    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CarMax.

    Interview

    It is a lengthy interview process. The application is long, followed by a long questionnaire. Once you get a first interview, you fill out another questionnaire. Depending on your responses from that questionnaire you may have a pre interview to clear up answers before proceeding. There are at least 3 formal interviews before you meet with a district manager to give the final decision, but only once you have passed the long personality test you are given.

    Interview Questions

    • Describe a time when you took a risk.   Answer Question
    • Describe a time you had to make a decision that was not the popular one and what was the result?   Answer Question
    • Name a time when you went above and beyond.   Answer Question
    • Describe a time you had to resolve a conflict and what was the result?   Answer Question
