I worked at AutoZone part-time (more than an year)

Pros

The people there are some of the best in the field, but in car repair and also in part sales.

Cons

No real room to advance. Company employees spend years there without advancing much.

    I worked at AutoZone part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Usually great coworkers who communicate effectively.
    20 percent discount on most parts and goods.
    Great learning environment for getting your foot into the door for the automotive environment.
    Good knowledge base with coworkers.
    I used this job to hop into another automotive job that didn't revolve around selling parts. Happy about that.

    Cons

    Strict retention policy. 12 point system. 6 points for being more than an hour late on a weekend. Not great for anyone with attendance issues.
    Aggressive push to upsell or add-on to sale by the store manager, but zero Associate commission.
    Truck days are usually difficult. Lots of heavy lifting, sorting, and stocking. The day tends to start off strong, but usually thins out by the afternoon, leaving a handful of employees to put up the remaining pallets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower your standards on WITTGTJDR. CSRs are not paid commission so quit forcing them to upsale.

    Current Employee - Programmer in Memphis, TN

    I have been working at AutoZone full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I learned to work under pressure and to diagnose and solve issues in multiple platforms.
    Learned to work with diverse array of db and OS and languages.

    Management was relaxed and overall ok.

    Coworkers were mainly professional and easygoing.

    Good was having food service for a weekly fee,

    Cons

    Something that didnt shine was that there are not many activities organized in the company, not a single event to meet coworkers. No access to gym or to a common area to chill.
