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.

Anonymous Employee

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

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.

Interview Question – List 3 qualities you think an accountant should have.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation. Salaries are standard for Staff Accountants across the board.

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!

Interview Question – Describe a time when you went above and beyond to complete a task.   Answer Question

Staff Accountant Interview

Staff Accountant
Wilton, CT (US)

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed 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 Question – 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

Staff Accountant
Gardena, CA (US)

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Enterprise Rent-A-Car in November 2012.

Interview Details First phone interview took about 5-7 minutes, mostly to confirm you are the right person are you 18 or older, did you have car accidents in the last 3 years etc. Then was asked to give an available time for a second interview.
The second phone interview was with the same person plus the Business Manager.
How did you handle an irate customer? how did you go above and beyond to solve a task? what's the position you are applying for? example of negotiation and time-management from prior experience. Some debits and credits questions. The interview was about 30 minutes.
Third interview was face-to-face with the same two people. Questions were mostly behavioral plus they will check if you did your research on the company.
