When emailing earlier I noticed something weird. After the persons email address is has their title, well, I noticed that there are now GM, GM I, GM II, and GM III designations. What does that mean? I would assume it's tied to pay grade but why make... read more
The jokes on you, we really don't have any auto parts to sell, only snacks like Snickers and Reese Cups. We enjoy making up b---s--- spreadsheets because that's what we were hired to do!
What AAP calls sales is actually spread sheet analytics. Everyone keeps posting about never seeing the cams well most of the cam’s time is spent on spreadsheets analytics and conference calls about spreadsheet analytics so it leaves very little time... read more
flip flop, that's what Advance is all about. Buy at NAPA.
Advance is all about lie's. They do not care about their people or customers. Cuts being made to boost stock.

You would think AAP would direct UBER drivers to a commercial customer for service. Maybe even send them to a tech-net shop, but noooo.... Customers are the lifeblood of our business at Advance Auto Parts. As we evolve and grow, we continue to build... read more
Bye Bye Okray.
It's impossible to order the correct parts through the home office "special order" team. One said team member has never heard of Raybestos. "How do you spell that?" Are you f---ing kidding me? Or how about Advance Salvage? They have clueless kids... read more
Who saw that coming?
The reason nobody is getting any raises and your hours are being cut is your top executives are keeping it all to themselves. So far this month the top 7 executives of this company have been given 2,955,500.00 in stock. That is only for the month of... read more
NAPA is beating Advance in customer service, price, delivery on time. Ask any shop.
What happened to the rotating electrical and battery specialist.?
ROTELLA $12.99/gallon must buy 500 cases. Please see team members for details.
Don't allow someone who has had their dreams killed, to kill yours. Don't allow someone who has accepted their limitations, to limit you.
So very true, this company keeps wanting to blame employees for lack of sales, yet go into any Advance store on a given day and watch 1-2 people try and handle phone calls, battery installations, CEL checks, wiper blade installs, and returns. The... read more
It's gotten quiet around here lately because the stupid admins who run this page blocked everyone that was being critical of advance.

The executive team at AAP spent half a day at the carquest training center to learn the difference between a commercial customer and a diy customer and the difference between a professional part and a diy part. AAP, a retail company, bought carquest... read more
This company can't stand for you to tell the truth. Customers want to know why service is bad and you tell them the DM's cutting hours. DM's get upset and tell you don't tell the customer that. Tell them we are managing our payroll. If you look up... read more
It never ceases to amaze me how this company accepts so much shrink with no questions asked. Coming from the CARQUEST side we took pride in our inventory being correct and having positive inventory results. Advance don't seem to even care, maybe its... read more
Yes, because the company announced great earnings. So then, why all the stores closing and layoffs? Oh right, companies LIE! It never crosses anyone's mind that they fudge numbers and outright lie. Amazing, the gullibility and naivete of most people.
KC AAP and CQ stores have been targeted by FMP to finish them off. Weak leadership in KC has opened the door for easy pickings especially when it comes to taking people. Same MO will show up in other markets as well. Thanks McBobo.
And things are looking rosy... We'll drink to that tonight. Do not forget to show up for work tomorrow. Advance Auto Parts Inc. (AAP $116) posted Q4 EPS of $2.49, which included a benefit related to the TCJA, or $0.77 ex-items, versus the expected... read more
Well the high fives are running rampant in Roanoke and Raleigh after the Q4 results announcement. Legacy AAP rookie folks are giddy. CQ legacy professionals are not so optimistic. Recent bombardment of class action lawsuits over alleged false... read more

I was with AAP for 8 years. Was a store manager for 6 of those years. I was a higher paid GM. After the purge happened my DM was promoted and a new one took over. The new one made my life hell. Numbers we're good, team morale was good, but he didn't... read more

Over the past 6 months I've had my hours cut every week. As a fulltime employee I've went from 45 hours on the average to 24 hours this week. I understand cutting out the overtime but working a fulltime employee less than 35 hours is insane. Last... read more
