Its a good job,but hard to support family on 8.27 an hour.

Current Employee - Sales Associate in Grafton, WV
Current Employee - Sales Associate in Grafton, WV

I have been working at Advance Auto Parts part-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Not a hard job,people are nice.Customers are very nice.

Cons

One word ,management.The manager is always on your back,steals sales from you to make his numbers high.Does not know how to manage.Maybe corp needs to concentrate on there managers and pay there people better.You cant support a family on 8.00 an hour,at 12 hours a week.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do more than just show up,work with the employees.And please dont believe everything that a store manager tells you.Its not just him making you money ,but the ones that are out doing the actual work.

    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.
