extremely busy work enviroment
Commercial Sales Manager (Current Employee) –  Marion, NCMarch 30, 2016
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.

Unfocused
Corporate Manager (Current Employee) –  Raleigh-Durham, NCMarch 29, 2016
Company doesn't seem to have any clear direction. Between CEOs so maybe things will change. The culture is one of non-urgency and failing to step up to the plate and own projects.

Easy Job
Time management (Current Employee) –  Greenville, NCMarch 25, 2016
The job is fairly easy but don't expect to get paid much. There are a lot of things out of your control and nobody really cares if things get done, but if you just need a job it will do.

Waste of skill and time
PT, closing manager (Former Employee) –  new yorkMarch 23, 2016
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.
Pros
If you like cars and drama you work with both
Cons
everything. there are to many to list

Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Hamburg, PAMarch 22, 2016
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.

A typical day is very in and out. Learned more about cars such as repairs and how a vehicle works in and out. Management where I work is a balance of work and fun.

Productive workplace
HUB, Inventory Specialist (Current Employee) –  Morgantown, WVMarch 21, 2016
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.
Pros
its a job
Cons
No room for advancement and stagnant wages

Great.. if you like Shareholders who know little about the industry running the show.

Pros

Fun in Soccer Practice
Store Protection Specialist (Former Employee) –  6300 New Hampshire Avenue, Takoma Park, MD 20912March 17, 2016
When the goal is to develop skill and win games, it’s easy to forget that soccer is supposed to be fun. Nowhere is that more important than in practice.

Mobile Pro (Former Employee) –  Monticello, KYMarch 11, 2016
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.
