I have been working at Advance Auto Parts part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

You are able to obtain car repair and maintenance knowledge. Great cooperation among co-workers. Most of the time there is an enjoyable customer and employee relationship.

Cons

Unfortunately, employees are paid less for the amount of work that is put in. Sometimes customers are extremely unsatisfied if you cannot help them with an issue.

Advice to Management

Be willing to give raises and appreciate employees that are providing sales for the company.

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

    Pros

    The people I worked with were great, fun people to work with. It was a real team effort. I had one of the best managers I have ever had thus far in my 25+ years of working

    Cons

    They are way too focused on goals and meeting sales projection, to the point where there was no longer any job enjoyment or satisfaction.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten up on the extremely unatainable goals. You're at the mercy of the customer. You can push a product untilthe cows come home, if they dont want to buy it they wont, and those goals may not be met for that day. DIY is always going to be that way, period.
