    Somewhat of a Challenge if you are up to it.

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Cocoa, FL (US)

    ProsIt is a very hands on job and expect to get your hand dirty. You learn a lot in this position and the managers are always there to help guide you if you have questions. You meet a lot of interesting characters in this line of work. Overall not a bad place to work, there are a lot of opportunities to move up.

    ConsSome of the customers that come in are discriminatory because of gender. As a female, it was often treated inferior because the assumption is that women don't know much about cars. Depending on the location of the AutoZone, there can be very shady characters. Also there several occasions where I was sexually molested and obscene comments were made by the customers. Also expect to long hours and be extremely tired in dealing with angry people.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAlthough AutoZone's motto is the customer is always right, there should be a limit. People take advantage of that and they take even more advantage of the employees because the customer can get away with so much.

    Good co-workers, poor upper management

    Customer Service Representative (CSR) (Former Employee) Junction City, KS (US)

    ProsYou get to meet and interact with other car enthusiasts. %20 employee discount. I enjoyed my store manager and the majority of the other employees.

    ConsI had no consistent schedule. One day I'll close at 10:30pm after a 12 hour day and then the next morning I'll have to open or I'll get just a 2 hour shift in the middle of the day, wasting my whole day away. Upper management sucks- very stingy (with hours, pay, store supplies- floor mats in winter, broken ladders ect.), always asking more of employees and never congratulating for everything they've already done, too scared to fire bad employees that are harassing, stealing or slacking off and that puts more strain on the good employees and they end up quitting because they don't want to deal with the BS. Anyways that's how my store was. They told me there would be tons of free training available but no one in my store knew how to get it which was disappointing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSimple. If you care about your employees they will care about you. Stop keeping the bad ones and pushing away the good ones.

    A fair place to work.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsFour 10 hour days making up 40 hours and still leaving you three days off.
    Most supervisors easy to approach.
    Increases every 6 months pending a performance review until you've reached the cap out limit.

    ConsCertain parts of the year yield more mandatory overtime than others.
    It gets rather cold in the winter, so bundle up.
