    Pros

    Flexible hours, rewarding to help solve someone's issues, decent pay, lots of learning both for how a typical business is ran efficiently and automotive knowledge.

    Cons

    Very seasonal business flow, busy in summer dead in winter. Also customer flow varies throughout a day, small chunks of very busy followed by stints of no customers, sometimes for hours.

    Advice to Management

    Do not micromanage, lead by example and with positive reinforcement instead of reprimanding those who don't focus on KPIs.

    Pros

    A culture dedicated in its values, its people, and its customers...The AutoZone Pledge.

    Cons

    I think that the pay structure could possibly be better if out of the state of California.

    Advice to Management

    Training should be pivotal with a higher expense and allow the online in store training courses available at his/her home.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, low intensity. Friendly working environment, very educational. Effecient computer programs, protocols, and organization of products. Lots of benefits including employee discount

    Cons

    People /always/ come in to have you change their bulbs, batteries, and wipers 10 minutes to close in pouring rain.

    Advice to Management

    More clearly define each role in the organization and their responsibilites, and following up with morning employees to put away and finish their duties.

    Retail is always a tricky business to work in learning how to manage ones emotions and dealing with a roller coaster of customer emotions is never the same

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that you are bettering the people below you to ensure they are not only providing the best customer service but bettering themselfs
