Advance Auto Parts - Don't waste your time, the upper tier management doesn't care about quality or service.
Greco (the CEO) is nothing but a corn-chip vendor - useless troll. He tells everyone that it is about quality and customer service. Of course that is balderdash. It is about profit. Very short sighted. Looking for maximum quarterly dividends for the stock holders. The CEO effects profits on the back of the store employees. The regional management compensation/bonus structure encourages them to slave the $9.00/hr store employees who in turn can't multitask fast enough to provide reasonable service. The point-of-sale cash registers have a hopelessly outdated operating system and the employees are not afforded structured training on it. The training modules are garbage.
I do not intend to do business with them ever again but I will also divest myself of my scant interest in the company.
Have a look; 95% of their garbage is from China. The place is doomed to failure and deservedly so.
Reason of review: Poor customer service.
