Great company to work for, but they don't believe in helping customers

I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time for more than a year

Pros

I enjoyed the variety of customers that always came in. You meet so many new people and you make great connections with commercial customers and the staff of the store. Benefits are cool and not to mention the discount.

Cons

The discount is very strict and can only be used by immediate household. So no helping that buddy who has always helped you. You can get fired for trying to help customers who can't afford total cost of the parts or the labor to get them installed

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more lienient with team members and make sure that the GM in the store is properly trained and focused on the business.

    Pros

    Enjoy the industry and company has a good culture. With so many stores and a large corporate office, there are plenty of opportunity for career growth if you want to apply yourself and actively look for something to do

    Cons

    The company changes direction constantly. One of the big difference between this company and others is the number of times we change major initiatives. We seem to really have the flavor of the month and i think that slows down our execution at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work in the store more often and stick with consistent strategy and messaging

    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Teamwork in most stores, most stores have a good manager, make friends easily, has a family environment

    Cons

    Low pay for most starting even with automotive experience, raises are less than a dollar unless promoted, will be passed over for promotions even if you work hard as heck for the entire time you are there. Bosses expect more of you than they do, and dont expect your bosses to listen to any suggestions you have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your starting people better, give them more opportunities, benefits. Don't pass over people who show promise and stop giving the managers, assistant managers, and parts pros bonuses. the people who should get bonuses are the ones who do all the grunt work!
