Pros

Get to work with really good people

Cons

Upper management is garbage. Required to perform auto repairs in the parking lot for customers with no compensation.

Advice to Management

Pay your employees what they're worth.

    Corporate office in Memphis ok, upward mobility difficult. The corporate office is dedicated to their 5K stores.

    Pros

    Good place to start a corporate job, to learn one type of corporate culture (they require you to shout a cheer and pledge before most meetings) Location of office in downtown Memphis on Mississippi River Free downtown parking At a certain grade level, benefits package is great--Bonus, 401K, stock options, etc. The corporate office is very dedicated to the retail stores, require "store dress" uniform day every Monday, otherwise business casual. No casual Fridays. There are many long-time AutoZoners, people who have been working there for 20-35 years, which can be a good thing and a bad thing. The corporate office really emphasizes employee recognition for a good job.

    Cons

    The internal depts are not integrated, don't use SAP, ERP, etc. to tie systems together. Systems are mostly home-grown and patched together. The internal depts act as silos, independently, so communication can be tough. There's a lot of "old-school" thinking. Upward mobility difficult, like to move senior management laterally to develop them but difficult to execute anything with constant movement Pay is below corporate averages for similar jobs in other places

    Advice to Management

    Lateral senior management moves only hurt the employees under them. If the expectation is to review, do gap analysis, develop plan, implement, and review, then give us that time to execute without changing senior management, because you inevitably have to start over with a new strategy each time. There should be a lot more collaboration among departments. The pay should reflect the job requirements. The company should upgrade their systems to catch up to the 21st century.

    Pros

    AutoZone will continue to grow and make tons of money. If you are bonus and stock option eligible, this is great. There is opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Wearing store uniforms on Mondays and other days. Company cheer. As you might expect from a car parts store, middle-management is full of good-ole-boys who manage by bullying instead of professional skills. AZ makes lots of money by not spending it, so don't expect modern equipment, benefits, or any perks.

    Advice to Management

    Professionals like to be treated like professionals instead of overpaid store employees.
