    Applied online, luckily I knew a few employees within the club who helped get my resume to the proper people. Otherwise, YOU NEED TO GO TO A CAREER FAIR. That's where the are hiring everyone right now. Got a call back from an HR screener, then had an in person interview with managers. Group interview with potential peers. Receive an offer via email followed by a call from a manager. Submit a hair drug test and do a criminal background check.

    Features Editor Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Auto Club of Southern California (Costa Mesa, CA).

    Interview

    Group interviews took place over the course of several months, first by phone since I was 250 miles away, then at the site when they decided they were interested. I was recruited by a current employee so it might been easier than usual. Once hired, I eventually participated in group interviews for later hires.

    Interview Questions

    • Give us a story idea you would select as an editor and describe how you would see it through to its completion.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They made an offer and I was expected to accept it. I tried to negotiate and was given attitude by the chief, who was not part of the interview process: "This demand makes me wonder if you're a team player." That took me aback and I had to give it some thought, but after consulting with the person who recruited me, I decided that the advantages outweighed the disadvantages (for me, at least). The chief eventually apologized after seeing me in action for a year. I've been doing well, but all raises are based on the initial salary, so it leaves a brief bad taste every now and then that dissipates when I consider some other perks of my position that may not be available to others.

    Applications Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Costa Mesa, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Auto Club of Southern California (Costa Mesa, CA).

    Interview

    Once I managed to get an interview, it was pretty easy. I met with the woman who would eventually become my team lead, she asked me a few questions (much of what she wanted to know was answered with some pre-interview skills testing) and I had a very candid conversation with her regarding where I was (I had been out of work for a few months at that point) and it really ended up being more of a chat than an interview. Your mileage may vary.

    Interview Questions

    • You're not in a hurry to get promoted, are you?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There wasn't much to it, they made me an offer and I accepted it - and it was better than my last full-time position by about 20% (but I was under market where I was previously). Work was hard to come by at that time and I needed to get to supporting my family.

    Advanced Technologies Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Auto Club of Southern California.

    Interview

    The interview was difficult due to a communication barrier, the people interviewing barely spoke English it is a wonder they can communicate amongst themselves and understand each other, three very different strong foreign accents. If you've passed the assessment, why the choose to give you another technical interview was confusing.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Auto Club of Southern California (Costa Mesa, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Very long process. Too long and during the course of interview, you are wondering what the questions are all about, surely they aren't about the job you will perform with them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Auto Club of Southern California.

    Interview

    The interview was pretty straight forward. The Manager advised he would ask behavior related questions. As long as you discuss your previous functions and how it relates to the job role, it should be simple. Overall, it was a positive experience, and it felt more like a conversation more than an interview. Once the interview was over, I was told I would be given a call within a week.
