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

Pros

Not a hard job,people are nice.Customers are very nice.

Cons

One word ,management.The manager is always on your back,steals sales from you to make his numbers high.Does not know how to manage.Maybe corp needs to concentrate on there managers and pay there people better.You cant support a family on 8.00 an hour,at 12 hours a week.

Advice to Management

Do more than just show up,work with the employees.And please dont believe everything that a store manager tells you.Its not just him making you money ,but the ones that are out doing the actual work.

    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay Good benefits Good area Management ie RVP,DL

    Cons

    The company will not let managers run their stores.We are the head key turner.We used to write our own budgets, staffing templates and got to manage our stores. Now corperate runs the store. They tell us when we work when our team works and what we do each day. Used to have a good quality of life work balance.The hiring process takes too long and is to complicates fro the person applying and for managers to key in.

    Advice to Management

    You need to trust the people in the store. We are your frontline with the customers. You need to go out and work in the stores not just stop and visit I mean clock in work an 8 hour shift for a whole week. See what we get to do.
