Good company, co-workers, and benefits; corporate superiors are disconnected from Store level.

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

Pros

High pay (depending on position and experience), great and affordable benefits, good work atmosphere, and co-workers who are great.

Cons

Higher ups want sales minimums, even though you cannot control who comes into or calls the store; higher ups are VERY disconnected with the store level; employee retention is almost non-existent; and instead of transferring, they would rather let people go.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try working a few weeks at the Store level, listen to employees as opposed to what 'reports' say/show, don't tell employees that their job is on the line when it comes to sales (especially when they have no control over who walks in the door).

    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Job security for those willing to stick it out. Much potential for AAP to return to a fun place to work with the new President. Compensation good for top GMs and CPPs.

    Cons

    Growth has been slow and company direction has been erratic under the last few CEOs. AZ and ORLY have expanded at a much hirer rate, while growing sales. AAP has been so focused on the actions of store teams, it has ignored and missed several opportunities to actually get the right merchandise in it's stores.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce sales floor area. Inventory spins can't happen quick enough. Rapid access to Dorman Products are vital to DIFM. A basic, $5 a month Commercial Account should have some level of picing discount.
