Murphy Oil Assistant Manager Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Assistant Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Murphy Oil in May 2011.
Interview Details – I applied on the company's website. About a month later I received a phone call from the DM and had a quick phone interview. Then met with the Store Manager for an interview at the store. A couple days later I had a one on one interview with the DM. He offered me the job. I accepted and had to do a drug test and allow a background check. Those took about 3 days. Then I went in to complete video training, which lasted 2 days.
- Why do you want to work here? Answer Question
- How have you handled difficult customers before? Answer Question
Negotiation Details – I did negotiate my pay, but only got 50¢ extra. I'd say start high because they will counter it

Negotiation Details – Did not negotiate. I went in as an assistant and 2 weeks later was offered a store management position making 30,000
