    Sales Manager In Training Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    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.

    Operations Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was initially contacted by a recruiter who found my resume on CareerBuilder; after I spoke on the phone with my recruiter, she set me up with the General Manager at the dealership closest to me. I actually didn't get the position I was interviewing for (sales), but the GM and my recruiter worked together to find a position in the dealership for me to get me some more experience before I move to the sales floor. I have been in the Operations position since I started in August and I couldn't be happier. I am so glad that my GM didn't just tell me no, but wanted to find the best fit for me.

    Interview Questions
    • I really don't remember much of the interview, but I do remember that it was only about 15 minutes and it was a pretty standard sales interview.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I didn't negotiate since I am new to the car sales industry, and it is more than I was making at my previous job.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group.

    Interview Details

    I went through two interviews in the same day, first one is with the GM of the store and then the Regional Mgr., if they really like you then they will set up the second interview the same day or soon...also when they tell you to talk to other sales reps. after the first interview, this is a critical step because they want to see how the other advisors feel about you as well, so be energetic, ask quality questions and be extremely motivated because if the other advisors dont approve of you, the you may not get hired

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a dayinterviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    They normally hire through a staffing agency. You start off normally with a group interview where 5-6 interviewers ask multiple questions to 5-8 candidates. Then candidates are called out of the room one by one. You go into a room where you have 1 or 2 people interviewing you. However they continue to ask you questions as you wait around the round table. After the interview they walk away to discuss if they are hiring you. They either tell you that you need to take a drug test, which they provide or the agency will call you (meaning you did not get the position). They look for outgoing people that see themselves moving up in the company.

    Interview Questions
    • What is your ideal position, and how does it correlate with the position you are applying for?   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    There was no negotiation because I was hired through a temp agency. I asked for a raise after my 90 days but it was brushed aside.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    My first step was a phone call with a recruiter. She asked if i could drive a manual car, be on my feet all day, intermittent weather. After that she set me up an in person interview with a manager who told me about the job basically. Then there was a second interview with a general manager and the regional manager. They asked me about if i liked cars, can perform minor maintenance and my ability to do physical labor for eight hours a day. They let you hangout with an employee in the same position to get a fell for their job while they make their decision. I cant remember if they tell you you got the job before you leave of if they give you a call. Their hiring process is also very slow, it took me about a month from the recruiter to my start date.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult was when they asked if i could perform the physical labor.   View Answer
