Career growth is solid, but you must put forth the effort.
Excellent perks at upper levels, maybe too many in some cases.

Too top heavy in management.
Commercial field teams not completely sales driven.

Advice to Management

Look at the eeffects of what happens with being top heavy to what teams in the field need.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed the variety of customers that always came in. You meet so many new people and you make great connections with commercial customers and the staff of the store. Benefits are cool and not to mention the discount.

    Cons

    The discount is very strict and can only be used by immediate household. So no helping that buddy who has always helped you. You can get fired for trying to help customers who can't afford total cost of the parts or the labor to get them installed

    Advice to Management

    Be more lienient with team members and make sure that the GM in the store is properly trained and focused on the business.
