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

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
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
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 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.
Laid off the remaining call center employees in Raleigh today, no notice, no severance, no nothing. Shows how much they care about employees.
The way Advance treats it's employees is as bad as any other low end retailer, no loyalty given, no loyalty gained. This company is scrambling to keep it's head above water by stepping on the heads of the working stiffs, and the workers have had... read more
Advance Doesn't Value Anyone Not Corporate Executives
If the economy is "Booming!" why are more people defaulting on their car loans than at the worst of the recession? Hint: Because the economy is not booming, despite what the talking head on TV says. A credit bubble is not an economy, and now it's... read more
...says the latest Advance Auto Parts post on LinkedIn. Um, no. That's what your boss wants you to believe so you will work hard and make them successful. A good worker bee who waits for recognition, advancement, and rewards that never come. What a... read more
What's more realistic? Frankly, I don't see a third option.
We men who have been laid off wonder how Advance has the extra time and money to fund a Women's Club that does charity work during business hours. How does this sell auto parts?
What a joke! They won't even go out and write a stock order for customers that are stocking dealers. Advance's definition of commercial business is supplying the local Quik Lube with a filter every now and then for an odd ball car that they don't... read more
Advance does a great job "buying" the competition vs being competitive thinking this is how to make more sales and be #1, however their inability to understand commercial business has taken its toll. Paying Billions of dollars to buy CARQUEST as a... read more
4 1/2 years into the purchase of CARQUEST and these MORONS still don't have a clue about the commercial business. They have turn the CARQUEST name into crap. All you got from DM'S up is a bunch of yes men who probably sit down when they go to the... read more
That horseshit provides an in-depth look at the employee mindset at AAP. Employees are submitting retarded ideas. Corporate suits are worried sick over the newest acronym on the spreadsheet. Keep it simple, stupid. It all boils down to part... read more
Is anybody surprised by the news that Mississippi distribution center is closing? I feel sorry for the nearly 300 folks who'll lose their jobs, but as AAP goes, this is now business as usual. It's more than clear that it's only a matter of time... read more
When a company is only willing to offer minimum wage part time positions, they are going to attract low end employees. Advance not doing back ground checks or drug tests anymore was a clear sign the company was only looking to save payroll dollars... read more
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.
Been pretty quiet around here lately.....Everyone must be excitingly waiting the merit increases......lol..
