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.

    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts

    Pros

    Flexibility, laid back management, things get done eventually but it's not a hard job

    Cons

    Getting written up for stupid things is like going to the principals office, upper management talks to you like your a child, pay is embarrassing. Sales associates are trusted with nothing everything is locked down for manager approval.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect.
