I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (More than a year)

Pros

This employer, unlike many others, actually has a very good employee discount program with up to 30% off many items that are regularly needed.

Cons

The leadership of each location is key, but it seems as if leadership ability, people skills, and knowlege of automotive needs take a back seat to the "Good ol' boy" (Or Gal) tradition.

Advice to Management

Promote from within based on actual ability to service customers and lead people.

    I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing that I can think of.

    Cons

    The hours you have to fight for 40 hours. Management does not know what they are doing. People get paid barely the minimum on this economy.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and fire yourselves.

    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Customers I deal with are the best

    Cons

    No raises. Been 3 years now. And if your in management it is really bad. More and more paperwork and do more. With no more pay. No advancement ops either. I use to love it but now its one of those jobs I dread. They don't take care of the employees like they say. Very disappointing

    Advice to Management

    Fight harder for lower level management
