    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Advance Auto Parts.

    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.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Advance Auto Parts (Chicago, IL) in August 2013.

    Short and to the point. I was reffered by a freind that already worked for the company. I met with the GM and I was hired within days of applying. It's not impossible to get in if you don't know someone but it's a lot more likely that you will get in if you do.
