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

    Pros

    Possible bonus for members of management

    Cons

    They do not follow the company values, in particular, "Cares about people" they care about money and making more of it! I cannot tell you how many times I have had to tell my employees as they are walking out the door we have to work mandatory overtime the next day. These are people with children that have to get babysitters, or that have families, or plans. 3rd shift gets the brunt of it! Upper management is extremely secretive and tend to be bullies!

    Advice to Management

    Practice the company values! Be honest with us and have true communication!

    They give you a company car

    Cons

    Promotions and territories are not based on merit they are based on the "good ol boy" system.

    Advice to Management

    Don't take stores that are doing well away from a TSM to give them to your friend and give the TSM stores that are failing. Also don't use the actions of a subordinate against another employee in order to try and demote them.
