AutoZone History

AutoZone was originally known as Auto Shack and was a part of the Malone & Hyde grocery chain.  The grocery was sold to the Fleming Companies of Oklahoma City and the name Autozone came to be.

In 1984, the chain had 194 stores in 13 states.  The company grew quickly in the 80s and had 513 stores in 17 states by 1989.

The company went public in 1991.

In 1995, the 1000th store was opened in Louisville, KY.

In 1998, the company acquired Auto Palace, TruckPro and Chief Auto Parts, which gave the chain over 150 extra locations.

There was currently over 4400 locations in 48 US states.  The Autozone corporate office is located in Memphis, Tennessee.

I felt it necessary to make a fake email account because I don’t feel comfortable at the moment sharing my information at this time.

But I have a serious complaint to make about a District Manager in my area.

I am not an employee but I am an AutoZone applicant that had met with this District manager quite recently on my third interview. I was warned about this District Manager for several reasons related to his decision making and behavior. I made it my objective to treat him with courtesy and respect, and the interview went very well albeit it was only around 4 minutes. During that time I answered a question of what I was familiar with on the job. I should not have said this for some reason, but I told him I had the chance to observe how the store functions for a short period on a night shift and that I really enjoyed it.

This was arranged with permission of the store managers and I was observing a family member who is an AutoZone employee at the time. I did not do any sort of labor that put my health in jeopardy. I also did not handle any sort of transaction during my time. I was really excited because I saw how inviting the store was. I merely observed, I watched.

The District Manager asked me several questions about it and I explained those circumstances briefly. As a result my family member, two managers, and another individual awaiting a promotion for their hard work and dedication have their positions at risk.. Involving write ups and possible termination. If I could take it all back I would. Now I don’t feel comfortable accepting a position at the store, my family member has caught a lot of frustration from his coworkers and that is directed back at home. This was a gross overreaction and an abuse of power. I don’t even know if I am able to trust AutoZone corporate individuals to look into this District Manager. The people that interviewed me and allowed me to observe are very realistic, kind, and hard working people. They do not deserve this, and they are praying this somehow blows over. I know it won’t be that simple.

This District Manager is known for having personal problems with store managers and certain shift employees and I believe that this attributed to this incident.

Please, if you could work on this issue with me and protect the rights of these employees and my possible future with the company I would appreciate it.

Thank you,

A Concerned Applicant.

I went to the store in miramar to purchase two coils for my vehicle on March 26,2016. The store had only one and they said they had one at another store. They told me that they would order it and I would be able to pick it up the next day at 9:30am. I payed for both at once.
I went the next day at 11:45am and one of the clerks told me that it hadn’t arrived yet. I asked why it hadn’t been delivered yet and I was told that the driver has to deliver other products first and that they did not know why he was late. I also asked if they can contact him and was told NO and if they had any idea when my product would arrive and was also told NO. The clerk had no interest whatsoever to help me get my product. I was scheduled for a business trip for today after I put the coil in that I am now late for. I feel that the way I was treated was unacceptable and should not be experienced by anyone else. They should have a better system for delivering parts because it causes an inconvenience for a lot of customers like my self.

My boyfriend and I are are very displeased, to say the least, with the Cynthiana, KY AutoZone store staff. We were getting parts for a Honda we bought for me to drive to and from school. Previously we bought a muffler for the Honda, of which they ordered the wrong part because apparently they didn’t know that Honda parts are different from some other cars. The manager did make right on it. We later ordered other parts for the car, of which they didn’t learn from the previous time to check the measurements, these parts were also wrong. Surely to goodness we are not the only two in this town who own a Honda as the sales staff should know measurements for foreign cars are different, but I digress. The car was sitting at Chuck’s Garage in Cynthiana and they needed the parts to work on it. The lady at Chuck’s Garage called and spoke to Steve, who she says he was very rude with her and proceeded to argue with her that the parts were right even though you could tell they weren’t from clearly looking at the AutoZone parts and the parts that came off the car. Steve also told her that she could not exchange the parts, that my boyfriend, who bought them, would have to exchange them. So, my boyfriend, who works 2/3rd shift, 14 hour days/6 days a week who had just gotten to bed had to pick the parts up from Chuck’s, go back to AutoZone, get the right parts, of which they didn’t have on hand by the way, and go back to Chuck’s. Chuck who needed the parts picked them up from O’ Reilly’s that had just opened in Cynthiana not to long ago. My boyfriend and I took the parts back to AutoZone, we spoke to Steve, who he says he was not rude with her at all was just telling her that what she had was the right parts, even though visually and clearly she didn’t. The store manager who helped us was nice at first, said he didn’t have the parts in stock but he could order them was under the assumption we were still willing to do business. My boyfriend said Chuck’s had the parts they needed already he just needed a refund. The store manager demeanor changed. He said there’s no telling where the parts are coming from, the quality of the parts, and the quality that Chuck’c does for that matter. Of which he didn’t know the parts came from O’Reilly’s. Meanwhile, while this was going on, we over heard a staff member, who had helped us out on the last mess up, say under his breath that, sometimes you just can’t help anybody. The store manger continued to degrade Chuck, a man and a business that has been in this town for 48 years! Not a lot of mechanics and garages can say that! As we were leaving, the store manger had said you all come back and see us now, I said as we walked out the door, no chance of that. Your employees maybe need to show a little respect for someone who has managed to stay in business for so long in a field that has a bad rap of ripping people off and not being trustworthy, and respect the quality of work he does. Your employees also need to show a little more of a respectful work ethic of not speaking under their breath while your customers are in their presence. If they have something bad to say about a customer, say it after they leave, because I am telling you nothing pisses me off more than a staff member who will display that kind of behavior. If you have something to say about a customer, in the presence of a customer, you need to be brave enough to say it to their face. It really made my boyfriend and I livid to hear your staff belittle another business in town, who if you think about it, the businesses go hand in hand. If there was any animosity towards my boyfriend and I for the parts coming from somewhere else other than AutoZone, than that also needed to be expressed after we leave, and not while we (the customers) are standing right there, basically trying to put some doubt in our mind about getting parts from somewhere other than AutoZone, and doubt about the quality of work that will be done, when we have taken several vehicles over the years to Chuck’s Garage. My boyfriend and I will no longer be returning to AutoZone. Why return to a store that cannot get the parts right, and that displays that kind of behavior and disrespect to the customers. We will be taking our business to O’Reilly’s as well as KOI. And if your staff is not careful, many others in this small town will follow suit, especially having somewhere else to go. AutoZone corporate really needs to get their employees in line and teach them work ethics, as well as knowing what they are talking about when it comes to what they are selling. Judging by the sad reviews here I am surprised you are still in business.

