    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at America's Car-Mart.

    Interview

    Detailed, a little tedious and management had to fit me in between retail customers problems and or issues. The manager I met with, made me wait over 45 minutes to meet with him. He claimed he had an unexpected conference call he had to take and he could not re-schedule. That was very unprofessional and it frustrated me. I worked for this company for 1 year, I worked my tail off, worked ridiculous hours, was very dedicated and in the end...it was all for nothing.

    Interview Questions

    • They wanted to know if I was a Christian or not, and I am not.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Simple, they made written offer, I countered back, they agreed and that was it.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at America's Car-Mart (Claremore, OK).

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at America's Car-Mart (Claremore, OK) in December 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at America's Car-Mart (Lebanon, MO) in April 2013.

    Interview

    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.

    Reasons 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.
