I applied through other source. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Brake Check (Houston, TX) in Feb 2014

Interview

Did my research on the Company this site. The reviews for the most part are fairly accurate. I did not even apply to this company, they pulled my resume from TX Work Solutions website and called me in for an interview. I have been in retail for nearly 18 years and I have never had an interview where 5 candidates were scheduled at the same time. We were all called into the conference room at the same time and asked to speak about ourselves. The VP of Operations (Allen Yakes) was the interviewer. After we finished he gave us the spill on the company’s background and what they were looking for in management candidates. After he finished we were told that 2nd interviews would be scheduled later in the week and if you are chosen to continue in the process expect a phone call. I received a call and email from their recruiter (Irene Bellard) to come in for a 2nd interview at one of their locations for a Single or Multi Unit management position (DON’T BELIEVE THE PITCH). I went to the interview and sat waiting 20 minutes and the interview took all of 3 minutes. I was asked, "what can you bring to the company that no one else can?" followed by "How would you handle an employee that's not doing a repair job the way you were trained to do it?" Then I was told, "You are what we are looking for in a manager and I want to offer you a job." He asked what my salary requirement where and that's when he decided to let me know that new hires have to learn the business first before given his on single unit store, so all new managers start off as a Service Manager in Training to learn the repair side of the business and the base pay is between $500 and $650 weekly. After you master that you move into the sales side of the business and then into a Store Director's position and you will be paid 40K plus 16% of comp sells which is paid every 4 weeks. I thought "OK" I don't have any automotive background (which they tell you is not necessary or required and considering the Owners came from a restaurant background that would be like the pot calling the kettle black) that maybe it wasn't such a bad idea, so I asked if I could get back to him later in the day with an answer. Well you know what they say about "first impressions” i.e., The King Author round-table interview and having to wait 20 minutes after my scheduled interview time to be seen. Well to make matters worse, I had to call the VP of Operations 3 times with 3 messages to get a call back for me to accept the offer. When he did call back I wasn't able to answer the phone and he didn't bother to leave a message. I called him back and he finally answered his phone. I told him I would like to accept the position and he was happy I decided to come on board with them. He was going to get in contact with their recruiter and have her email me the paperwork to fill out and send back to her, then he would set a date for me to meet with him to get me started with orientation classes. Well, 3 days later and 3 phone calls to him and 4 to his recruiter I finally got an email with the paperwork. I just have a feeling this is just the beginning of a nightmare and a look at things to come with this company...Communication thus far is a concern. I am sticking with my gut feelings on this one and not fill out the paperwork and keep searching for a better opportunity. I just declined the job offer. Hope this helps!!

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Brake Check (San Antonio, TX) in Apr 2013

Interview

The interview was very informal. The interviewer was more than 30 minutes late and did not seem to care that they were late. The questions were remedial for non-salary staff. After 10 minutes, I was offered the job. Training was less than a week and then sent to a store. The sales training was too basic even with lack of experience in automotive. I was promoted in less than two weeks from MIT to Service Manager.

Interview

The interview I had lasted only about two mins, I have been in management for two decades, I was basically asked to drive to a few locations and if interested in offer call the recruiter ansd accept employment. However under the new vice presedent of operations your interview will be such as they are looking for leaders not managers. Dress business casual, maintain constant eye contact, be honest and put forth an energetic additude and you'll be hired.
