    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts part-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    You get to help people and it is a fun place to work at times.

    Cons

    You only get raises if your STORE meets it's goal, which they make a certain percentage over what you got the previous year. . its all or nothing. so in most cases its very unrewarding. They keep changing your goals - Now you have to do so many sales per hour and your sales have to be above a certain average $ amount that they give you. Its all about getting money in their pocket.

    Outdated computer systems .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some appreciation to your workers.

    Pros

    The best part is the people you work with in the store. The company was decent to work for when I started three years ago... since then this company is not worth a dime.

    Cons

    People who make the rules have no idea what is going on in the actual stores and yet are trying to run the place. Schedule and everything is preprogrammed. The General Manager position is pointless everything is laid out by the people in the office. Pre set schedule, no felxiblity, no overtime, and no pay raises even though they require you to do more. The company is chasing pennies instead of dollars. At the rate this company is going they are going to run off all of their good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on keeping your employees at the store level happy. You are losing good employees and are hiring unqualified people to fill there position. You might save a few bucks upfront but a few months down the road you are going to be regretting these decisions. Good luck not running yourselves into the ground.
