    Intern Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Tempe, AZ) in January 2018.

    Interview

    About an hour, interviewers were very down to earth. Showed you around the office and then asked the typical experience questions such about data types, loops and functions. A little white board work but nothing too complicated.

    Internal Audit Interview

    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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Tempe, AZ) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through a staffing agency. Was reached out to by Internal Audit Manager. Had a 30-45 minute phone interview. Came in for an in-person interview. There they have all the internal audit department come in and ask you questions and answer any questions you have. Came back in for another in-person interview where they have people from other departments ask you questions. A lot of the questions are typical interview questions. The main things they look for is, do they like your personality, can you hold a conversation and do you have good critical thinking skills so make sure you show those off. All the interviews were super casual and laidback.

    IT Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phoenix, AZ

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Phoenix, AZ) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Was contacted late Thur afternoon by an internal recruiter that I had a hard time understanding because of accent. Set up a phone screen for Friday afternoon with the VP of IT and their most senior admin/engineer. Call when well was asked to come in for in-person the following Monday. Was scheduled for a 2 hour meeting. got on site, talked with the VP for about 5 min, he was dressed in cargo shorts and a polo top. 2 senior admins came in and we talked for 50 minutes or so about all the different things they were doing, basically the position was "everything, and other duties as assigned". The network admin position is just a generic title as you'll be doing networking, windows/nix, virtualization, san, exchange, etc. They said they create a lot of side businesses to get every penny out of the sale of a car, so you have to always be ready to connect domains and spin up entire sites over the weekend. Those 2 left and had a 10min wait for 2 more lower level admins to come in and talk. talked with them for about 45min, both of them agreed that their input had 0% relevance to my being hired and didn't understand why they were there. That lasted for 45 min, they left and VP came back in. Said he would be in touch early the following week. Time for follow-up came and went, I sent and email asked for an update, about 1 and a half weeks later I heard back with standard turn down letter.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group in October 2014.

    Interview

    Very lax and I think their decision was made right when I walked in. 2 person interview and one always seemed distracted looking out the window waving to coworkers. I felt discouraged from the get go since the other interviewer gave the feel that they weren't interested in what I was saying

    Underwriter Interview

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

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at DriveTime Automotive Group (Mesa, AZ).

    Interview

    I received a phone call 2-3 days after initially applying from a recruiter. Went in same day for an in person interview with the recruiter than was able to schedule an in person with DriveTime hiring managers a couple hours later. Went in and initially had an oral board interview followed by a one-on-one with two hiring managers. Standard personality, work history, strength/weakness questions.

    I had been called in for the Underwriter position but the position they kept describing was collections. I brought this point up saying that I had applied to the underwriter position and I was told that collections was underwriting. I decided to keep going on with the interview to see where it went and they ended up making me an offer.

    After declining the offer due to low pay, mediocre benefits that wouldn't kick in for 90 days and most importantly false advertising in regards to the job itself, I received a follow up email from the original recruiter. She asked if I would be interested in future openings in underwriting at DriveTime. I asked if they would be actual underwriting positions or how they would be different from the "underwriting" position that I had applied to and I never heard back from her.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because the actual job did not match the job description in the original job posting. Underwriting is not collections. Also the pay was lower than current job and benefits would not kick in for 90 days.
