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

Pros

Good benefits, okay pay, incentives to sell but not competitive as in a commission type job. Work isn't terribly labor intensive, and with automotive knowledge, helping customers is a breeze. There's plenty of tools and machinery to perform tasks needed all around the store. They allow you to go above and beyond helping a customer with their vehicle if you feel comfortable and confident doing so. Multi-tasking abilities are a must. Answering phone calls and helping customers while making sure deliveries (if you're also a driver) are being made accurately and on time all at once is something that happens commonly.

Cons

Pay could be better especially for knowledge required to work there.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing. Be understanding that some days, goals just aren't' gonna be met.

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

    Pros

    Great people in the stores. Competitive pay compared to others in industry. Great products and name brands sold in the stores. Great values and good business practices with the customers.

    Cons

    Leadership statagies are not working and they blame operations. Leadership is not stable. Continues to change leadership but the results do not change. Culture is not there anymore.

    Advice to Management

    Need to appreciate what you have in the team and the talent you have as an organization. If you have more than 65% of your team failing to meet your statagies, then you need to have the courage to accept that your statagies are not working to grow.
