I have been working at AutoZone full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

The company is pretty much recession proof. Bad economy - good for AutoZone.

Cons

They are cheap, and pay below market for their workers

Advice to Management

Let some of those options and big $$ trickle down from the 6th floor

    I worked at AutoZone full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    AutoZone has so many opportunities for educational and growth experiences. Working at the corporate headquarters for over 15 years, I watched everything and everyone. For instance, I watch new people adjust to Autozone's highly positive cultural environment, and I watch others advance in job roles from entry level to upper-management. What a wonderful place to work, with state of the art technologies and methodologies. And the family of friends environment who go the extra mile to help when needed. I will always remember my experiences at AutoZone and all of those around me. I will always appreciate everyone who supported me and those who didn't know me but still befriended me. This is a very professional organization of experts.

    Cons

    At the corporate headquarters, the only cons I can think of are difficulty with parking space, difficulty with downtown traffic, and the long daily commute - about .75 hour to work and sometimes about 1.25 back home.

    Advice to Management

    AutoZone has an open-door policy, where you are to feel free with your visits and thoughts to anyone, from bottom to top. I haven't heard this in awhile, but it was stated on a weekly basis that "Everyone is on the same level. We are all AutoZoners. No one is better that the other. We are all on the same team. That is why we wear a red shirt or a management shirt every Monday (or uniform day)."

    I have been working at AutoZone full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great mobility. Decent pay and benefits. Flexible hours ( as long as your not salaried).

    Cons

    Upper management tend to be uneducated, they often conduct business in illegal manners. For example forcing an employee to take a lunch an hour before their scheduled time to leave work., or making sexual jokes about other employees. This company has an employee relations department, however nothing ever is done with any the reports.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to stop being friends with each other and start reporting improper behaviors.
