I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The compensation can and will be very good providing the efforts are put in.

Cons

Upper management will not be consistent with staffing issues. Primarily with supporting terminations for violating company policies, also with hiring policy procedures.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Document DM instructions.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    60-80 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 ManagementAdvice

    Advance 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.
