    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Houston, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed 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

    Can't Risk It--I Haven't Found Another Job Yet Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process wasn't bad. Recruiter called, we set up an interview, and after a few hours of interviewing, was hired on the spot. They did a good job of selling me on a good company culture, work life balance, fast upward mobility, employee value, and open and honest communication. My advice: run. I will be very leary of companies who try to sell themselves to me, instead of the other way around, in the future. They are completely different than what they portray to be during the interview process and they don't deliver on any promises. Your personal success does not matter, regardless of what they say. There is a very high turnover for a reason.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing difficult or unexpected. Just want you to talk about yourself. It's just filler to make it feel like an interview, they don't really care.   Answer Question

    Sales Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Columbus, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, GA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted within two days of submitting my application online. There was a phone interview with someone from HR, and she scheduled the interview in the store around my schedule. I had a great interview experience. The GM and SM had to keep taking turns because they were working with customers at the time of my interview. The GM was very knowledgeable about the company and the benefits. He was able to accurately set the expectation for the job description, and offered me the position on the spot. Within 30 minutes after leaving the interview, the Market manager for the district called to congratulate me, ask a few more questions, and offer me the position as well. The HR department called me back within the hour and set up a time for me to take my drug test. I started a week later.

    Interview Questions
    • The GM asked me questions about my experience, and asked for specific customer experience examples. He asked about my family life and personal life and let me know up front that the work hours are the number one reason people leave. We talked about sports and restaurants and I felt like he really tried to get to know me as a person.   Answer Question

    Managerial Interview

    Interview Details

    Had an interview over the phone with the HR and later with the hiring Manager. Called for the onsite interview with two Managers. First scheduled interview was cancelled and re-scheduled by them due to the production issues. When finally interview date came the other interviewer was late. Thought the interview went well but suddenly I was told the second group interview was going to be re-scheduled at a later date with different team since that was a better match. Well, I was never contacted as promised. Most weird interview experience I ever had as a whole.
