    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group in April 2010.

    Interview

    I met with the Regional Mgr and the Regional HR Mgr in Charlotte, NC. HR Mgr is a woman who has been with the co. 6 mos and has no sales/auto background and it shows. Why she was even there I have no idea except that the Reg. Mgr is so inept he needed help. Regional Mgr was poorly dressed, (they both were) very unprofessional and absolutely clueless as to how to conduct an interview. I met them at a DT store, what a dump. They seemed irritated at my past high income and spent most of the time asking me questions that were specific to their company policy, which I would have no real way of answering. They spoke very poorly of their customers and the Reg. Mgr used profanity in the interview. Ignorant, amatuerish and low class. I never even got a call back on their decision and I was referred by a current employee. I would have declined any offer regardless.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Phoenix, AZ) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewed & asked around. Received a call to schedule a phone interview. Then was asked to come in for a one on one. It took about 3 hours with the 1:1, drug test, panel interview, skills test. The people were nice, culture seemed fresh. Formerly Ugly Duckling.

    Interview Questions

    • Have you had to write responses to customers. Would you please do a writing sample?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    If you are considering this company don't put all your eggs in one basket, do some comparison shopping prior to going in. This company changes a lot. If that makes you a little scared, ask around and read online reviews before you interview. I would also recommend looking at a few others prior to this one.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Phoenix, AZ) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Submitted resume to recruiter. Interview was set up a few days later. Was told to dress in business casual and that I would likely meet 5-8 people but they could not really tell me who for sure ahead of time. Arrived 15 min early as is custom. Made me wait at least 15-20 before bringing me back and it wasn't even the person who was supposed to I found out. Started right off the bat asking why I want to leave current employer, what don't I like about my current position. What are my weaknesses, strengths, what was in my last performance review. Does title mean everything to you. Lots of questions not really pertaining to any actual work experience and zero situational questions. 3 rounds of two people for 2 hrs when was only supposed to be 90 min. Gave brain teasers basically just to "show" they are smarter than you. The most negative interview I have ever done. To say the least I didn't make the 2nd round yet kept me over time and would have brought more ppl if they could. Heard denial by end of the day.

    Interview Questions

    • If you could give a 360 review of your current manager what would you say? Why are you looking to leave? Please explain your exits from past jobs. If your current job gave you a counter would you stay?   Answer Question

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Mesa, AZ) in February 2015.

    Interview

    No effort to get to know me at all. Just badgering about previous pay and reasons for departure, mixed in with cliche interview questions. They told me that the position is not guaranteed, that I would be demoted into collections after 3 months unless I wanted to get my 4 year degree. I have a 2 year degree and 10 years phone and internet sales experience, and asked if I am a top performer, can they make an exception. Was told most likely not. I shadowed a rep and the job was really ghetto. Apparently you need a Bachelor's degree to set appointments with Laqueefa Jefferson in Alabama to get a ride to a sub prime car lot. Bonus relies on company numbers and is capped. I was overqualified and they knew it, so they didn't hire me.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group in February 2015.

    Interview

    First I had a phone interview with in HR associate. An interview with the general manager at the site then followed. For my final interview I spoke with the regional manager over the phone which was supposed to be a Skype interview. Overall the interview was very laid-back. My advice would be to seem as outgoing as possible to land the job. In the interview ask as many questions as possible.
