I worked at AutoAnything full-time (More than a year)
Great management, awesome work life balance, food trucks, overtime was available by request. Probably the best company Ive ever worked for.
The pay wasn't that great compared to the cost of living in San Diego. Some months, if you were really able to knock it out of the park, the bonus was nice, but most of the time it was just decent.
Advice to Management
Reconsider the bonus plan payout % to be more favorable.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at AutoAnything (San Diego, CA) in May 2016.
A recruiter called me in the morning and quickly debriefed me on this position which I recently applied for, asking and informing me about the position. He then forwarded my resume and information to the hiring manager who called me that same day for a phone screening interview. She asked me the same information as to what my capabilities are and what the position is - everything went great and I got an appointment to do a second interview with the actual person I'll be working for. Came in for the interview, the guy was late and the hiring manager had to go fetch him for me. He talked mostly about personal interest and he made some of his questions based off from those personal interest which quite frankly caught me off guard. It was pretty much a great process from the recruiter to the hiring manager, they asked the same questions pertaining to the position. Then the last interviewer barely touched the subject of the position and pretty much rolled with the punches and the direction of the questions he was asking me weren't as relative as the other two and it wasn't going good at my end. I think he pursued that path and it did make me feel good it just made me feel uncomfortable when I left the building. The recruiter got back to me today and they said they were not going to go ahead with me in this position. The recruiter asked for a reason and they said I didn't have the "aptitude" for the position. I met every minimum qualification in the job description and I have prior knowledge of cars since the company I work for now is in the automotive industry (which btw, prior knowledge to cars was a preference). So I don't know what they mean when they said I didn't have the aptitude. Good luck future interviewees!
