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.

    I love my job because of my coworkers, but it isn't a living wage by any means.

    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    As a mobile parts professional, I get paid to drive around and deliver parts to various commercial customers. I love driving, listening to music, and making new friends with the mechanics and service writers. I get along with all of my coworkers and morale is high. Part time employees are eligible for benefits and employees receive a 20% discount on parts.

    Cons

    The pay is dismal. $8 an hour with 20 guaranteed hours per week for a part time employee. There's a high turnover rate and no one seems to be able to attain full time status. No bonuses given to drivers, aside from the occasional free lunch. After three months I expected a review and a raise only to be told that our store was skipped this year when it came to raises. "They're given out every March, so we're obviously not getting them this year. And if you get one next year it'll likely only be ten cents or so." I was told to hope for a federal minimum wage increase instead.

    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.
