    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Group 1 Automotive (United States) in Nov 2021

    Interview

    Group 1 automotive gave a very good interview. Straight forward, and I was on boarded promptly. The interview involved the manager of the center and the general manager. They were both friendly and polite. They gave me a run down of what’s expected for the position and were honest about what they needed in entirety.
    Interview

    Why I left my previous employer. How I am qualified for this position.
