I worked at AutoZone full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Wide selection of auto parts and decent training opportunities.

Cons

Company (at least this district) is not too women-friendly - After 5 years on the job, being ASE certified, I tried unsuccessfully for 2 years to advance to management. When I finally threatened gender discrimination, I was finally allowed a chance. It should not be this difficult. Primarily male management and on the inside, they are very abusive towards women in management.

Advice to Management

Treat your employees like you would your family and they will readily give back to you. Continue to treat them like you do and continually underpay them (and expect the moon in return), and you will continue to get the constant turnover and lack of knowledge in parts that you have now. There is not a single parts pro in the business that will readily take out the abuse that these corporate parts stores dish out -- and for little to no decent wage ($8-9.50/hr).

    I have been working at AutoZone full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    decent pay/bonus opportunities, something challenging is always happening

    Cons

    Clueless IT Management, public brown-nosing ....,culture of blame whenever a system being kept going with duct-tape finally goes kaput after refusing to spend money to do necessary upgrades

    Advice to Management

    Hire Managers with Technical skills,not who's best at hot air/brown-nosing etc,spend money on replacing ancient systems/technologies !
