    Interview

    I was interviewed at one store, and supposed to be hired there as a Parts Manager at a higher pay rate and full time. HOWEVER, I was offered a low paying basic entry level part time job 24 miles away! Being currently unemployed for almost one year, I reluctantly took it. A decision I still regret to this day!

    Pay and schedule are non-negotiable. Employees are numbers.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at AutoZone in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was called for a job interview on March 7th. I got there about 10 mins before the interview. After notifying one of the associates I was here, she went to tell the manager. I ended up waiting an extra 30 mins before even meeting the guy. We went into the back room and sat by the bathroom. He seemed extremely uninterested, and did not say anything about the job. He basically rambled on about what autozone is. Needless to say, I didn't get the job, or a call back. Called back 2 weeks later and he said they haven't found the hours yet.

    Interview

    Rigid, yet fraught with simpletons. The quality of the workforce and management is suspect. They worry about things that are not paramount, yet ignore the differentiators that are key to success. It might be best to look elsewhere. Avoid Rixey.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at AutoZone in February 2011.

    Interview

    The interview started initially via a phone conversation and after passing that rather basic question and answer it moved to a 1:1 interview. The 1:1 took approximately 1 hour and consisted of the basic customer service questions. The interview then moved on to a Q&A on knowledge of troubleshooting automotive problems. The interviewer would describe a problem and then ask for possible solutions. After the troubleshooting Q&A we moved on to naming parts of the automotive system, such as name all of the parts in the front and rear braking system. The interview ended there and awaiting a background check.

    Interview Questions

    • The unexpected questions were the automotive troubleshooting questions. I was prepared for a business interview so I was caught off guard needing to put my other skills to use in a matter of seconds.   Answer Question
