I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

decent benefits, company car (charged $51 every two weeks)

Cons

Weekly sales call requirement increased 25% within the past year. Have to make up for missed calls due to company mandated meetings and sick time. Too many reports, spreadsheets and conference calls take away from time in the field, end up working every evening to get it all done. Bonus plan has changed four times in less than 2 years.

    I entered the intern program with Advance during the summer of my Junior year in college. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who wants to be in an environment where the senior employees wish to see you succeed.

    Cons

    Pay was a bit low but the experience was well worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    teach your store managers that women will ultimately draw more customers than men, and treat them better too. Like look out for them with the small stuff!
