My experience working at AutoZone was reward, but advancement is political.

Commercial Sales Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at AutoZone full-time for more than a year

ProsThe only pro about working at AutoZone is the experience and the co-workers.

ConsConstant change in leadership. I left after my store manager failed to follow company policy. I advised my RM who ignored the situation as well. Very unprofessonal
