    I interviewed with the Vice President of HR, General Manager and had to present to some of the managers of the dealer. Everyone that I sat down to interview with was friendly and inviting. They really just wanted to get to know why I wanted the position. They explained their vision and I felt that my skills and background would be a good fit.

    Receptionist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Penske Motor Group.

    Interview Details

    I went through AppleOne and they contacted Lexus of Stevens Creek for me to set up an interview. I'm not sure if they still use agencies, but if not, you can go online, or in person and fill out an application. Most of the time, they are trying to hire quickly so they will contact you within a week if they believe you are a good candidate. My initial interview was with the administrative manager. I was called back for a 2nd interview with the Service & Parts director, and called a 3rd time for an interview with the GM. I think they have minimized that to 2 in house interviews now. I believe the whole process took 2 weeks.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Penske Motor Group in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was called because they saw my resume online and were interested. I came in the next day and interviewed 3 people over 3 hours. I came in for a second interview and spoke with two more people. On my 3rd interview i spoke with the president for about 15 minutes. The formal questions they asked were behavioral based which were not too hard. They were more interested in my experience.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Penske Motor Group in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Seems to be a great organization with a great culture. Due to private company, financials are hard to find and growth is difficult to verify.

    I have interviewed twice, both were in person interviews. Interviewers tried to run behavioral based interviewed but didn't do too well. It was not a well conducted interview.
