    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Advance Auto Parts in June 2017.

    Interview

    This company is an absolute joke. First of all, they do not use emails. After submitting my resume, HR called me a few times (each time I was in meetings). I called back, but they never picked up. Nobody ever followed up with emails.

    Second, they will never follow up with you after the first interview. I waited for 3 weeks, nobody ever contacted me. I found the number to the HR person (mind you, nobody ever gave me email address or any form of communication). I called and asked whether there were any follow ups. HR didn't know on the spot, but a couple of days later said that they would like to do a second interview with the entire team (via video conference).

    Third, you waste so much time but they don't even fart to give you any feedback. They ask you to complete a pretty time consuming assignment. They ask you to show up on a video but they don't show up on a video. Now, it's been 6 weeks since the last interview. Guess what? No communication from them whatsoever.

    I warn everyone to avoid this company as much as you can. Don't waste your time preparing because it's not valued and appreciated.

    Interview

    Two steps to the interview. One was to meet with the GM of the store and discuss expectations and so forth and the other part was to meet with ANOTHER GM of a different store for him to assess you. A bit tedious if you ask me.
