    Pros

    People there are generally easy to get along with, like everywhere there is drama.
    But the work day is usually enjoyable.

    Cons

    Was recently bought out by Advanced Auto Parts, out discounts and benefits changed for the worst. Most of the employees are not happy with the turn of events. The company is about profit and making money, the turnover rate is some what high but then we sell cars parts and if you can read you can sell car parts.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers concerns and address them to the higher ups.
    Do not try to mask the store issues when the higher supervisors and VIPs visit.

    Pros

    I love working in the auto part industry. When I was a teenager I went to school for auto mechanics I even enjoy selling Auto Parts talking about vehicles and getting to be around those Houdini hold vehicles.

    Cons

    My job in Michigan which was Advanced Auto Parts common which is now combined with Carquest transferred me here I was supposed to be working as full-time I've been working for my company for almost 2 years and I'm still working hard time I'm not receiving enough hours and I can barely pay my rent now due to the fact I'm not working full-time I'm not receiving any benefits I get no holiday pay and no vacation.

    Advice to Management

    I think management should treat all employees Fair far as I would always make sure that my employees are taking care of and heavy and not do anything that I could as a manager in my power to make sure my employees were compensated for their hard work.
