I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (More than 3 years)

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 Management

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

    I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time

    Pros

    It's a Job. Great Customers. Nice employees.

    Cons

    Paid for 40 hours a week, expected to work 50, but they'll squeeze more if they can. No support from district managers. Constant scheduling changes that come down after the schedule is made. Upper management does not want you to have a life outside this company.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair. Give general managers the resources they need to properly run a store. Allow managers to be managers and not salesmen. Teach upper management how to interact respectfully with other humans.
