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

Pros

Flexible scheduling, plenty of locations, good benefits

Cons

Bring your own knowledge of automobiles because they will not teach you anything, their idea of motivation is "Do this or else we will cut your hours or simply fire you", their Culture is "The customer always comes first" their Value is "nickle and dime every customer with check out challenge items so I get my bonus, or I will fire you", their training method is "It has to be done, so do it. Or be fired"

Advice to Management

Respect the associates more and they will do more for you. Offer more training then simple one line pitches to sell check out challenges. Develop associates instead of threatening them with being fired constantly. Be more consistent with goals and direction instead of flip flopping every period.

    Managers only care about getting bonuses if they reach certain sales figures. they dont care about the employees
