    Assistant Service Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tyler, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Pep Boys (Tyler, TX).

    Interview

    The service manager had me complete an online quiz over simple customer service and math. After the quiz results were looked over by the manager, I was called back in to do a one on one interview. Times available to work, experience with automobiles and what I wanted to get/learn from the company was talked about. I really thought that the interview was more about my personality and how I might interact with other associates if hired.

    Interview Questions

    • Do you know how to fix cars/ Can you work well on a computer? Describe your abilities in scheduling other associates. What are your abilities in selling products to customers?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They'll start with a lower pay offer. Go up a little so that when you compromise on the rate of pay, you'll be happy.

    Staff Accountant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Pep Boys (Philadelphia, PA) in June 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online for an entry level general accounting position through the company website after finding the listing on Career Builder or a similar web page. I was contacted by phone from an employee in HR to arrange an in-person interview. My first round of interviews was with an HR manager, the department manager, and a department supervisor. I was called back a short time later for a second round of interviews, this time with the other department supervisor, and the Assistant Controller.
    The interviews were very basic. HR focused on why I was leaving my previous employer. The manager seemed to be focused on my ability to fit into the team. The first supervisor asked similar questions, and the second supervisor basically just did a line-item review of my resume. The Assistant Controller asked about my responsibilities at my previous employer, and also about how I felt that I would fit in.
    None of the questions were technical in nature, and they did not use the STARS interview process. Overall, the main focus seemed to be on personality and work ethic, which I thought was a good idea for an entry level position.
    Within a week I received a call to offer me the position, which I took.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. The original offer was in the ballpark of what I anticipated for an entry level position.

    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Phila, PA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pep Boys (Phila, PA) in June 2009.

    Interview

    I applied for a position with the department. You have to fill out an online assessment and application. If you dont pass you dont get an interview. The assesment just tests your honesty etc.
    I arrived a 9am to meet with HR rep to interview. The corporate office is located in a ghetto off of Henry avenue. The parking lot is surrounded by barbed wire with a guard that waves to you as you drive by him.
    Once you park you enter a run down building that looks to have been an old mill. You check in with the guard and sit in a sparse lobby. I waited till 930 for my hr interview. They were apologetic for being late. They asked the general questions and sent me on my way to interview with VP of the department. The VP was very nice but was a very odd interview. He mostly talked about himself and his experiences at advance auto in an interesting southern drawl. I listened politely but decided this was not for me.

    Interview Questions

    • No tough questions - I just had to listen to old war stories   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Run down building, bad part of Phila. Did not feel i was on the same page as the hiring VP

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Pep Boys (Philadelphia, PA).

    Interview

    Brought me in for my first interview, interivewer left immediatley and said there was a major problem they were dealing with at the moment. came back and it seemed like the interview went really well. Then he said that because of the problem i wasnt able to meet with the original second interviewer and so i met with one of the head honchos. I feel like this guy was trying to bust my balls and i didnt respond to it very well and i think that is why i didnt get the job offer. Im not sure if there was a problem or that was just their strategy for interviewing. for the cherry on top, the first guy i interviewed with told me he would let me know about their decision on the position. he never got back to me about it.
