Matthew Zerkus created and designed a preferred supplier scorecard to track contract service-level agreements for our suppliers.

“I had a great hands-on experience and networking opportunities. During my internship, I gained valuable project management knowledge by doing meaningful work to drive results for the company. My advice for incoming interns, is to come in with an open mind, don’t be afraid to ask questions and get your name out there! You wouldn’t have considered this internship if you didn’t see yourself at this company somewhere down the road!”


Briana Daugherty created content and worked on communication projects for digital channels at Cox Automotive.

“I had a great manager who encouraged me to step outside of my department to meet other people and learn as much as possible about the company. It was great to be encouraged to grow, and leadership was very available for either shadowing or meeting up for coffee. Being able to learn from leaders really gave me insights I wouldn’t have made otherwise.”

    Average Interview


    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cox Automotive.


    I had interviewed for a position with Cox Automotive. The process consisted of a quick phone screen with the recruiter. I then had two phone interviews with the hiring manager and a team member. After that, I was invited onsite to meet with some more team members. This was fine. Then things went awry - I had another onsite scheduled. A coordinator called me to say that someone was not available. She pushed out the onsite a few weeks (!). That is strike 1. The day before the second onsite, she emailed me and called me - the person I was supposed to meet with was taken off the meeting. It had turned into a skype interview instead of an onsite. During the interview, I got a frantic call from the coordinator asking why I hadn't shown up in person (strike 2). After all the phone calls, all the rounds of hoops, etc, I never heard back from the recruiter. I had to follow up a few times to finally get a response. After investing so much time in the interview process, I would expect some sort of rejection.
