    I had 4 interviews before hired. Phone, manager, team, directors. The first two had some skills testing that reasonably fit the job. Don't overdress. Business casual is best. Suit and tie would be overkill. Some folks wear shorts and many wear neon sneakers. There interview rooms weren't ideal, but the tone was hospitable. Feel comfortable to ask anything.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Interstate Batteries.

    Interview

    My interview process was laid back and was very informal. We sat down and at lunch at local restaurant and talked about some things that were going on in the news and eventually transitioned to some of your more generic interview questions. Most of the questions evenly balanced between personality and work experience.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Interstate Batteries in May 2013.

    Interview

    I interviewed at Interstate following my freshman year in college, and I thought it was an awesome experience. I recommend this company to everyone that asks; from the CEO to managers, it is a phenomenally run business. The interview process was easy enough, with only a phone call and basic technical questions based on the department you are interviewing for
