    I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Co-workers are good to work with.
    20% discount.

    Cons

    Poor Pay, Goals are not realistic, No commission so have no real point to hit goals other than getting fired(not a good job so can be easily replaced). Customers are clueless and not grateful, Company does not like to move people up.

    Advice to Management

    Let the store managers be managers. They have to deal with the DL way to much. Have more employees so the stores can be ran the right way. Make people want to stick around rather than just stick around till something better shows up.

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

    Pros

    Decent place to work
    Good associates
    Fun customers
    Adequate pay

    Cons

    Upper management had a fixation on the "fix of the year."
    District Managers varied from uber-competent to not remotely competent
    Seemed to be no promotion from within past the general manager level
    Favoritism was a huge issue

    Advice to Management

    1. Develop some objective standards, and stop acting as if all problems are fixed by your single solution
    2. Insisting general managers are in charge while micromanaging them is not coherent.
    3. Focus on the business of serving customers, not the business of serving corporate egos.
