    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Tractor Supply in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Very detailed interview process. They live by their motto "Interview hard, manage easy!". Entire process consisted of 5 total interviews, first you are screened by a recruiter, then passed down to a SM for the initial phone interview, which is really just a meet and greet to set up the first in person interview. The first interview is where the meat and potatoes start to show, they'll ask you about your qualifications, experience, and then a series of scenario questions. After that, was sent to another SM for a less formal session, but be prepared for more scenario/role playing questions. If you make it through all that, you'll sit with an area manager for more experience related questions. Finally, a phone interview from another DM which was basically just a recap of the others.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days - interviewed at Tractor Supply in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was much as others here have already detailed it; there is an initial phone interview followed by a two person panel interview.The phone interview asks you a lot of standard interview questions such as situations you've been in previously, your overall experience, and what you're looking for in a job. After that I sat down with the district and store manager and was asked similar questions about my current job and past experiences. Once you receive an offer of employment they have a very convenient online portal for filling out paperwork and downloading a copy of their employee handbook.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Tractor Supply.

    Interview Details

    Store manager is very rude and hateful to all customers and during interview process.First off called me a lier saying the interview was at 1:30 but she clearly told me 1:00. Kept glancing at store security monitor and talking to other person setting in on interview about what store employees were doing. Seemed intimidated by my background, education and experience. The manager does not know what a smile is or did she understand any of my answers to the questions which where all agriculture related. The whole interview process shows me the manager has zero people skills, absolutely no agriculture background and does not belong in this type of retail store.

    The interviewing process was over them phone, its lasted around an 30-45 minutes. The district manager seemed distracted while interviewing, I would think you would/could make time to fully focus on my answers as much as possible.

    I applied online. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Tractor Supply in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed by a panel of 4. All stone faced. Stressful from the start. Asked a series of routine questions, eg: Your greatest accomplishment, etc. and some bizarre questions like, how would you handle an employee that didn't talk much, and what would people say about you at your funeral.
    Two of the panel members said nothing and took notes throughout the 45 minute interview.
    I was not offered the position, and frankly, I'm relieved.

    I applied online - interviewed at Tractor Supply in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was probably interviewed four,or five times. You will be asked many of the same questions time and time again. You will meet with the store manager, other Assistant Managers, and the District Manager. I was also asked if I was willing to do a discreet walk through ant my former place of employment with the SM, and DM. I was willing, but it never happened. I thought this was odd? Be prepared!
