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.”

    Digital Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, KS
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Cox Automotive (Kansas City, KS) in April 2018.


    Didn’t interview for job I applied for. Applied for specialist job, and recruiter suggested to interview for strategist role instead due to my prior experience. Average 2 person panel interview. I had a ton of questions and they answered each well. They were very informative on what to expect in the job. I got an offer and accepted. The job sounds a lot different than the job description and they said the role was changing. Sounds very phone based. I’ve been a freelancer for several years so my issue is with the third party vendor they use for employment verification. I’ve done all the leg work for the company. I’ve sent in several documents that could have saved me the time if they would actually do their job and call references, instead they immediately ask for W2s to prove past employment. If you’re a freelancer, you don’t get those. It’s been a stressful process gathering documents going back 5 years. What happened to calling a few references, criminal background, and drug test? No, this company goes back 5 years of employment and expects you to do the work for them. We’re applying for a marketing job, not FBI clearance or a car loan.
