    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Pay, ability to develop future leaders, great management experience and company mobility. Growing company with opportunity to move around. Benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Too many tasks, can not run your building, unrealistic targets based on a computer model along with metrics for every little thing, micro managed, field staff make up own rules even when home office says they can't hold you to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Home office needs to convey their policies better to the field and know what their staff is doing. They need to all get on the same page as it makes it very difficult for the GMs to run their stores, Do more work finding out the demographics of areas to learn the socioeconomic conditions in the areas and set your targets to those not to some computer program that no one can figure out how it breaks down the goals set by it. Set up a consistent field training system for new managers besides the one at home office. Over all it is a good company but the cons are starting to out weigh the pros if they are not careful it will get worse.
