Company reviews
"Wolf in sheep's clothing"
Current EmployeeDistribution Associate
If you work at an Advance Auto Parts Distribution Center, be ready to sweat after your training week. You will sweat so much that you might lose a couple pounds actually, that is if you manage to make the bare minimum of acceptable scanning rates. There are many friendly faces around the warehouse, but your managers may be very uneducated in explaining Warehouse resources. There might be a lack of operable machines, which is ironic because the company supplies car parts and fulfills the needs of customers but cannot do the same in their very own Warehouse. By the time you receive your healthcare benefits, you may not even want to work there anymore unless it is the most financially lucrative option at your current disposal during a pandemic. They try to make up for the hot, and hard work with electrolyte popsicles and cookouts every other holiday, but maybe they should invest in A/Cs across the warehouse. I really do hope someday the warehouses can at least meet the standards of the stores they supply supply, but I won't be there to see it happen without drastic changes like... last month.
