    Pros

    Advance Auto parts is a great place to meet people and create connections. Part time employees are great to work with.

    Cons

    The management style is terrible not only in this store but from the corporate level as well. General and Assistant Managers aren't always the best people for the job and have done more kissing of the behind then anything else. The computer system is downright terrible. Pay is subpar. The discount they give you is the same discount they give online customers. They expect you to sell additional items with little to no incentive. Overall a terrible and greedy company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees better and upgrade your systems. Otherwise much time will be lost with turnover and rehiring.

    Pros

    A good place to get your feet wet in the industry but, unless you are one of the "chosen" ones, not a career...

    Cons

    Less than stellar compensation for a very time demanding job. It is mostly rudimentary work and all you have to do is follow the "rules" and you will fit in just fine

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider improving your on boarding and job specific training. Also, show some respect to your employees and give them the tools they need to build the business and the hours and staff to properly run the stores.
