Topics regarding layoffs at Advance Auto Parts Inc.
AAP and the entire car part market benefited from the biggest bubble in resto car prices ever. Loads of garages opening up specifically to make and sell resto cars drove parts market. Prices have been falling for around a year or so from crazy... read more
There are many things that make a company great. Likewise, there are others which dictate imminent failure. Some examples that will lead to the death of Advance Auto Parts are; *Failure to sincerely recognize people. You are just a number at AAP. *No... read more
As someone who is exposed to the store group payroll analysis, I noticed a large amount of payroll fluctuations in upcoming payroll. When I inquired thinking it was an error, I discovered these were payouts to retain our better store group performers... read more
A new initiative to reduce payroll will begin In P1 at the store personnel and management level. 1. Reduce bonus potential for CAMs and GMs. 2. Convert as many FT team members to PT as possible. 3. Increase DM store count to reduce number of active... read more
We the peons unite and except only those at top of the food chain at advance receive any kind of compensation, recognition. The rest of us get our hours cut, assigned extra tasks, and told to work harder and to prepare for more cuts to hours in 2018... read more
Will AAP still be in business at the end of December 2018? What chance do you give them?
The new pay plan punishes the top producers. My bonus will be half of what it was last year. The non-producers who never saw a bonus will benefit from the new compensation plan. You only have to hit 75% of GM target to make some money. Top producers... read more
Word on the streets is more Las Vegas stores are getting ready to close!!! Is it true?
When's the last time anybody saw a pay raise? All I've seen is the board of directors passing out stock to each other all year like they're Santa Claus. At the same time everybody's hours have been cut in the stores lowering our paychecks. This... read more
How many of you think that we are to far gone and will be prime for the buyout that's coming, or that interstate batteries will save us from certain doom?
Going to be interesting to see the reaction of commercial customers when all Advance locations stock Interstate Batteries in the spring.
AAP is now considered a takeover target (per Jim Cramer CNBC). Other than Carl Icahn, who would want to buy this train wreck?
How many of you CQ Independent owners have an exit strategy from AAP? Could be from retirement, health issues, or that Advance dumps you. I am weighing my options and have wondered what other owners may be doing. I was approached by another supplier... read more
Went on the site on my phone and it says *call *get directions *get a ride uber link maybe? The link would not work but check it out I have a screenshot but can't figure out how to post here
Do any Advance stores have a Christmas party for employees? I've had several of my people comment that the local carquest guys are having a party as they have always done at their store. Several of my drivers were invited but no one else.
Auto Zone and O' riles looking for good people! They treat you better!
A smart person sales the stock and invest else where! Good people let go and no thanks! No parts, put some in each store and deliver from any where, what a joke! Gas baby, gas, baby!
Has anyone else went to a 6 day work week? That's the new direction all the GM's received in my district. Effective immediately.
TG sees opportunity after challenging year at Advance Auto Parts. He believes Advance Auto Parts must become more focused on helping customers. Problems solved!!
When a company underperforms, they always cut payroll because it's the easiest thing to cut fast. But it always causes customer service issues and lost sales for months to come. Then they see even worse numbers and figure if they add hours to... read more
In my area(Maine) we've been given print outs of their customers purchases and pricing and told to go after them full bore.I don't like this,I don't think it will work,and will piss off the independents.The fact that we have access to all their info... read more
There is nothing in the works about eliminating the CSM or CAM position. They have plans put in place for the CAM position until 2020 I know of for sure. 20000 TNP accounts is one of the goals. Not sure where this poster got the info, but any chance... read more
As a longtime CAM, it’s the time of year where my customers start looking for Christmas goodies from their vendors. As usual, it becomes a bit of a competition between suppliers as the customers always throw in your face what your competitor did... read more
I really anticipate fiolettsk.rus to start happening once they realize their plan for an explosive 1st quarter has all but backfired. There is low to no availability on the most common of parts. The gas3 thing is a joke. The company is a joke. Sell... read more
So it was the first weekend since our GM told us our store was cutting back hours by 20-30 per week. Full-time partspros cut to 32 hours a week, part-time salesman cut to 10-15 hrs a week. We don't even have staff to function as a store now, had 2... read more
Well, today's 3rd quarter meeting here in Raleigh was a joke. The room, which is usually over-flowing with employees, was at only 3/4 capacity. Many of the senior leaders were missing. But Captain Potato Chip, otherwise known as the $28 Million Man... read more
It sounds like a mission statement written by a committee, where each member got to keep their favorite word. It is devoid of meaning and inspiration. I get no useful mental images from this word salad. Another symptom of a lack of clear focus and... read more
What's going on with GM pay? I heard there will be a change along with the cams early next year.
What’s the consensus on the new pay program? I don’t see any possibility of making more money. I can’t take another cut after losing a company car. Time to start looking hard.
Just take a look around the stores at all the vehicles sitting around that we don't have enough drivers for. What do you reckon this is costing the company? Of course if they hadn't cut so many labor hours we might have not lost some of these... read more
Don't think for one minute they closed the stores on Thanksgiving Day for the employees benefit. It's all about money and they are hurting right now because financially they are in trouble. They saved a bunch of money by closing stores on... read more
So corporate issues a travel ban for all field personnel today for the indefinite future. So that equates to zero sales productivity for the unforeseen future. Another nail. dumb--ses.