I have been going to the store on 775 NW 119 St North Miami, Fl
Autozone# 1245 for the past 18 years. I noticed some people just got hired there. I went there to return an item that was defected and exchange as well. The cashier was not friendly at all, and he did not allow me to ask him any question regarding some items wanted to purchase. His name is Peter J.

I called to place a battery order on hold @plank & choctow Baton Rouge, La. When my husband arrived the fat clerk was too busy flirting and trying to get d*ck from him to notice she had given him the wrong battery. The other female who was a manager was frustrated and just kept walking off from everyone with a line out of this world stating she was ready to go home. Maybe you all need to try hiring people that WANT TO WORK and who also pay attention to detail. Once my husband got home and realized it was wrong i called to speak with the manager. Hold time was about 7 minutes. Once i tried to give vin# for correct battery she interupted me and placed me back on hold. After about a 3 minute wait a man came to the line and stated that the fat hot in the pants clerk had given the wrong battery. Every time i use this location i have to come back at least once to swap out a INCORRECT PART. GET YOUR SLUTTY EMPLOYEES TOGETHER. SHEESH! If they were not so focused on trying to suck a d*ck then maybe they can get parts correct with a better wait time. This took place 3/5/16 @approximately 5:10pm. Thanks for making us waste time and gas like usually. Autozone’s customer service SUCKS A**.

My son worked for Autozone and really liked his job until he was transferred to the Chersterfield , Mi store. There he was belittled by the manager Cory continually. Cory is constantly on his personal cell phone during work hours buying & selling AUTOPARTS off eBay !!! My son did not have respect for a manager that wasn’t doing his job . The District manager knows what is going on and chooses to turn his back . I will NEVER purchase or recommend autozone to anyone who treats there employees like trash

I’ve seem to be having issues with this company they can have 5 employees working and still have to wait over a half hour to get service even tho I was the only person in the store and after I asked someone for help they would call someone else and that person would call someone else they just keep passing the buck until I finally left the store a little later my car broke down and I and my family had to walk home and find a tow truck this could have been avoided if the employees actually did their job

Jay I have has many good experiences at autozone. FIRST it’s a person’s responsibility a adult to do maintenance on there own person ell vehicle . Not blame it on any body else . Take responsibility for own actions. Ever think the car broke down because you didn’t take care of it in first place. So not to be rude , but why did your car mechanically break down. Yes some people work harder than others in this world. That’s just sucks..what is the five employees job you speak off ?

Hi,
I just wanted to post here because i can’t get in contact with any one any other way. The employees at Autozone on 180 w duncannon phila, pa 19120 have no kind of manners. I been flipped off by the manager literally when i approached him he said i didnt look like i was buying so he didnt want to waste his time. I have been cursed out several times by red shirts at this store. Also their drivers are unsafe. I have photos of one driver taking selfies while driving. Also the manager in the back of the store is rude. He tried to sell me Herbalife when i asked him to just worry about my parts he got upset and we began to argue back and fourth. He then said i should leave the store because he wouldn’t service me. I didnt know autozone advertised for herbalife and only speak to those who have dollars hanging off of their face.

A regional representative contacted me soon after and said they were going to take care of it. I haven’t herd from them since. I wrote the CEO once, what makes them think I won’t send another with a legal notice of litigation? This problem will not go away if you ignore it. I can promise you this. Mike

I bought a u-joint from your auto zone store in Dayton Ohio about a year and a half ago. The part has a lifetime warranty on it, but a warranty doesn’t do any good when the part is defected to the point that you have a part to return. Then on top of the fact that I was sold a defected part, the defected part cost me $2000 in repairs to my transmission. I don’t feel that it’s right that I have to pay for damages because your company is selling bad parts. I am currently looking into legal advice on this matter. I am a disabled mother that don’t have money to throw away. I feel like your company should try to resolve this matter and foot the bill for my repairs to my truck

Hello,

I just wanted to let HQ know about the behavior of a manager at the Vermont Ave store in downtown Los Angeles, near USC. What this manager, Marcos Solis, did is unbelievable and even though it’s been a month since the indecent, it’s still on my mind.

Long story short; the night before my morning commute, I had to deposit a dollar into the ATM so my $19 became $20 and I could withdraw it for gas money. On the way to work my water pump went out and after I limped my truck to the closest Autozone ,thanks to the Waze App, I remembered that I had a lifetime warranty on the water pump. To say I was relieved would be an understatement of epic proportions since I was flat broke and had no roadside assistance. I pulled the failed part off and exchanged it without issue but I needed silicone. I asked the counter clerk if there was any silicone he could share or donate. Maybe a tube had been returned, or maybe a loaner, I asked. The parts clerk literally laughed in my face. Laughed hard, too, saying ‘we don’t loan out silicone’ and continued his near hysterical and degrading laughter.

Unaffected by the immature treatment, I asked for a manager to once again ask for help. As Mr. Solis was listening to my story and plea for help, he noticed my rewards card on the counter, so he picked it up and scanned it. He no doubt saw my long history of purchases and without even a hint of disdain in his voice, he simply said, I’ll spot you, and he gave me a tube of silicone.

I thanked him and left quickly because the amount of liquid in my eyes was increasing rapidly, as it is now as I type this. That one gesture meant so much, took so much stress off my shoulders by not having to walk from auto shop to auto shop begging for gasket sealant, and helped me get to work where I was able to get two hours on the clock.

Ultimately, I could’ve lost my job if I hadn’t made it to work during my shift.

That level of customer service is rare in this jaded town. Extremely rare.

