Some people hate their jobs. We don’t hire those people…

We hire people who want what a career with Sixt offers:

  • One word: Excitement! We get the job done and have a great time doing it –with beer, parties, competitions, prizes and more
  • Quality reputation. We’ve met the highest standards of customer service around the globe, since 1912—making us a favorite among travelers

Mission

We rent cars. Our roots are German. Ambition and precisionhave been the keys to our growth as we strive to make the world mobile. We bring pride to the Sixt family by ensuring that their values remain engrained in our company’s culture and by supplying luxury cars at economy prices to every customer. Sixt doesn’t practice “You get what you pay for” when it comes to our customers or employees—we give you more, as in BMW or Mercedes-Benz more. Since our expansion to the United States, we’ve also expanded our capacity to provide fulfilling careers for our diverse associates.



Values

Everyone has ‘em. If not, you should get some. They’ve been an important part of upholding our culture, companywide for over 100 years.

In the words of Erich Sixt, “Good is not good if better is expected.”

Sixt believes in the power of innovation. We don't need a crystal ball to recognize the customer and employee needs of tomorrow. We have the Sixt sense, which has enabled us to thrive for over a century.

We value flexibility. Some of us are yogis, but that’s not the type of flexibility we’re referring to. We mean being able to adapt to different cities, states and countries – as well as new technologies.

Cultural diversity: We hire people from all over the world. We’re all bright minds working towards the same goals. You’ll be surrounded by friendly, welcoming peers. Because your success makes them look good too!

Boring is not acceptable. We prefer excitement, every single day. So sure, we’ll work hard as hell. But we’ll have fun doing it.

You expect it, and so do our customers. Premium service is our standard.

We strongly encourage an entrepreneurial spirit. We love people who take action and show us how much horsepower they’ve got!



Management Trainee Program

Interested in building a network by meeting people from all over the country—scratch that, the WORLD?! How about hands-on experience to develop your business and sales skills? Would you like breaking out of your comfort zone and engaging your entrepreneurial spirit at the ground level of one of the most expansive and cutting-edge companies in the US? Then your new game plan should be to become a Management Trainee for Sixt!

Trainees are among the most proficient and innovative assets we have. After graduating from the program, each Trainee has the opportunity to open or take over their very own branch and create a new consumer market in a fresh location. They are given responsibility for a team and tasks, including being the face of their very own business—it's up to them how to make it grow!

Rotations: Miami Airport, South Beach, Atlanta Airport, Los Angeles Airport, Detroit Airport and Berlin Tegel Airport for 2 weeksRotations: Seattle Pike Place, Orlando, Miami Beach 5th Street and London. I’d never been to Europe—it was a great experience spending 2 weeks there!

Best restaurants: So many in Berlin… I went somewhere different every night and had some amazing döner kebabs.

Best restaurants: Seattle: depends on your taste—lots of amazing food. Orlando: Cheddars! Miami Beach: Panzerotti’s. London: The Pheasant or Harrods.
Must see/do: In Berlin, it’s a Fat Tire Bike ride. Tour the whole city for 4 hours and learn the history. Climb to the top of the “Chick on the Stick” aka Golden Else. It’s a huge climb, so bring water. But the view is amazing. You can see 4 major parts of the city, and the detail of the art on the Golden Else is out of this world!Must see/do: Seattle: hike, watersports, eat, the bars. Orlando: theme parks, alligator adventures, swim with manatees, bar scene. Miami Beach: relax at the nice hotels, beach, day parties, scuba, clubs.

Favorite part about current position: I’m 22 and I run a business. If you want a change in your life, this position will bring it!

    I have been working at Sixt full-time

    Pros

    Great, collaborative environment that provides a unique opportunity for professionals to start or further develop their career. At Sixt, I have been exposed to projects far beyond that of my peers from similar backgrounds and have been trusted with responsibilities that are befitting of someone with way more experience. Sixt USA has the combination of a start up approach, mixed with the backing of a massive, successful organization in Germany. Couldn't recommend this company more!

    Cons

    Those who work hard and perform are rewarded quickly. There is tremendous growth opportunity here. This is not the place to coast by.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sixt.

    Interview

    I was scheduled for a phone interview with the recruiter and then scheduled for a Skype interview with the next level manager--which was blown off. I initiated contact at the scheduled time and she never answered. I attempted to email and call the recruiter and she was non-responsive, as well.
