Current Employee - Commercial Account Manager in Norfolk, VA
Current Employee - Commercial Account Manager in Norfolk, VA

I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (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.

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Being able to help people solve problems.

    Cons

    No time with family, must be a puppet, no say in how to run a store, changes daily, MICROMANAGED every minute of the day. After 14 long years I was let go for something someone else did and I was not aware of it. Often belittled by DL and they say they will back you that is a joke they back the customer period and will dog you out in a second!!!! The store does the work and everyone else above them reaps all the rewards will little or no effort!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back to the basics and really start caring more about your people and less about how to line your pockets and the stock holders pockets. If you treat the people at the store good then they will do whatever you want them to. If you want to pay minimum wage then you will get minimum wage work and you are asking for way to much and to many changes everyday! GET BACK to Basics like selling car parts!
