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

    Pros

    Decent hours, Friendly environment, good experience to the start of a career

    Cons

    Unfair pay rates, Horrible guidance from upper level management, Misguided goals, money hungry executives that have lost sight of what is really important..the CUSTOMER

    Advice to Management

    stop focusing on "make the day specials" that harm our customer relationships as we appear to constantly badger them with very poor irrelevant sales. Concentrate on helping them not selling them.
