Advice to Management
Be understanding of your individual sales person's style of sales, the company may provide the methods to sell but ultimately it is the consultant that is the key factor.
I applied online. I interviewed at CarMax (Puyallup, WA) in April 2017.
Applied online which took about an hour, includes a personality quiz. The next day I received a call from the office requesting to set up an interview. Called back and was offered an interview within the next two days. Interview started 15 minutes late due to MOD being busy.
