    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Advance Auto Parts.

    Interview Details

    First step was a call with a recruiter and a "personality" test, pretty standard. It was followed up by a panel conference call, personally a first for me. Approximately 2 weeks later I had a formal panel with the Area HR manager, Regional HR ,the RVP and another personal who's title escapes me. standard behavior questions with some others added to the mix.
