    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time for more than a 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.

    Mixed messages from top leadership down. Too many changes and not enough qualified people work there including district.

    I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good environment. Some good people, very good products for sale.

    Cons

    Massive fluctuations in hours given to run stores, too much micro management and never able to keep good help due to low pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hands off from store managers and see what is actually happening not just reading reports and making decisions.
