I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great schedule, job security, great employee discounts, there are stores everywhere

Cons

Hard to advance with the company, merit increases in pay are a joke, company is ran by people who have no clue about the automotive industry and what it entails to run an automotive business.

Advice to Management

I would recommend everyone in upper management actually work in a store for a full week. Experience what the teams have to go through with computer problems, poor cataloging, the cut in hours and the strain caused on the team.

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

    Pros

    Met with different challenges every day, great way to help people,

    Cons

    Store manager is a bully (but some other managers were great), low pay, training is a joke (computer based mods that are easy, but no theme to do it), poor communications between the 2 dm's, a real lack of integrity overall.

    Advice to Management

    Keep to your word and culture. Building a business based on back door deals isn't the best way to build loyalty.

    I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    there is not any pros for this company what so ever.

    Cons

    low pay, crap for parts. over priced on 90% of the store. half of the higher ups treat the employees like crap, you are always being treated like crap from the DL LP RVP and so on. if you're looking to work at a parts store go to auto zone more pay and better treatment from high ups.

    Advice to Management

    learn how to be proactive. treat your employees how you want to be treated. this company needs to get their act together, maybe treat your employees like people and not just a number. maybe stand by the promises you make.
