Advance Auto Parts Reviews

A great company to work for but does not deserve five stars! They want you to say "no" to the customer on certain returns and yet still enforce the "customer is always right" principle, so it can be one sided at times. Also the employee discount is less than a customer can get when buying parts online.

I have been with the company for almost a year now and it has been the best year I've had in a workplace. I have learned so much about auto parts and have gained confidence in selling and recommending parts to customers. It is a great company to work for, very easy to pick things up and understand the computer based training and very easy to establish friendships with each other and the regular customers you may see everyday. I would definitely tell people to apply and work for this company. I became a key Carrier after 8 months of working with then so there is definitely growth opportunities in the company, my manager was an assistant manager for a year and became the store manager. So the potential is out there to move up quickly, which is awesome.
I have been employed for almost 5 years with worthy wages and benefits beyond medical. They are a large auto parts company with many branches so that we may find the right part(s) for the complete job.
Growth in the region I work in is really hard, just because the fellow employees and management are not leaving anytime soon. But, that is a good sign for Advance.
