    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sewell Automotive.

    Interview

    The first interview was with one person. More of a conversation than an interview. After that I was asked to take an aptitude test. Not too hard but it required thinking. After the aptitude test, I was invited to fly to Dallas where I interviewed with 12 or so employees, where most of the interviews went extremely well and were more of conversations. It took them 3 weeks to get back to me after that where I got a letter saying I was not selected, which was surprising to me considering how well my interviews went. Not exactly sure what they are looking for because I felt I fit the mold perfectly.

    Interview Questions

    • Most questions were just casual conversation. Only one of my interviewers followed a structured interview. Most of the questions just involved talking about myself. Having a personal mentor is a big thing for them.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Sewell Automotive in March 2014.

    Interview

    Applied through a career fair, with everyone getting an interview that signs up for one you really need to find a way to stick out. Personally for me I convinced them how hard working I was and I was defined by growing up in a single parent household and, that I was a first generation college student however they're looking for specific qualities they think fit the mold. It's hard to tell because I haven't started the internship yet. All I can say is they don't care what GPA you have, what exactly you did before. I'm a sophomore and it was very competitive but they believed in me. I was called and congratulated and I thanked the recruiter who heavily pushed for my offer and he said "I helped you get on the floor, but you have to do the dance" I can't wait for this experience to start.

    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Sewell Automotive (Houston, TX) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The interview was a three step process that started with a basic 15 minute interview with 2 of the managers to see if you had the right personality for the business. The second part was a written personality test/math test. The math was extremely easy and was just trying to gauge your real world math skills. If you passed the second test, Sewell would invite you to an on site interview at one of the stores. There you had a series of 5 interviews with 5 different managers. They also treated me to lunch which was delicious! after that they said I would receive a decision in the coming two weeks. The whole process took around 2-3 months from first contact at the university. It was probably one of the most impressive interviewing processes I have ever done.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sewell Automotive (Houston, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I had a brief phone interview consisting of basic questions about my work and leadership experience. I was then asked to come in for an interview with the recruiting manager. The questions were very similar to the phone interview with a few difficult ones thrown in such as, "Describe a time you received luxurious service and what made it feel that way.". I wasn't expecting it, so I didn't have a good example prepared and had to kind of wing it. I got a phone call about a week later saying they had chosen someone with more relevant experience.

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Sewell Automotive (Sugar Land, TX) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Not much information about what was to be expected. Questions weren't related to the position. You really should come prepared. Definitely recommend studying up on math before scheduling interview since you will be required to take and pass exam during interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Sewell Automotive (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Sewell came and talked to my marketing class at A&M and was also at the business career fair the next week. First you talk to them at the career fair and if they like you, you'll be invited out to their formal mandatory informational at the Hilton. You can then sign up for interviews with them. These take place the next day and are with a couple of their managers or higher up people. All of them were very easy to talk to and it almost felt casual. After the interview they have you take a personality test and if they think you match what they're looking for they will have you come out the next week to take an aptitude test. About a week after that I got a call asking me to come meet with the managers of a couple of dealerships in DFW for interviews. Was at each dealership for about 3 hours. Everyone was extremely friendly and I feel like I met almost everyone who worked at the stores. After that it took about a week to hear back. Overall it was a great experience. Being a junior in college I hadn't had very many formal interviews for 'real' jobs yet and if most are run half as well as Sewell's then I will be extremely pleased. They definitely know what they are doing and it shows.

    Interview Questions

    • I probably interviewed with 7 different people and none of the interviews were really the same. However, during the first round I was asked if I hated losing or loved winning.   1 Answer
