    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer

    Interview

    To be a porter they just require you to have common sense. The work is pretty straight forward, but expect to work hard. There is alot of work to be done on the lot. If you work hard there will be opportunities to move up.

    Interview Questions

    • the most difficult asspect of the job is the work load. There is alot of work to be done on the daily basis. Costumers all want to be catered to due to the fact that it is a high end dealership. So expect to work hard and please every customer that walks threw the door.   Answer Question

    SERVICE ADVISOR Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at AutoNation in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call a day or so later to schedule an interview. Interview was a few days later. It was a typical interview, until I was asked illegal and inappropriate questions. And the job description was changed to something completely different than what I had applied for. A few days after the interview I received a phone call asking when I could start. No information on salary, or the position itself (remember it changed during the interview), the hours (they are open longer hours and Saturdays, not a 9-5 job). After asking for that information, and informed that the salary would not be sufficient, she asked what would be, I gave her a number, she said she would see what they could do and she would get back to me. I called her back a few hours later to thank her for the opportunity, but I needed to let her know it was not going to work out. I was inundated the next few days with phone calls and emails informing me I needed to schedule drug testing. Apparently, they just assumed I would accept the position.

    Interview Questions

    • How many kids I had and if I was having any more, where I am originally from. Basically questions that had nothing to do with the actual job that I was applying for.   Answer Question
