    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at CARQUEST in January 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online. Was contacted next day via phone. Set up interview for 1 week later. Arrived at location and met with store manager. Asked me typical interview questions. Asked me about my previous job and responsibilities, why I left my last job. Explained that job was listed as Counter Sales Associate but was actually for Shift Manager. Was informed I would hear back in 2-3 weeks. Never heard back.
