    Store Autozoner Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AutoZone.

    Interview

    First interview was with the store manager of the store that I would eventually work at (not the same city that I live in). The questions consisted of what my work experience was, how much I knew about cars and the different systems, manager asked me to name the parts I knew from the systems named, why I wanted the job, etc. The manager was really chill when interviewing me, and I also got a glimpse of how working in an Autozone would be. Store manager named off the basic duties I would perform if I were to be hired, and was given basic information on company policies involving employees, like dress code.

    Second interview was at the same store, this time with the district manager where I was asked again about my experience, and why I wanted to work there. I was basically already hired because during the interview, I was also asked which store I would prefer to work at, and to list the stores (by city) in order of most preferred to least. At the end of it, I was given a date, time, and location for the orientation. First interview wasn't too bad, and the second interview was a lot less daunting than the first.

    Just a little bit of information, there are 5 Autozone stores within close proximity to my city, including the one located in my city. When asked to list my most preferred to my least preferred landing spot when hired, I unsurprisingly had the one in my city at the top of my list, with the store I was being interviewed at right at the bottom of the list because it was the furthest distance. I ended up at that store. I had to drive about 60 miles round trip to and from work for 4-5 days a week on minimum wage for almost a year. Definitely got screwed over, but what do you expect from a minimum wage part-time job.

    Anonymous Employee in Mount Clemens, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at AutoZone (Mount Clemens, MI) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Fill out the online application then they call you so you can set down and talk with them. This was a typical interview. Sat down with the store manager she asked me questions about my back ground, work history, told me about the company, and we talked about what would be expected of me. While an automotive back ground is not unimportant they are looking at the positions from more of a retail point of view.
