Rental Car Driver Interview Questions and Answers

1. How do you feel about working in a position which is not a desk job?

The main reason that I opted to work in a car driver capacity was my strong desire to travel. I don’t enjoy a desk job as much as one in which I get to explore the great outdoors, even if it is in an urban setting.

2. What is the one thing that you really like about this work?

While I like working as a driver, the fact that I get to meet so many different types of people each day makes it worth my while. Even with the limited interaction that I have with passengers, it is great to know so many different personalities in a day.

3. In the role of a rental car driver, what have been your main activities in the past?

While working as a rental car driver, I have been actively inspecting assigned vehicles to ensure that they are in good working order, performing regular and preventative maintenance work on cars, handling detailing activities, mapping short routes to destinations, driving cars to pick-up areas, and then to endpoints, and collecting the fare.

4. As far as skills are concerned, what are the three main skills that you believe one should possess while working as a rental car driver?

I am of the opinion that rental car drivers need to possess a great personal manner, exceptional customer service skills, and the ability to drive assigned cars in an urgent, yet safe manner.

5. Speaking of safety, what do you do to make sure that the car that you are driving is safe?

I always perform a thorough inspection of the car that I am assigned before I take it out. Making sure that preventative maintenance is performed on it is another way of ensuring that it does not break down mid-haul.

6. What has been the most harrowing experience that you have had while on the road?

I was once taking a family to the airport when a sudden deluge made it impossible to reach on time because the roads were flooded. But the family needed to get to the airport on time, or they would have been late to check-in – on an international flight. It took all that I had to be take alternate routes, and get to the airport on time. It was quite harrowing because I had two responsibilities on my shoulders – to get to the airport on time and to make sure that the passengers were safe.
