Advance auto parts was the worst job I ever had, more dysfunctional then then being in the military, the company dose not listen to the people working in the store, the work load is to high for the pay, if you take a job with advance, you are a fool, the Brent store on hwy 5 is a sinking ship, it has had 3 GM"s in the last 3 years, there employees are looking for work so they can leave there, wal-Mart pays better to their buggy pushers, Oreilly auto parts pays better, I've had 3 pay raises since Apr 2017, I never got a pay raise at advance, don't get caught in the trap of low pay, and dumbbutts in corporate telling you how to run a business that have never worked in a store, be forewarned the Brent Al store is not the job for you, run run run, don't look back.

There is no criminal background check. Managers can hire pretty much anyone. While the requirements state a HS Diploma or equivalent is required, there is no checking of what the applicant puts on their application
