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

Pros

You have the opportunity to expand your automotive knowledge. Some benefits including 25% discount from Sprint. Lots of vehicle-specific information is available on their Znet. Employee discounts really add up if you enjoy working in the garage.

Cons

Low pay for the workload, constantly understaffed, no room for advancement, pay raises barely cover next year's inflation, managers are just glorified sales associates with no additional training, ridiculous policies, cruel work environment in some circumstances.

Advice to Management

Start training your managers so you wont need 5 of them to every 2 red shirts. If you are going to remotely regulate the temperature in the stores at least make sure the more labor intensive stores receive more cooling, 74 degrees feels comfortable in an office environment but inside an already understaffed hub store it is blazing hot. Put cruise control on your delivery vans, cruise control is a crucial tool when driving 7+ hours a day in the mountains, with a speed monitoring device might I add. Choose your district managers more carefully.

    I worked at AutoZone full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Interacting with customers and keeping busy, as well as installing certain parts, can be fun.

    Cons

    The pay is poor both for non-managers and managers. There are few incentives to move up in the company, and there is little encouragement and an abundance of criticism from upper management. There seems to be a lack of sufficient concern for providing help for customers, and more concern with making money for the much-higher-ups.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe if upper management demonstrated a little more interest in the regular, everyday store employees who directly interact with the customers, they would see a greater level of customer satisfaction. I believe happy employees who are commended on their strengths as much as they are on their shortcomings are happier and more loyal to the company that they work for. Respect breeds respect.
