    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Phoenix, AZ (US)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted resume to recruiter. Interview was set up a few days later. Was told to dress in business casual and that I would likely meet 5-8 people but they could not really tell me who for sure ahead of time. Arrived 15 min early as is custom. Made me wait at least 15-20 before bringing me back and it wasn't even the person who was supposed to I found out. Started right off the bat asking why I want to leave current employer, what don't I like about my current position. What are my weaknesses, strengths, what was in my last performance review. Does title mean everything to you. Lots of questions not really pertaining to any actual work experience and zero situational questions. 3 rounds of two people for 2 hrs when was only supposed to be 90 min. Gave brain teasers basically just to "show" they are smarter than you. The most negative interview I have ever done. To say the least I didn't make the 2nd round yet kept me over time and would have brought more ppl if they could. Heard denial by end of the day.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Mesa, AZ (US)) in February 2015.

    Interview

    No effort to get to know me at all. Just badgering about previous pay and reasons for departure, mixed in with cliche interview questions. They told me that the position is not guaranteed, that I would be demoted into collections after 3 months unless I wanted to get my 4 year degree. I have a 2 year degree and 10 years phone and internet sales experience, and asked if I am a top performer, can they make an exception. Was told most likely not. I shadowed a rep and the job was really ghetto. Apparently you need a Bachelor's degree to set appointments with Laqueefa Jefferson in Alabama to get a ride to a sub prime car lot. Bonus relies on company numbers and is capped. I was overqualified and they knew it, so they didn't hire me.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group in February 2015.

    Interview

    First I had a phone interview with in HR associate. An interview with the general manager at the site then followed. For my final interview I spoke with the regional manager over the phone which was supposed to be a Skype interview. Overall the interview was very laid-back. My advice would be to seem as outgoing as possible to land the job. In the interview ask as many questions as possible.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (San Antonio, TX (US)).

    Interview

    Hiring recruiter is VERY aggressive and persistent, as I had never applied for his job on any job board or website. She left VM, e-mails, text messages and called constantly.

    Interviewed initially with the 2 General Managers that had opening in their stores on opposite sides of town. Casual but still with an agenda. 2nd portion of the interview was with the Regional manager, who seemed much more intimidating but also less interested and distracted. The regional manager asked initially about any hand/visible tattoos as a candidate before me had these.

    Interview was very calm, and for a previous hiring manager myself, this was pretty typical. The GM that was going to take me to his store rounded out the interview and confirmed schedules and start date, pending the background check pass.

    I did have to orchestrate most of my own background check to move it along.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions about potential visible tattoos or my facial hair.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    None needed, competitive salary and generous commission rates.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group in January 2015.

    Interview

    I received a call from a recruiter wanting to set up an interview. However, I wasn't able to answer and had to return the call until the next day. I wanted to have the interview during the current week but the only time available was a few hours later on the same day I returned the call.

    I spoke with three current employees over the phone. They asked me behavioral questions as well as personal questions. The interviewers seemed relaxed throughout the whole interview and they kept telling me about the incredible company culture. So it was easy to get in the groove of the interview process.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Atlanta, GA (US)) in January 2015.

    Interview

    I submitted my application online through linkedin. I received an email within days scheduling a skype interview. I had 2 interviews but was not offered a position. The main disappointment came when the 2nd interviewer never got online to skype. I was dressed in my suit and waited for a him to call, yet I never received anything until the following day.

    Interview Questions

    • Very basic interview questions. The recruiter was simply getting to know me and my goals. The first interview went great. I was told I would have a follow up skype interview in 2 days, however the manager did not ever call. Eventually, he ended up calling asking very similar questions. I was not offered the position.   Answer Question
