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.

    Pros

    Its better than being unemployed

    Cons

    Low pay. Buy your own uniform. New schedule posted 3 days before following week

    Advice to Management

    If you want your salespeople to upsell and add on items, pay them some commission! You make a sales goal then offer no reward but continually tell the employee to get their numbers up. If you offered a commission based bonus on extras your sales would double. Double! Pay for your employees uniforms. I think its ridiculous that I have to buy your shirt to work for you, how cheap is that? And you dont buy them back when we leave. Maybe put an awning out front so when we are changing batteries, lights, checking engine codes etc. in the rain or baking sun we can have some protection. Just some things employees constantly talk about.
