    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kennesaw, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at CarMax in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    It was pretty standard stuff. Just past experience. The job is entry level, porting cars around the lot. Seems like you can get promoted if you put time into it and do good work. You answer situational questions with at least two different managers. And then there's the computer portion that basic asks if you do drugs or steal. They said they would let me know in a week. Overall good experience.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at CarMax.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was a bit intense. I had a total of 4 face to face interviews. 3 of which I had in 1 day and I was there from about 9-4. There were a lot of times I wasn't too sure what was next. A lot of paperwork, and tests to make sure you are the "RIGHT FIT". For the most part, everyone was nice and professional. The only one I didn't like was the final one with the HR Manager.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were pretty standard "Tell me about a time when". The use the STAR method.   Answer Question

    Attorney (In-house) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kennesaw, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Kennesaw, GA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CarMax in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The application online took about 45 minutes with an unnecessary amount of behavioral questions that were annoying and repetitive. I received a phone call from an in-house recruiter a few days later. I had a phone interview for about 30 minutes with behavioral questions that were at this time relevant. Questions focused on past work experiences...i.e. Tell me about a time that you had difficulty meeting a deadline, etc. About a week after the phone interview I was called by someone else to come in for interview at the main office in Kennesaw. I went in for an interview where I answered some more ridiculous questions via computer and signed off on background check for criminal, credit, education, employment AND social security. Further, I was drug tested on the spot at their facility on same day of interview. I interviewed with 4 people and took about 4 hours. I had extensive background checks before but this is ridiculous and over burdensome for the interview process. It should be done after an offer is made.

    Interview Questions
    • Behavioral questions Tell me about a time when....How would your supervisor describe you...Tell me about the most difficult decision you had to make...Tell me about a time you were successful in a project and state what the process and results were   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at CarMax in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    You first take a test and if you pass that you move into a small room and meet with HR. They ask you about 30 questions and write down all of your answers. After that I met with 2 managers who asked me 30 different questions. All in all I was there for 3hrs. They said they would let me know either way which they did not and I found so rude. Pay is low about 11hr but you can wear jeans to work.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at CarMax in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    Process took roughly 3 weeks. First round was on-campus and consisted of one case interview, where the invitation to the superday was contingent entirely upon the outcome of the case. Was invited to Atlanta area for an on-site interview where I went through roughly 5 case interviews and one behavioral interview. Very long day of interviews and was contacted two weeks later with a rejection email.

    I applied through a job posting on campus. Had a phone interview about 2 weeks later. The interview was about an hour long and was mostly one large case but there were some behavioral questions. Got invited to a superday down at their headquarters in Kennesaw (Auto Finance). Superday consisted of 4 case interviews, 1 behavioral interview, a laid back conversation and the drug test. It was longer than the other super days I attended. I interviewed on a Friday and got a call on Monday that I was being extended an offer.

    Interview Details

    I did the phone interview with HR and that went great. She asked me what position I was interested in partime collections or fulltime/partime customer service. I told her full time customer service. She invited me to come in for a face to face interview. I came in for the interview did a skills test and the odd thing about the interview was a collections manager interviewed me. She asked me what position I was interested in and I told her customer service..Im really bummed that I did not get the position.
