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
I am happy since working here is satisfying customer's need and learning about auto parts at different levels and tasks. Understanding common problems associated with seasonal changes for driving needs
Through my time at Advance Auto Parts I have come to love the people and atmosphere with my coworkers. However, the daily grind and culture of the automotive industry has sickened me at times. Advance Auto Parts is a good company in a corrupt industry. That is what I truly believe.
Laid back environment, Adequate pay for most positions.
Short unpaid lunches. Very little coverage for shifts, Automotive industry
Was promised full time position before I started but still hasn’t happened after 3 months. Gm is to scared of his boss to asked the question. Took the job partially for the benefits that I still don’t have. Lots of promises no action. Looking for better job. Don’t work here pay is really low for what you do.
ASSISTANT GENERAL MANAGER (Current Employee) - Herndon, VA - February 5, 2020
Typically come in and assess store, customer flow. Work on any backstock/inventory replenishment. Once a month help with signage changeover for new promotions. Start of every week review upcoming planogram changes and any pricing that may have dropped and needs to be completed on salesfloor. Assist customers with their automotive needs, both professional and commercial customers. Back Up driver, deliver parts as needed to support the business.
Help customers find out what they need for the vehicles and how to get it. I learned something almost everyday about cars and I think that it was very beneficial for me. Great coworkers and managers who made it fun and exciting to go to work.
Doing track and deliveries was the best position ever given I mean at times when it was slow for the delivery you will have to go up in the front or you’re in the back doing truck only downside and con When other employees just play around Or if you ask for help it’s like management or other employees expect you don’t know where everything is or what to do in certain situations we don’t get paid enough to yell or argue at customers that the management job we were basically just get fired on the spot written up And installing batteries when other people are just lazy specially management Also there’s favoritism
Certain locations you work At will do a barbecue Meetings are OK

I have worked for advanced/Carquest auto parts for 9+ years under the carquest side and I have always had wonderful managers which I still talk to after their retirements and moves. My workmates have been awesome and I would most definitely recommend them as a prospective employer.
flexible hours, pay is good and the people you meet are great.

Managment is an issue but what job doesn't have these issues. Company needs to re train there management or change the way they train them. Also the way they use there upper management is not good they are way too limited in what they can do
