    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Zipcar (Cambridge, MA) in July 2012.

    Interview

    The process went fairly smooth. I attended a job fair that was put on by Zipcar. I was able to discuss the position with another Member Services Specialist. After the job fair I received a call to come in for an interview with a manager. I had 2 interviews that day. Each interview lasted about 30 minutes.

    After the interview I was contacted 4 days later and offered the job over the phone. I had to wait an additional 2 weeks for the background check to be completed. My first day of work was aproximately 3 weeks after the job fair.

    • The questions seemed pretty straight forward. They were the typical behavioral style interview questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    For the member service specialist they have a set starting pay. There is rarely any room for negotiation
