Positive Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Advance America (Mobile, AL) in October 2015.

Interview

The interview was quick and to the point, everything sounded great. I was told there would be set hours and bonuses promised and I would be put in a store close to where I was moving to. Once hired, all if that changed and it took a month to call me back to work after I was hired.

    Interview

    I applied online through their website on September 12. A district manager called me back on September 21 and scheduled an interview for the following day. During the interview, I was asked to summarize my previous experience that was relevant to the position. I was asked about my sales ability. A role-play to sell a product of the interviewer's chose was also part of it. I was told more interviews had to be held and that I would hear back in 1-2 weeks if chosen to move forward. On September 25 I was called and asked to come back in to pick-up a drug test form and to go in for a drug test. On September 28, I got a call back to come in for an observation interview where I observe the staff at a center to see if I still am interested. After that, they ran my background check and called every single one of my references. I was contacted October 5 to be told everything checked out and given a start date.

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Advance America (New Albany, MS) in March 2015.

    Interview

    It was an open house interview, you bring your resume and they go over your skills with you in the first interview. If decided you are a good candidate, they send you in with an interview with the district manager who then goes into further detail about what the job is about and tells you about the company. The DM also asks you questions about your past experiences, why you left/are leaving your job, ect.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Advance America (Pensacola, FL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Unusual questions. One that I recall was I was asked to "sell" (some type of item that I was handed) to the interviewing manager. Not a good interview question, because how am I to sell something I do not know anything about or believe is better than a competitor's in some fashion?

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Advance America (Pekin, IL) in July 2012.

    Interview

    I initially interviewed for a position as an assistant with the company. I had a telephone interview and then two in person interviews. At the second interview I was told that a decision would be made in the next two days and I would be contacted either way. I heard nothing for over a week. When I went into the center to make my payment I told the manager that I felt it was very unprofessional of the district manager for not calling. I received a call 2 days after that telling me they went with another candidate. Two to three weeks later I got another call from the district manager with an offer for a position as a center manager. She said that I was a leader and not a follower. I was then hired in as a store manager.
