    Interview

    Short interview that asked simple questions about your history with working on cars and other small talk questions. Basically the job is like any other part time job interview just making sure that you can work a decent amount of hours and are willing to work hard.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Discount Tire (Colorado Springs, CO).

    Interview

    I did my research online and located the part-time application posted on their website. I typed it neatly and completely and mounted it in a nice clear-view folder with my resume. Walked into the store well-dressed, and asked to speak the manager. I handed him my folder and shook his hand and communicated my interest in the job. Before long, I was called back for an interview, drug tested, and hired. Later I found out that most applicants walk in and ask for applications, then proceed to fill them out in pen right there in the showroom. Apparently my behavior through the whole process was pretty stellar compared to what they are used to.

    You'll be competing for the job with a bunch of high-school kids most likely, so little things like typing your application and presenting it professionally will surely secure a job for yourself. The interview was very basic with common questions.

    Be sure to go in clean shaved and with well groomed hair, as that is company policy for all employees.

    Interview

    Extremely basic process. Simply want to know if you're hard working enough to do manual labor all day. May ask some basic ethical questions as well. Easiest way to get a job here is to simply know someone. If DTC is hiring at the time, getting a job here is very easy.
