Hello RR members,

I am a recent college grad with about 4 months of automotive service/sales experience and several years of customer service experience. I recently interviewed with a branch manager at ML who I was referred to through family. After interviewing he send me an email telling me that I needed to confirm a time to go to the head regional office and meet with some of the trainee coaches as well as take the FIAT test which I have read a bit about.

My questions are as follows: is this the typical method that ML uses to recruit and if so is the hiring decision primarily in the hands of the BM or the trainee coaches who I will meet with later this week? Also if there is any information that you would care to share that would better help me prepare or know what to expect from I would greatly appreciate it.

I am extremely enthusiastic about being successful in this career and believe I have a good idea of what to expect and the kind of hard work I will need to put in. Though I base this off of only 4-5 weeks of research and meeting with two advisors which I know personally, rather than from experience.

Thank you for reading and any tips or information regarding my upcoming interview / testing would be much appreaciated, or any insight from current ML advisors!
