    Pros

    Get to learn Automotive parts industry. Thats it. Nothing Positive about the company or position.
    Biggest waist of 4 years of my life.

    Cons

    After hired, Was told moto is " Culture of thrift" Wow! was that ever true.
    Store Manager works 50 hours a week and if an employee calls in,then you get to work that shift as well.
    Equipment/ computer software is ancient and breaks down all time,Then you get to spend hours talking to someone in Mexico to fix problem.
    The Daily / Weekly Reports. Holy Cow! all I can say,DUMB! You better not be on the bottom of them.
    Micro managed to the hilt.
    If you get a Commercial store then its all twice as bad.
    Honestly I could go on and on, The negative aspect of company goes on and on.
    And Bonuses are a joke.
    Promotion is not there, The DM's do not ever leave position in order for one to open up,When one does there are 20 to 30 store managers interviewing for it.

    Advice to Management

    If your coming from retail management as a outsider ,you will not like this company.Majority don't last.

  2. its been both good and rocky

    Pros

    nice working environment, they have a good management which sometimes they act friendly and ok but can get really scary sometimes

    Cons

    asking too much questions about why sales arent up and so on, but a district or store has tobe at bottom either way everyone cant be on top

    Advice to Management

    pay more to your employees

    Pros

    Reasonable with scheduling around school. They pay for ASE certification (P2). Ability to get 'bonuses' based on 'going the extra mile' or reporting theft.

    Cons

    Not much movement within the company unless you want to stay as store manager until a district job opens up. Overturn is ridiculous making it impossible to have a good team. It is hit and miss on good store managers. Scheduling is sporadic, so you never get used to a set schedule every week. Raises are a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Have a better understanding of who is a great store manager and who is performing poorly. There are store managers that need to have more accountability as far as their hours-worked or tasks-completed.

    Pros

    Good money, fun enviroment, able to meet different people in different occupations on the daily. Get discounts on parts for your own vehicle.

    Cons

    Customers expect you to be their mechanic, you have to spend your own money replacing uniforms because of customer parts, and battery acid. Have to work in all types of conditions like test/install batteries in the snow.

    Advice to Management

    Worker are under paid and overworked. Management needs to help the entire store instead of sitting in the back lounging around.

  9. AutoZone provides excellent parts and a decent price.

    Pros

    You can quickly gain experience in a multiple areas if you have the drive.

    Cons

    Management tends to be slow with promotions and raises are minimal. Staffing needs work.

    Advice to Management

    Work more on employee retention and better forecasting methods to determine better staffing.

    Pros

    Off on weekends, 8-5, being on the road very seldom that you're in the store a lot unless its slow.

    Cons

    Pay is kind of low and some benefits aren't ideal, very hard to work your way up in a store because most top sought after positions are taken by veterans in the company that have been there for years so you usually have to transfer from store to store to move up.

    Advice to Management

    Commercial drivers are basically the eyes, and ears for the commercial sales manager so compensate us a little more please.

  11. I enjoyed it for a while.

    Pros

    Interesting work. Generally friendly customers. I enjoy the teamwork aspect and how employees work well together with customers. Most employees are knowledgable and/or friendly.

    Cons

    Infrequent pay raises. Very few benefits for part time employees. Inconsistent policies and scheduling.

    Advice to Management

    I think that upper management should work closely with each store to determine storage/location/product placements. It is inconvenient to have to move products around all the time for seemingly no reason. They should also work on creating a consistent schedule for employees.