I live in St Louis, MO and frequent the Autozone on St. Charles Rock Rd in Breckenridge, MO 63114. I do a lot of business there, but last, I week needed a master cylinder for my 81 Chevy Monte Carlo, the guy said they didn’t have it in stock, but the Halls Ferry Store had the part, I drove down there they had one left, the guy pulled the part, and the master cylinder was in the box, minus the reservoir, that came with the part. My guess is someone returned it, only needing the reservoir. I drove all that way only to have to get it at another parts store. The only way I could get the part was to order it. A waste of time and a waste of gas. they need to check the returned parts, to make sure all the parts are in the box. Another thing while I was at the Halls Ferry store, people going in and out stealing stuff, as the thief detector at the door was constantly going off. Do your managers at that store just let people come in and out, and just steal what they need ? This is terrible, somebody needs to get a security guard and run these thieves down, no wonder the prices keep going up, as people just rob the store.

I’m at an auto zone 10020 albemarle road. After processing a warranty return for my brake pads he ask how I paid because it will go back to that card, I advised I didn’t have the card and he said nothing he can do already put back to card. I find this to be absolutely unbelievable that a big company like auto zone doesn’t have an option to refund debit cards via cash or at least place funds on a gift card but to just say oh well nothing I can do is unfair. Seems you can only pay in cash if your looking for a refund because if you no longer have the card you used you will not receive your refund from an item that is under warranty!! Feeling super ripped off!!

I worked for autozone before the only way you couldnt get cash back is if you paid with a credit card, check or used your debit as credit. so if you used it as debit as credit it will issue it to your bank. if pinned their system doesnt even give you the option as the cashier to put it back on the card

trying to reach anyone @ corporate that can resolve customer service issues… have been a customer of my local Auto Zone, Oakdale Rd here in Modesto. prior manager received a promotion creating a manager vacancy, here is the issue, the young man that has filled the position does not seam to understand customer service… he will sit in the back, refuses to help service counter customers & if he has assigned other employees to stock shelf’s he will not allow anyone to help counter customers… meanwhile customers have been 10 & 12 deep waiting for help. Calling the regional manager is of no help, store manager indicates he is personal friends of the regional manager… walking out & doing business @ another store does not resolve the Auto Zone problem. It is my hope someone can help resolve this daily customer service issue.

I recently placed my first online order with the app y’all have. I filled everything out, entered 2 promo codes and it showed they were accepted, at checkout I had a lower price, paid with my PayPal account, and then got an email of a higher price. After speaking to customer service which was no help, or couldn’t help, they told me only one promo code is accepted, I asked to of course then enter me the 20% off one and they again said they couldn’t. I am stuck with what was taken first, my only option is to return everything at local store an then redo which I will not waste anymore of my time. I have been a loyal customer for 20 years but as of today I will not shop with you anymore. As soon as this order comes in I will be returning everything with my rewards card to my local store. I seriously hope management gets a system in place so customer service can provide what they are there for,

Then he’s saying to employees that if I’m in the store he’s going to write then up for me parts is that a power trip I hear. Well If he band me from the store I will going to the local news with it and to see what else they can help me out with maybe.

Muliagatele Mark Paul October 27, 2015 at 11:50 pm

Dear AutoZone,
Please allow me to introduce myself, I am Muliagatele Mark Paul, Managing Director of Gold Star Co Ltd of Apia, Samoa. Our family company (owned & operated) was incorporated in 1928 and amongst other interests operate Gold Star Auto Parts & Accessories, Samoa.
Gold Star Co. Ltd is working towards improving its products and services offerings in the automotive aftermarket to meet the quickly evolving changes and demands in the Samoan market. Even after almost 90 years we are acutely aware that change is constant and that we have to do more than keep up if we want to remain and be leaders in the automotive parts & accessories business in Samoa. We are keen to realize a commitment to establish as quickly as possible a next gen auto parts store.
Samoa is a small island nation in the South Pacific but the market dynamics are the same as in the significantly larger markets. The big point of difference however is that our market is small by your standards and is very price conscious given our low GDP per capita of approximately USD$4,212.36 for a population of 180,000.
We have been sourcing our inventory directly/indirectly from manufacturers in the USA, New Zealand, Australia, Japan, China and others but supply logistics and order processing/delivery lead-times from these multiple sources is always a challenge. To enable us to manage this process better and meet the changes and demands of our market, it is crucial and urgent that we seek a business partnership arrangement with a reputable company like AutoZone……“the leading retailer and a leading distributor of automotive replacement parts and accessories in the US”.
Recently a family friend & competitor who is the owner/operator of Samoa Spare Parts approached and were offered the Carquest brand for Samoa (formerly Western Samoa) through an affiliation with Carquest San Diego (Hawthorne Power Systems). Carquest have established affiliations outside of the mainland USA, in Guam, Saipan and American Samoa (a US Trust Territory) through Hawthorne Cat (Hawthorne Power Systems) and have decided to carry this model through to Samoa.
In light of this, it is critical to our business and its growth, to find and enter into a business relationship with a leader in the US Auto Parts retail industry. I believe that AutoZone is the leader from whom we can source and consolidate our supplies out of the US West Coast. This will enable us to benefit from the economies of scale that would come with such an affiliation. AutoZone, who are “committed to providing the best parts, prices and customer service in the automotive aftermarket industry”, is an exciting prospective partner we wish for.
We would look to AutoZone as the primary source of most products and for assistance in planning, shop layout & fit and with the implementation of strategies to present and promote AutoZone & Gold Star actively in our marketplace with a Next Gen store.
Since the road rules changed here in 2009 with the switch from left hand drive to right hand drive vehicles, the number of vehicles being imported into Samoa has increased exponentially for both new and Japanese Used Models. Obviously, the supporting industries have also grown as a result. In the current conditions, we know that Gold Star can do so much more in the growing and competitive auto parts aftermarket. While we now have RH drive vehicles in the majority, most parts are interchangeable with those of LH drives. OEM and Brand part numbers can now be readily crossed and any that cannot be sourced from the USA we would continue to buy from current suppliers. I estimate that initially 60-70 percent of our inventory could be sourced AutoZone.
I am sincerely hopeful that AutoZone will give serious consideration to what I am proposing and I am confident a relationship will result in mutual benefit and satisfaction and give the AutoZone brand access and presence in our market and the South Pacific.
Sincerely
Mark

PS: To whomever in AutoZone that receives this email, please forward on to management concerned with distribution and export.

