    Pros

    Get to learn Automotive parts industry. Thats it. Nothing Positive about the company or position.
    Biggest waist of 4 years of my life.

    Cons

    After hired, Was told moto is " Culture of thrift" Wow! was that ever true.
    Store Manager works 50 hours a week and if an employee calls in,then you get to work that shift as well.
    Equipment/ computer software is ancient and breaks down all time,Then you get to spend hours talking to someone in Mexico to fix problem.
    The Daily / Weekly Reports. Holy Cow! all I can say,DUMB! You better not be on the bottom of them.
    Micro managed to the hilt.
    If you get a Commercial store then its all twice as bad.
    Honestly I could go on and on, The negative aspect of company goes on and on.
    And Bonuses are a joke.
    Promotion is not there, The DM's do not ever leave position in order for one to open up,When one does there are 20 to 30 store managers interviewing for it.

    Advice to Management

    If your coming from retail management as a outsider ,you will not like this company.Majority don't last.

    Pros

    You get a gas card and a car. Decent but expensive insurance.

    Cons

    Training...lack of it. Fellow employees back-stabbing and in-fighting. Poor upper management that dishes out regular beat-downs.

    Advice to Management

    Be the "Culture" you talk so much and highly about.

    Pros

    Fun bunch of co-workers with good hearts. Discount on auto parts and everyday learning of the auto industry! Steady 40+ hours of work with decent pay for the retail business.

    Cons

    Hours are never set and always changing; you don't know what you will be working until Sunday for the next week. Also they require that every Parts manager work at least two close the open shifts (clopens); meaning you close the store at 10pm and then have to be back to open at 7am, so you really only get about 5-6 hours sleep after you eat and wind down and the commute. you are required to upsell everything even when you know they don't really need it and can tell they don't have a lot of extra cash they feed off the poor.

    Advice to Management

    Allow for set schedules and support the store manager more and promote and hire at least within state.
