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

    Pros

    Steady work, Full time employees gain vacation time after a year, offers health insurance and benefits (overpriced)

    Cons

    This company has been my employer for 2 years now and when i was hired on i was genuinely excited and happy to get in somewhere steady with promises of being able to move up in position.. Two years later im still in the same position making the exact same pay that I started with. I am a full time manager with a good clean record. They would rather hire from outside to fill higher positions than promote from within, corporate says that its too much paperwork and man power to do this. My district Manager was hired directly into her position with absolutely no prior automotive or parts experience, the woman has no clue how to work in a store, or run one from within. many colleagues of mine have been forced to leave due to lack of payment opportunities or growth opportunities. sales goals are absurd, they want you to make almost ten times your hourly pay in sales per hour while having to compete their massive list of daily and weekly tasks. If you do not make within 20 percent of this goal 3 times you are fired... over all most employees feel alienated from higher leadership and way over pressured from corporate.

    average pay for a full time sales person is about 8/hr
    average pay for GM is 40k/yr
    DARREN JACKSON MAKES OVER 700k/yr in salary plus 300k or more in bonuses... garbage...

    Advice to Management

    give the people who are dedicated what they deserve, pay raises regardless of how big the store is, saying someone is at the top of their pay scale is ridiculous,

    give people the opportunity to advance to higher positions GM,DL,CAM,RVP etc..

    Advice to Management

    Leverage ideas ways to differentiate from AutoZone and O’Reilly’s instead of consistently reacting.