I recently applied at one of your locations at 505 N. Oak Pearsall,Tx. I got a call from them and the manager sounded pleased that I spoke spanish fluently. Well when he realized that my son was working there he told me he would have to check with his colegue about it and would call me right back. I thought I had a chance since he did not call back. Well I went in to find out the statice, he told me No. Just cause my son worked there. Come on if this was going to be the problem, why doesn’t it state on the application if you are related to someone working for Autozone that you would not be consider for the postion??!! He wouldn’t even consider on a split scheduale. Come on,in this small town everyone is related to each other one way or another. But I hope, that for my son this comment will not affect him at work.

Had a horrible experience in this shop. The so-called “store manager” that was on duty today,Lance Boyd, denied my refund ($55 headlights) on the grounds that the item was used. Yes the pack was open, but the headlights inside were still mint. He calls himself trying to point out to me some dust on the bulb to indicate it was opened.Called regional support to get the refund pushed through but to no avail. I think he knew he was wasting his time with me because he laughed in my face once he got back to the register to tell me how I wouldn’t be getting my money back, even though I purchased the item less than twelve hours ago. It is absolutely ridiculous that a multinational corporation such as Autozone, which is built on the loyalty of it’s customers, would refuse to refund an item to the very consumer that has helped it to grow from the ground up. With all the money these people make daily,one would think that the manager of all people would at the least make an effort to provide good customer service, or even at the very very least provide a credit of some sort to make up for my own mistake in purchasing the wrong product, but shopping at the this joke of an establishment to begin with. I have returned other items at this Autozone and different ones in the past. Let’s see just how long they keep customers treating them this way. And Tammy Hamilton, as the DISTRICT MANAGER of this establishment should be ashamed at the type of buffoons she employs in her operations. Lance seems like the type of guy who was only promoted because he refused to quit and move on to better work. Guess some people just feel good disrespecting those that are directly responsible for putting money into their paychecks. Shame on autozone

Hello, I am a former employee at autozone in Thornton, Co. The job didn’t work out for me due to personal issues concerning my family. I worked 3 days total. You are supposed to get paid training from attending the orientation on 84th ave and Huron st. I have never received payment for 8 hour orientation. I have repeatedly called my old store manager and corporate. Corporate tell me to contact my store Manger and my store manager tells me to contact corporate. I am sick of this cat mouse game. I just wanted my pay for orientation and it has been very difficult to get a response on when they can compensate me. Autozone is not a good place to work considering they don’t bother to pay their employees correctly.

I have always shopped at autozone . But my experience yesterday morning 10/13/2015 brought me to almost tears. Went to this location at Chimney rock by hilcroft to return a freon I don’t need. There was two gentle men in front of me as they left is my turn. I met this guy Jonny pickens and explained to him the reason I’m returning the freon. I have my recipe on me, he did not ask for it instead, he said to me well, but I did not observed you walk in with any thing on your hand. Evidently, I must have stolen the the freon. Boy, I said excuse me can you repeat that and he did. I said you just accused me of stealing from your store just now and he was starring at me. I said how can I steal it if I have my recipe on me. At that point I showed him my recipe and he proceeded to refunding me . But I objected but one gentle who was very shocked at what he said to me volunteers to refund me my money. Before I left, I requested for phone numbers of his bosses and he gave me a number to this sarcastically guy called Stepleton . I put a call through to their head office and filled a complain , but no feed back or return phone call yet. Tells you how they care bout their costumer. I’m still waiting for any phone call. If they do or don’t, I’ll come back here and post it

Im extremely upset and completely dissatisfied with autozones customer service. I went to the autozone located on 2277 alum rock ave san jose ca and took a Duralast battery to be recharged. I left it at 11 am and was informed to pick it up in an hour, I wasn’t able to pick it up at that time and picked it up at 7 pm. I took the battery and put it in the car and guess what? Yes, it was TOTALLY DEAD ( they told me the battery was good when I picked it up) Obviously they didnt charge the battery, I was able to jump start it with a portable charger. I called the store and asked for a manager, Angel put me on hold, and the manager never answered. I hung up and called again, finally Juan (the manager) answered. I explained to him what had happened, and his answer was ” the battery probably didnt hold the charge” He didnt help me at all, didnt offer an apology or even a solution for my problem. It would have been courteous of him as a manager to say “im sorry for what just happened, bring the battery back i will make sure the battery is fully charged” However I received a shrug on the shoulder. Do they really have proper training on how to treat their costumers? It is obvious autozone employees can care less about their customers.

Dear Sir/ Mam,
I have recently applied for your company, I was informed I did not meet the criteria, or expectations you seek in employment. I have been at my current job for almost 20 years, I am just looking for a part-time job, my question to you is I was informed by your current manager, in Newton, Ks.67114, that I did not pass your assessment test. Have not ever been through a process like this, and was told I was not up to par, for an interview. My question to you , is what are your expectations for an applicant. Please, let me know for a lesson learned for my future applications.
Sincerely, A.R.Whillock

I will NEVER shop at an AutoZone again. The return policy is completely terrible. I purchased a part with a debit card that I no longer have and they returned my money to that card. When I told them this the answer I got was there’s nothing we can do about that and didn’t even offer another solution to my problem. Horrible customer service. The lady who took care of me acted like she’s too good to be working there and her facial expression when I walked through door made me want to turn around and leave. I’ll never shop at autozone again.

On Saturday September 26th 2015 i went to the store #6616 located in Yabucoa P.R because i have to do a change of air bag suspension to regular coils springs to my 2000 Ford Expedition i bought a hydraulic jack combo.The part number for this product is T82453 and the store have that in special that day for $44.99 plus tax that i found is a good deal. I went to my home to start my small project and as soon i start lifting my car the back wheels of the jack bended the screws and for the safety of my kid and i take out the jack out and put back in the box and returned to the store. The first think in the store was a employee with red shirt start arguing with me that is not the correct jack for that truck and i already tell him i am doing a simple job with raise the car one side at the time and that function do not affect because the jack is for raise 2 1/4 Ton and that is enough just for lifting one side of the car. My other concern was the lady with gray shirt that i think is some kind of “manager” tell me right away the only think i can do for you is change the jack because you already used i my answer is i think I bought this is for used if not I don’t buy nothing but i just ask for my money back because i do not feel safety with that jack and she tell me she can’t do that because she’s not allowed to do that the only thing she can do is give a card with money and I refuse that because I don’t need nothing more and the other thing is call the main warehouse to give me another but I don’t want the jack because I don’t feel safe with this article.

