    Finance & Insurance Manager Interview

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

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at Group 1 Automotive.

    Interview Details

    Group 1 is pleasant to interview with. They don't do 'textbook' and overbearing type interview questions during the interview process which I believe to be a very smart move. They are not softies and they are looking for people who will be successful, but they allow you to be yourself and recognize that different personalities attract and compliment the different clients that come through the door. So just take a breath, look sharp, be your best professional self and don't overthink it. They are good people and are not looking to see how you handle a question thrown out of left field as their basis to determine whether or not you will cut it in this business.

    Management Program Interview

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

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Group 1 Automotive in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had the worst interviewing experience!! While an undergrad, I applied for the position. I had a successful phone interview, a face to face interview with this company. I was told I would hear something from HR within a week. About a week passed and still nothing so I decided to call her. She informed me they were still conducted interviews and I should hear something soon. About a week went by and I still hadn't heard from her so I called again! She informed I was a candidate for a 3rd interview and i would be required to take a drug test. She also said I would receive an email underlying the detailed information that day, I didn’t receive anything! I called back about a week later and to my surprise nothing, I left numerous messages. On top of that, the front desk rep was rude . The next day she responded to me in an email that I was no longer a candidate and the THREE positions have been filed!!!! This company was a waste of my time and money. In my opinion they knew they weren’t going to hire me in the first place. The company just needed more women to apply to the program for whatever records and to continue receiving gov. grants!!!
