    Parts Tech Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at O'Reilly Auto Parts in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had two interviews, took their test, and was given all the information about benefits. I got my hopes up, just to have them dashed... two weeks later. The whole process was kind of a joke and they led me on. They really made it seem like I had the job and would not respond to my emails or phone calls about the position after the interview. Really annoying, because they really did make it seem like I was a perfect fit.

    Delivery Driver Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Interview was a two step process. First I had an interview with the district manager. It was pretty simple and straightforward. He just asked questions about myself/what I like to do on my free time , why I chose O'reilly. Once that interview was over he said he liked me and wanted me to meet with the store manager of the store I would be working at. He set me up for an appointment for my second interview with the store manager. This part was a little longer. They went through a sheet with about 30 questions asking about myself and situational questions e.g. what do you do if a customer is angry, qualities about yourself, how are you a good driver. Then I had to take a alphanumeric test where you match sequences of numbers with other sequences . They give you 5 minutes and you can only get one wrong. I passed that and they offered me the job as long as I passed my urine test and background check.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation was difficult because I had already put the minimum wage as my starting job pay. They upped it to 8.50 and I accepted. Im not too picky on the pay right now, I just want a good job.
