Advance Auto Parts is headquartered in Roanoke, Virginia and is now the largest retailer of automotive replacement parts and accessories in the United States by store count after acquiring General Parts Incorporated in October 2013
I was never treated unfairly due to age nor did I observe it. The place has a lot of other issues, age bias was not one of them.
Different managers treat older employees fair and some treat them like they should not be working there. They also fail to take into consideration that most older employees would not be working if they didn't need too. Not all older employees only held positions in a auto parts store.
The specifically ask you on the job application if you are between a certain age bracket. If you are not they will not allow you to continue the application. Clearly age discrimination.
Together as one company, we're inspired to create safer and more efficient ways to manage medications and supplies across all care settings.
Rating this company is a two-part process, therefore difficult to wrap it into one rating. The employees are extremely nice and hlepful, but, due to the lack of decent benefits and no holiday pay ever unless you use a vactaion day for it, the employees are unhappy with the company in general. I have worked for them for over a year and have yet to find anyone whohas a good thing to say about the company. So, my rating would be: Age friendly - 5 Company reputaion with employees - 1
I haven't actually been able to speak to anyone from this company. I've received emails from a Pam Armistead requesting me to call, but she never answers, or returns calls. I suspect that the emails are mass-mailing, but she doesn't return my calls after seeing a video interview that would reveal my age (I'm 59).

They push out the older more seasoned officers for new inept security officers for less money.

After reading the comments by those who express their perspective of age related discriminating practices by more than a few employers, I felt very concerned for older workers that need/desire employment. I wonder if these employers understand that it is not just the revenue from young adults that keep them in business. I wonder how they would survive if the older generation would stop supporting their businesses. I also wonder if these employers understand the principle of sowing and reaping? I am grateful to your agency for providing the results of your survey and your commitment to provide older workers with reliable job leads.
