    District Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Wilmington, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Wilmington, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at NAPA Auto Parts in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial contact was via phone where I was screened by the RSM twice, then waitied two weeks until I followed up and an interview was scheduled with the regional office two weeks from then. Interviewed with the regional office and continually needed to follow up weekly for status updates. Questions were standard, there is a math and personality assessment online exam....the entire process took 2months!! I found multiple opportunities with companies that executed their hiring process in a normal timeframe during this cycle and accepted an offer in a similar role with one of their competitors. My advice to NAPA streamline your process for hiring so you don't have to settle for the candidate that only is still on the market months after you start the process...you aren't getting the best, you're getting what's left.

    Interview Questions
    • Do you find yourself to be a "go-getter" hunter or a laid back "gatherer"?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I declined because I was told the offer was coming in, however I had two strong solid offers already on the table from companies that were more aggressively hiring.

    FIlled out a paper application (before they switched to the online-only application process).

    Office/Accounting Help Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at NAPA Auto Parts.

    Interview Details

    I applied online. Received multiple calls from hiring manager to set up interview. Finally set up an interview. Interview started out very typical but turned into a terrible interview. Interviewer mentioned several things that an employer should not mention legally. Interviewer told more about his career, his wife's career, and a previous employee than he interviewed me for the position. He was comparing the work/education I have to theirs. Very unprofessional.

    Interview Questions
    • Gossip is the work of the devil. I cannot tell yet if you are that kind of person...Are you?   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Interviewer was completely rude and offensive after the first few minutes of interview. No way I would ever work for someone like that. Interviewer could not offer salary any where near what I am currently making.

    Interview Details

    I got called from my application a day after I applied. We set up an appointment week later. Everything went well and got the job. I had to do a background check and everything, but the company they used to check is a hassle to deal with after many delays with the background check finally got called to report to the branch I was assigned to. Showed up to work and that is it.
