    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love being part of a company that has taken such strides in transforming itself, both in culture and in business results. I work with a fantastic group of strategic, well-rounded individuals that make coming to work a pleasure every day.

    Cons

    It is not always easy for an 86-year old company to keep up with the ever-changing business technology landscape, but Advance is starting to innovate and doing what it needs to do now to remain a leader in the industry for its team members and customers.

    Advice to Management

    Always remember that your people are your best part.

    Pros

    If you're willing to put in the time and work, you really can advance in the company.

    Cons

    Advance just isn't a people focused company. They care about the job, but not the person who actually does the job. Their language has changed over the years to suggest this is changing, but their action don't reflect that change.

    Advice to Management

    Many business practices seem inefficient and much of the management techniques appear outdated. For a while I've been listening to my superiors tell me about their leadership training from corporate, and it's clear they're still figuring out how to lead people effectively. They seem to think Millennials are a different kind of person, like they don't just simply want to feel valued for the work they do.
