I applied through other source and the process took 1 week - interviewed at CarMax in October 2013.
Interview Details – Most people hired from Job Fairs or sometimes the store has an Open House. They show you around and have one on one interviews afterwards. Dress business appropriate. Women welcome. Be prepared to wait around for hours but it can be worth it. You will usually have another interview with two people in the office. One taking notes, the other talking.
Interview Question – I can't remember. It seemed like a pretty straightforward interview. They asked for example of how I would deal with a particular situation or how I have handled this in the past. If you get stuck don't panic. They just want to get to know you. Your personality is an important factor. View Answer
Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation. Only thing you can do it say any particular hours up front that you cannot work, such as Sunday morning if you are an avid church goer. They are pretty respectful about this if it is discussed early on.

Interview Details – So the way it usually works there will be a first phone call interview after you submit you application. Pretty generic stuff how did you hear about us what are you motivations as a person etc. after that its a interview in person if you are selected for it of course you will sit down with two managers. Which will ask you questions basically same stuff as the phone interview but they will throw in questions about what you do in this scenario or this scenario basically there seeing how you handle pressure and its okay to say you don't know the answer. But follow up with I will find out for you if it is a question that requires that. after that once selected for the third interview its to see how you react to showing product to a customer and they will usually make there decision there.
Interview Question – Really wasnt one for me but for a new person to sales I would say the presntation of the car. Make sure you read about the veichles they tell you to know. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I cant speak of specifics but it is resoneable pay if you work correctly meaning calling all your customers that are active EVERY DAY. For cold leads do it for once a week or month whatever feals right just to show them you still care about them and their business. Other than that follow the process down to a T!!

Interview Details – Had a great phone interview within a week of applying and received a lot of great information about the company but just a standard "tell me about a time" interview. Followed up with an in person interview. The interviewer seemed annoyed and unprepared and very unorganized. He looked over my resume while I was sitting there and at one point had to have me explain it, though my resume was setup in a very simple standard and easy to follow. I turned down the job offer because I decided that if that was the location I would be working for I did not think it would be a good fit for me.
Interview Question – Very straight forward questions but come prepared with a lot of specific examples of things you've accomplished or worked hard on. Answer Question
Reason for Declining – The phone interviewer was great and professional but after talking to the people at the store I would be working at I decided that I would not fit in there.
