    "I hope I'm just passing through. Not that it's a bad job - I just want more out of life. I.e., it's not them, it's me."

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

    Pros

    Fairly secure
    Most software engineers there are a pleasure to work with

    Cons

    Pay does not seem to be up to the market (at least, before the generally nice bonus), and merit increases tend to be fairly stingy.

    Advice to Management

    When you claim innovation as a core value, actually value innovation instead of stifling it. One suggestion: take a look at Google's 20% free innovation time program and implement something similar.

    I worked at AutoZone full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There aren't any trust me

    Cons

    Low pay, 0 commision, absolute lack of competent management, corporate could care less about employees, weekly sessions of being humiliated for failing sales goals, having to sell packets of grease or your threatend with termination (though it never happens) because they'll have to pay unemployment. Backstabbing and conspiracy to fire employees by trickery and changing their schedules behind their back. A totally absurd points system. If you or your kids are sick,sucks for u. Get ready for 10 cent raises, if your lucky. Berating by managers, district managers and and regional managers that are dumber than bag of turnips. Horrible hours and constant fear or being robbed by disatisfied customers.

    Advice to Management

    There's no point to this since they dont care and certainly will not read it
