    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's good practice and experience to work with people and share knowledge over the automotive world. People know me at my store and will come only when I work so they can talk and ask questions. Nobody knows it all. Everyday we learn and strive towards more skills. If you are good with people, you'll love advance auto parts.

    Cons

    Depending on the location of where you are you will have the type of people that you will not be able to make them happy. You can save them $100s and they'll still complain.

    Advice to Management

    My store management is perfect and easy to work with. Some managers may be less proactive and committed but that's when things are brought up to their attention and things are taken care of.
