I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Pay for management and above is very good, You get to meet and work with some good people and develop some great relationships.

Cons

They change course too often, have become very task oriented and in my opinion lost focus. I was spending less time working with customers and more time imputing data and working towards inventory goals, my customers were moved down a notch. Inventory accuracy is important, but when the customer feels neglected it makes no difference.

Advice to Management

You have hired some good people to manage the stores, let them do it.

    Remind yourself as to the core values of business. Read and enforce your own policies or change them. Don't chant about business integrity and not abide by it. Promote from within.
