Pros

Most employees do their jobs.
The GM will help you attain your goal if you do your job.
The company is stable and you need not worry about the business closing.

Cons

Hours and days change almost weekly making it hard to plan anything.
Hard to get 40 hours a week even at full-time.
Be sure the work load is shared or you will be the one doing most of the work.

Advice to Management

Better control of how many employees and work hours/days.

    Pros

    discount on autoparts networking with people for other things other than autoparts

    Cons

    everything that isnt a pro! no advancement even if you walk in the door with more than 15 yrs experience as a manager at other autopart stores still just a counter person. apply to other locations and they still rather recruite outside of the company. if your a gm you constantly walk on eggshells because you cant get everthing done with the hours given. low pay. now trying to weed out everyone making 9 dollars or better. blurring the lines between autoparts sales and car repair(should not be installing batteries obd testing and the like) here in the dc md va area most gms last 3yrs tops before there fired step down or quit because of unrealalistic expectations from corporate. sell all the extra merchandise that peope dont need so the can bring in back on the slow days and than getting chastize for all the returns.
    They try to make the employees install batteries, test parts etc when no one has any certification to do any of this. Then if a problem occurs, you are at fault. Customers are given the impression that employees can diagnose the problems with their cars. Again no one has automotive training. Rather we are sales people of auto parts period. autozone advance about the same so if you have any parts knowledge go to a dealership where its a profession or a smaller operation. these companies do not respect the employee. revolving door minimum wage employment.

    Advice to Management

    Suggest to DMs that your employees not be required to do mechanic work that they have no training to perform. sell parts promote from within and stop stripping employees of human dignity just becuse they need a job.

    Pros

    20% discount on auto parts

    Cons

    Advance allows abuse and violence to occur in it's stores. Corporate sides with the violent manager.

    Advice to Management

    When multiple complaints from different employees are received regarding abuse or violence in the work place, HR should not dismiss these claims because the General Manager of a store tells them it is just a disgruntled employee. Sexual harassment and death threats made within the store are serious violations but instead corporate ignores them and allows it to continue to happen.
