    I worked at AutoZone full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Strong company values. Customer oriented. Cares about people. Good benefits. On the job training. Gained lots of management experience and professional skills. Was able to work with many great people and customers.

    Cons

    Unreasonable expectations to sell more and more. Upper management never satisfied. Very few weekends off. Was basically promised promotion after promotion until I got tired of empty promises and left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more flexibility in scheduling.

    Sometimes you don't get a break

    It would be nice if the pay were a little higher

    Pros

    Probably best pay in the industry, good benefits

    Cons

    One holiday still stands, Christmas. Unreasonable hours. No recognition for effort or accomplishment. Company wants managers who work hard but blend into the background. No standouts, no questions, no opinions, no input. there is no bench, and the unyielding enforcement of the inadequate scheduling software makes running the business nearly impossible at times. There is no bench and the stores are perpetually short handed which causes huge morale issues. The company does nothing creative or resourceful to address these issues and seems to be following the example of walmart. Overall a very oppressive employer.

    Pros

    Fair wages, good benefits, solid company.

    Cons

    Some disconnect between levels of management. Dome report numbers change after fact....no one has confirmed answer as what changes sre caused by and what they really sre for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More clear and defined answers on report changes. More consistency in directions; while in other areas realize different areas of the country respond differently to promotions...one plan does mot always eork across the board..

    Pros

    You get to learn more about cars and make a mad costumer into a happy one. They work with you schedule. It is a pretty easy job.

    Cons

    They expect you to be able to be able to do so much for such a low pay. It's not required for you to put a lightbulb or battery on another persons car but they make you go out there and do it. A bunch of the times you don't have much coverage when you need to get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should get more employees in every store. The managers should help out more.
