    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at O'Reilly Auto Parts.

    Interview

    It was fast and simple. I submitted an application online through their "careers" page after a friend told me that they were hiring. I heard back from the manager of a local store within a few days. We set up a date for the interview (the following day) over the phone. The interview was one-on-one with the manager and took about half an hour. The manager was extremely polite and only asked me a few job-specific questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at O'Reilly Auto Parts.

    Interview

    It was a simple 30-minute interview that consisted about them asking what experience I had and what interested me in applying. Given I have no knowledge about vehicles and car parts, my interviewer took that into account and asked why I intended to apply anyways if I had no experience. Very basic interview, not too many technical questions regarding auto parts.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at O'Reilly Auto Parts (Springfield, MO) in February 2015.

    Interview

    After applying, I spoke with a recruiter in HR with a phone interview. They scheduled me for testing and then a face to face interview with Supervisor. Interviews are usually behavioral based interviews. It seemed that they go off of the script, but in the long run, they must have some sort of script they follow to ask the same questions at each interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at O'Reilly Auto Parts.

    Interview

    They first did a meet and greet out side on a bench where the manager just asked me about my personality and why I wanted to work for the company and asked me about my knowledge and took my word for it. They then did a computerized test on my automotive knowledge which was fairly challenging even for me having had just graduated from a two year automotive trade school with a AS degree. Good news is that if you get a low score or even flat out fail they have positions at the company for just about any level of knowledge the test scores you to have from 0-Expert.
    Once I was scored they let me know what positions I qualified for which they had open for me to choose from and they let me pick the position which I was comfortable with starting with informing me that even tho i choose do delivery drive that I could move up when I felt ready (which eventually I did to parts tech) Once background search is passed they send you off for a urine sample and once they have the official word you have passed that as well then they bring you in for your uniform fitting and first day of training/work. Not bad.

    Interview Questions

    • What does ABS stand for?" and "What is a half shaft?" May ask you show knowledge and say assemble a sway bar end link in the correct fashion, may set a handful of sensors in front of you and ask you to identify the DPFE sensor.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I requested 15/hr and I was offered 10/hr while being informed that was the most they could possibly start me at and that most start at min wage which was 7.25 at the time so I was satisfied with this process and with the outcome.
