I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

I like helping people find solutions to problems with their car. Company has some of the best parts brands and the ability to get whatever parts my customer needs. I like the people I work with and local division management are easy to work with.

Cons

Reduced payroll make it difficult to staff the store with enough employees. Salaried managers are expected to take up the slack.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give stored adequate resources to meet corporate goals and expectations.

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

    Pros

    The hourly rate was pretty good, but only because I negotiated it. Alot of the coworkers were really nice, and I enjoyed working with them.

    Cons

    The management was absolutely the worst; they talked down to you and teated you like an idiot ! I had a problem with the management that was race related, and tried to contact H.R. at the home office, but they refused to do anything about it!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you have people that are knowledgeable and can bring in the sales, treat them well ! When someone does something good acknowledge it instead of using the moment to bring up something petty!

    Pros

    Pretty good Pay. and benefits

    Cons

    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.
