    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at AutoZone (Houston, TX (US)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    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

    Negotiation

    Not a single piece of negotiation can happen

They called me back the next day with an offer.