I Just write this because i feel no secured with something i do not used and the people that work specially in that store need a little bit of training on how found a better way to manage customer when the people return stuff to the store and do not start arguing with the customer i just live about 5 minutes from that store and i tell right now i never put a foot on that store again only for tomorrow to pick my new jack and as soon i receive i go put on ebay to sell it

I would like to say that the two clowns working at the AutoZone in University Place, WA near 27th and Bridgeport are complete idiots and don’t belong in the automotive field at any capacity at all. I went in yesterday at about 130 to get a quart of oil, a transaction that requires nothing but me grabbing the quart of oil and paying. That’s why I hate this autozone. Rude, pushy idiots. I was getting close to socking the old guy with the beard in the face after he got aggressive with me when he asked me how my day was and I told him fine. He seemed really pissed off at me because I only wanted to buy a quart of oil. When I said my day was fine he looked at his buddy then back at me and laughed for no reason, in an incredibly insulting manner. So I asked them what was so funny. and the guy went on a tangent about how great his day was. This whole interaction delayed my sale. I just wanted to leave but these two incompetent jackasses wanted to joke around with me. I don’t care about their inside jokes or whatever. I want to get my auto parts and get back to work. I am an automotive professional with a degree and demand the respect that I deserve when purchasing anything in an autoparts store. I am never shopping autosone again. This particular location has been so bad over the years, I can’t believe it’s still open. I might go back just to kick this guy’s ass on camera. Idiots.

VERY RUDE store manager, Andres at Inglewood, CA location on La Brea. Went into the store to ask for help hooking on my windshield wiper and because it was raining he said he couldn’t help me because he didn’t want to get sick. I am a female with a truck and couldn’t reach it and didn’t know how to do it! A courteous customer came out and helped me! Something that literally took 10 seconds and Andres refused to help! I will never go to this location again! Poor service and training for a store manager!

I recently took a trip from Erie, PA.to Abilene Texas to pick up a 1972 Chevelle my son (who is in the Air Force) bought. On the way there, my 2004 Chevy Avalanche started to overheat around Conway, Missouri and just got the truck off the highway before the temp gauge was in the red. Being a Chevrolet Technician for over 35 years I brought plenty of tools to in case of a breakdown. Unfortunatley for us(my son in law, also a Chevy Tech) the closest auto parts store was 13 miles away. My son in law got on his cell phone and called the first parts store on the list who had my part but could not deliver to us. He then called the Autozone store in Marshfield, Mo. and told him our situation and he said he would bring the parts as soon as his other employee showed up. So I paid over the phone and we proceeded to remove all the parts needed to get the waterpump off. Within an hour the manager of the store drove up and delivered our parts plus some hand cleaner an towels. This man went above and beyond to help us stranded on the side of the road and has my thanks & gratitude. We were back on the road within 2 1/2 hours and made it to Texas and back with my son’s Chevelle.

I went into your 777 Blanding Blvd, Orange Park, FL 32073 location to purchase a battery. I was told they would not and could not install my new battery. Not only did they say this but would not lend me the tools to install myself. They only suggested I use the Firestone store down the street and pay them to install the battery?…lol. If I have no battery in my vehicle, how in the hell am I going to make it to the Firestone and why did you refuse to lend me tools? I have always used autozone but will not ever use them again and will publish my complaint I. Any and all local publications! You should hire real men not pansies!

I don’t know if this story has gone national but you can see it at azfamily.com and click on 3 on your side. It aired 8/18/15.
A small family business in Prescott Valley Arizona received a letter from Autozone that they must change their name. Autozone claims they have the rights to the “zone” portion of the name when it comes to auto parts businesses. The Prescott Valley business is named CycleZone Motorsports and Marine.
Apparently Autozone customers are so stupid they will be confused by the “similarity” of the name.
Does this mean O’Reilly’s, Napa, Pep Boys, etc. will all have to change their name because they have “Auto” as part of their names? Oh, wait a minute; maybe Pepboys is the only one who should be able to include “Auto” as part of their name! They were started in 1921 by 4 Navy buddies. Napa started in 1931 and O’Reilly’s in 1957. According to the information above, Autozone didn’t start using this name until 1994.
Maybe one of the other big 3 will send Autozone a letter demanding they change their name.
SHAME ON YOU AUTOZONE!!! I WILL NO LONGER SHOP AT YOUR STORES.

I saw a piece about Autozone harassing a mom and pop business because they had Zone as part of their name. How utterly ridiculous can you be? Try to Google businesses with Zone in their name and you will get 100’s if not 1000’s of businesses. Are you going after them all? Your business only survives because of the business you get from regular people like me and millions of others. No longer. It’s time for corporate America to get real or get out of business. That will only happen when we stop doing business with you. That starts today.

I recently went to the AutoZone and I specifically asked what transmission fluid is the correct one one to put in a 1995 Mercedes benz. The brand they gave me blew up my transmission. And I asked him twice was he sure and he was very positive about which one it was. Does that mean they are going to replace my transmission?

I want to let you know that you have a great émplee in your store in Missouri City, Texas. His name is Julio Ybarra. He was very professional,courteous and kind. Auto zone was recommended to us by our son. We had never traded or bought anything there. We were having battery problems, so we decided to take our car to your store. Julio tested the battery and told us it would take time to charge it. We decided to wait. There was no place to sit in the store, so he went to the back and got two chairs. He determined that we did needed a new one. He sold us a new one, installed it out in the heat (98 deg) with a positive attitude the whole time. He thanked us with a smile. Employees like that need to be commanded.

To whom it may concern,

I want to take the time out report how great of an experience I had yesterday at AutoZone store number 2407. Yesterday morning began as a challenging day for me. I missed my doctor’s appointment that I had waited weeks for because my car wouldn’t start. I just sat in my car and cried. I was extremely hurt and shock my car stalled starting resulting in me missing my appointment and confused because I had just brought a battery from this location a year ago. I was advise to get my alternator and battery check and I did. I was extremely nervous because it had been raining and I didn’t think anyone would be able to check. When I went in the store it stopped raining but was very busy. Aresha was at the counter and she acknowledge everyone (and believe me it was a lot of us) who came in and really showed great customer service. Another young lady and I came in for the test (which is a free service) and she made us feel like we were spending millions at the store. She really treated all the customers whether they were getting a free or paid service like they were valued. As a women I hate coming into stores like this because it is quite intimidating. It felt really empowering to see an educated women who not only knew her stuff but respect and treat everyone like guest in her home. Not only did she value me as a person but she valued my time. She made sure that everyone in line problem was tended to in the order in which they came. I left knowing that my battery and alternator were fine and that if I ever need to go to an AutoZone I will drive all the way to store number 2407.

