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

    Pros

    Friendly (in my case) team
    new things to learn
    helping customers with issues
    Part time health care and other benefits.

    Cons

    Did more than just what my position was classified as, no problem but was not compensated accordingly.
    Asked for reviews on performance, was told they are yearly.
    Seniority is priority full time, not quick learner or knowledgeable individuals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider your team members personalities and skill sets, overall.
    Allow for growth, and I do not mean your individual stores wallet.

    I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    After giving all a person can give. After almost losing relationship with family. There are no PROS to working for this company. Retail is not easy. This company is the " armpit of retail".

    Cons

    Excessive work loads for employees due to inability to actually schedule right amount of staff for needed times of day. No ability to have a family life. No sequential days off. Work minimum of 50 hours for 40 hours pay. Corporate does the scheduling per previous years sales. Warranties not honored to customers without receipt. Many warranties lost in the system bringing customer service issues. Lots of backstabbing throughout entire organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow core values that are preached. Do not instill coaching and mentoring to management and treat management completely opposite. Practice what is preached.
