    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at AutoZone.

    Interview

    First interview went well but the second wasn't great. The first interview was very informal and felt relaxed whereas the second interview with the district manager was tense and pretty annoying actually. Had to wait on the manager for a good hour after my scheduled time and it was just completely unorganized.

    Autozoner Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AutoZone (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and got a call back on the same day. I was interviewed in Chicago during what the manager called a "hiring blitz" for the summer. The interview questions were almost exactly the same as the questions on the online application, so be prepared with good answers. If you're an engineering student, definitely bring it up because it seemed to impress the hiring manager when I did, even though I don't have much practical experience with cars. Plus I think I'm getting paid at a bit of a higher rate than typical for a part-timer. The hiring process took about two weeks and is as follows:

    1. Apply online
    2. Phone interview (to set up in-person interview)
    3. Interview at Autozone location
    4. Call and/or email received if hired
    5. Set up uniform and name tag pick up / paperwork
    6. 8 hour orientation day
    7. More paperwork, then work
