I worked at Advance Auto Parts part-time (less than an year)

Pros

The managers were devoted to creating the best work environment possible. They were very flexible with scheduling, and went above and beyond to teach employees the ropes.

Cons

A steep learning curve for someone outside of the automotive industry. Many "tests" that were required to be done on personal, non-scheduled time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep the customers and employees first, always strive to create a positive and respectful work environment.
