Manager (Current Employee) – LONGBRANCH NJ – March 7, 2018
Goal s set daily with expectations/ very good trainng program/reward was in the ability to attract quality team members and develop and buy in to a team goal mind set. Enjoyed redeveloping underperforming stores into target beating locations
Advance taught me many skills and also helped me expand on the skills I already had brought to the position.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Mount Pleasant, MI – February 26, 2018
A typical day at work would be spent on a phone, speaking to potential new clients or speaking to clients that were already with us. Advance really wants to work at an efficient pace but also provide the right answers and certainly leave the client or customer satisfied. This position was a very independent position as you need to follow protocol while speaking with a potential client or an established client. The hardest part of the job is much of the work is not done face to face so you would need to use the skills you have acquired and always make sure the customer is your priority. The most enjoyable part is when a company or customer puts their trust in you and decides from what they learned while speaking to you that they feel comfortable enough to trust you assist them with their company.l
Sales (Former Employee) – Sleepy Hollow, IL – February 16, 2018
I learned lots working for Advance Auto Parts! I've not only learned automotive tips but also gained lots of retail experience there. The main goal at Advance everyday was to ensure a successful day! Always did what it took to achieve customer satisfaction. From signing for parts that came to the door, to greeting and assisting every customer that walked through the door. I WILL NEVER regret the tasks and challenges that came with the job and ill always send others to advance regardless if I'm no longer employed there.
Parts Professional (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – February 6, 2018
There's nothing to special about working for Advance Auto Parts. Its a retail based job that demands a general understanding of automotive systems.
Most definitely there are people who work for this company that are less than enthusiastic about it. But there are managers who are good at what they do. Realistically this is a stepping stone for something better.
Service Technician (Former Employee) – Miami, FL – January 3, 2018
O.k place to work not all bad pay good, if their interested. Upon working there with-in my first 6 months. Witness 7 unprofessional terminations in which. Supervisor and a technician would ambush a employee take his work truck and leave stranded at a work site.
Pays well, company van, gas card
Poor management, No health benefits at all, job security
Enjoyed my time there, the pay for my position wasnt great but the experience itself made up for it somewhat. Overall i had a great time there and its easy to move and go places just as long as you work hard and show up.
Cashier and Salesperson (Former Employee) – Mason City, IA – November 8, 2017
At advance the management really pushes all of the work on to the part time employees, from taking care of customers to filling out management paper work. With this it seemed they had no cares for including everyone or spreading out the work load among employees.
Manager (Former Employee) – Citrus Heights, CA – November 2, 2017
I did not like working at Advance America, the hours were always long,, and ALWAYS SHORT STAFFED! I worked 6 days a week due to the required work to do and being short staffed, Walking to the bank to make large deposits through out the day was scary and stressful and the pressure to push people to loan that clearly did not make enough money to pay back the loan seemed unethical to me.
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Nashville-Davidson, TN – October 25, 2017
It is real interesting dealing with new topics from customers and staff members. I have adapted to the level of change and dealt with it in a professional matter. Having social skills can help working here. Management changes up so much it make you wonder why and then the talking of managers gives you an in site afterwards. I enjoy doing my job and really respect the CEO's vision. This what strives me to doing my job in this company.

Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – October 8, 2017
It was a job that will help you learn more about vehicles and how it work to come all together. A place where you are able to advance if you put in the effort to learning as much as you can to be able to provide better customer service.
Manager (Current Employee) – Michigan Center, MI – September 19, 2017
Great beginner Job, it is a good place to learn how to become a manager but you need a good Dm to help you get to the next level. Job advancement past GM is slim to none. They like to cut positions just because.
