    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lindenhurst, NY
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Advance Auto Parts in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    It did not feel like an interview. Walked in, asked for GM or hiring manager. The staff there was very nice, they told me to wait because the GM will be back in a short time. I spoke to the GM, the district manager walks in shortly. I answered a few common questions. The next thing I know, I'm taking the test for the position.

    Negotiation Details
    I told them that I did my research about the wage for my position. But because I have a background in automotive and business management I asked for a higher wage. I also mentioned that I am willing to work my way up the scale.
