    Supply Inventory Planner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Raleigh, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Advance Auto Parts (Raleigh, NC) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process lasted approximately 1.5 hours. I had two interviewers, they interviewed me separately. They did not ask the typical "weakness/strength" or "why AAP" questions. They were more interested in gauging personality, potential, and decision making. It became more of a back-and-forth dialogue at the end. They maintained a friendly demeanor and was happy to answer all manner of questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Explain the importance of the store's layout (planogram).   Answer Question
    • Give examples of a time when overstocking will happen either negligently/accidentally/purposefully.   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Advance Auto Parts (Huntsville, AL).

    Interview

    Applied on line and had to take an assessment test and get an passable score in order to move forward. The first step was a phone interview with the area DM for the store in which you applied, then a one on one interview with the DM, panel interview with other store managers and DM, and a phone call with the RVP.

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Advance Auto Parts (Topeka, KS).

    Interview

    Same as GM process, more financial questions. Simple things really. Just answer honestly because they already know the answers to most of the questions they ask you. Keep it simple and straightforward and you'll be okay. Odds are if they're talking to you for the job it's because they want you.
