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

    Pros

    I am a full time college student, and the manager has been flexible with hours to accommodate study and exam dates.

    Cons

    Some times there is no break for lunch, so must bring food to work before clocking in.
    Manager is looking for smart college student that are mechanically inclined. So some do not get past the first interview because of limited experience with cars.

    Pros

    Fellow emplyees, location of store

    Cons

    Here is what is most important to upper management....first and most important are the STOCK HOLDERS...second are commercial accounts, third are the store customers and last are the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Staff the stores correctly and stop appeasing the stock holders at the employees expense.

    Pros

    Good working relationship with my peers. Good schedule and freedom to make decisions. Company car is furnished. Good benefits. The company make smart business decisions.

    Cons

    Limited support from the regional staff. The stress level is very high and the expectations are sometimes out of touch with reality. Everything is viewed as an excuse even when in some cases it's a viable reason

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate the commitment your team makes

    Pros

    I am part of a team that wins together, and also sometimes fails together. But we are a team. In those rare instances that we do fail, we pick each other up. When we win, it is evenly distributed to every member. And we have have no problem letting the good feeling of winning have a big effect on us. Hard work is rewarded (and swiftly). As long as you fulfill your part of the bargain by giving 100% towards the job that has been designed for you, it takes no time at all for supervisors and managers of many different levels to fulfill their part of the bargain by giving you the respect you deserve, and the opportunities that are available. I applied here with the intention of having this job be a bridge into whatever I was going to do next. I totally underestimated the career caliber potential that AutoZone affords. That bridge has been forgotten. I am not going anywhere. I am all in.

    Cons

    I guess the one minor thing that comes to mind is the overflowing of the store's staff. I suppose I can only talk about my own personal location, also do not know if this is a widespread regular practice. I am definitely for job opportunities for every person willing to work hard. However, hiring too many people can have a negative impact on those that are already there working hard and remaining loyal. Hours can get sparse for someone who has paid their dues and deserves more.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to my own management team (which I have recently become apart of in less than 2 years with the company) would be to keep it up. Stay who you are now. The management in my neck of the woods is involved, approachable, and right alongside every employee of every level Ina daily basis in order to reach our goals. This is one of the things I love the most about my job. I am a people person. I love to work hard with my head held high while remaining humble in order to inspire others... And to continue to be an inspiration to myself.

    I worked at AutoZone (More than a year)

    Pros

    A great place for retail managers that like to sell products for do-it- yourselfers (work on their own cars) They make 50k annually.

    Cons

    there are no instruction manuals for servicing the customers at checkout. If you do well, you get a

    10cent per hour raise annually,unless you are a manager. The average employee lasts 6 months.

    they make 9.50/hr and work an average of 25 hours per week. A hard place to work.
