Fun Job and it plays right into me going to an automotive school
Driver/Sales Associate (Current Employee) – Ashburn, VA – September 2, 2015
It's a fun place to work and I am learning a little about cars, I just want to do more with the NASCAR and automotive indrustry. I would like to stay at Advance Auto Parts but I need a better paying job because I am about to move out of my parents house fopr the first time.
I get to drive but I dont have to driver my personal car
not hard work, but stay busy all day, must budget time well. Management stays focused and are a big help. Strong co workers makes job much easier. Hardest part of job is being on your feet 8 to 10 hours.

Awful place to work!! This company does not care about their employees at all. Benefits bad 20% off everything in the store but everything is marked up so high its not worth it. You get a better discount using promo codes online and selecting pick up in store. Work place is full of not so smart people because they pay worse than ANY retail store or any other parts store. The management hardly does any managing. The DRAMA is so ridiculous daily. If something is going on with you or your job you are last to know.

The typical day at Advance Auto was troubleshooting common problems such as a dead battery, alternator, or starter. We also helped customers look up parts and found the right tools for their particular job.
Typical day is quite busy, between customers, telephone calls and various tasks there is enough to keep everyone busy. If only management would keep them busy, to much burden is placed on the shoulders of to few.
Great.. if you like Shareholders who know little about the industry running the show.

Half the employees dont know anything about cars, management especially. Complaints arent handled right , Shareholders have Way too much involvement when most have no working knowledge of automotive parts let alone the industry , If you arent management, you dont exist.

Advance Auto Parts is a great company that really cares for their employees. There is always room for improvement, and full time managers have the opportunity to earn performance-based monthly bonuses.

This is a great place to work. The employees are great and management is great. Advance Auto Parts is a large company and each store is ran from afar. Some ideas from up-top are not always welcomed, but its understood. This store was a wealth of knowledge for me, and I enjoyed it.
