I'm a simple guy who loves cars. This used to be my dream job and I was more than happy here for years. Then things started to change. I'm not talking just about the layoffs and closings but the way employees are treated. Managers are acting like... — read more
I read a reply that layoffs were supposed to happen the week of 4/12. I’ve been keeping my eye on the site but so far there has been nothing said. Did a layoff happen and people are just remaining quiet or was it all just BS to get people worried... — read more
I see little to no chatter about layoffs, I'm hoping this means we're safe for now?
Are we now at a point where severance is so low that there's no point in even waiting to be laid off?
Do you think there may be small/medium/large Advance Auto Parts Layoffs 2021? Any news or rumors?

Four people have been laid off at my location today.All of them were solid performers, long time employees, guys that the company could rely on. Not that we haven't seen our share off layoffs in the past, and if we weren’t in these times I wouldn’t... — read more
I keep waiting for AAP to announce major furloughs - or in this case, most likely flat out layoffs - but so far all I've heard has been minor. Any ideas about what we can expect this week? I'm not under the illusion that we'll be spared. We all... — read more

What's the impact and what are your thoughts?
Do you know how many people work here and how many at the HQ at Roanoke?
all we've heard for over a year has been payroll %, run to the %; meaning pay people as little as possible; now, it's cut, cut, cut to the hours; make up your mind!! I guess they don't care about having one person in the store half the day while... — read more
Any ideas when/if there might come a time again when we are not constantly worrying about layoffs? I'm getting really tired of having to force myself into work because I'm dreading what might be waiting for me once I get there. Am I really stuck with... — read more
Do you predict that there will be Advance Auto Parts Layoffs 2020? Any news or rumors?
If you are considering leaving AAP - and let's be honest, who isn't - and can't make the final decision, then remove the possibility of layoffs from your consideration. Now, if you still think you would not be happy here, then you'll have your... — read more
Yes, let's move to an area with exploding traffic so we can all spend more time in our cars.
Pending Class Action Law suit is just around the corner. Line up because it's only time before GMs and team members find out that the Violations for meal breaks in California should have been paid to you. Problem went on for years and now the old... — read more
Does anyone know if we are moving our offices to a different campus? I was told we were moving to six forks possibly. Anyone know if it's true and timelines associated?
Why is OKTA down again? Anyone from IT here? Help tells me all is OK but it's not. Someone is lying but others can access OKTA... Hmmm
The Advance store in Longview, WA has quietly closed without an explanation or even a local news article. I just drove by it one day and the signs were off the building and paper was covering the windows. They just were not very competitive, this is... — read more

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

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
