    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Full-time, full benefits after 90 days, most employees are down-to-earth and hard-working.

    Cons

    High turnover, store is understaffed most of the time. Management is more concerned about running lean on hours than they are about providing the best customer service possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If "Service is our best part", staff the stores with more than a skeleton crew so we can actually show the customers that service is REALLY our best part.

    Interview Details

    The application on the website was long but fairly easy. The interview was short, more conversational and they wanted to know my availability more and after a drug test I was hired on the spot.