Loyal Customer,

Sharonda L. Walker

PS. Aresha is an excellent employee who models your saying, “Autozoners always put customers first! Going the extra mile for you.” She definitely gets my vote for a raise and promotion.

Its very unfortunate that I have not heard back from the Auto Zone corporate office in regards to the wrongful termination that was racially induced by their subcontractor in the on the Waterloo Il. Auto Zone property on 7-15-2015. I have filed a charge with the EEOC in this matter and continue to research my options in this matter. I had figured that I would post here on their public site my concerns in a cry out for prompt attention to the matter. I guess I have to now do the leg work to find out who to email, who to leave messages with as we all know this will only start the cat and mouse game and take up more of my much needed time while trying to over come my humiliation and also interfere with my daily job search process, as well as my informative internet searching as I continue to educate myself on law suites and remedies for racial discrimination and job termination. I still at the point in the fight have not released the subcontractors name to the public but I have posted the video of the termination on utube exposing the situation to the public. Today again I ask that Auto Zone contact me in regards to the situation and so that I can privately release the name of the contractor / vendor to their head office in the hopes of them addressing this issue. Being that Auto Zone is considered a joint employer the suite could or could not include the corporation its self. Rather it could im still in the dark on that but id much rather use my time to educate my self on the legal logistics of this case rather than start a cat and mouse game with emails and phone calls. My email is as stated on this blog. I look forward to speaking with the correct enforcement on this matter as well as speak about what I know to be the truth about the scab work being done to remove the mold in these and many other stores.

A multi million dollar franchise should be a lot more helpful with its potential customer. I went to Auto Zone in trenton Nj to get my check engine light read and the reader had a broken screen. Instead of opening one they already sell and helping me out so I can purchase the part right there,they told me that they couldn’t do that.they have to jump thru hoops to get a new reader.
I then went to a local small business and the person was so helpful, he grabbed a reader right out of the box and diagnosed the problem for me.long story short,my business is now elsewhere.

I as of yesterday worked for a commercial vender that was hired to paint and remove mold damage from walls at the Auto Zone stores across the country. I worked for the vendor whom at this time I am not releasing the name of, for three weeks before getting a prompt promotion to foreman as he was totally impressed by my skills and work ethics as well as the positive report that the managers gave of me. I had never meet the owner of this vending company prior to my promotion. Once I did meet the owner on my fourth or fifth week of working my butt off for him our relation ship turned 180 degrees since I was a man of color. I have this vendors racist text messages and I have him recorded on my cell phone at the time of termination do to the fact that I wanted to go across the street away from Auto Zone to speak about me being offended by his Text, Words and his unfear treatment of me after seeing my skin color. I am hoping that Auto Zone dose not reflect the same image as the vendor they have contracting for them. I am not calling to report the vendor I am waiting to hear from Auto Zone In regards to the scab work and racial discrimination that took place at there Waterloo Il. store on 7/15/15.

I have a complaint about the Autozone store manager. I believe his name is Jermey Robinson. But I am a coworker there and today was the first time I have ever been mistreated (felt like a slave). Autozone store 0619. I came into work at 9:00 a.m. and I worked until 2:00 p.m. 5 hours into my shift I asked for a 15 minute break. My manager okay-ed it for me. I bought a candy bar which was the only thing that I have had all day. I went outside because our store is very busy throughout the day. I came back inside not even 3 minutes into my 15 minute break to answer the phone. My exact words were (“Thanks for calling Autozone my name is Greg, how can I help you”.) The very first thing the GM said (Jermey) was that I need to answer the phone faster. I replied (“I’m taking my 15 minute break and was outside. Jermey then stated “What you don’t get a 15 minute break”. I said yep sure do. The GM then hung up on me came into the store and came straight up to me with an aggressive attitude saying. “You don’t ever answer my phone like that again, and you don’t get 15 minute breaks you work 6 hours and only take a lunch if you work past that and that’s it. I then replied okay I’m sorry. If I didn’t need this job my response would have been totally different because I don’t care who you are, you’re not going to treat someone with so much disrespect. I was very irate over this and I even stayed an additional 3 hours without taking a lunch just to help out our short handed store. Now I understand why it’s hard for Autozone to hire and keep people. Especially when you have GM like Jermey Robinson.

I have been reading all the post on various links and they are “right on”.Except for the satisfied customers(I believed were paid to post). Mainly batteries and customer service seems to be the problem
Today I was in a store on Fm 78 in Converse ,Tx. I dealt with the store manager J. Male. Jeremy or Joseph. I was returning a battery of there’s that was a couple weeks old. After the first 2 days this battery left me stranded. I went in to a car dealership to have my alternator checked. It’s all good! The store manager tried to blame it on the car. Biggest problem was he was humiliating me in front of his fellow employees and grinning the whole time. You know, the buddy system i got your back dude! I explained to him i was a Disabled Vet with a brain injury. I. Asked if he treats all Vets this way. He kept yelling at me saying i don’t like HIS batteries and store and all. Then after he learned of a brain injury he proceeded to pull the switcharoo on the return battery. Handed me a battery with lower cranking amps said the store gave me the wrong battery for the price. He was clearly trying to take advantage of me. He should be looked at and fired along with all the other employees playing along. There were witnesses in the store. I hope that one of them video taped this and puts it on Facebook and it goes viral. Who knows? Female witnesses were all I needed.I can see clearly contacting Corporate won’t. do any good. We fight to give this jerk freedom of speech and he spits in my face.
Auto Zone has lost my business. They really don’t. care. There’s. suckers everyday to replace the ones they lost. I believe in Karma, soon his day will come.
Auto Zone , shame on you for letting your employees treat customers like this.This is a great opportunity to make an example out of this store manager in front of other employees.

