    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.

    It was pretty fast. They ask you the same questions you hear at every interview. Then they brought a second person in to ask you some more of the same old questions. Then they send you for your drug test that you have to pay for.

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Advance Auto Parts in July 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online. I received a phone call one day later and came in for an interview the day after that. the interview was about a half hour long and laid back. I then had to pass a drug test and backround check. I came in for the scheduled second interview and then I got the job offer. I've been working there for about a week, absolutely love it and the people I work with. I also have no idea what i'm doing with cars or parts, but dont worry, they train you! but retail and customer service experience helps ALOT. i've had experience for 6 plus years.
