How to Get Hired
We asked DriveShop for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
The ideal candidate is thorough, detail-oriented and thrives on problem solving. Holding a commitment to quality, accuracy, consistency and transparency is essential. They are a team player with strong communication skills and a hands-on, roll-up-your-sleeves work ethic who can have fun along the way.
In our interviews, we ask “who is the best person you've worked for and why?” Being able to recognize the effort of someone else in their career to make them better demonstrates humility, which is crucial.
We look for innovative, interesting and hardworking employees. Our company culture is very important to the success of DriveShop therefore candidates with unique perspectives, inspiring ideas and a passion for cars is always a plus! This helps foster a workplace that is continuously innovative and diverse.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Our company is continuing to grow at a rapid pace and will likely be expanding all departments and continue to look for instrumental employees who can keep up. Project Managers and Coordinators are currently a top priority.
