    I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I was a GM and the pay was decent enough for the amount of physical work that had to be done.

    Cons

    Corporate has no problem letting you know that there's a million other people out there willing to do your job for less. Corporate will always take the side of the customer if they happen to call in, regardless of how much you helped them or what they were trying to get.

    Advice to Management

    Have DL's that actually have enough time to visit stores and not threaten you over email or occasional phone calls. WAY too many out of store meetings. One or two a week in my division, two hour round trip for me so the DL doesn't have too drive too far. And if you want the GM to run the store, you shouldn't make their sales goal the highest, yet still expect all the mountains of non sales related work to be done.

    Pros

    The only pro that the company would provide you is that they won't lay you off if you perform your duties. There's always a position open if you know the right person or if you happen to come in at the right time.

    Cons

    Depending on your manager, there is a lot of favoritism and fraternizing going on within the company. Advancements within the company are solely based upon this factor even for veteran team members who have been there for longer than new hires.

    Advice to Management

    Look at your employees a little bit more and realize they're part of your team. Without them, your store would be nothing.
