Rewarding pay, but unprofessional upper management.

General Manager (Former Employee)
Marshfield, WI

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

ProsPay is great. Helping people solve there automotive issues. Sense of ownership until the last 2 mo.

Cons60-80 Hour weeks. Most store managers have lost the ability to manage their stores due to new district manager. Most stores have been instructed to reduce pay of employes, even store that are running a 30% sales gain over past years. Bonus program has been made into a joke.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdvance needs more Dm's and Rvp's that have actually picked up a wrench professionally,and know how a shop runs. The auto industry in not your typical retail field and until you realize it you will always be a second call after NAPA or Car-quest.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
