I have been working at AutoZone full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

I am lucky to have great people to work with, the pay is decent and the hours are good. Very low turnover rate at my store. Employee discount is great.

Cons

Sometimes too much emphasis is put on things that don't matter, some priorities need to be rearranged. I often hear other employees not being as satisfied with their stores as I am. I enjoy selling but strongly dislike the pushing of trivial products such as injector cleaner or bulb grease. I would prefer to build a strong trusting relationship with my customers creating a customer for life rather than nabbing that extra $5 sale and turning the customer off in the future.

    I worked at AutoZone part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Usually great coworkers who communicate effectively.
    20 percent discount on most parts and goods.
    Great learning environment for getting your foot into the door for the automotive environment.
    Good knowledge base with coworkers.
    I used this job to hop into another automotive job that didn't revolve around selling parts. Happy about that.

    Cons

    Strict retention policy. 12 point system. 6 points for being more than an hour late on a weekend. Not great for anyone with attendance issues.
    Aggressive push to upsell or add-on to sale by the store manager, but zero Associate commission.
    Truck days are usually difficult. Lots of heavy lifting, sorting, and stocking. The day tends to start off strong, but usually thins out by the afternoon, leaving a handful of employees to put up the remaining pallets.

    Advice to Management

    Lower your standards on WITTGTJDR. CSRs are not paid commission so quit forcing them to upsale.
