    Interview Details

    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.

    Customer Service Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Copart.

    Interview Details

    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.

    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  San Antonio, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Copart in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the position online on 11/4/2013 and was contacted by for a phone interview a week later. My interview with Mr. Lawton went great and after several assesment online and several visits to the yard I was finally going to meet him in person and I couldn't have been more exited at the time. This was a great opportunity for my career and I was so hungry to succeed and make a difference that I prepared as much as I could to make sure I would exceed his expectations. I arrived at the yard and had to wait a couple of minutes but I didn't mind until he walked out of the office, screened me and walked back inside w/o even saying hello. I remember thinking "if this is the RM's customer service I can't even imagine what the hourly employees are like" but I pushed trough because I knew this was something I could easily fix at "my" yard. The interview went great and I was already making a mental list of all the ways I was going to take the yard to the next level but something he said at the end threw me off. He said that I "smiled too much and he didn't know if I was a fit for the office". The next step was supposedly to have a phone interview with the VP but after going through all that I never heard from anyone at COPART again. Not an email, call or text message, I even send several emails to the RM because I wanted to be sure that the position had been filled before I moved on but I never heard back from anyone. It was very disrespectful and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. REALLY?? because I smiled? I was always taught that in customer service you smile to make people feel comfortable with you and you keep smiling when the going gets tough until you have no option but to stop. I do not believe in being rude and intimidating, I don't get respect that way. I earn respect by being considerate to my peers and customers, being knowledgeable in the business and making the tough calls when is necessary. Your loss.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Copart.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed in person by the current RM and it was completed in a restaurant setting as well as in the office. The interview was very informal but I did not take it lightly; the regional was highly respectable and carried himself that way. After that interview I was interviewed, via phone, by the VP and it was also a good interview. The RM's main focus was operations, the VP's was sales.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Fairfield, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fairfield, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Copart in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process consisted of multiple interviews, followed by a background check. I had 5 rounds of interviews, with the last being face to face and by far the most difficult. The final interviewer would ask questions then cut me off in the middle of each response, it was very frustrating and a style that felt more like a police interrogation then a job interview.
