    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at CarMax in December 2011.

    Interview

    The interviews they use are very standard SBO, Situation Behavior Outcome or STAR interview guides. But in addition to what they use for their interview they're looking for an "it factor" which all of the people you interview with seem to think is something different. There is also a general confusion among the people I interviewed with about the career path at Carmax.