I’ve been out storm chasing for the past 9 days and on my way back from Chicago to Dallas my battery light popped on. I stopped into the store #2370 (395 Missouri Av, St. Robert, MO) this morning and the gentleman behind the counter came out and checked my battery and alternator. Come to find out the alternator was not working properly. He said they could order one and it would be here between 6:00-6:30pm. I came back to the store and my new alternator was here on time. I spoke with Marcie, store manager and asked it I could do the work in the parking lot. No problem. I had to buy a set of ramps to put my Miata high enough so I could get underneath it. Marcie asked me several times if I needed anything to drink which was so nice. They came out and checked on me a couple times and even loaned me a couple of tools to allow me to finish the work. After I complete my replacement I returned my old alternator core. I asked Marcie if they would like keep the ramps in case someone else may need them in the future as I had no way to take them with me. She was so nice to offer me a complete refund of the cost for the ramps. Afterwards she said I could use their restroom to get all the grease off my hands. I once again thanked her and her staff for making this Georgia boy feel right at home. I would highly recommend using AutoZone for anyone who needs help with your car.
Thank you so much,
Brian Harrison

You are loosing alot of buisness in Amarillo, Texas ,, blvd store. They need a cashier to check people out that just run in for something,, but noooooo you have to wait forever for someone to be done looking up stuff for other people. A cashier is kinda a necessity, i left and wont be back.

I have been a customer of Autozone since the early 1990s. I lived in Kentucky at that time. Fast forward to today, 2015. I took a manager position at my local AZ store in Natick, MA 7 months ago. I have learned many bad things about this company and the poor treatment of their employees. You cannot inspire your employees to love their jobs if you don’t treat them as a valued
person. Recently, we had a woman come in from
the Framingham, MA store to get some brake
rotors. There was a small mistake and she lost her mind. I got blamed for another managers mistake. She went outside and called the police. What moron. In retrospect, i believe that there is much more to this. I believe she has had poor service and been disrespected before. It all adds up. AZ reputation is pretty bad overall. I left this company.

I went to auto zone in Philadelphia 3300 of Aramingo ave for a 02 sensor ,they had one left
before I purchased it I wanted to look at it ,opened the box and it was not in plastic and had grease on the sensor …I told him I don’t want a used part and went to a different store to get the sensor. I told the manager ,they really did not care . So before you buy look at your stuff

I recently complained about a employee who stands in the doorway of your campbellsville kentucky store and smokes when I get ready to walk into your store he will exhale a large puff of smoke and step to the side after my first complaint I was contacted by a woman who said this was not company policy she was regional director and said she was sorry this would be taken care of immediately . Well ha ha I guess she has no control of any one at the campbellsville store because this has not c hagen ed I went there to get brake rotors for my van and there he was standing in the doorway smoking I tried to get a picture for you but he stepped back in before I could do so this display tells me that these people have no respect for the person that is supposed to be in charge advance auto is directly across the street they do not blow smoke in your face when you walk in the store . I hope u take the time to read this thanks . Steve 270 572 6357

I work with Autozone, and I have had a very bad experience with a new store manager that has been placed in my store. She immediately assumed she knew everything about me and my co workers, and had a 30 minute conversation with our old store manager about all of us and “the good, bad and the ugly”. It was in my opinion very offensive and unnecessary to do on company time. She has also made several different comments to me about things that have made me feel extremely uncomfortable.. as an employee of Autozone I feel that this is something that needs to be fixed with management.. if the behavior continues I will end up leaving for harassment.. I love my job and always have.. but this has crossed so many lines.

This is the worst customer service ever. I bought a new battery and had to wait 30 minutes for the AZ employee to even start working on my Rav4. There were 5 employees working at 3:30 pm with at the most, three customers. I asked repeatedly when my battery would be installed. I kept hearing, “in a minute Ma’am.” When the employee finally started working, he stopped several times, once to gawk at a lady who needed her battery checked (she was taken care of immediately). There are so many bad comments on this site about Auto Zone. I can see why. It’s a pity no one is doing anything about it. Obviously, the owner cares about money and nothing else. This is my last time purchasing any products from this establishment.

Someone needs to visit the Autozone in Barboursville WV. The employees don’t know who to listen to there. The District Manager keeps over ruling what the Territory Manager wants done. Plus the employees have been told if they complain to anyone they will be terminated. No one there cares about anything anymore. They all feel threatened. Just thought you would like to know.

I went into the Auto Zone store (#1495 on Texas Parkway, Missouri City, TX )because my car battery was acting funny in my CLK 320. There was a young man there by the name of Antonio Simpson that went out of his way to assist me by taking my battery out of my car to test for the efficacy of the battery. However, in my opinion Mr. Antonio Simpson acted more like the manager than the actual manager (Irving A.). The part that really hurt me the most was the manager’s attitude towards me when I asked for a chair while they were charging my battery that took almost 1 hour. I have a heart condition and herniated disc and I can go outside to the 100 degree weather. Initially, Mr. Simpson told me that he could give me a chair to sit while waiting for my battery but when I approached the manager (irving A.) with so much attitude, he refused without any reason and then ran after Mr. Simpson not to give me the chair. I was on my feet for the whole duration and experienced so much pain. When it was time to put back my battery, even though, Mr. Simpson did not have to do it but he crawled inside my car (battery in the trunk) to install the battery through the backseat. He drove me to tears for his kindness and I thank God that he was the one that assisted me that day and not the Mr. Irving A., Store Manager. Mr. Simpson showed excellent customer service and went above and beyond his duty as a sales associate. I believe he should be the Store Manager and Mr. Irving A. needs to go back for training on how to treat customers. In my opinion, Mr. Irving A. should not continue to be the Store Manager. Thank you

