    Store Autozoner Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at AutoZone in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    I would say hold out this company can pay a lot more money than they do when you are starting out and they will rail road if they can get away with it.

    Senior Parts Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Santa Ana, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Ana, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AutoZone in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview started off with me telling the manager about myself. I was asked a lot of question about my knowledge of automotive parts and experience. I was also ran through some scenarios about what I would sell a customer if they were buying parts for their car, and what related items I would suggest to them. The interview lasted about one hour long.

    Interview Questions
    • Honestly, all the questions were not hard, because I have experience with automotive parts and management. I would suggest learning the company pledge and AutoZone values.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I received a call stating that I got the job and the highest they could offer was $9.25. I did not try to negotiate because I really wanted the customer service experience.

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at AutoZone.

    Interview Details

    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!

    I interviewed online. The process took 5 days - interviewed at AutoZone in May 2011.

    Negotiation Details
    There is negotiation on pay. Push it and wait until they say "no". When they want someone, they will pay for it.

    Part Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AutoZone in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process I had was a little informal from what I was expecting. The interviewing store manager takes you in back and sits you down in a folding chair while asking the standard interview questions. But it's a parts store, not a lot of opportunity to have an office desk or such niceties.
