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 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.
