    Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Phoenix, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at AutoNation (Phoenix, AZ) in September 2019.

    Interview

    Expect to wait for a little bit after arriving for interview.
    Met with 3 different managers for each interview I had at 2 different automation dealerships. Explained my solid experience with providing 5 star customer service (I worked at a 5 star establishment in past). I had NO relevant retail experience so I really sold myself by talking more about customer service and how I resolved issues and approached situations while remaining composed at that other job. They seemed to value this customer service attribute WAY more than having experience. I laughed a lot and was very friendly. I interviewed at 2 Autonation dealerships and when doing this I was offered job on the spot at both locations.

    Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Spokane, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at AutoNation (Spokane, WA) in January 2019.

    Interview

    I applied online and the process took about 1+ week. They reached out via email and scheduled a virtual interview.
    I signed on to the virtual interview early, waited 15 minutes for them to join, and they never showed up. I double checked the login information and it was all correct. They plainly stood me up. Two days later I received an apology letter from them, which was a plus, and then about 5 minutes later an autogenerated email letting me know that my application was rejected.
    The process was disorganized and disappointing. I hope they're able to coach their interviewers and update their recruiting platforms.
