Topics regarding layoffs at Advance Auto Parts Inc.

Almost time

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

Who is monitoring this site!!

There was a post on here a few days ago. Now gone?? Advance Auto Parts Inc. Layoffs - I am an independent CARQUEST owner and so excited by this new Walmart venture. I am in a... read more

Delivery service

Hearing through the grapevine that not only will we be delivering parts purchased from 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

The downside on the Walmart partnership

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

Sell out,wiil kill independents

I feel this is the start of Walmart buying out Advance. Advance has been seeking a buyer for some time. How will this work? sells something online for less than an independent can buy it from Advance and then have it delivered to the... read more

Walmart buying Advance Auto Parts (AAP)

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

The end is near

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

Store closures

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

Labor percentage to sales

Is anyone writing their schedule to a labor percentage of sales? What percentage are you writing it? Hows it working?

Advance is Walmart of customer service

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

No Help = Lost Sales

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.

Free parts delivery

Advance has already lost so many commercial customers the only way they could make a comeback would be to offer free parts delivered yesterday with lifetime warranties and cases of brake clean , quarts of brake fluid, and cases of Coolant included as... read more

No future

There is no future plans. Add CEO who knows Chips. cuts people. Only a matter of time before this company folds. NAPA is stronger and better parts. Delivery is slow. Wait for it. Wait for it. Customer walks.

Time to go

Advance Auto Parts does not care about people. Time to look. Do not get stuck waiting for a lie to unfold.

AAP never cared about commercial business

Advance has never cared about commercial business and never will. They are perfectly content selling Betty Boop keychains and Tinkerbell floormats because they can make 1000% on them. Since the buyout, all AAP has done is completely destroy the CQ... read more

Special Pay Program

Heard the CQ cams are being paid as much as 2.5 X the base pay as entry level cams. Why the discrepancy for the same job???

CARQUEST Pride vs. Advance

Ever notice how the people that came from CARQUEST speak about their former company with pride? Those guys had careers and did whatever necessary to be successful and attain goals, yet have fun in the process. Their annual turnover rate was never... read more

CQ locations

All CQ locations will be closed as leases expire. The PC term is “consolidated”but the end result is the same. The CQ customers overall do not transition to an AAP location and the sales are lost to competitors. This has and will continue nationwide.

Raleigh Offices

Looks like the Raleigh offices are moving to another location in the Raleigh area. Either the lease is up and the Sloan’s will not renew, but more likely the continuation of eliminating all people and places formerly associated with CQ/GPI. Maybe AAP... read more

New wave of Layoffs in Raleigh

Several long-time, high-quality CQ employees were let go on Friday and a few others quit. So much for knowledgeable teammates on the professional team.

Worldquest in Houston

Anyone know if it is officially open? I don't live anywhere near Houston, just curious how things are going there.

How many people are looking for another job?

Curious to learn how many people are already looking for a new job outside of AAP? The situation has become so bad that I can't imagine there are many employees who are actually happy with their jobs right now. Actually, I'm thinking everybody is so... read more

Time to reINVEST, too.

"While the S&P 500 rose 19% for the year, O'Reilly Automotive (ORLY) ended 2017 almost 14% below where it started. AutoZone (AZO) fell 10%, and Advance Auto Parts (AAP) tanked 41%." "AutoZone is No. 1 in the number of stores with roughly 5,465... read more

Time to reinvent !

Hello, I retired as the owner of a successful retail distribution company several years ago. We generated millions of dollars in sales and supplied the large box stores with top notch service . I decided to come out of retirement and seek part time... read more

Another Pepsi-FritoLay exec?

Just when you think Mr. Potato Head has finally gotten the idea that delivering auto parts in a highly competitive environment to demanding customers that all expect hot-shot deliveries is NOT the same as delivering cartons of Doritos to a... read more

CPP 2018 Bonus plan?

Can anyone elaborate on what the 2018 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

Advance Frauds

Advance Frauds

advance all about stock

Advance has forgotten about its people and customers. it is all about wall street. Closing stores to come to make more money. CEO a millionaire, making money off poor.

Screwed over more folks in Raleigh
