Only one survey should be allowed on profile. Especially if the category is retail sales or if the time from the last place of employment is more than one year.

a typical workday was relaxed but could sometimes get busy depending on how many customers were entering the store. Our commercial business depended on how busy those commercial business were.

Great place for part time job

Advance is a great place to work at i you plan on never moving up the ladder in your store. Most of the positions that open up are undesirable due to location or co-workers.
Pros
Relxed, Organized
Cons
Little help from corporate, no advancement

Safety issues
DC Lead (Former Employee) –  Remington, INApril 9, 2018
There are some serious safety issues within the warehouse. When I tried to bring issues to their attention they acted as if it really didn't matter. No urgency.

Simple Driver Job
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Ashtabula, OHApril 9, 2018
Basic Job, Parts Delivery Driver.. Had to work the counter when things got busy.. Alot of BSing on my part. I'm not a mechanic even at hobbyist level. I'am a Driver.

Strung along by Management for raises and advancements in the company.. A.K.A. Dead end job. Good if you don't plan to pay many bills..
Pros
Laid back environment.
Cons
Low pay, low chance for advancements.

Productive, albeit boil-room style call center
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVApril 9, 2018
Overall, it was a great position working in Advance. Some of the management personnel were a bit lacking though. Pay was great, benefits were great, and the hours were alright. It's unfortunately, nearly impossible to rise in this particular call center unless you "know someone or are friends with someone" - which sort-of shoehorns bad leadership because everyone is friendly with one another. I learned a lot about how to fully support a diverse staff of individuals and customers alike and how to adjust to meet every customers needs, and to accommodate other team members.
Pros
Calm environment
Cons
Little is done about toxic employees, Very sales-oriented (boiler room style)

Good For First timers not wanting fast food jobs.
Key Holder/Supervisor/Driver (Former Employee) –  Pelzer, SCApril 8, 2018
Not a bad place to work if your looking to not work or be stuck in fast food. You will meet lots of local auto parts shops owners that may open up other opportunities if you want to work with auto repairs or parts.
Pros
Great people and shops to work with.
Cons
Unsustainable over long term

Work day
Auto Parts Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Washington Court House, OHApril 7, 2018
The average day at Advanced Auto Parts is to have customers question your answers, even after you have researched their needs in Advanced computer system, after you have given them the answer? Dealing with unequal, unfair and biased management. If you are to use their open door policy, your hours the next week get cut in half? The prices of the product that they sale, are high, (in the top ten in auto retailers), yet the management is constantly pushing for more sales to the customers? The employees are under paid for their experience, yet the company wants extremely qualified employees to answer all the customers questions?The one and only perk for working at Advanced Auto is the discount on parts; but in most cases the on-line offers are better than employee discounts. If you are a high school kid who needs an after school job, I would recommend McDonald's and for get auto parts retail.
Pros
employee discount 20%
Cons
Everything

Store Manager (Former Employee) –  Catonsville, MDApril 7, 2018
This company is very sneaky. Information is not readily available and senior management is very manipulative. Unless District Managers like you, your job will be difficult..

AAP In A Nutshell
Store Deployment Planner (Current Employee) –  Raleigh, NCApril 6, 2018
It is a very supportive environment and culture.
However, it requires some self-motivation to learn the job properly. There's a disconnect with training (recently implemented) and the new hires.
A majority of my time is spent maintaining inventory levels. I do a some self-teaching to better learn SQL.
It's a relaxed atmosphere and family oriented, so the work-life balance is favorable for families.
