Former Employee - Manager in Memphis, TN
Former Employee - Manager in Memphis, TN

I worked at AutoZone full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I can only share from my experience at the Store Support Center...paid holidays, great location downtown, free parking, ability to park for free during special downtown events (plays, NBA games, etc.), decent pay for white-collars

Cons

Pieced together/outdated infrastructure, too many long-term AutoZoners that don't embrace change, culture and values are lip-service only, not enough diversity in the ranks (mostly middle-age, affluent, white males), benefits are super expensive for store AutoZoners, no work/life balance, managers who aren't bullies by nature tend to leave within 3 - 4 years, ridiculous cheer you are made to do at every meeting

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop thinking like the millionaires that you are and put the good of your front-line and mid-level AutoZoners first, share company profits instead of pushing people to do more with a lot less, recognize that your business model is set up to fail: adding more stores to a crumbling infrastructure where AutoZoners feel undervalued is a recipe for disaster

    Don't kid yourself. It's a job, keep your head down and sell the goop to the masses.

    Current Employee - Parts Sales Manager in Madison, WI

    I have been working at AutoZone full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good co-workers, discount on parts, meet people with similar interests.

    Cons

    Obsolete management philosophy, weak information systems, ethics are discouraged. Management believes in shaming employees in order to drive increased sales of damaging "wittdjr" items.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Successful companies find ways to improve communication internally and externally. A recent survey of employees was completed but where is the result? Open the channels of communication and for God's Sake stop pushing those stupid packets! Most of them damage the parts they are used on and short out electrical devices. Customers are not as stupid as you think they are, they have the internet, they have other options. How many fuel pump damage lawsuits are resulting from pushing "injector cleaners" on people.
