Need new direction

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Advance Auto Parts full-time for more than 5 years

ProsDecent pay and I only see my direct supervisor a few times a year so I am able to run the store how I see fit.

ConsLately corporate has been micro-managing the stores. We also use the slogan "Service is our best part." but we never have enough payroll to make that happen. We are more focused on numbers at every level. Our motto used to be "sell more parts, have more fun." Back then it was a funner place to work and the company did better financially. Now we drill down every figure possible. I appreciate having the reports capable of seeing how my team is doing, but putting so much emphasis on it is hurting moral. Also, the computer infrastructure is about 20 years behind.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet back to having fun and raising moral and you will see better results in sales. Please quit staffing stores to the minimum hours. If you continue to do this you will have the minimum sales.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
