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.

    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.
