    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.

    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)

    Pros

    Great location
    Nice office with good views
    Fun, growing company with lots of opportunities
    Cafeteria and decent food in office!

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations/deadlines
    Little resources to complete projects
    Lack of communication at the top levels
    Culture of thrift is quite thrifty!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to show support of growth and stores, but remember what new companies are doing for employees- work from home, more vacation, and employee recognition are being offered at other companies. If you don't keep up, it will continue to be difficult finding the right talent.

    Pros

    At AutoZone customers come first , this is practiced from CEO all the way to the stores. benefits are good, good holidays and vacation plan.

    Cons

    a little short on recognition for some areas of the company and very heavy on other parts of the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognition is very important to employees, money is not the driving force to keeping employees at their best.

    I worked at AutoZone full-time

    Pros

    Ase certified, easy to learn automotive parts and plannograms

    Cons

    Some of the management think they are experts but have never worked on a car in their life. Just because you can regurgitate information does not mean you are an expert on automotive work.
