Interview Question – Typical questions: Where do you see yourself in 5 years? How would you convince someone to buy insurance? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
Interview Details Phone Interview - 15-20 minutes asking basic qualifications questions (driving history, bachelors degree, what attracted you to the company, etc.) followed by questions asking for specific examples of times you've handled difficult customers or gone the extra mile for a customer, times you're successfully made sales or been persuasive, times you've taken a leadership role or motivated others, what you liked and disliked about prior jobs, etc. Key is to be specific - don't say "I did that every day" and then discuss a generic job function - tell a story that you can brag about.
1st Face to Face Interview - Meeting with a company recruiter. Usually fairly laid back and casual, but still professional. Similar questions as on the phone, but in more detail. Candidates should be prepared to tell stories and share specific examples of times they have dealt with certain situations. Dress professionally, arrive early, display enthusiasm, ask questions.
2nd Face to Face Interview - Often in a branch location with an Area Manager and maybe a Branch or Assistant Manager. Similar to the first face to face interview (may even hear some of the exact same questions) because the 1st interviewer doesn't share the specific answers you gave from the 1st interview. They will be measuring your ability to impact their business and your long term desire to be successful and promotable. They want to know that they are bringing on someone with a long-term, big picture focus, someone who wants to be an MT. If you tell them that you just want a job or that you want the job because "cops and teachers aren't hiring" or because you need to pay for law school, that won't end well. It's important to understand - they are seeking career-focused people.
Branch Observation - either after the 1st or the 2nd interview. Gives the job seeker a chance to see "a day in the life" of an employee for an hour or two. Ask lots of questions, interact with the entire team (and even make small talk with the customers) and don't just sit back and watch.
3rd Face to Face Interview - back at the HQ with a higher up manager, like a Vice President or a Regional Manager. Important to explain what attracted you to the company and sell them on why you will be a great fit. Ask lots of questions, especially about long-term opportunity, mentorship, training, etc.
While all this occurs, the recruiter will run background checks on you. It's important at every turn to 1) be honest, and 2) be specific.
Interview Question – What are your greatest weaknesses?
What would your last supervisor say they'd like to see you improve at?
What was the best peice of criticism you received?
Give me an example of a time you failed at something.
What are your biggest concerns about this job? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Cut and dry - everyone starts off equal, so there isn't a real negotiation. It's like a board game - everyone starts off at "start" but how far they go and how quickly they get there depends on them and their performance.

Very Easy Interview
I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in February 2014.
Interview Details I applied online in September of 2013 and didn't hear anything from a recruiter until December. Phone interview was easy and pretty straight forward. Interviewed with another recruiter about a week later but wasn't set up for a final interview until February 2014. During the final interview process they wanted me to shadow for about two hours but they were understaffed and extremely busy. Ended up being a terribly awkward process and made me feel as if I was an unexpected burden on their day. Final interview was easy and all they wanted to know was how I had messed up at former jobs and what I was bad at. Ended up offering me a position two weeks later but after the strange experience I decided that it wasn't something I'm interested in.
Interview Question – When was a time that you couldn't control your temper? Answer Question

Interview Details Phone calls for first 2 levels of interview made it very difficult to get a feel for the company. Very generic questions, basically just went over resume. Third interview would have been in person. Both phone interviews lasted roughly 30 minutes and at least a third of that was discussing the job responsibilities .

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in June 2013.
Interview Details I filled out an online application and I received a phone call requesting an interview a few days later. They were very open with my schedule which was very helpful because I wasn't quite living in the location in which I applied. She was very friendly and truly was stoked about her company. She asked typical interview questions and spent a good deal of time educating me on the growth opportunities. We scheduled a second interview for a few days later at the end of the interview. My second interview was a two part process. The first hour I sat in the lobby of one of the stores and observed before I started my interview. He asked me about what I observed as well as some standard interview questions, specific situations, etc. I received a phone call the next day scheduling my third and final interview. This was the hardest of them all. She asked very specific sales questions and pinpointed weaknesses in my resume and experience and questioned how I would keep up with other trainees with experience. The interview went decently, however I was not offered the position. I was notified, via email, a few days later.
Interview Question – I see that your experience in sales is limited to a small inventory of medical products, this position is very competitive and you will be amongst others with more sales experience, how do you plan to keep up with others? Answer Question
