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

Great people, fun, fast paced, but the pay was terrible. Minimum wage is not enough and the annual raises of ten cents are not enough. The team worked well together, supported each other, great communication.
Next to no ability to control your own availability, preferential treatment given to nitwits who were somehow given keys to the castle. Can goof off and take smoke breaks within 5 minutes of start of shift or disappear out back for 10 or more minutes without explanation.
12 year olds should run the store with how many of the associates act.

Most of the people who come in and out are loyal customers, however, there are a few exceptions. Some of the customers can be rude. But I enjoyed the job, the managers and co-workers were nice and all of them were good people to be around. I never once felt threatened by any of them, or a customer for that matter. It was a very chill and easy to work in atmosphere, I would work there again.
Good people, only strict when they need to be.
Only one break if you're working 8 hours, and that's lunch.
Work was good because the people you work with are noble. Even when it gets hectic you get the help you need. My managers and coworkers we're all great. You learn so much just by having conversation with the customers.

Awesome place you will enjoy it. But they don't pay enough. I wish they had better training and also make sure that every employee does same amount of work instead of one employee doing almost everything.

For near minimum wage, why would I clean bathrooms? Maybe they don't know unemployment rate is under 4%!! For the pay they offer, there are many other low wage companies to work for that don't require cleaning bathrooms. The store manager was great but was held to insuring these cleaning jobs were adhered to. Sorry, no additional comments.

Typical work day involves dealing with customers and stock. There is always stock to put up or take down or rearrange the store. I learned about parts on vehicles I didn't know existed. Managers can be cool and teach you if they are the type to do that. Then you have some that think they are entitled to do nothing but give instructions. Workplace culture depends on the store you work at. Some people are cool and will help you, other stores may have people that are selfish, lazy, or just plain foolish. Hardest part of the job is dealing with ungrateful customers and managers that do not put in the work they expect you to put in. Most enjoyable part of the job is the great co-workers if you are lucky and the nice repeat customers.
benifits like health and dental is relatively cheap compared to other places.
Retail stores are horrible, Weekends and long hours, No holidays off except Christmas and Thanksgiving day, Other than that, you are on a plantation, I bet the CEO's and their administratin get time off for their families.

Working here is like working in mordor itself. The amount of disrespect in this company is enormous. I have multiple years of automotive experience but yet I am paid minimum wage. This is absolutely disgusting, management shows you no respect. I am almost 30 years old but yet I am treated like some high school kid which infuriates me. I would never work for this company ever again.
Parts Salesman (Current Employee) – Toledo, OH – September 13, 2018
It was a fun place to work with great people to work around. Sometimes Stressful, but it was worth it. I learned a lot when it came to the different people that came into the store, as well as the different parts that people needed.
They tout a good program, but do not follow through with non-corp employees. People are expendable here. They have a great culture, if it were followed. But unfortunately most things are ignored unless it's made public.
