    Former Employee - Entry Level Store Manager in South Florida, FL

    I worked at AutoZone full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has good corporate culture and some very dedicated workers at all levels. Some top regions like New York and California provide a great work experience. Autozone has some of the best software and testing equipment greatly simplifying the cumbersome parts business. Decent benefits and one of the best stock purchase programs I have seen in the auto biz.

    Cons

    Middle management often rude and unreasonable. Hr makes it extremely difficult to fire problem staff members. Many stores in unsafe locations with outdated security systems. 50+ hour work week for store managers. Stores are often understaffed, especially stores with commercial program. The hours and the pressure don't justify the low pay. Competitors like an nearby walmart can decimate your chances of earning a bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stores need more staff to be able to perform the tasks required. The commercial programs are the most lacking in staff. This results in competitors producing faster delivery times and customers stop using the program. Update the security systems even in stores that haven"t been robbed recently. Give store managers more control over who they can hire and fire, it only takes a few bad eggs to poison the attitude of a whole store.

    Pros

    learning to do inventory and learning about car parts

    Cons

    long hours, terrible pay, disrespectful management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    when you have traveled for a company to many different locations and stayed loyal to a company for over 3 years you should have the ability to move up.

    Stop giving less than 25 cent raises

    Pros

    Great Culture and a decent company. If you love Sales and customer satisfaction then you will love this place.

    Cons

    Open way too late. I understand some people need help past certain hours, but shops usually close at 1730. Some Autozoners Close and open the store giving them little time for their personal lives. I work to live, I don't live to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    District managers need to be in stores more and actually do footwork. They expect to much at times, it's quite insane.

    You can learn a lot and move up if you decide that's what you want to do.

    Some times you have to cover and help multiple stores and don't get any pats on the back.

    Pros

    Very structured in the way things are done. Company updates and information seems to be well-communicated and available, at least at a store level.

    Cons

    While overall employee training is better than when compared to other companies I've worked for, I think more hours need to be devoted to one-on-one training, rather than the "learn as you go" approach.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more consistency in the computer systems. i.e., "green screen", Z-net, etc. Things need to be more intuitive.
