    Parts and Service Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Saint Charles, MO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Saint Charles, MO
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a day - interviewed at AutoZone in May 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was hired by Corporate Recruiter, the company no longer uses them, they have "Hire Certified" Managers perform the interview. Now all applications are done on-line and local SM''s have access to the database and apps. Apps are no longer pre-screened by store management team, it is now a long and drawn out process, no longer handled locally. Standard Psych eval is used as well and will block "Good" applicants who do not satisfy the Pschyo-Babble questionnaire.

    Store Autozoner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied 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.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Ana, CA
    Application Details

    I applied 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 applied 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!

    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 applied 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.
