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

Pros

Advance offers good pay, decent benefits, and quality products to sell

Cons

tenured associates openly hostile to new hires. Very "clicky". Upper Management unwilling to
listen to legitimate concerns.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

"Servant Leadership" If something you lure in quality people by saying it is a company mantra,
 You should teach ALL UPPER LEVEL Management positions what it actually means,
and live by it.

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

    Pros

    There aren't any pros for working for this company.

    Cons

    They over work and under pay their employees, they insurance carrier is one of the most expensive and have high co-pays. Management is expected to have the roll as landscaper, painter, and plummer. District Management can never compliment on a job well done. But go looking for issues in a green store just to have something on paper. There inventory processes are the worst in the industry, which management is accountable. I could keep going on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people like people not numbers.
