Advance Auto Parts is a horrible place to work. This is a company that has policies in place that promote “ Inspire, Serve & Grow“, in addition to “Honesty Pays”(this program was put in place to pay individuals to report alleged theft by employees.) The reality is a company driven through discrimination (especially minorities including women and customers alike), intimidation, deceit and the “Good‘ol Boys Club.” Locations that reside within “At-Will” states appear to be time portals that take you back to 1862. Management blatantly parade about, justifying their treatment of individuals with “At Will State” so as to ensure employees understand procedures. Should one attempt to follow the chain of command for legitimate concerns that can be backed by their own employee handbook, will be immediately labeled and brought full circle due to the level that these behaviors go. If one attempts to contact the “Team Member Hotline”, they will be directed to a outsource HR department that submit’s the complaint. You will then be contacted by the Actual Advance Auto parts HR department which will be conducted as an interrogation to debug and find proof that can not be disputed in court. At this point, termination will soon follow, backed by false and fabricated reasons.
These statements can appear to be harsh, but a modest search online will bring to light a pattern of conduct. It leaves one to think of how many other friendly faced companies conduct business like this in At-Will states?
This place is a damned joke, and they will get what they deserve when the stock price starts to fall once again, no one at the store level cares about selling your shitty assed item of the month,or any of the stupid acronyms. Why not get back to being a pretty good parts store and stop selling all the BS crappy China made parts? That would be too hard to do,not enough great team members left after the layoffs in Florida
