    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pep Boys (Tyler, TX).

    Interview

    The service manager had me complete an online quiz over simple customer service and math. After the quiz results were looked over by the manager, I was called back in to do a one on one interview. Times available to work, experience with automobiles and what I wanted to get/learn from the company was talked about. I really thought that the interview was more about my personality and how I might interact with other associates if hired.

    They'll start with a lower pay offer. Go up a little so that when you compromise on the rate of pay, you'll be happy.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pep Boys (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    The interview was pretty breezy. I went in and the manager was very nice, and after about 20 minutes of chatting he asked me if I could work once the paperwork was through. I don't think he interviewed anyone else after me. The only aspect that bothered me was the fact that we stood through the whole thing because the manager didn't have an office.
