    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere
    Helpful, cooperative co-workers
    They go out of their way to satisfy their customers. I've delivered parts and assistance to motorists who've broken down on the road. And gotten them on their way. THAT'S service!

    Cons

    Low pay
    Rude, arrogant customers (some people you just can't satisfy)
    The employee performance program used (IGNITE) tends to cause associates to avoid and "shy away" the customers that want only a few low priced items.

    Advice to Management

    Raise salaries at all levels. (come on, the company can afford it)

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Industry has potential for growth

    Cons

    Lost their values. No longer a special place to work as field management is not interested in what team thinks. This was great place to work with bright futures and had been lost. Turnover will have record highs in 2013.

    Advice to Management

    Find out what is really happening. not in surveys because they are hard against people.
