I was extremely disappointed with how they dealt with promotions and salary increases.

I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (less than an year)

Pros

I had good coworkers. Mostly everyone was hardworking and helped one another out without complaint.

Cons

No flexibility in schedule, the manager did not put in requests for scheduled days off, even with 2 + weeks notice.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promotions shouldn't be given at no additional increase in salary

    I worked at Advance Auto Parts part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people I worked with were friendly and somewhat knowledgeable when considering auto parts. A lot of the regular customers were very friendly and understanding as well.

    Cons

    If you worked with a team member that had no idea what they were doing, they were making your life more miserable because you'd have to pick up their slack.

    Roughly 60% of the job is testing/installing batteries or checking OBD II codes. Company policy states we are not allowed to tell them what the OBD codes mean, but customers are never satisfied with just the code because they're expecting a free rundown of exactly what's wrong with their car. It boils down to a retail job offering free services that are heavily taken advantage of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A large majority of the store managers are very easy to work with. Power tripping seems to be prevalent with the aren't

    Pros

    Wonderful working conditions, low stress, easy to keep a job

    Cons

    Low pay, little to no raises, if you want to work full time prepare togive unlimited availibility

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It would be easier to hang on to your good employees if you tried to reward for years of service. A full time empoyees for 5 years should be able to break $10/hr but not at my store..
