Pros

Working a field that is surving the economic crunch.

Cons

Used to be a great company to work for, but like many retailers they are squeezing every dime for profit and have making bonuses and merit increases too tough. Plus you throw in several new restrictions and micro-management and team morale is at a all time low.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Avoid unless you enjoy walking a tight rope and having someone over your shoulder second guessing your every move for profitability.

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

    Pros

    Consistent paycheck, but little else

    Cons

    Have worked for company for 5 years and changes in the past year have ruined the company. We as managers were once told to "run it like you own it." Now it is put a check in the box and this is when you will work, without flexibility. Now working 55 hours per week, they violate their own handbook and discriminate against those who are faithful to any religion. Was a good place to work, is no longer.

    Advancement inside of the company is a joke, You are made promises and carrots are waived on sticks until you bite then they are jerked away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask your managers how to fix the issues, the company has a great team of store managers that are 100% capable of fixing the problems, if they cared. But they will never care about the company until it cares about them first.
