    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Advance Auto Parts (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    Phone interview followed by one pretty brief in person interview. Everyone was nice and very accomodating. Both interviews were pretty standard, and were mostly just to feel out my personality and not so much the hard skills. Had the phone interview on a Wednesday and had a job offer by the next Wednesday. It was a pretty quick process.
