    Pros

    All I can really think of that is a Pro is the major discounts you get from the start. Other then that nothing much else

    Cons

    Pay is horrible for every dury you get from sweeping and mopping to cleaning the restrooms, Manager keeps hiring more people so that barely anybody has full time with benefits. Hourly wage is horrible and he purposely gives bad evaluations so no one gets a raise. Oh and did I mention doing some of the managers duties as well?

    Pros

    not much pros as this company does not really care about its employees. The wast coast style of management does not goes well with the west coast style of life.

    Cons

    Again, this company does not care about its employees, and they see you as highly dispensable. It is just another highlighted auto zone.

    Advice to Management

    Get it together, no one likes working for you, and your turnover rate is through the roof. I would not really recommend

    Pros

    I have not a single pro. Worst aftermarket auto part distributor in the world.

    Cons

    They lie about upward mobility to get you to commit. poor working conditions the regional managers are poorly trained and Not professional at all.

    Advice to Management

    Pay a decent wage and quit lying to kids about opportunity. Invest in technology form programs inside to enhance structure. Quit hiring unqualified unprofessional regional and district managers. This was a waste of two years of my life. I will never get back. Also product knowledge make sure you are telling your team members and customers the truth about your parts quality manufacturer and where they were really made.

    Good discount on parts. Provides fundamental automotive education.

    Pros

    People were great that i worked with. Most customers were thanking me, I could help them out. with what they needed also helping them installing some of the parts.

    Cons

    They keep promising promotions and never give and then use you anyway they can for hours but no raise.

    Advice to Management

    Promise to employees so long but keep that promise not drag it out 5 yrs and then set them up and let them for something they did not have a part in.

    Pros

    Some of the customers were very good people.

    Cons

    Very low pay, they always promise a raise but never do it. threatening employees constantly to cut their hours. Auto's not kept up to date on maintenance. Inner-store politics of playing employees against each other with manager and DM's knowledge. manager and DM showing favoritism between employees.

    Advice to Management

    Highly recommend you do drug and alcohol testing on ALL management. Treat their employees with respect. The drivers are a big part of the success of the stores hiring full time drivers would boost productivity and moral.
