    Advice to Management

    Treat every employee the same, never show favoritism it destroys the unity of a team.

    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Full-time, full benefits after 90 days, most employees are down-to-earth and hard-working.

    Cons

    High turnover, store is understaffed most of the time. Management is more concerned about running lean on hours than they are about providing the best customer service possible.

    Advice to Management

    If "Service is our best part", staff the stores with more than a skeleton crew so we can actually show the customers that service is REALLY our best part.

    Pros

    Most employees do their jobs.
    The GM will help you attain your goal if you do your job.
    The company is stable and you need not worry about the business closing.

    Cons

    Hours and days change almost weekly making it hard to plan anything.
    Hard to get 40 hours a week even at full-time.
    Be sure the work load is shared or you will be the one doing most of the work.

    Advice to Management

    Better control of how many employees and work hours/days.
