I worked at AutoZone full-time

Pros

AutoZone will continue to grow and make tons of money. If you are bonus and stock option eligible, this is great. There is opportunity for advancement.

Cons

Wearing store uniforms on Mondays and other days. Company cheer. As you might expect from a car parts store, middle-management is full of good-ole-boys who manage by bullying instead of professional skills. AZ makes lots of money by not spending it, so don't expect modern equipment, benefits, or any perks.

Advice to Management

Professionals like to be treated like professionals instead of overpaid store employees.

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

    Pros

    20% Discount on almost everything in the store
    Flexible Scheduling
    Great way to start learning about cars
    Staff was very helpful when answers to questions were needed.

    Cons

    I was worked like a horse.
    You are required to work days and nights.
    Employees are hired with absolutely zero automotive experience.

    Advice to Management

    If you say you're going to promote, stick to it. I got tired of getting the run around.

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

    Pros

    Good co-workers, discount on parts, meet people with similar interests.

    Cons

    Obsolete management philosophy, weak information systems, ethics are discouraged. Management believes in shaming employees in order to drive increased sales of damaging "wittdjr" items.

    Advice to Management

    Successful companies find ways to improve communication internally and externally. A recent survey of employees was completed but where is the result? Open the channels of communication and for God's Sake stop pushing those stupid packets! Most of them damage the parts they are used on and short out electrical devices. Customers are not as stupid as you think they are, they have the internet, they have other options. How many fuel pump damage lawsuits are resulting from pushing "injector cleaners" on people.
