    I have been working at AutoNation full-time (Less than a year)


    I love what AutoNation represents; we’re not just about selling cars. We’re about making a difference in the community through auto sales. AutoNation has raised over $12 million dollars to fund research to help find a cure for cancer. We are also the largest auto retailer in the US, and we’re the first to sell over 11 million vehicles. This is a company that values its clients and its associates. Our mission is to “deliver a peerless customer experience” and our vision is to “be America’s best place to buy and service cars and trucks.” In order to do that, we go to great lengths to retain our most valued asset: our employees. We do not overlook outstanding performance and we take every opportunity to promote from within.


    Can not think of anything at this time!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!

    HRBP Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at AutoNation (New York, NY).


    Phone interview with Recruiter, 2nd phone interview with Director, 3rd interview with Market Director. HR Director gave me wrong date for the onsite interview so I had to come back again. After the interviews I was told they would have a decision in a week. Never heard back. I sent two follow up emails to the Director and got no response. Finally emailed the recruiter and he gave me the final decision. The recruiter was great but he was not in charge of managing the candidate experience. The director ran the candidate experience for this role and was terrible.
