Mandatory OT is beyond ridiculous! We work 10 hour days & they still make us stay 11-12 hours. They have made us work an extra 8 hour shift for 2 months with no end in sight.
You have NO time for family at all.

I was convicted of taking my neighbor's motorcycle 45 years ago and although he got it back within a week, they still hold it against me. They say I passed the test but refused to get back to me on several occasions. They are so mismanaged that nobody else except felons will tolerate the work conditions (their loss). I but my auto parts from NAPA or eBay whenever possible because I hate walking into their store of arrogant managers.

I have a career, but I worked for ADVANCE for 9 years and honestly I would go back. Only because I enjoyed what I did. The pay was ok but the store I worked at had lifers. It was a good store to start at and it was good as long as you kept your personal business to yourself.

If you are being considered for a driving position, they will run an MVR check at their expense. 3 years clean driving is a must. ANY suspension of your license, even if for administrative reasons will disqualify you from driving
