    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
    Current Employee - Parts Sales Manager in Madison, WI

    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.

    Current Employee - Store Manager  in  Grover Beach, CA
    Current Employee - Store Manager in Grover Beach, CA

    Pros

    Working with different types of personalities on a daily basis, decent compensation as a store manager, good health benefits for full time employees, great customers(most of the time) and ability to move up further make AutoZone a good place to work.

    Cons

    50+ hours per week makes this a difficult place to work when you have a family, no benefits for part time employees, annual pay increase is mostly a joke(+/- .15 cents), constant up-selling is required, not a lot of training offered before actually working, no bonus for anyone below store manager and not a lot of recognition or communication from DM or above.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember who is selling your products and increasing your bottom line profits. Offer part time employees vacation/benefits and higher wages to reduce turnover. Less micro-management from DM and above, let me run my store like you hired me to do. Stop making such a big deal about up-selling so much, the customers and employees will thank you for it.
