    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Copart.

    Interview

    Fairly easy process. I went to a job fair where we learned about the company and did an interview. Around 2 weeks later i received a call asking for more information, once i completed the information I received a offer letter. I had to complete background information which took a week to get hired. On the first day there is a mouth swab drug test which if you know anything about mouth swabs theyre very simple.

    Interview

    Some interviews are good. What is wierd is expect marketing to interview you as an engineer. a joke.
    There was no one available with my expertise to even interview me. So I saw a marketing person, and business analyst, and bugs bunny

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Copart (Sikeston, MO) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Went thru face to face interview and then proceeded to phone interview with HR. Never heard a word back from Regional Manager on anything. Interview process was very good but was very disappointed in the company not getting back with me on my application. That is not how you should do business.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Copart.

    Interview

    It was a promotion. My RM backed me pretty well. Meeting with VP of region was simple and short. There was also an unnecessary meeting with RM of HR. It is unnecessary as the HR knows little to nothing about operations. Meeting with HR was based on operational questions instead of proper business ethics.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Copart (Greer, SC) in April 2010.

    Interview

    The process was thorough but time consuming. Time and travel expense invested for a delayed outcome. All personal encounters were pleasant. Culture and people came across as dedicated and friendly. Would suggest expediting the process where possible.

    • Second online assessment was more job skills based. Financials, problem resolution, customer resolution.   2 Answers

    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Copart (San Antonio, TX) in November 2013.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online on 11/4/2013 and was contacted by for a phone interview a week later. My interview with Mr. Lawton went great and after several assesment online and several visits to the yard I was finally going to meet him in person and I couldn't have been more exited at the time. This was a great opportunity for my career and I was so hungry to succeed and make a difference that I prepared as much as I could to make sure I would exceed his expectations. I arrived at the yard and had to wait a couple of minutes but I didn't mind until he walked out of the office, screened me and walked back inside w/o even saying hello. I remember thinking "if this is the RM's customer service I can't even imagine what the hourly employees are like" but I pushed trough because I knew this was something I could easily fix at "my" yard. The interview went great and I was already making a mental list of all the ways I was going to take the yard to the next level but something he said at the end threw me off. He said that I "smiled too much and he didn't know if I was a fit for the office". The next step was supposedly to have a phone interview with the VP but after going through all that I never heard from anyone at COPART again. Not an email, call or text message, I even send several emails to the RM because I wanted to be sure that the position had been filled before I moved on but I never heard back from anyone. It was very disrespectful and I wouldn't wish it on anyone. REALLY?? because I smiled? I was always taught that in customer service you smile to make people feel comfortable with you and you keep smiling when the going gets tough until you have no option but to stop. I do not believe in being rude and intimidating, I don't get respect that way. I earn respect by being considerate to my peers and customers, being knowledgeable in the business and making the tough calls when is necessary. Your loss.
