    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts part-time

    Pros

    As a college student, who has worked in the automotive aftermarket since high school, it is a decent place to keep up to speed on the business. Generally work around my school schedule, and are lenient with conflicts. I am an engineering student, at the senior level, so I have lots of project meetings to attend.

    Rewarding to help people in need

    The pay is ok, but it has stalled after 5 years, because I am at max for my position without the ability to move up in position.

    Cons

    Constantly short staffed

    The ignite system is a joke, it is a good way to get rid of very good employees. Worse yet, because of that, it has promoted the hiring of ill-qualified candidates.

    Ignite has also made it more stressful for employees who can't control everything. For instance, if I originally sold a remanufactured caliper, and it locks up, the return is taken out of my numbers. Rental tools being taken out of your sales figures is a joke as well.

    The district leaders, very seldom IF EVER, have a clue about the "front lines" of working in a store.

    As en engineer I have to understand how P&L works, it blows me away how many store level, upper level management members are lost in that subject.

    The overall hiring process now days is a joke. I work next to people who absolutely have no idea about the parts business, or vehicles in general.

    I have been with the company for 5+ years now, and did not get my "five year appreciation" plaque I had been looking forward to. Doesn't sound like much, but it meant something to me to hang that on my wall. I never got it, and WONT be getting it either because I was put in the system as "seasonal", despite working nearly full-time for five years (35+ hours/week). How is it a company this large doesn't keep up with hours worked?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company needs better hiring practices

    You're missing out on people that could do wonders for this company, by not paying them enough or by overworking them (short staffing).
