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

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Advance is the people. The employees truly care about helping customers. Many of my employees have been with the company for over 10 years. They care about their jobs and want to provide excellent service.

    Cons

    The pay is very low at the management level. My income qualifies my children for state aid, and I've been with Advance for over 20 years.

    Advice to Management

    Increase salaries for store managers. Hire more parts pros so that the managers don't need to work 65+hours a week on salary.

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

    Pros

    They have direct deposit and close on Christmas Day.

    Cons

    This is not a job for professionals or for people who enjoy operational management. If you are looking for a management job, this is only a starter job. Working here at any level below DM is a job selling car parts. If that is your thing, and you hate your family, I encourage you to apply.

    The company is entirely too knee jerk. They seem to want to do anything that they can to make life miserable for GM's. In our region, GM's who aren't achieving the unrealistic sales targets are required to work 6 11 hour days per week. Want a cost of living raise more than once every 5 years? Well, for most people that work at AAP, that is just too bad.

    Advice to Management

    Quit saying that you are going to do things and then just act like you never said it. New parts look up systems, not having managers work a template, 50 hour work weeks....whatever it is this week, stick with it.
