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

I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (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

    Pros

    Career growth is solid, but you must put forth the effort.
    Excellent perks at upper levels, maybe too many in some cases.

    Cons

    Too top heavy in management.
    Commercial field teams not completely sales driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at the eeffects of what happens with being top heavy to what teams in the field need.
