    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Copart (Atlanta, GA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Met with the GM and AGM on site and discussed the position for about an hour. Interview was informal. All question were standard typr interview questions. I got the impression that the GM had a lot of autonomy in the interview process. In other words, I would expect the interview may be totally different in a different location and with a different GM.

    Some interviews are good. What is wierd is expect marketing to interview you as an engineer. a joke.
    There was no one available with my expertise to even interview me. So I saw a marketing person, and business analyst, and bugs bunny

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Copart.

    Interview

    They never really interviewed me formally. I met the GM at Starbucks and asked him a little about the job and he said he would call me back. When I didn't hear back I called him and they told me to come in and fill out the paperwork.

    Negotiation

    They usually start at a lower pay rate. You can negotiate up, aim high.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Copart.

    Interview

    Interview was detailed and thorough. 6 out of 10 for difficulty. Was asked questions about my knowledge of the company, so I'm glad I did my research. Also impressed with a list of my own questions. Managers were nice and personable. Was advised of multiple, detailed job duties that would keep me busy 100% of my day with no downtime. Certain duties timed by computer system. Was presented as extremely stressful environment.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Pay is extremely low for expected duties. Very below average. Managers seemed very discouraged and disappointed to have someone with exact qualifications to perform all duties knowing that corporate would only allow up to $12 an hour with only a possibility of up to 3% raise after a year, if and only if company allows for it. Seemed like a great company other than their terrible pay. Would have cut my pay by $5 to accept offer.

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Copart (Dallas, TX) in March 2014.

    Interview

    External Vendor connected with me to arrange the technical interview and scheduled the technical Interview. I believe there are only two rounds, One telephonic and one face to face. However I did not get the feedback from the staffing firm even when the interviewer had expressed interest for getting me for the face to face round.
