    I have been working at AutoZone full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very structured in the way things are done. Company updates and information seems to be well-communicated and available, at least at a store level.

    Cons

    While overall employee training is better than when compared to other companies I've worked for, I think more hours need to be devoted to one-on-one training, rather than the "learn as you go" approach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more consistency in the computer systems. i.e., "green screen", Z-net, etc. Things need to be more intuitive.

    Pros

    Excellent Benefits, Relocation Opportunities all over, Great advancement opportunities.

    Depending on location sales demands unrealistic. Company over stresses certain policies that hinder work and performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, however new labor model is not effective for ALL locations.

    I have been working at AutoZone full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    My store had a good manager that did not get too stressed out (unless upper management was in the area and then he cleaned like a madman).

    Cons

    They tell you that they are looking at you for your own store, but won't even panel interview you when a store opens up. Also, AutoZone has their own culture which can make them seem like a cult at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to be more visible. I can count on one hand the number of times the regional manager has come into my store in the last three years. (All I need is one finger)

    Pros

    Fun environment, Being a HUB driver gives you freedom you don't have someone breathing down your neck all day long.

    Cons

    You have to work goofy hours and once you get to the store to deliver parts you never get any help from that store even if you have a ton of stuff and usually heavy stuff.
