I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at AutoZone (Wilson, NC) in March 2016.

Interview

Went in and talked to the manager from another store that was 45 mins down the road. I originally applied for commercial sales at one store and ended up going to another store that was 10 mins down the road. we finally did the interview, talking about the dress code, benefits ETC. Then he told me with your knowledge i want you to come and work at this store and train to become a manger.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AutoZone.

    Interview

    General automotive/retail experience "by script" questions. I was initially interview by the Store Manager which went very well. When it came to my (second?) interview by the District Manager,
    he was very "robotic, unemotional, in a hurry attitude, only wanted numbers produced questions type" of person which IMMEDIATELY set the tone for me. He decided at the last minute that my requested salary was above HIS acceptance level and offered me much less.

    I then got up and said, "Thanks, but no thanks......................you're getting more "bang for the buck" with my experience and "certifications" on top of that..................what I'm asking for in salary is far less than what you're paying other PSM's that do not have the level of experience I do." He knew I was telling the truth and tried to make it sound as if HE would consider it and get back to me on what he decided.

    I then told him not to worry about it, I have better offers' waiting for me to reply. "Have a nice day".

    Interview Questions

    • How many years of automotive/retail experience do you have?
      Can you work ANY HOURS because as a PSM you have to be available 24/7 if we need you?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The "culture" is not based on ensuring you have all of the necessary training to do the job required "according to the job description". There really is NO TRAINING, just a couple of time wasting trainers that have NO automotive experience trying to make it sound as if you've just entered the last job you'll ever want! Very wasteful time management on their part.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at AutoZone (Leesburg, VA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Slow process but quick once the senior management clicks a button. Maintain proper availability and honest compensation requirements. To get an honest expectation of an offer. Be prepared to wait for a response, but let them know you are interested and you await their answer within the next few days.

    Parts Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Saint Petersburg, FL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at AutoZone (Saint Petersburg, FL).

    Interview

    Fairly easy interview separately with the Store Manager and District Manager. I did a phone screen with the Store Manager which was 5-10 mins in length. Most of the time was spent telling me about AZ.

    No difficult questions and I was upfront about my automotive knowledge, which is limited. They are looking for people who like people. The technical can be taught.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Very little flexibility. There are set ranges that are very tight. Going outside of the range requires regional approval. Can be done under unusual circumstances.
