The only pros were the people I worked with were fun to be around.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Advance is the people. The employees truly care about helping customers. Many of my employees have been with the company for over 10 years. They care about their jobs and want to provide excellent service.

    Cons

    The pay is very low at the management level. My income qualifies my children for state aid, and I've been with Advance for over 20 years.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries for store managers. Hire more parts pros so that the managers don't need to work 65+hours a week on salary.

    Pros

    I loved my immediate coworkers, and you will definitely learn a lot. Getting 20% off of car parts helps out when you need to fix your own ride too.

    Cons

    Upper management is pretty much worthless, and your pay is based off of how much product you sell, so you are pressured to push extra stuff onto customers, which I never liked doing.

    Advice to Management

    Let store managers write their own schedule - you can't run a store with only 2 people on a shift at any given time, regardless of what your numbers say.
