Retail Parts Pro Interview

Retail Parts Pro

The process took a day - interviewed at Advance Auto Parts in July 2011.

Interview Details – No real questions, and no skill surveys. Not even asked about my experience. Nothing was mentioned about salary and the employer did all the speaking during the interview process. I was not told, for instance that I would be getting less than twenty hours a week, and that the pay range did not exceed minimum wage by very much.

Interview Question – No questions were asked.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no negotiations, I was told that in a nutshell, I had to accept the offer as-is, or I would not be considered at all. The interviewer seemed bored with the process and dis-interested in anything I had to say.
