Service Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Very Easy Interview)
I applied online and interviewed at Tire Kingdom.
Interview Details – The interview was similar to others I have been through. The questions were mostly geared towards situational performance. The interviewer asked a number of questions about past experiences of mine and how I handled them. Most of the questions were open ended and gave me the freedom to explain my decision making process. More than half the interview was spent listening to the hiring manager explain the "exciting changes" taking place within their company and how they were looking for managers like myself.
