I was a store manager for Advance Auto Parts in Wichita, Kansas. This is a terrible company to work for in this area. The district manager discriminates against women. I had just taken over a new store that was in very bad shape, when he was promoted to the position. He looked around my new store for 15 minutes, and then told me that the reason my store looked so bad was that I was "mothering" my employees. I quit after several more comments similar to this one. Three other store managers that were doing very good jobs were harassed until they left. There are almost none of the original employees left since Ben Cruz took over as District manager.
In addition, the parts quality is bad. Do not buy a battery from them!! You have a 50/50 chance of getting a bad battery, that will fail after a short time. The starters and alternators I sold are the same way. I would regularly have to swap them out for customers that had problems with them. My bin of defective returns was almost always overflowing. In short, this company has problems, both with their products, and with their employment practices.
