AutoZone — numbers matter, people don't!
First I want to say that thankfully, after the worse employment experience I've had in my 33 years I was blessed with an amazing job making more than twice what autozone was paying me. My wife and I just purchased a new home for ourselves and our beautiful 13 month old and the Autozone nightmare is behind us. But for those who are still living that hell I have to take a walk down memory lane and do them some justice. It's simple; at Autozone, number's matter and people don't. Everything is about how many "witts" the store has sold, how fast you answer the phone, check out challenge scores and other trivial garbage. 'Want recognition for treating people well? Ha! Look elsewhere! Not only was I forced to work the day my wife went into labor, I was unjustifiably dismissed when my child was 6 months old. I've converted 15 people in my neighborhood to dedicated Advanced Auto Parts customers. It wasn't hard really, Autozone did most of the work for me! I attended a work shop on servant leadership. Look it up if you get a chance. In any event, at our first class we had to describe our best and worse previous bosses. The Autozone boss I had was by far the least intelligent, least graceful, worse spoken, most inconsiderate and cruel person I've had the displeasure of sharing a work space with. I pray for this broken condom accident of speciman daily. She used to say racist things to our Latino customers to their face using a language barrier as a veil to hide her cowardice and bigotry. Cris, you know who this is and you know everything I'm saying about you is true. Also, the District Manager J.P. Nunez of the late Circuit City went on a firing rampage only to fill in the positions with his recently displaced Circuit City buddies. I can't say enough bad things about Autozone as I can't say enough good things about my current employer. To all those not employed, HANG IN THERE. Anything is better than working for this corporate demon. And for those of you still stuck there. WTF ARE YOU WAITING FOR? GET OUT OF THERE!!!
