    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AutoZone in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied on line. I was scheduled to meet with a Store Manager and District Manager twice. Each time, the interview was cancelled and I was given 4-6 hours notice. Finally met with both Store Manager (looked like in his twenties) and District Manager (looked like he was 50 to 65). Based on the Store Manager's questions, this was his first interview, and he asked me my age (an illegal question). I declined to answer. Other questions asked were, "Tell me about your knowledge of cars." I replied that I was a SCCA mechanic for over 10 years, I have 2 cars all with 200,000+ miles and 1 car with 190, 000 miles. Since I do a lot of maintenance myself, the cars are in great shape. At the close of the interview I was told the salary would be $10.00 per hour. At the end of the interview, I was directed to website. I went to the website, answered several questions; the web site appeared to be broken, because it would not save my answers. Following day re-answered the questions. I was offered the job at a reduced rate of $9.25/hour. When I inquired about the $10.00/hour mentioned in the interview, the Store Manager said, "This is the best rate I can offer." On Saturday 1/17/2015, the store manager asked me to meet him at 2:00 PM to complete the I-9 form, W-4 form. I arrived at the store at 1:55 PM (early) and met the Assistant Store Manager who informed me the Store Manager just left; and the Assistant Store Manager couldn't access the computer to print the I-9 form and other forms (i.e. this was a waste of my time). On Monday afternoon, the Store Manager never called to apologize. I called the District Manager and explained what happened on Saturday (The Store Manager was a no show for a scheduled meeting). The District Manager said, "I don't care. It's not my problem. Go talk with the Store Manager."

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AutoZone (Donna, TX) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I began my application process through SnagAJob. The application process was easy and the company, like many others utilize an online psychological questionnaire to weed out dishonest employees. I was contacted by store manager and a face-to-face meeting was scheduled to discuss start date, salary, dress-code, and date of orientation. Orientation provides history about the company, the company mission, motto, and expectations.

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions. If you are dishonest then questions are hard because you have to invent answers.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    If you are going to be part-time and have years of experience in auto parts sales negotiate for minimum starting of $8.00-$9.00/hr. Rationale, no benefits for part-time employees besides the 20% employee discount.
