not cold-calling sales. Of course, they attempt to make it sound a little more glamorous than it actually is. They brag about their position in the much-coveted big rig leasing industry with statistics and trivia that a select few are interested in. I don't know why a university degree is required to hop into trucks for damage inspections or to answer phones and read from a script.

    If you can get it, take it and keep looking for something better. If you meet the unnecessary requirements for this job, you should get a better one at another company.

    Interview Questions

    • Many "tell me about a time when..." type prompts
      - had a difficult customer
      - took initiative
      - demonstrated safe behavior

      Salary Expectation? (they said it was "about 37k/yr"
      Why this position?

    Operations Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Nashville, TN
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at XTRA Lease (Nashville, TN) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Very lengthy interview process. First interview is with the Branch Operations Manager and is a bit casual. The Second is with the Regional Operations Manager or Area Manager and is more serious. If they like you after the interviews they will bring you in for a 4 hour job shadow. Keep in mind, they will have several candidates through the process so don't expect to get an offer even if you make it to the job shadow. When first offered the position I was on the fence because I though it would be a blue collar type of job, but I accepted anyway. Six months later, I was very wrong and I'm really glad I accepted the offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at XTRA Lease.

    Interview

    The application is rather lengthy and consists of several parts, including a personality test. The interview was a group interview with the OM and the Branch manager. It consisted of 2 parts. The first was an informal interview with the branch manager and the operations manager. The second part was a structured interview with miscellaneous situation tasks, the managers made it seem like the structured part was merely a formality. After the initial interview is an on the job observation sort of thing. To my understanding, hiring and branch practices, though structured by corporate, are determined and implemented by branch management.
