AC Propulsion Interview Questions

26 AC Propulsion Interview Questions
Question 1 of 26
At AC Propulsion we put a lot of focus on having the best inventory over our competitors. Have you ever made a suggestion on a product line or item?
How to Answer
An engaged employee will notice when changes are required. They make recommendations and suggestions they feel will benefit the organization. Have you ever taken the lead by making a recommendation to your employer?

Answer Example
"I made a recommendation last month that we try a new line of parts after one of our particular vendors shorted us on inventory. The vendor that I suggested was newer to the industry but their customer service was impressive and their pricing was more competitive. We gave them a shot and it worked out really well for us, resulting in cost savings and happier customers."
Answer Example
"I often make small suggestions in the workplace. Minor tweaks here and there that will improve productivity. I prefer working in an environment where employee suggestions are welcomed."

Question 2 of 26
Proper inventory management is very important for the success of our business. Do you have any inventory management experience?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
Talk to the interviewer about any exposure, big or small, that you have had with managing inventory. It is preferable that you talk about inventory experience in the auto parts industry but not necessarily a deal breaker if you don't have any. Have you ever caught an inventory error that saved the company money? Talk about any inventory wins you may have.

Answer Example
"In my current position I was trained on their proprietary inventory management software. My manager wanted me to learn how to forecast trends in inventory needs for the shop. I am not at the level where I can make decisions yet but I am definitely getting there."
Answer Example
"I understand that inventory management is important to the success of AC Propulsion, Inc. which is why I am willing to do what it takes to learn your inventory management system. Although I don't have experience working with inventory management programs, I am confident in my abilities to manage inventory because I am well organized and pay attention to the small details."

Question 4 of 26
If you could choose, would you prefer working in auto parts and service or in auto part sales?
Professional Answers Preview
How to Answer
When it comes to a career in the auto parts industry, there are many different avenues you can choose. Do you consider yourself more of a salesman and people person, or are you more technical / analytical with a preference for the parts and service side? It's great to express a preference, if you have one, but you also want to show the interviewer that you are multi-faceted and able to work in most areas of their business.

Answer Example
"I have always had a strong lean towards sales and service; however, I am also very knowledgeable when it comes to mechanics and parts. I feel that my mechanical knowledge is key to my success in auto part sales. This makes me a very well rounded candidate for you since I can work successfully in most functions."
Answer Example
"I have always had a preference for sales so I do feel that I would prefer to land in a sales driven role. I am very knowledgeable with a variety of parts and would be a valuable member of your auto parts sales team."

About Our Interview Questions

Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.

Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.

The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
