    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at KAR Auction Services (Carmel, IN) in December 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and then was contacted a few weeks later to set up an initial phone interview. After that, an onsite interview with a series of different managers, all typical behavioral questions. After another week or two, another phone interview was scheduled, this time with executives in the department. These questions were also very straight forward. Final offer was made about 2 weeks after final phone interview. Overall a very easy experience.

    Salesforce Strategy & Architecture Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at KAR Auction Services (Indianapolis, IN) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Talked to the recruiter from Mason Frank on phone. Met KAR hiring manager in person in Chicago. Was then asked to go over to Indianapolis to meet with other leadership in person. Hiring manager was from Strategy and one of the interviewees was CIO - they were not aligned on role expectations and where it sits in the organization. Mason Frank recruiter was inexperienced with filling for higher level roles. KAR booked hotel but ignored paying for mileage expense. Overall not a good experience, chaotic & unorganized is understandable in a dynamic environment but they came across as unfair & unprofessional.

    IT Director Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at KAR Auction Services (Carmel, IN) in December 2015.

    Interview

    As an internal applicant I did not have any informal sessions prior to the formal interview, nor were there any pre-screening sessions with HR. The format was a multi-person interview kicked off with a 30 minute presentation to the Senior Leadership Panel, and 30-45 minute individual sessions with other SLT members. Standard questions with a focus on leadership, customer and relationship management, strategy, people development and coaching. Highly NON-technical, focus was on People and Process. There was very little focus on the specifics of the particular job, rather the focus was on performance as a member of the senior leadership team and as a coach and developer of people in general
