    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AutoNation.

    Interview

    45 minute phone interview was difficult with very specific questions concerning very specific technologies. Answered very technical questions early on for 30 minutes of questions being fired by two architects. Thought I was doing fairly well when at the end of the interview I did not possess experience with one of the specific javascript libraries they were looking for.

    SERVICE ADVISOR Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at AutoNation in January 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, got a call a day or so later to schedule an interview. Interview was a few days later. It was a typical interview, until I was asked illegal and inappropriate questions. And the job description was changed to something completely different than what I had applied for.
    A few days after the interview I received a phone call asking when I could start. No information on salary, or the position itself (remember it changed during the interview), the hours (they are open longer hours and Saturdays, not a 9-5 job). After asking for that information, and informed that the salary would not be sufficient, she asked what would be, I gave her a number, she said she would see what they could do and she would get back to me. I called her back a few hours later to thank her for the opportunity, but I needed to let her know it was not going to work out. I was inundated the next few days with phone calls and emails informing me I needed to schedule drug testing. Apparently, they just assumed I would accept the position.
