Does Advance Auto Parts offer relocation assistance?

Pros

They offer an average benefits package that includes 401k matching. There are plenty of stores all around, and it is easy enough to transfer to a new area if you're looking for a change of scenery.

Cons

Nothing is really challenging about the work, but it really depends on who is apart of your team. If you have lazy people that don't want to work and just want to show up for a paycheck then you're going to have a rough time picking up their slack, because there are only a few people who work per shift and there is a lot that needs to be done in a day. Luckily none of it is hard, but it is time consuming and monotonous. It really all comes down to where your store is located and who you are working with. If you're on one of the outlying non-busy stores that only has a DIY walk-in customer base, then your life is going to be cake. It'll be so easy it's boring.

Advice to Management

Increase the pay and hours.

Does Advance Auto Parts offer parental leave?

Pros

Great Coworkers-almost everyone is great too get along with Great work environment Steady paced environment Awesome manager-very understanding and easy to work with. Paid maternity leave for full time

Cons

Told employees there's no money for raises and then turned around and bought Diehard batteries and paid Bruce Willis $$ for a commercial. Regional management is not very organized/ there's not great communication; may have changed since I've left. Store layout is awful and parts layout is worse. The whole thing needs to be taken apart and redone like the other stores. Not much room for growth unless someone leaves. Training is non existent.

Advice to Management

Store manager is awesome but I really wish he had some help from regional and maybe even headquarters. The store layout doesn't work and we haven't had a floor cleaner in years. Not many employees will be willing to take things seriously in a dirty store with no help outside of store management.
