    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CARFAX.

    Interview

    Ridiculous. Filled with "trick questions"
    You can tell Carfax treats its Field Employees like crap. They fail to mention that they track your every move, then double check it. They rescheduled my interview several times for no good reason then the manager said they were sick and was in such a bad mood. Every question that was asked was a no win question. Hire people that have great relationships with auto dealers and let them soar! But no, they want minions with no brains they can terrorize and "helicopter" over.

    Director Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CARFAX (Centreville, VA) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Two phone interviews and half-day in-person interviews. During the last interview I was asked if I was married, had children, and where I lived (yes, I'm female if you were wondering). If I asked that in an interview I would be fired. Needless to say, I was off my game after that. The recruiter had great communications with me until she was informed I wasn't being called back. I found out I didn't get the job when I saw that she reposted the position on her LinkedIn and it came up in my feed. Inconsiderate since she had invited me to connect with her the week before.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CARFAX (Centreville, VA) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Very brief. Was asked about only 2 questions. A bit in a hurry. And, got the rejection noticfication by email within an hour. I might call at the wrong time. It was a regret that I didn't use other tools to be more prepared.

    Interview

    Was contacted via email in regards to a phone screen. Agreed on a date and time. Once the date and time came I never received a call. I then emailed the recruiter without response, and again the next day without response. Very unprofessional and a great way to waste my time.

    Regional Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Centreville, VA

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at CARFAX (Centreville, VA) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I want to highlight, in all sincerity, how absolutely unprofessional Carfax was following the interview process in hopes it does not happen to another candidate. The process started with a brief phone interview with a recruiter that lead to an online video interview with the hiring manager; the following week I was informed the company wanted to bring me out to the headquarters in Virginia for the final portion of the interview process. The interview day consisted of three separate one hour interviews with different regional directors within Carfax; although it made for a long day, everything went smoothly and all interviewers answered any questions I had. Finishing up about to leave the office that Thursday afternoon, the hiring manager said to me, and I quote, "You'll hear from us Monday at the latest either way."

    A month later and I STILL have had no contact from anyone within the company, even after inquiring about their decision through a few emails and voicemails to the recruiter and hiring manager. After doing a bit of personal research, I found out on my own the employee that left the position (the employee whom I knew and referred me for the position) to take another job elsewhere decided he did not like his new job and wanted his old job back, which Carfax apparently granted to him even though he left. Again, no one within the company or the employee himself took the thirty seconds to inform me of this as I would have been somewhat understanding.

    My point of this interview review is not to simply have a childish rant, but to point out I honestly would never have expected such unprofessional, immature actions from a company such as Carfax. I am still baffled they could not take the short few seconds to send a follow up email stating they were going a different direction. The humorous part of this is all anyone preached all day at the office (almost in robotic like synchronization) was how great the company culture was and that no company has an office atmosphere like Carfax. Apparently I need to be the one to inform Carfax that a great company is built on how they conduct themselves in all facets of the organization, not having an Xbox or ping-pong table and making sure your employees have memorized their lines of how great the company culture is.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at CARFAX (Columbia, MO) in June 2016.

    Interview

    i was interviewed for data analyst and also for software developer.First selected via Hacker Rank and then phone screening, where i received a response that technical panel was impressed.Later they called for in-person interview for two days.The process was smooth, not much technical, some situational questions like 5 term goals.There are 3 to 4 rounds on each day, Pair Programming was part of it,all red and green tests were passed.i felt positive about the interview and thought would be selected.

    But i received the response from the recruiter that they are looking for more experience in scripting.
    It was like waste of my two days.They could have checked properly and called for the interview.
