Human Resources Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA
Application Details

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at CarMax in May 2014.

Interview Details

Very long and tedious process. Went several weeks after first interview to get contacted for second. Interviewed with multiple leaders including the head of HR. Acted a little pompous. All behavior based questions. They did not want to hear anything about strategy. Just tactics. If you don't give them the exact answer they're looking for, you're done.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at CarMax in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Long process and at times quite disorganized and even unprofessional (left me sitting in lobby for 30 mins b/c had gaps in schedule). Extremely time consuming so only go for it if you really, really want it. Also, had no interview agenda to provide me. Poor at returning calls.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at CarMax.

    Interview Details

    After initial contact, multiple phone interviews and on-site interviews. Asked a number of times to reschedule for no significant reason, and told after "final candidate interview" that decision would be forthcoming in 3 days or sooner, then waited over a week. Not a very positive interviewing experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing difficult or unexpected in interviews; skills testing included plenty of math and comparative evaluation of reporting, with no measurement of HR skills.   Answer Question
