    Commercial Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Roanoke, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Advance Auto Parts (Roanoke, VA) in December 2012.


    It's a very standard, by-the-book S*T*A*R interview process. Come prepared with 3-4 personal scenarios of how you reacted to a specific situation in the previous leadership role, the obstacles you faced, the actions you implemented and the results of your actions.

    Interview Questions

    • Have you ever had a disgruntled TM, who although had unlimited talents and experience, but was negatively impacting others on the team? What did you do in this situation ?   1 Answer


    Initial offer was well below what current, equally experienced TM's we're being paid. After negotiating, the company came back with an offer that was more in line and I accepted the position. The base salary difference was roughly 15k lower when negotiations started, and by the end, I was within 5k of my initial salary requirement.
