    Pros

    Discount on auto parts. Vacation time after 1 year for full time management.

    Cons

    Dismal pay, once a year pay raises that max out at .25 to .30 an hour increase. Rude customers who expect you to work on their vehicles. Upper management never has your back. Company values and pledge don't apply when it comes time to cut hours. Unless you are willing to relocate for no pay increase for a "possible" promotion, you will never move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees on the front line. Treat them with respect and it will be returned. Offer people higher starting wages and more than 25 hours a week to encourage hard working people to apply. To many people working there with no knowledge in the automotive field. Impove the training for them, the "training" we have no is a joke and just corporate b.s. Just because a couple stores in the district are having slow sales don't cut every other store. Seem to always have a store packed with no where near enough help because we have to keep numbers in line. Yet customers come 1st. Not true, numbers and money always trump customer service at AutoZone.

    Be more clear on the tasks you want done to your PSM's and don't chew out your bottom rung employees for not knowing.

    Lots of room to grow.

    Work-life balance is slightly skewed toward work. Mostly due to constant growth and finding the right person for jobs.

    Holiday work, although it is the norm in this industry.
