    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CARQUEST (Lawrenceville, GA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    It was a 30 minute interview and she asked me numerous easy to answer and honest response questions. As a driver you dont need to know about car parts, you will learn the longer you're at the job. My employer is a good judge of character and is very serious about her job but also wants her employees to be happy.

    Sales and Delivery Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at CARQUEST.

    Interview

    I submitted my application to the Carquest website which consisted of entering identification information, work history, and filling out a 50 question multiple choice survey. I received a call within a week of completing the application about a position. The manager was a bit unsure about the availability of the job since he was having trouble with an employee's work status, but had me come in to the store within a couple of days to interview and relate the job details. The interview was a fairly standard introductory conversation with the store manager where he went over the details of my application and the results of the survey. I was hired a week later and began trained for a few days before I was up to working a regular schedule.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at CARQUEST (Watford City, ND) in December 2014.

    Interview

    15 minutes and thats it. Basucally the regional manager was forced to be there and had to get someone hired so he can get back home. He barely asked questions. He also gave me 1.5 days with him, barely showed me how to do anything, gave me a key, handshake and good luck. I struggled the next year just to maintain.
