    Pros

    It's a steady paycheck and virtually impossible to get fired if you follow rules and show up on time.

    Pay isn't that great. Way too focused on selling related items. Horrible upper level management doesn't value employees or customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

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

    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.

    Current Employee - Parts Sales Manager in Knoxville, TN

    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)
