    Store Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at AutoZone (Olathe, KS) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Initially a phone screen. Then a one on one with a store manager. Second interview with the District Manager and last interview with a panel of five regional managers from each department including, sales, human resources, loss prevention, customer service and administration. In my interview the store manager identified that I had skills appropriate for managing a store and referred me to the district manager even though that meant I could not work at her store. She clearly had the interests of the company ahead of her personal interest. Good to see.

    District Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at AutoZone (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Panel style interview with regional manager, HR manager, AP manager, and a potential peer DM. I traveled in 9 hours for the interview which started 10 minutes late. A small introduction period, then led to the panels questioning. The lack of professionalism by the RM was almost comical, left the room 3x to take calls, then when did feel he wanted to participate, he was condescending and jumped all over the interview panel. Definitely seemed like he treated his support staff like dirt. The AP manager was on another planet, he just texted through the whole thing. The questions were your typical situational leadership, looking for specific step by step answers. The promise of follow up within 2-3 days came and went. Still not even a courtesy call to say they passed,which personally I always made sure to do... But I cannot say I'm shocked. I wouldn't pursue even if they were interested...

    Sales Associate Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at AutoZone (Lake Forest, CA).

    Interview

    Easy and very casual. Went over basic retail questions. Very little emphasis on actual auto parts questions and knowledge of cars. Overall interview was rather short. Interview took place behind the counter and other employees were able to listen in. Not very professional at all but then again it was applying for a retail sales position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at AutoZone (Memphis, TN).

    Interview

    The interview process for me wasn't a hard one mainly because I was a repeat customer and had shown my knowledge of cars by dealing with my own vehicle over the years. I basically walked in and ask if they were hiring after I applied online and I was interviewed on the spot. The manager at the time asked me basic car knowledge questions and team work questions. After the interview I received a call the next day with the job offer.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at AutoZone in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and within a couple of days I got a call for an interview as an autozoner at the Fort Worth Ave location (75211). The initial interview was very casual. I was only looking for a part time job so it was not like I needed the job, it was more supplemental income. I went in confident, not nervous whatsoever. I was asked to talk about myself. Basically went over my work history. If you have previous sales experience, mechanic experience, or customer service experience it is definitely a plus.
