    I applied online. I interviewed at CarMax.

    Interview

    It took almost 4 weeks. The interviewer was nice and talked about his own experience in CarMax. The first 20 mins asked a few behavior questions and followed by a business case. The math was not hard but I didn't think I answered the second one correctly.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CarMax.

    Interview

    I only had a phone interview where they start off with a business case and then they describe the company. The business case involved two main questions. They give you a scenario and then they give you some time to work through the problem. The problems are not too hard, but can throw you for a loop if you are not expecting it.

    Interview Questions

    • The first question was an easy computational one and the last one involved a system of equations to solve for the answer.   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CarMax.

    Interview

    Applied through college job board. Contacted for a phone screen, and then a follow up interview call. The call lasted 1.5 hours, and included a very difficult case study that I wasn't notified about or prepared for. We were instructed not to use a computer or calculator, but the formulas required weren't exactly day to day common. The first half of the phone interview was a basic skills/situational interview.

    Interview

    Applied on campus recruiting site and was contacted within a few days to take an online math assessment. After that scheduled an interview on campus for the next week. Overall the initial interview was pretty easy and casual. Half behavioral questions and then one case study. Was invited to come up to corporate for a super interview day and that will happen in the next week or so but as of now all I know of that is that it is a few case studies and behavioral questions
