Mateial Coordinator Interview

Mateial Coordinator

I applied online and interviewed at Penske.

Interview Details – Interview was pretty simple. They asked straight questions did not try and drill you. The Interviewers were not very thorough as far as what the job entailed and what your working schedule would be, but everything worked out for the best.

DMV / TITLE ADMINISTRATOR Interview

DMV / TITLE ADMINISTRATOR
San Jose, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Penske in September 2008.

Interview Details – Office manager was very friendly and warm however the interview took much longer than expected due to her personal conversation rather than focusing on the interview itself. She didn't seem to know what she was looking for as far as what position she wanted to fill or what she wanted the job responsibilites to to be. She also had not yet received authorization to hire someone even the job had been vacant for several weeks.

Interview Question – what do you like to do in your spare time   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Individual dealerships, managers, and employess had no ability to make any descisions. Everything had to be approved by corporate headquarters. I believe in order maintain customer service and loyalty decisions have to be able to be made when the customer is at the dealership and looking for a resolution, not several days later.
