          Disapproves of CEO

          I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          Store managers were pretty easy to work for and get along with. A lot of opportunity to learn about car parts and how cars work from management, other employees and online training. Fun and easygoing atmosphere most of the time. Employee discount.

          Cons

          Low pay and no benefits. Occasional prolonged exposure to the elements (e.g., sun/heat, snow/cold, wind, and rain). Some customers feel entitled and treat employees with blatant disrespect. Not a lot of room for advancement. No annual or merit-based raises. Male-dominated industry leads to stores becoming boys clubs and less welcoming/accepting of female employees.

          Advice to Management

          Take better care of the “little guys” that help to make your company successful.
