"I have been working for this company for four years. I've learned a lot about cars, which I didn't know zilch when I started. I recommend this job for someone in college looking for a part-time job."

"I used to love this company and as a mechanic would only shop at the Burlington, Iowa store for parts. They have an open door policy but if you use it you will be penalized. I have been here longer than anyone else in the store including the manager. Yet I make less than everyone else including new hires with no experience. My car broke down and I couldn't afford the parts at Advance even with my discount."

"Store management is bad, constantly changing schedules daily, district manager does not care about employees, no organization."

"I started working at Advanced a few months ago, thinking, oh, I finally got away from the lazy redneck down the street. Well, the first week seemingly went okay, working along the guy who hired me, then he quits before he gets fired on that Thursday. As time went on, I was thinking week by week, that my full time hours will finally, then the new "micro manager", i.e., Mr. Perfect came in to be the boss. A boss really shouldn't be that busy. Bossy, always going by the book. Now, despite the fact I'm still working part time status, and "he doesn't have enough hours to go around", one Saturday he tells me to clock and go home, for I made a mistake. In doing a delivery... I have never ever been sent home for that. Next week, I I'm only up to twenty hours and I cannot take this place anymore!"

"I was doing WPF development for Advanced Auto Parts. When I started the position was over my head, however, I was chosen more on attitude and ability than experience. They supported me and allowed me to learn the technology."

"The company sucks and is very cheap. They don't want to give raises but promote you for a dollar more and give 10 times more responsibility. Also expect to have no life and constantly be in that store."

"I worked for Advance Auto Parts from June 2013 to Oct. 2014. I found the company vision to be very positive and in the right direction. But I found that the engagement by the district leader in my area to be a bit horrible. It would seem there is a miss between corporate, district level and ultimately the store level. DL's are more worried about who they perceive instead of the success of the areas of management."

"The company was once known for its great work atmosphere and employee independence. Now however it is on a slippery slope as it is currently outgrowing its infrastructure and being forced to outsource many contractors. Instead of focusing on improving its core systems, they are remaining antiquated while cutting edge sales tracking tools are being introduced which do little to serve the management down in the trenches. To stop competitive intrusion they flood the marketplace."
