No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

The hourly rate was pretty good, but only because I negotiated it. Alot of the coworkers were really nice, and I enjoyed working with them.

Cons

The management was absolutely the worst; they talked down to you and teated you like an idiot ! I had a problem with the management that was race related, and tried to contact H.R. at the home office, but they refused to do anything about it!

Advice to Management

When you have people that are knowledgeable and can bring in the sales, treat them well ! When someone does something good acknowledge it instead of using the moment to bring up something petty!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Flexibility, laid back management, things get done eventually but it's not a hard job

    Cons

    Getting written up for stupid things is like going to the principals office, upper management talks to you like your a child, pay is embarrassing. Sales associates are trusted with nothing everything is locked down for manager approval.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect.

    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a mobile parts professional, I get paid to drive around and deliver parts to various commercial customers. I love driving, listening to music, and making new friends with the mechanics and service writers. I get along with all of my coworkers and morale is high. Part time employees are eligible for benefits and employees receive a 20% discount on parts.

    Cons

    The pay is dismal. $8 an hour with 20 guaranteed hours per week for a part time employee. There's a high turnover rate and no one seems to be able to attain full time status. No bonuses given to drivers, aside from the occasional free lunch. After three months I expected a review and a raise only to be told that our store was skipped this year when it came to raises. "They're given out every March, so we're obviously not getting them this year. And if you get one next year it'll likely only be ten cents or so." I was told to hope for a federal minimum wage increase instead.
