    Inside the Swift, Strategic World of Used Car Auctions

    Once the 2011 Impala has been rolled into place, the bidding begins immediately. Standing near the back, by the free earplug dispenser, I make eye contact with the auctioneer, and quickly look away: He doesn't need much of a sign to think you want to jack up the price, and I'm just here to watch.

    I have been working at DriveTime Automotive Group full-time (More than 3 years)


    Decent Pay, Caring Upper Management (For this Region), Our store particularly feels more like a family! I've been to other Drivetime location and they simply do not feel like our store. We get this complement from both customers and other employees so I know I'm not simply imagining it.


    Hours can be very very long. On average I will clock in about 96-100+ hours every 2 weeks. It's getting better. But, it can still be very very long. This almost made me look for a job and I was even willing to take a pay cut. But, this particular store if very hard to leave.

    It was very easy. More conversation than an actual interview. Just basically wanted to know if I could do the job. I didn't actually apply for the job, I was recruited by HR.
