    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Les Schwab Tire Centers (Bakersfield, CA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online. Received a call back within a week & set up an interview for a week later.
    The interview went very smoothly. Although I was extremely nervous, I clearly had no reason to be. They not only want to get to know you as an employee, but as a person in general, which was very refreshing compared to other interviews I have had in the past. Very profressional & admirable establishment that I couldnt be more happy to become a part of.

    Interview

    Applied online as a part-timer right out of high school, got a call about a week later from the assistant manager. Had no automotive experience, but was willing to work any amount of hours at minimum wage. Because of that, there really was no interview, just an informal sit-down with the assistant managers. After 2 months, I was moved to full time at a higher wage with benefits.

    Interview Questions

    • None, I pretty much just came in to fill out paperwork.   Answer Question

    Interview

    I applied in person and was told to go to the online portal. I went through the process and never heard back from the company. Fairly typical for a company of this size. I know that they work you pretty hard once you get there though. I will keep trying as it seems that you could do well without a college degree.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Les Schwab Tire Centers (Pendleton, OR) in August 2013.

    Interview

    It was very strange. I spoke with the assistant manager about the job which was basically a very informal interview. Mostly about my family and my kids and what I liked to do. Only about two questions that actually related to the job and my experience. Then I drove home and was called back in on the same day to speak with the store manager. He sat me down and told me all about Les Schwab and how great the company was. Then he just gloated about himself. Telling me all the store he has been at and how much his yearly salary and bonus was. It was by FAR the most unprofessional, inappropriate interview I have ever sat through.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions. Mostly just questions that could end up in a discrimination lawsuit.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Very poor. I wasn't even told how much I was going to make or what job I would be doing. Had I not been desperate for work it would have been a bigger issue.
