Chaos in the workplace at all times

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Every time you get to know and familiarize yourself with one way of doing things corporate comes in and switches everything the opposite way. Don't ever get used to the way of doing things.

    Pros

    They have good health benefits , BCBS. Most stores have a feeling of family and comraderie that make it a great place to be.

    Cons

    Too many things are "important" and have to be done, to the point that you hardly have time to take care of our customers. We need to dial back on some of the initiatives or the processes that go with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come spend some time in the stores and see what its really like. Work side by side with the team for a week or two and then look our pocesses and see what needs your attention the most.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, okay pay, incentives to sell but not competitive as in a commission type job. Work isn't terribly labor intensive, and with automotive knowledge, helping customers is a breeze. There's plenty of tools and machinery to perform tasks needed all around the store. They allow you to go above and beyond helping a customer with their vehicle if you feel comfortable and confident doing so. Multi-tasking abilities are a must. Answering phone calls and helping customers while making sure deliveries (if you're also a driver) are being made accurately and on time all at once is something that happens commonly.

    Cons

    Pay could be better especially for knowledge required to work there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Be understanding that some days, goals just aren't' gonna be met.
