    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CarMax.

    Interview

    They recruit Sales Managers and various Retail Managers to become sales consultants. Just smoke and mirrors. Nobody is hired as a Sales Manager. Regardless of experience. Just do some hoework at the location and ask around.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at CarMax (Ontario, CA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Panel Interview called MAP which was extremely grueling to prepare for over the course of many months. Current interview to promote from Sales Consultant to Sales Manager no longer requires this panel interview but instead consists of a series of in-store demonstrations that are created for you to prove yourself as a manager by exhibiting competencies expected of a sales manager

    Interview

    Very very lengthy, phone interview went super well, in person interview very different. Recruiter brought me in saying they were opening a location within 50 minutes of my home, had to drive 2.5 hrs interviewing for a position at that location. Very odd huge waste of time

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at CarMax.

    Interview

    Interview is pretty thorough. Quick process for being as thorough as it is. Overall there was a phone interview, face to face with two general managers, then face to face with regional Vice President. In between , there were multiple hour long assessments testing math skills and personality.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CarMax (Houston, TX) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Basic interview process. Standard questions.

    Then a strong online assessment. Must have a strong business acumen and customer focus minded to answer the questions correctly.

    They got back to me fairly quickly after the initial application. Phone screening, interview with the LGM then another with the district SM.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain a time when you had to improve the performance of an individual or a group. How did you do this. What was the result?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Was able to negotiate a sign on bonus. It wasn't easy though. They held firm on the base salary.

    Sales Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at CarMax in February 2014.

    Interview

    It took about 3 to 4 weeks for the process. A former boss recommended me for the position. My name was forwarded and the process was on from there. Carmax really grills the folks they want to on-board. If it's not logic testing it's behavioral based questioning. I appreciate that they take their time through the interview process. Makes me feel like I'm going to work for a competent employer. I went through 4 interviews! So if you don't like interviews and get all types of nervous talking to a potential boss and/or colleagues, this is not the job for you! Overall I enjoyed the process, from the recruiters down to the employees! Job well done!
