Account Representative Interview

Account Representative
Claremore, OK

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at America's Car-Mart in December 2013.

Interview Details – It took them a month to finally tell me I was hired even though they made the decision to hire me after my first interview. The interview was comfortable and I did not feel intimidated. The questions were relevant and didn't using confusing language. The manager seemed interested in what I had to say and was very friendly.

Interview Question – What would you do in the situation of a customer who is past due wanting to trade of their high balance vehicle?   Answer Question

Office Clerk Interview

Office Clerk
Claremore, OK

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at America's Car-Mart.

Interview Details – Called about the position after seeing it on indeed.com, went in for a couple interviews with the GM which were very laid back and comfortable, did a drug test and that was about it. Simple, easy process.

Interview Question – There were no real difficult questions. When applying for a sales position, I was asked how I had done in sales previously.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiation phase for me personally. Try to get as much as you can at hiring, you won't get much more after.

General Manager Interview

General Manager
Lebanon, MO

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 days - interviewed at America's Car-Mart in April 2013.

Interview Details – The district/regional recruiter set-up an interview at a local dealership. The interview process was very in-depth and she did her job well. The strange part was she brought in the local general manager at the end, kind of gave it a close-the-deal feel. The rest of the questions were pretty good. She did a good job selling the company.

Interview Question – Where did you develop your most management skills.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – The money was not good for a family of five. If I were in my 20's and only had my wife, I would jump at it.
