    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at AutoZone.

    Interview

    Multiple interviews to be hired as a MIT. Met with DM,RM,LP, and HR Manager. The process consisted of a few solo interviews with the local Dm. Then it was a panel interview after with the regional management team. After that I was contacted a few days later to start my background check. That process took a few weeks. Some people I have hired after I started have taken days. It all depends on the speed of counties reporting back.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at AutoZone.

    Interview

    The active part of the process took about 4 weeks. Everyone I spoke with was dedicated and pleasant. My only real concern with the process is that it seems that the normal method if you're not going to receive an offer is to just stop communicating with candidates. While candidates would like to win the job, it's better to tell people if they do not get the job. Just leaving people hanging isn't very professional and is inconsiderate. I actually enjoyed and had fun with the interviews but the leaving you hanging part eats up the goodwill toward the company.

    Interview Questions

    • Pretty typical management questions regarding leadership, training, and running a business.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AutoZone.

    Interview

    I was a current Parts Sales Manager working there for about a year prior to my interview. The interview was a panel interview with the Regional Manager, Human Resources Manager and Loss Prevention Manager. Mostly basic questions about loss prevention, ability to handle stressful environments, policy knowledge and hiring/coaching employees. It lasted for about 1 hour.

    Interview Questions

    • None really. If you've made it to that interview, you have the answers to their questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I didn't negotiate my wage; they offered and I accepted. If I had to do it over again, I would have counter offered to get a higher starting wage.
