One manager and you in a small room.. might be 10-15 mins tops. It’s very informal. And usually know on the spot. In some cases you’ll even meet everyone in the dealership.
- Tell me about a time when you faced challenges at a job. How familiar are you with computer programs and office equipment?

I interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Tempe, AZ)
The interview was scheduled shortly after submitting the application, and was done through a preliminary phone screen with a recruiter. One was sent onto the next round after that to meet with real analysts in a technical round.
- Why Data Analytics? What made you specifically choose drivetime?

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Houston, TX
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Houston, TX) in Aug 2023
The guy from AZ who called me was aggressive and right away I didn’t want to continue the conversation this was for the Houston location. He took a call during our interview. Unprofessional. Then I received a text and call from him asking me to call him. I was reluctant because I didn’t want to work there. He called to tell me they hired someone. I was not even interested. Bad experience!

Extensive interview that ultimately was a huge waste of time. Had two zoom call interviews with the hiring manager and a colleague. On the second zoom call I had to do a "case study" which was really intense, not because the questions were that difficult, but because it's high pressure and you get a deer in the headlights effect. Honestly I think this is a really dumb screening tool but that's what they have. The case study is usually an Excel type of problem. They give you two scenarios and the answer is that you calculate the results for the total population (all 100,000 cars or whatever example) for the two different scenarios and compare the results (ex Process A has a 5% success rate and makes a profit of $100 per car. Process B has a 10% success rate and makes $70 per car. Tell us which one to do). Other than that, surprisingly they didn't ask me any technical questions at all. It was just problem solving questions. They want you to give lots of examples of your work projects at current and former jobs in which you did the exact thing that you'd be doing at this job, and where you were proactive and improved the business by X%. So just make up some examples and you can even say you did it with Python because they will not verify and probably none of the interviewers know Python themselves. The third interview is onsite. It is four back-to-back interviews for a total of about 2 hours. Then after that you'll probably here back in a week or so. Good luck!

The woman was extremely agressive hopefully not in sales, not relaxed. She was extremely loud/forward and honestly it freaked me out about their training process. They need a phone coach or something

Interview was just a formality because they changed the job from a Software Engineer to a "Mendix Developer" which they required experience with a low code platform. Which is a low code platform just like system engineering (case) tools from the 70s or Java beans from diagram code generator from the 90s. Honestly wouldn't recommend as the code base will eventually have tons of edge cases requiring real code and creating a fragile mess that was half diagram and half code. Best of luck to whomever takes that job.
- Do you have experience coding using Mendix?

There are only two processes since I went through a staffing agency. I think that's the easier way to get in the company but the traditional way isn't impossible too. Also they're always doing referral
