    It was in the back while sitting on a bucket in a crowded corner way too close to the young manager who kept flirting way too much. It happened the same moment after I asked to see the manager.

    Auto Parts Sales Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at AutoZone in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied on line. I was scheduled to meet with a Store Manager and District Manager twice. Each time, the interview was cancelled and I was given 4-6 hours notice. Finally met with both Store Manager (looked like in his twenties) and District Manager (looked like he was 50 to 65). Based on the Store Manager's questions, this was his first interview, and he asked me my age (an illegal question). I declined to answer. Other questions asked were, "Tell me about your knowledge of cars." I replied that I was a SCCA mechanic for over 10 years, I have 2 cars all with 200,000+ miles and 1 car with 190, 000 miles. Since I do a lot of maintenance myself, the cars are in great shape. At the close of the interview I was told the salary would be $10.00 per hour. At the end of the interview, I was directed to website. I went to the website, answered several questions; the web site appeared to be broken, because it would not save my answers. Following day re-answered the questions. I was offered the job at a reduced rate of $9.25/hour. When I inquired about the $10.00/hour mentioned in the interview, the Store Manager said, "This is the best rate I can offer." On Saturday 1/17/2015, the store manager asked me to meet him at 2:00 PM to complete the I-9 form, W-4 form. I arrived at the store at 1:55 PM (early) and met the Assistant Store Manager who informed me the Store Manager just left; and the Assistant Store Manager couldn't access the computer to print the I-9 form and other forms (i.e. this was a waste of my time). On Monday afternoon, the Store Manager never called to apologize. I called the District Manager and explained what happened on Saturday (The Store Manager was a no show for a scheduled meeting). The District Manager said, "I don't care. It's not my problem. Go talk with the Store Manager."

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at AutoZone.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed with Brent R. He was professional and friendly and made the interview process very comfortable. We talked about knowledge for the specific job. We talked about my previous work history and experience. He asked me to relate my experience to how I would fit in at AutoZone. He asked about criminal history and driving records and we discussed using appropriate safety measures and equipment. We also talked about future opportunity within the corporation and the ability to transfer to other geographical areas. The only thing I left not knowing about was the pay scale. We will see if and when I am contacted.

    Why do you want to work for autozone? What is included in a tune up? Do you know how to do an oil change? Those were the typical questions I remember them asking me. You don't have to know anything and it will be apparent if you lie to them. Just be honest to them if you don't know anything.

    Store Autozoner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Spring Valley, CA (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Spring Valley, CA (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at AutoZone in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was called to attend an interview for a Saturday morning. When I received the call, woman on phone said if I was still interested, and if I wanted to come in for an interview, she instructed me to come in anytime after 9am. I was not given a store address or a specific time, so I ended up having to call a couple Spring Valley locations in San Diego to find out the location. I called ahead of time to see if 11am was an ok time. Manager on the phone confirmed that this was ok. When I arrived, there was another woman ahead of me which was ok, as I did not mind waiting. I was told to wait patiently and the manager would be with me in a brief moment. I waited for about and hour before leaving without the interview. Very unprofessional, bad experience. Not worth it.
