Application Details

I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in October 2014.

Interview Details

I was contacted to have an over the phone interview by a recruiter. The recruiter called 15 minutes late and there was so much noise in the background from her kids and dog. At one point, the child grabbed the phone away and I couldn't hear the question. It was really bad. I wish they would've just rescheduled the interview.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with a higher manager first. They asked several good questions based on my resume. They were very friendly and nice. They tried to ask several questions very professionally and tried not to go too much personal details. But it is good to give them some personal details.

    I applied online – interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went through the whole process, had four interviews, really thought would get the job but they made no offer. Interview process is very long. They ask almost every question that could be out there. 3rd interview was mostly repeating the first face to face interivew. four accounting questions basically is asset a debit or credit... is expense a debit or credit.. liability..revenue.. so they were really basic.. but yes i am not sure what they look for when they are searching for this position.

    Interview Details

    Seems to be the same as the management trainees. First a phone interview with HR, then an in person with HR and then in person with Accounting Supervisor, Controller and VP one right after the other. The questions were very centered around customer service. Luckily I knew this beforehand so any experience they asked about I geared towards customers. As long as you have an accounting degree they seem to trust that you have the accounting knowledge necessary.

    I applied online – interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I put in an application online. I met with a recruiter from enterprise at a school career fair. I got a call the next day for an interview. The first interview consisted of behavioral questions. The next day I got an email to submit a background check. After that, I got a phone call for a second interview. The second interview was some behavioral, some info about the company, and accounting question (How do you do a bank rec). I met the senior accountant and comptroller. The next business day I got a call for an offer. The salary was negotiable!

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    I'm writing this in hopes it will help others looking for a similar position. I just finished with the initial phone interview so I can only offer help with that. Like what others have said its a basic interview which last about ten minutes. Started off with do I have a valid drivers license and what my driving record was. Next was why I wanted to work for enterprise. All of which I was expecting. Then they threw me for a loop. Questions I thought would be asked during the second interview according to some other reviews were asked during this first phone interview. The recruiter asked about 7-8 accounting questions regarding debits and credits. Obviously being an accounting major I should have had these in the bag but with no work experience in acc and being out of school for more than a year, I was a bit rusty so be prepared!! He then asked some situational questions like how did I deal with an irate customer while still having great customer service. Some other questions were name 3/4 words I would use to describe myself and why should the company choose me over other applicants. Again this is from the first phone interview which I just finished today and I'm waiting for a call back. Good luck to whomever reads this and remember these questions aren't guaranteed to be asked.

    Interview Questions
    • I wasn't prepared for the numerous accounting questions he asked based on some other reviews on this site. Thought they would be for the second interview so I didn't study up on the basics of debits and credits. :(   Answer Question
