    I worked at AutoZone part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you make friends with your coworkers it can be a really fun work environment despite some entitled customers and managers but that's retail for you.

    Cons

    As I have stated in the title, the upper management could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of giving us trophy pins for doing our jobs, a good raise or bonus would be lovely. If you want more sales goals to be made...atleast make a system where you guys track who sells the most and reward them for doing so with money, food, etc. Anything is better than those stupid pins. Make your employees feel happy to work for you and sales will go up tenfold.

    I have been working at AutoZone full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Small discount on cheap parts.

    Cons

    They'll let anyone into management; that being said management is terrible. Customers can be horribly rude and most the time don't know what they drive. Most of the newer staff members tend to be lazy and know nothing about cars. Weather means nothing to management, so be prepared to install a battery in rain/storms.

    Advice to Management

    Stop putting useless managers into high volume stores. Stop hiring creep managers that make the female employees squirm. Stop allowing store managers to leave early almost everyday and get paid that cushy salary while they leave.

    Pros

    Fun environment, good feeling of satisfaction when customers leave happy. Good training, not thrown to the wolves. My manager at least is very thorough, patient, yet firm.

    Cons

    Poor pay. Obviously being retail you have some rude customers to say the least. Mostly the pay is the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more

    Co doesn't care about employees or customers. Demands dollars of work and pays pennies. Incompetent management.
