    Internet Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mesa, AZ
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Mesa, AZ).

    Interview

    The first guy asked me a few basic questions then wanted me to ask questions. I interviewed him more than he interviewed me. After that I sat with an agent for maybe 15 minutes listening to his calls. After that a completely different manager came and got me, we sat down and he asked if I had any questions. That was it the 2nd manager had nothing to say. I turned this job down it looked horrible and the commission was a joke.

    3 interviews! 1st two went well, 3rd one was horrible. The Area Director called me and did the interview on speaker phone, I had a hard time understanding him. After my interview, I was told all applicants would hear back in 24-48 hours. Never heard back, so I called and was told they went with another applicant.

    Internal Audit Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Tempe, AZ) in March 2017.

    Interview

    After scheduling my interview with the recruiter, I arrived to my interview 15 minutes early. I checked in with receptionist and sat in the waiting area for 40 minutes. The girl who finally came and got me said she had to send some emails and apologized for being late, although I saw her talking with her coworkers for a good 15 minutes. As I toured the office, no one was dressed professionally. People were dressed in work out attire and casual attire. I was led to a random round table in the office where I was being interviewed by 4 employees. The interview was probably the worst 45 minutes of my life. These people were disrespectful and were more focused on going to there company outing than interviewing me. One of my interviewers asked why I thought I was qualified to be their intern if I had no experience in internal audit or with their company. The same interviewer also was disrespectful and made fun of some of my answers. After the interview, I was so excited to leave their office. I knew before leaving that this was not a company I would ever want to work for and that I would not get an offer. Safe to say, DriveTime was the worst company I have ever interviewed with.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Tucson, AZ) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Very brief and concrete set of questions. Very unprofessional. I ended up being interviewed by another staff member, after waiting for almost 20 minutes. I lost interest in wanting to get a job offer from them.

    Logistics Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mesa, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Mesa, AZ) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Initially I spoke with a recruiter multiple times before I took some time to schedule an interview. Prior to the interview, the recruiter asked me research the company and that's when I really found out what this company does. Buying used cars, marking them up by 40%, and financing them at rates as high as 29% just seemed unappealing to me. However, I never turn down an interview, fully employed or not. In the interview I made a point to try to get the three employees interviewing me talking. One of them joked about failing cars, selling them at auction, then repurchasing them at auction, passing them, and selling them to customers in good condition. I just pretended that it didn't bother me that they found this funny. Later I asked them if prospective employees should be concerned with the fact that the owner of the company is a felon, as they would probably be expected to pass a background check. They just told me that the owner owned other companies too. Not completely unexpectedly, I was sent an email two days later that I was not being offered a position with DriveTime. I, however, will live as there are some things I will not do for money.

The interview was very easy no hard questions at all he just wanted to know about experience and he seemed really passionate about who he wanted to hire which was cool with me. After the interview he said I should hear back in about a week after drug testing background check and DMV check. No call back yet.
