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

    Pros

    Down to earth managers. Laid back. Very flexible around my life. These guys have all been funny as hell AND serious about their business, just like I am!

    Cons

    NONE! (Wish they gave me a bigger car. But it's not their fault that I'm fat. Haha) I really can't complain because they gave me a laptop and phone for my position too. Just wish I had a truck or SUV.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up they great work with staffing!

    I worked at Autopart International full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pros...cept for some of the good co workers that need to get out of there

    Cons

    Horrible pay...very dirty/dusty place....management needs a reality check. No respect and they treat the wharehouse workers like peasants. multi millions dollar company that only pays corp. Supervisors...not wharehouse workers

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to get on the floor and get in touch an listen to the needs and wants from the real bloodline in there...(the real workers...wharehouse workers)...you know who i am! And i tried to help you fix the problem, but i guess theres no breaking through a no respect filled cranium.

    I worked at Autopart International full-time

    Pros

    None. You WILL Definitely be micromanaged and "talked down" too...there is also a "fine line" between constructive critcism and behaviors and words intended to intimidate an employee..the manager crossed this line on day 2 and 3.

    Cons

    Managers- there is a fine line between constructive criticism and condescending words to an employee meant to undermine the employee and their intelligence.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat people...If you lack patience to supervise and teach employees, do yourself a favor and find another job....don't abuse people, especially employees that likely have better judgment skills and more life experience than you...Many employees are educated or have served in combat zones(veterans)

    I worked at Autopart International (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you a don't mind working a lot of hours and not having quality time this is the place for you. I made more money that I ever did at API but I had to work a lot of hours and with minimal staff. Just be prepared to work.

    Cons

    Working a lot of hours is a given. No matter how you perform they always want more. I took over as a Store manager and double my store sales in 2 years. Upper Management was never satisfied. If we did 300k a period they wanted 400k a period. Also they like to move you around. I've seen them move managers and countermen 50 plus miles away. For being owned by a bigger company like Advance Auto Parts the benefits could be better and cheaper.

    Advice to Management

    API was Great when I first started. This was just after they Advance purchased the company. Every year Upper Management would get worse and worse as far as what they expected from the store team. The would always say that we are now a publically traded company and more was expected. I did very well but still ended up leaving and taking less money. I wasn't the only one. Over the past 3 years I watched long time managers leave time and time again. A lot of the managers just feel like a number and not a person. This has gotten worse since Advance took over Worldpac and CARQUEST. API had and still has a lot f great employees. Find a way to keep them in house.

    Pros

    Great hours for retail/wholesale business. Very good starting pay. Good incentive bonus plan and benefits.

    Cons

    It is a 1 to 2 person show, running the store. Besides delivering, you are responsible throughout the days. Over expectation for logging customer service calls and visits. Too busy during the day and would need to work late to complete daily tasks. No forgiveness for being sick or losing any time at all.
