I have been working at Cars.com full-time (more than an year)Pros
Great opportunities with fun challenges around every corner. The company has a very healthy culture and continues to strengthen due to its investments in the workforce. You get to work with some truly talented people with highly decorated backgrounds.
Transparency within the company is a big part of the culture. On any given day you can find yourself casually chatting it up with a senior member. Everyone is very approachable and willing to lend a hand.
The new CEO Alex Vetter is a visionary and highly respected leader in the company. And the Gannett acquisition is proving be an added bonus for the company.Cons
Work-life balance can be tricky at times, but the company offers many incentives to make up for the effort put in.Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks – interviewed at Cars.com.Interview Details
I applied online and received a call from a recruiter about a week later. After that, I was asked to interview face-to-face with my would-be supervisor and two of my would-be peers. About another week after that, I was asked to meet with two directors and the VP of Operations. All of these interviews were separate one-on-ones, which seemed unnecessary because many of the questions repeated from interviewer to interviewer.
Everyone was very friendly and I was sold on the job and the company. All of the questions were essentially about my management style/personality. They didn't seem to care much about my technical expertise.
After about another week the recruiter called me and told me that they went with someone else that had more experience. They said that they really liked me and would keep me in mind if any other positions opened up (everyone says that). However, they did contact me a few months later about another position, but didn't select me for that one either.....which I felt was a waste of my time after already interviewing 7 times with 7 different people in the department.Interview Questions
