Sales Associate Interview

Whittier, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at AutoZone in April 2014.

Interview Details – Had 2 interviews, one with the store's manager and one with the district manager at a different store. I got called within 3 days of submitting my application. Set up both interviews within 5 days. I also had to go to a training class the next week at a different location. Overall took about 2 weeks to hire.

Interview Question – If I told you to move those shelves (which were leaning up against a wall at the time) and that's all I told you, where would you put them?   View Answer

Loss Prevention Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Memphis, TN

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at AutoZone in June 2012.

Interview Details – Interviewed by a female & male who preferred the old style Reid techniques. Both had the really fake & bizarre personalities. They were like actors reading from a script.

Interview Question – Questions were not difficult but the whole interview atmosphere was so bizarre. The female was a bit overbearing & the male had a personality like a used car dealer.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – The employees who interviewed me were too phony & scripted. They gave me the creeps & they don't even pay that well.
