Former Employee - General Manager in Baltimore, MD

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

Pros

Pay for management and above is very good, You get to meet and work with some good people and develop some great relationships.

Cons

They change course too often, have become very task oriented and in my opinion lost focus. I was spending less time working with customers and more time imputing data and working towards inventory goals, my customers were moved down a notch. Inventory accuracy is important, but when the customer feels neglected it makes no difference.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have hired some good people to manage the stores, let them do it.
