Corporate office in Roanoke appears to have a lot of changes coming soon. There's a brand new "team" being created that will be working email and chat support for Walmart customers, and they will be pulling employees from their current teams making... read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Advance Auto Parts Inc.
How long do you think AAP has before the inevitable bankruptcy/liquidation? Is there anybody who thinks that's not exactly where we are headed - and fast? I'm not a pessimist and I'm not an alarmist, but some things are really so obvious that there... read more
DC 30 In Kutztown Pa needs to close now. Nobody knows what they are doing. Team members doing d--gs in the parking lot and drinking beer. And no one does anything about it. Some one is going to get hurt really bad or k--led because no one knows how... read more
I just love how corporate comes around and tries to push everybody around. Especially the security guards. They think they know everything but they don’t. They treat the guards like they are little kids. When the guards have something to say to get... read more
Cheap parts. Walmart of Automotive.
Company Sux. They are closing stores. A big lay off on the way. Let's here from you on the bad service?
Honestly, these days I'm much more surprised when I hear something AAP is not closing, than the oposite. This company definitely has an expiration date attached to it... read more
Workday is running so slow, The old system for getting your pay slip was better and less complicated to log on to.
After all the cost cutting ,expense controls and hours being cut is it time to ask for union help?
As a former GPI employee (I left when they sold out,too many backstabbers in the company) I keep my eyes open. Two of the former GPI Carquest stores that were changed into Advance stores are now Carquest again. Also they closed one of the original... read more
Advance is literally the Walmart of auto parts as they team up together to provide even less customer service selling cheap Chinese garbage parts to unsuspecting customers. The Walmart/Advance Alliance is coming soon so sit back and enjoy the show... read more
We just lost two managers - one quit and the other changed location. I'm wondering if this means that my store might be in danger (which, in all honesty, wouldn't surprise me one bit.) Has anybody had similar experiences? Is this an indication that... read more
Advance upper management is to blame for being greedy. This company has no direction, and continues to apply the wrong formulas to instill loyalty in customers and employees. Parts availability is poor at best, pricing is typically higher then the... read more
Sales are down and the temp outside is hovering around 28 degrees but the regional office says the GM and their teams are to blame not the weather. Sounds like ## to me.
Why is Workday not working? I cannot log in today. I restarted my computer two times.
This is the very worst company I have ever worked for. I was with this from a part time employee to a GM. I spent the last 10 of my years as a GM. Sent to run a bunch of broken stores. The higher ups are only in it for themselves. Care nothing about... read more
Can anyone elaborate on what the 2019 CPP bonus plan is? Obviously it’s not on starting line and my CPP made bonus last period solely on DIFM sales, SPH was taken out of the equation. Well this period he has received 0 bonus communication even though... read more
Big things here in the Dallas meeting. How we're going to cut more help in the stores and MICRO MANAGE what employees we have left. YES SIR that is your big news! And WALMART is going to be the big savior!
What's the story behind the Cardone issues? Who else can supply what they can? When does Walmart buy us out?
Advance launches yet another program that doesn't work on their outdated computer system. Just another program to micro manage its employees.
Seems the changes for 2019 are im full swing, like slashing gm bonuses and agm by more than 50%. Good luck keeping ppl motivated or keeping them around.
The store I work at in Maine is advertising for delivery drivers. Why? We don't have enough business to keep our current full and part time drivers busy. Is it that we are about 1000 feet from a super Walmart,is it true we'll be delivering parts from... read more
Bahaha! People buy batteries when it's cold outside? Better yet, they buy wipers when it's pouring the rain? The public can't handle these radically new concepts.
How is this even possible? I thought for sure the ship was sunk and never imagined it would make it through 2018...
How are things going?
The clock is ticking until we all become Walmart greeters. No one is telling us about what is going to happen. Today we had some Advance people and some suit wearing guys come to our store and look around. Nobody said who they were,they just kinda... read more
If there will be no Advance Auto Parts Layoffs in 2019 please say so?
There was a post on here a few days ago. Now gone?? Advance Auto Parts Inc. Layoffs - TheLayoff.com https://www.thelayoff.com/advance-auto-parts?sort=active I am an independent CARQUEST owner and so excited by this new Walmart venture. I am in a... read more
Hearing through the grapevine that not only will we be delivering parts purchased from Walmart.com we'll be delivering anything someone buys from them. Told if we're based near a Walmart store then we'll be picking up and delivering anything they... read more
I know that there is almost a panic urge not to fall behind in the area of e-commerce and that the idea was to take on Amazon, but I see a big downside to this whole Walmart story. Everyone knows that the car parts market is a specific market and in... read more
I feel this is the start of Walmart buying out Advance. Advance has been seeking a buyer for some time. How will this work? Walmart.com sells something online for less than an independent can buy it from Advance and then have it delivered to the... read more
This is the first step. Online collaboration and then Walmart buys AAP - this is just my prediction and we had a long thread on this topic a year ago. We'll see what happens and Walmart pulls the triggered - they have to as Amazon will move into this... read more
As a former independent,the first Advance people we met claimed they "are the Walmart of auto parts" well that is certainly true now. Walmart will take over and close stores if they compete with the new Walmart/Advance program. Better start looking... read more
Jump ship while you can . more store closures are coming and just like everything else , they'll lie to your face then fire you the same day. Look at the utah stores that are being sold off!!! Look at the Las Vegas stores that went to shi*. Now you... read more
Is anyone writing their schedule to a labor percentage of sales? What percentage are you writing it? Hows it working?
I will no longer shop or call Advance. The stores have few employees working on any given day, they cant answer the phone or take care of ringing up a simple quart of oil much less any idea what a car or a part is or does. This is simply my rant as... read more
Customer made a comment the other day after about 15 minutes waiting to pay for a quart of oil. Advance is just like Walmart all of these cash registers but yet only one person waiting on customers and yall don't even have a self checkout. I said... read more
This company is a joke. Do not buy
How can a DM continue to cut help but then ask why we are losing sales? Oh because he is another genius that Advance hired that has never run a store in his life but he knows it all.
