I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Advance Auto Parts.

Interview Details – I was hired only because my ability to speak Spanish fluently. I think that my experience and education were not taken into account. Everything is managed in a rush. There is no time to ask how much are you going to receive hourly or monthly, Not even what are going to be your schedule.

Interview Question – They need me because they did not have enough people to fill the vacancies or maybe because people do no last longer there.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation at all.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Advance Auto Parts in June 2011.

Interview Details – I received a call at about 1:30pm and was asked to come in for an interview (today or never). I arrived at the interview five minutes early and ended up waiting twenty minutes until I was brought to a table in the back of the store. It was an "easy interview" as he seemed impressed by everything I said, though I wouldn't consider myself THAT impressive. He told me people always move up in the company and he could tell I was "management material". I was offered a job pending the results of my drug test that I had to take the next day.

Interview Question – Do you think you could be happy with a part-time position even though you are obviously management material?   View Answer

Sales Person Interview

Sales Person

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Advance Auto Parts in May 2009.

Interview Details – It didn't take long...I applied, interviewed, and after taking a short skills exam to prove I had some knowledge about auto mechanics I was hired later that week. The overall interview was fairly easy however pay isn't too exciting but I needed a job. It turne out to be quite rewarding because I know more about cars and parts than some men do!! Kudos to Advance Auto!!!

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – There really wasn't one because this was my first job in this industry and they have a set minimum for what the "average" newbie to auto mechanics starts out with.
