Sales Interview

Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at CarMax (Raleigh, NC).

Interview

You speak with a couple people, they will take anyone as people leave so quickly due to how they are treated. They tell you that only a few make the cut for working at CarMax. Everything with them is a sham.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at CarMax (Phoenix, AZ) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, completed online personality test which is required to submit your application and takes over an hour, yet there's no information on this when you begin applying. When you're finished it doesn't tell you whether you passed or not. Apparently I did as I got a call from a manager a couple of days later and went through a 20-min phone assessment. "I'd like to get some info about you and after I do you'll have a chance to ask questions." This whole thing would be unnecessary if they disclosed salary at the start. $12/hour OR commission, whichever is greater ... I DIDN'T NEED TO TAKE AN HOUR LONG TEST AND A PHONE INTERROGATION TO BE NOT INTERESTED! But thanks for participating.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at CarMax (Duarte, CA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    The process seems to be very involved starting with a long online application, followed by a group meeting to meet Managers from several different departments within the company. Then this is followed by a tour of the facility, all the while the group is being told what a great place Carmax is to work. The tour is followed by a computer questionnaire about how honest you are. After the honesty probe there is a one on one interview. Following the one on one I was invited back for a role play that I haven't completed. After I complete the role play I will update my review.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at CarMax (Salt Lake City, UT) in August 2011.

    Interview

    it was a lengthy interview. Pretty easy. You just had to have people skills. They start you with a sales manager and you end with the GM of the store. Many people said it was hard, but I didn't think it was too bad.
