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.

    Former Employee - Assistant Store Manager in Auburn, AL

    I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (more than an 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.
