Loss Prevention Interview

Loss Prevention
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.
