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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Former Employee - Retail Parts Professional in Danville, IN

    I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Growth and pay raises were both offered based off of performances. Some hard work went unnoticed, but the majority of it was rewarded. Had to ask to get both a raise and promotion... This just shows someone actually wants it!

    Cons

    Schedule sucks! The days and hours you work change week to week due to their scheduling ways. No one has too much control of the schedule either because the company allocates a certain amount of hours per day per store.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you don't let your employees go unnoticed for too long. Reward them with a simple "good job" or a "thank you" before they grow bored with the work and leave you looking for another employee.
