    Store Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at RaceTrac Petroleum in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a phone call a week later for the phone interview. Two days after that, I had my 1:1 interview which took roughly 30 to 45 minutes. It went well. I didn't hear from them again until two weeks later via email stating about orientation. After orientation, you are given your training schedule, which is for a week, and at the end of training you find out if you're a good fit for the company or not.

    Only one person does the hiring and interview process throughout the region for each region. So don't get discouraged if you haven't heard back from them right away.

    Co-Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at RaceTrac Petroleum.

    Interview Details

    There are two interview processes. First, the Hiring Manager will ask about how your previous job experience will help benefit the company. They look for that personality that makes them go wow. If you past this, you meet with your store manager (and sometimes with the co-manager) and they ask you questions as well.

    Interview Questions
    • Some store managers will ask you to greet customers that walk into the store. This is they're way of seeing if you will shy away or if you are very outgoing. Note, you will not be in a Racetrac uniform but in your own clothes, so some interviewees get very uncomfortable because of this. They like to ask you about different scenarios, like how you diffused a difficult situation, how you went out your way to help a customer. Overall, where do you see yourself with Racetrac?   Answer Question

    Store Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at RaceTrac Petroleum in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was very interesting, the hiring manager overall made me very comfortable in expressing my thoughts and it felt more like a conversation. To my surprise my interview was actually inside a RaceTrac location. It was very hard to pay close attention to the question due to the constant interruptions, the positive to this was I was able to spend time observe the culture. The environment is very fast paced, full of happy team members that all seem to share the same desire to please the customers. Some of the questions that I was asked were based on the companies core values ( Please describe a time were you had to be honest with a supervisor or co-worker and it gave you uncomfortable, Tell me about a time your had a miscommunication with a co-worker, Share with me your biggest accomplishment, what motivates you)The answers to the questions must be detailed. I was then taken on a walk of the store and met the team. The position details were shared with me and some of RaceTrac history. I then received a phone call back for a second interview ( they call it an RJP)to spend with the store manager. It was another store walk and time for me to find out if this was the place for me.

    Interview Details

    Interview went great. Had to stand up in the back of the store. But i guess that's getting you prepared for the job. Also asked questions about previous work history. Would you still see yourself working for RaceTrac in the future. What made you decide to apply to the store. Also what do you think is easiest and hardest about providing customer service.

    Be patient with the process. I had to play phone tag. Also had to go into a second interview which was really just a tutorial of the day to day basis of life as a associate.
