    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Easy job, everything is really common sense, get to know people with the hook ups. It's hard to get fired if you do everything right.

    Cons

    You have to know people in order to move up. A lot of favoritism in advance auto parts, you have to be up the DMs a** in order to get a promotion. This company really is about who you know, not what you know.

    Advice to Management

    Better training, as a manager and as person. Personal flaws intervene.

    Pros

    Gives you the opportunity to interact with knowledgeable car service shops and develop a better understanding of the automotive service and parts industry, while also being able to help others. Commercial customer base gets to be very handy and friendly.

    Cons

    Many other employees have little knowledge of field and are paid the same as one with years of experience.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to become more aware of automotive systems. Utilize a point of sale system that is easy to use.

    Pros

    Can be fun if the co-workers are nice people. Not too hard of a job, learn a lot about cars.

    Cons

    Can get very boring, mostly do the same things day in and day out. Pay isnt anything special

    Advice to Management

    Not much too change, but if there is a way to make the job less boring that would be awesome.

    Pros

    Big company with the ability to not just advance in position but relocate across the country. Good benefits and pay also goes a long way.

    Cons

    Just as in any big company, there are bosses and there are leaders and this company has its share of both.

    Pros

    very supportive upper management that wants to see internal growth within the company. with that being said growth is still in the beginning stages on the west coast.

    Cons

    Nothing negative that I can say about Advance other than things that they can not control such as the amount of time it takes to convert the CQ stores into Advance stores. The company is going to experience great growth in the upcoming years and I'm excited that I'm going to be part of it.

    Advice to Management

    the most important thing as a company we can do is retain and develop our teammates if as a company we can continue to do that we will continue to be the best after market part supplier in the industry.
