    Intern Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Advance Auto Parts in September 2019.

    Interview

    The interviewing process was very low stress and the first interview felt like a conversation. I really appreciated that they didn't expect college students to have to find the time in their schedule to actually come to the office and interview, and just had two phone interviews instead. Unfortunately the communication afterwards was very poor and they called me months after and asked if I was still interested.

    Inside Customer Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Roanoke, VA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Advance Auto Parts (Roanoke, VA) in July 2019.

    Interview

    Initial call from entry level recruiter to discuss baseline expectations of iCAM role. Phone call with hiring manager(s) to include situational (STAR) questions and those related to previous experience i.e. why are you interested in this position? Face to face interview with the Call Center Sales Manager: total formality. Bait and switch offer for a lower paying role. The company explained that they decided to hire internally instead of externally, and switched up the position being offered to a much lower paying role. Said I could apply for the original position if/when it became available. Highly deceptive communication practices. Horrible benefits package offered, the only affordable option for medical is catastrophic coverage.
