    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CarMax (Hillside, IL).

    Interview

    Honestly, there were a lot of pointless questions about gaps in work history. Why do you need to know why I wasn´t working between high school and college......10 years ago???? Um, maybe because I was 18 years old and focused on getting into.....COLLEGE. Didn´t really feel like the interview process was personable. Very scripted, in fact, he had a script infront of him as he interviewed me lol

    Business Analyst Rotation Program Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at CarMax.

    Interview

    Submitted an application through my college career center, and through the CarMax website. I was then invited to participate in the online numerical assessment. It was awful. They give you a practice assessment that has no time limit and can be completed at any time, but it is very short. It also had absolutely nothing similar to what was actually on the real assessment. I have no doubt that I unfortunately did not pass.

    I applied online. I interviewed at CarMax.

    Interview

    After submitting my application, I had to complete an online assessment focused on math and logic. Then had an hour long phone interview that included a long case study. The phone interview was somewhat difficult because the vase study prompt is read yo you and you do not have access to a physical copy if the case to read

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call for a phone interview. Passed that and scheduled an interview for the following week if I recall correctly. From that interview I was told I would hear back by Monday. Called Tuesday and I understood since it's tax refund time and was told to come in for the next steps. Was offered the position as soon as I sat down with the Business Office Manager.

    Business Analyst Rotation Program Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CarMax (Richmond, VA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Had to jump through a few dozen hoops, a phone interview, 3 behavioral interviews total, 2 IQ tests and 2 case studies. I got every question right on the case studies and 1 of the IQ tests, all but 1 right on the 2nd one.

    An absolute time waster, I feel like they never had any intention of hiring most of the people they brought in. They keep telling you about how great their company is, how great the program is, and how awesome the employees are, give tours of the site, etc, but clearly don't have intentions of hiring people. I would not recommend giving them your time.

    Oh yeah, and my first interview was delayed because the analyst was late to work.
