    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CarMax.

    Interview

    I originally met with a recruiter in-person at a career fair and applied online shortly afterwards. The recruiter set me up with an interview just to discuss the company and get to know me. Then I had an additional phonecall interview with a technology manager with some low-level tech and behavioral questions. I was then invited to an on-campus interview where I had a technical interview and behavioral interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CarMax (Richmond, VA) in March 2020.

    Interview

    Had to take two assessments beforehand, met with recruiter, then a case interview with a member of the hiring team. Assessments were long and tedious, the interpretation/visualization one was difficult, math was timed and it's designed for you to not be able to finish. Recruiter was a basic interview/screen. Case (details included below) was rather difficult if you haven't done that type of math in years.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CarMax.

    Interview

    I applied and did not hear back for several months. The process began pretty basic with an initial phone screening to review cover letters and qualifications. I was contacted and scheduled an interview. When I arrived for the interview I contacted the manager assistant and I interviewed with two buyers. I then had another interview with a senior manager and the original two. After the interviews, I was asked to take a skills test on a computer with everything from math questions, scheduling abilities, and word comprehension. I was also asked to take a urine test at some point, either after or before the computer test. Overall, this process took about 5 hours.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at CarMax (Phoenix, AZ) in February 2020.

    Interview

    Hard online test with only 25 minutes. They had various questions about pricing and currency rates. Was not a fan of this because the software seemed out of date and the case study pictures very small and hard to read. Had to guess on a couple questions at the end. These are set up to trick you.
