Decently run, poorly supervised.

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

Pros

Not an overtly complicated system, lots of room to shift stores, and a decently quick ability to climb the ladder position wise.

Cons

Pay climbing based on performance seems incredibly rare, and lots of fluff like ignite and other team member data. It only serves to show who's lazy/less salesmanly, and doing well warrants no reward beyond bragging rights.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look to secure knowledgeable workers, perhaps more in depth testing (I.E. not just jump through hoop tests) to put entry or lower level workers on a track to a position related to actual automotive knowledge, and a pay grade that would reflect and encourage such.

    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay is OK. Team members can make your job easier. Customers are usually nice.

    Cons

    Every position above manager acts like they are better than you. They do not want to hear any complaints. Just do it. It started off at 50 hours with 1 hour lunch you don't clock out for, now you have to clock out. This added 5 hours to my week without extra pay. I do not get to spend any time with family. My schedule is not flexible. I have to work weekends and every Monday and Friday.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not treat managers of good stores the same as mangers of under performers. Give managers more time with their families. At least every Sunday off.
