I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good benefits, career opportunities and career growth. Nice clean, modern stores. Excellent opportunity to interact with customers.

Cons

General Managers are more micromanaged now than in years past. General Managers now have a set schedule and must get DM approval for exceptions. Example if a General Manager wants to open on Friday instead of closing approval of the District Manager is required. That wasn't required in the past.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember "the best part is our people". Let the General Managers have the flexibility needed to run the stores.

    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts part-time (more than an year)

    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.
