This was a promotional interview as I was already employed by Advance. I met with the district leader and a store manager (who differed from my own). They presented questions to assess my abilities. Then they allowed me to ask questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Advance Auto Parts (Morrisville, PA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Very layed back, but informative, friendly, and concise. I originally applied online through the Advance Auto Parts website and received a call back within a week of submission. I setup an interview time and date, and met with the Store Manager in the back, in his office. The parts manager was already seated when we arrived and he sat in on the interview and also asked some questions. After the interview was nearing completion, the corporate sales manager introduced herself and I was told if I received a job offer that I would be reporting directly to her. Everyone was very friendly, professional, and attentive.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Advance Auto Parts (Jacksonville, NC) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Began with a telephone screening by a corporate HR rep, then an online personality/leadership test that took about an hour. About 3 or 4 days before the store manager called me and scheduled an interview. Pretty informal interview in the store, basically just a meet and greet so the store can get a feel for who you are and what you can offer. About a week and the district leader called me to speak further and answer any questions. The job offer came back a few days later.
