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.

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

    Pros

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

    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.
