    I have been working at Auto Trader UK full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    During these unprecedented times the people across the business have come together and supported each other, our customers and local charities as well. You can tell a lot about a business culture at times like this and I am so proud of all my colleagues that have managed to adjust to the new ways of working by being creative and caring.
    We got all the right technology to be able to work from home and lots of support so we can look after our wellbeing.
    Teams are finding some nice ways to stay connected while we are away from our offices and really watch out for each other making sure everybody stays well and safe.

    Cons

    Working from home isn't the norm so it took as by surprise but everybody is trying to make the best out of this situation

    Advice to Management

    Continue being visible and accessible during this crisis

    Graduate Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Manchester, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Auto Trader UK (Manchester, England (UK)) in March 2020.

    Interview

    The application is both a challenging and thorough process, but a great opportunity to demonstrate what you can bring to the role at each of the six stages:

    1. Online application and submission of CV.
    2. Online tests.
    3. Telephone interview - lasting around 30 minutes, exploring your motivations for applying to Auto Trader. Also a chance to ask any questions you have about the role or company.
    4. Assessment day - consists of a 1 hour interview, a role play task, a 15 minute presentation, and a group task. We were also given a tour of the office and introduced to the current graduates on the scheme, which was a great opportunity to ask lots of questions about the role. You receive all the information about the day well in advance giving you plenty of time to prepare! A couple of weeks after the day you’ll receive an in-depth feedback phone call from a member of the Resourcing Team.
    5. More tests, including a personality questionnaire.
    6. Final stage is an interview with a member of the Operational Leadership Team - focussing more on you as a person from a values perspective, and your expectations of the role.

    The assessors are all very professional and super friendly, and they made the whole experience really enjoyable! The Resourcing Team are wonderful and keep you well-informed on what to expect at each stage. Overall, the process gives you a brilliant insight into life at Auto Trader.
