    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good people to work with.

    Cons

    Unrealistic sales goals. No comission. The company lies about spifs (money an individual is told they will receive for each of a specific item sold) and management won't say anything to upper management about it. New policies that if sales goals aren't met you are wrote up (4 write ups and termination) this is even if you have no customers to sell to. False hopes of promotions and new positions. Pay for a full time Key Holder is 8.34/hr.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire everyone above District Leaders and start over.

    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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