    I have been working at CARFAX full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Best people in the business.
    Best tools available.
    Laser-like focus on being the best as a complete solution for the car dealer and the same focus on helping the used car owner in every aspect from buying to servicing to selling.
    Always wanting team members be more successful.
    Creating a work/life experience for the team.
    Very transparent about success or areas for improvement.
    Opportunity to go others places in the comany.
    Senior team longevity.

    Cons

    I really can’t think of anything that sticks out.
    There are always going to be frustrations in any workplace but the pros make the cons easy to move past.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing because I want to retire from CARFAX.

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CARFAX (Columbia, MO (US)) in April 2012.

    I did an HR phone interview and then a technical phone interview. The HR interview consisted of general behavioral questions and my past experience. The technical interview consisted of specific programming and database knowledge.
