    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at AutoZone in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    They ask about your general car knowledge. Attention to detail is also critical due to the scenarios they enact and want you to provide a viable answer to. The initial call for the interview can take up to a month, and the actual hire date can come as soon as a few days to two weeks.

    Interview Questions
    • They don't really ask unexpected questions... It's more so about the knowledge. You must have a somewhat grip on car parts, or at least the basics, and know how they work. The rest of the knowledge is picked up through ongoing training.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was called back within a week or so after putting in my application. I went in for interview with the store and district manager. They asked me the usual questions such as why do you want to work here, tell me about a challenging experience, why did you leave your last job. One element that was different was they asked a multitude of questions about different systems of the car such as suspension, charging, engine internals and air conditioning. They called me back the next day with an offer.

    • They asked me about a time a car broke down and how I was able to get it running.   Answer Question
