Topics regarding layoffs at Advance Auto Parts Inc.
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

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 — read more
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

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

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
