    Interview

    Had a recruiter reach out to me via indeed and tell me my resume was awesome asked me to come in for an interview. Came in and talked to recruiter, recruiter liked me and said he always likes to have his director met everyone so I met him and for some reason the director didn't like me even though I nailed the interview and was over qualified. I could tell the recruiter was very disappointed when he came back to tell me "we will let you know Monday with results"

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Mishawaka, IN) in May 2017.

    Interview

    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.

    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.

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.

    Internal Audit Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tempe, AZ

    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.

    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.

    Customer Sales Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Mesa, AZ) in December 2016.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me via email and expressed interested. We had a fantastic phone interview, and I scheduled a sit down interview the same week. I arrived to the location right on time, and waited 15 minutes for the manager of the department to come out. He seemed nice enough, gave me a brief tour of the facility then we interviewed. We discussed some prior employment, and some standard things such as what I enjoy doing in my free time. He seemed arrogant, but the interview went fine and we connected on a few things. Then I sat with a sales specialist, and listened to a few of his calls, which I felt I could've handled better. After that two other managers came and lead me to a conference room for another round of questioning. They had great questions pertaining to past employer, and I felt it went well. They seemed receptive, and told me they'd be in touch, which was over a month ago with no response. I even reached out to the recruiter and got no response. I feel I was qualified for this position and would've been a real asset to this company. But after taking time out of my day, and driving over 40 miles round trip, I feel this company lacks professionalism to not even email a letter of rejection if they weren't interested.

    General Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Antonio, TX

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (San Antonio, TX) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Corporate recruiter was very professional. I had a phone interview followed by a Skype interview. My third interview was with a Director who belittled me, tossed my resume in air and was looking off into space. Avoid this company at all costs!! In my 22 year career I had never ever experienced anything like this. I kept thinking it was a joke. My advice clean up your credit and do business at a real car dealership. The lit was filthy, cars dirty and the one car I had inquired to see was a Mercedes out on demo with the Manager. This gentleman was the poorest representation of your company possible. Remember a potential candidate can lead to potential customers. Never ever would I recommend this company to anyone seeking a job opportunity.

    Interview Questions

    • Recruiter asked standard behavioral questions. So called Director threw my resume up in air and said I'm going to let you talk. I don't ask questions. It was 4:00pm on a Friday. Either he was in a hurry to get to dinner or he is seriously a miserable human being.   Answer Question
