    Interview

    Had a first interview, went well, got scheduled for a second with the district manager on a Thursday at 4, I got there at 3:45 and went in and he wasn't there, so I left my name and number and called the other autozone to reschedule. We rescheduled the following Thursday at 3:15 (earlier in hopes he would be there) Thursday came up, drove all the way out there again, and he wasn't there.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at AutoZone.

    Interview

    I interviewed with Brent R. He was professional and friendly and made the interview process very comfortable. We talked about knowledge for the specific job. We talked about my previous work history and experience. He asked me to relate my experience to how I would fit in at AutoZone. He asked about criminal history and driving records and we discussed using appropriate safety measures and equipment. We also talked about future opportunity within the corporation and the ability to transfer to other geographical areas. The only thing I left not knowing about was the pay scale. We will see if and when I am contacted.

    Interview

    Very technical. Be sure to talk sports. Many interviews including panel and one on one. very picky.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source – interviewed at AutoZone (Spring Valley, CA) in September 2014.

    Interview

    Was called to attend an interview for a Saturday morning. When I received the call, woman on phone said if I was still interested, and if I wanted to come in for an interview, she instructed me to come in anytime after 9am. I was not given a store address or a specific time, so I ended up having to call a couple Spring Valley locations in San Diego to find out the location. I called ahead of time to see if 11am was an ok time. Manager on the phone confirmed that this was ok. When I arrived, there was another woman ahead of me which was ok, as I did not mind waiting. I was told to wait patiently and the manager would be with me in a brief moment. I waited for about and hour before leaving without the interview. Very unprofessional, bad experience. Not worth it.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at AutoZone in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was called for a job interview on March 7th. I got there about 10 mins before the interview. After notifying one of the associates I was here, she went to tell the manager. I ended up waiting an extra 30 mins before even meeting the guy. We went into the back room and sat by the bathroom. He seemed extremely uninterested, and did not say anything about the job. He basically rambled on about what autozone is. Needless to say, I didn't get the job, or a call back. Called back 2 weeks later and he said they haven't found the hours yet.

    Interview

    I was taken into the backroom after waiting for what seemed like 20 minutes. Very informal relaxed manager interview style. Asked about parts of the store that I was familiar with. I was told about the uniform of the store and the most likely store hours that I may work if hired.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at AutoZone.

    Interview

    The active part of the process took about 4 weeks. Everyone I spoke with was dedicated and pleasant. My only real concern with the process is that it seems that the normal method if you're not going to receive an offer is to just stop communicating with candidates. While candidates would like to win the job, it's better to tell people if they do not get the job. Just leaving people hanging isn't very professional and is inconsiderate. I actually enjoyed and had fun with the interviews but the leaving you hanging part eats up the goodwill toward the company.

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at AutoZone (Mayfield Heights, OH) in March 2012.

    Interview

    The store manager called and said he read my application online and would like me to come in for an interview the next day. He asked me what would be a good time and I replied whatever works best for you. He said he would be busy in the morning but 2:00 PM would be good. I arrived at 1:45 the next day. The crew members all asked me if I needed assistance. This was a positive sign of a well trained tem. I replied that I was here for an interview. They said they would let the manager know I was there. I took the 15 minutes to browse the store and aquint myself with the merchandise and pricing. The displays were well organized and neatly displayed. I browsed the entire store and read the latest sale flyer while waiting for my interview. The manager approached me and said he was ready. We went to the back of the store behind the displays as he said the office was too small for an interview. We went over all the usal things I would expect. What was my reason for applying? Did I have the skills necessary for the job? He explained that the company policy was to do whatever it takes to keep the customer loyal to this company. Even if that meant taking a loss or giving merchandise away to settle a complaint. Having been recently employed by one of his direct competitors I knew exactly what he was talking about and voiced my agreement. We both agreed that all the companies in our industry sell the same products and it is the customer service that makes the difference.
    The interview continued along these lines with him explaining what the company expected and I agreeing and saying how that was pretty much what the other company I had worked for expected as well. Overall the interview went very well I thought. I felt I had what he was looking for and I could join his team and do an excellent job. After about 40 minutes we finished up and I left feeling very good about it. I am surprised that was 2 weeks ago and I have not heard anything back from him. I will follow up tommorrow and see if he has filed that position.
