Negative Outlook

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

Pros

We HAD a good, fun core, all but 2 are gone now.
My accounts were great and the only reason I went to work everyday.

Cons

Upper management is clueless about its personnel, except for its favorites. They need to realize sometimes there's more to business than the bottom line.

Advice to Management

Its nice to see my accounts had my back when management didn't.

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

    Pros

    Pay is great. Helping people solve there automotive issues. Sense of ownership until the last 2 mo.

    Cons

    60-80 Hour weeks. Most store managers have lost the ability to manage their stores due to new district manager. Most stores have been instructed to reduce pay of employes, even store that are running a 30% sales gain over past years. Bonus program has been made into a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Advance needs more Dm's and Rvp's that have actually picked up a wrench professionally,and know how a shop runs. The auto industry in not your typical retail field and until you realize it you will always be a second call after NAPA or Car-quest.

    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, Helping customers, availability of parts for employees. Met some good mechanics.

    Cons

    Pay rate, employee discount sucks(customers get a better deal when they purchase online). Outdated monitors and technology, Auto Zone is way ahead of the game.

    Advice to Management

    Bettler pay rate for management team, higher employee discount 20% wont cut it when customers get up to 30% online. Upgrade the computer system.