My order receipt clearly states a 01 alitma and you guys send me dodge caravan…somewhere along the assembly line …someone fucked up…pardon my frustration. I have lost $200 because I can’t handle my business accordingly. So I called auto zone the day I received the wrong damn hitch 6/5/15 at 130pm….spoke to Daniel 4788….he stated that he will email a return label as well contact the manufacturing company and get me my part overnighted to my local auto zone. I AM LOSING MONEY BY THE DAY!!! Daniel stated he would call me back…well 455pm rolls around no call..I call again and Daniel basically tells me I have to wait my turn AS IF I DIDNT ALREADY PAY MY HARD EARNED MONEY AND WAIT FIVE DAYS FOR WRONG DAMN PART!!!! Daniel insisted that he will call me back before 9pm central time closing hours…..NEEDLESS TO SAY HE LIED….never called…I’ve been up since 6am eastern time awaiting for autzone to open. Now today I speak with Jesus 6324..who stated it take 24-48hrs for the manufacturer to contact them back (MORE MONEY LOST)…he then tells me their backed up fixing others orders….WELL I SUGGEST YOU AUTZONE FIND OUT WHY YOUR FACTORY IS FUCKING UP SO THAT PEOPLE CAN GET THEIR CORRECT ORDER IN A TIMELY MANNER AND WITHOUT FEELING LIKE I NEED TO GO TO THE BACK OF THE LINE …YOU GUYS MESSED UP..I SHOULD BE TOP PRIORITY ….YOU GUYS MESSED UP ..JUST GIVE ME PART OVERNIGHT SO I CAN STOP LOSING MONEY …YOU RECEIVED MY PAYMENT WITHOUT A DOUBT….POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE…THEY WERE NOT VERY INFORMING AND SECURING AND LEFT ME HANGING ABOUT MY MONEY OR MY PRODUCT….IM SO MAD IM TYPING IN ALL CAPS…SO NOW I TOLD JESUS..I WILL CALL AND STALK THEIR ASSES EVERY HOUR ON THE HOUR..I WILL SEND MASSIVE EMAILS AND CALLS TO THE COOPERATE OFFICE..I WILL EVEN CONSULT MY LAWYER …THAT GUARANTEE….WASNT THAT AT ALL AND IM LOSING MONEY BY THE DAY BECAUSE OF YOUR TERRIBLE SERVICE …

I shop strictly Auto Zone, even though Advanced Discount Auto Parts is next door. I ordered a pair of brake rotors for a 78 mustang 2 mach1 on a thursday they arrived at the store Saturday. The boxes looked as if they were dropped from a plane they had more tape then cardboard and both rotors were damaged. So I re ordered them it arrived Tuesday two boxes one empty one opened the one that was un opened was taped closed and empty, both boxes were taped together .The manager at the time was a real “Ass” I said to him wow ya know this is the second time for one order.Oh I’ll just ordered it again. He said fedex is to blame I said well say something to the driver.he was like ya whatever. So he ordered them making remarks the whole time like its no big deal so i said go ahead give me a refund.and he tells me good luck finding your parts when you’re done looking we will have them for you “Really” I went next door to Advanced Discount Auto Parts and will have them tomorrow morning. I have had several problems with this managers attitude. I stopped shopping that store and went to one further away. Recently i noticed i hadnt seen his vehicle at the store and went back.Nope he still works there.You lost a very good loyal customer and my family you are not only losing my business lots of my friends have projects they also work on they complain about him also.the store#09458 managers name “Joseph ” this guy has cost your company Alot of Money from me and my friends this isnt the only incident either.Thank you, Scott Lawrence

I called the Duluth, Ga store on Creek Rd. to ask if they stocked Pennzoil Synchromesh manual transmission fluid. The clerk said, “Pennzoil what?” I said, “Synchromesh manual transmission fluid.”

After checking for a few moments he came back and said, “is that, like 5-30?” I said, no, that it was manual transmission fluid. He then said, “is it, like, marine?”

I said, “No, I said it was manual transmission fluid,” wherein he said, “no, you shoulda said that from the beginning.”

I asked for the manager. When she got on the phone, she didn’t do what she should have done; instead, she immediately went into defensive strategy: “He’s new; we can’t know every product; it’s busy, there are customers; we don’t sell a lot of that…”

I said: “let me share a tip, please. Start off by saying you’re sorry…,” wherein she cut me off. “We didn’t do anything wrong to apologize for.”

Subsequently I called corporate to get the telephone number of a regional or district manager. I got a runaround, and I indicated that I’d share my experience and opinion online.

Here it is. There are too many other local choices, including, but not limited to O’Reilly, Advance, Pep Boy’s, Napa, and even Wallmart, for some stuff, like oil.

My suggestion: read all these comments, AutoZone execs, and get to the root cause of your lacking-in-training staff, before what may be isolated incidents turn into a profit-harming trend.

Smack me in the head, if ya’ll ever see me walk into an AutoZone again.

I visit the Aguada PR store on Sunday and coming from NYC the manager on duty was very rude(Milton) I ask for info on a 97 Toyota Corolla because I’m fixing it for my dad since they sold the wrong part he refuse to give me a refund on spark plugs I ask him to just sell me what the car needs. Very rude and so we dicide to go to the other store in Aguadillla and was treated worst. The manager she didn’t even knowledge us she just walk away and only 1 customer at the checkout area and 2 and I waiting for service. Her excuse was the she got a call from her manager to finish something fast. WTF I don’t need to here that, I just need my parts to get my dads car running. In less than 1/2 hour two stores don’t know what they are doing. Very poor customer service and not professional actually they suck. So I visit PepBoy in Aguadilla they took care of us plus a discount and took their time listening to us

I called the Brookfield CT. Store and asked for brakes for a 2006 GMC Envoy denali. The guy said that it had to be a Envoy or a Denali with a smart attitude. I told him that i would b ed there with the title to show him that they do make that vehicle. He said than bring the f______ title and slammed the phone down. I went there and asked for the manager and slme guy said he was the manager. He did nothing or said nothing. I will tell everyone about this and tell them to think about buying from Autozone. Every time lately when you go to one of there store they act angry.

I recently called about getting a new battery for my 78 corvette, set it all up on the phone before I went to the autozone store here in port charlotte fl. When I get there I ask an employee by the name of Jim for some help, I told him that I called prior for a new battery, I explained the make and model of the car, for some reason he doesn’t understand, so I explain it to him again that I need a new battery for my 78 corvette, he then gives me attitude, like I was irritating him or interrupting him! I understand we all have bad days, but I did nothing but ask for help and I’m pretty sure thAts why he is there, very unprofessional !!

I purchased a thermostat from autozone in Frankfort ky. it was definitely the wrong part. this caused a bolt to snap inside the manifold. I went back to the store with the housing. checked every thermostat that the computer said went on my caravan, none of them fit. they were all wrong. the company has agreed to pay for all parts and labor. (admitting guilt) still here without my vehicle because they keep sending the wrong parts to the car mechanic. this has been three weeks no vehicle. they wont help me get a rental or loaner.

I bought a battery at your autozone in roswell ga store #3444 , I was recommended a optima red top battery for my 2000 buick lesabre custom with alot of electrical accessories including burn headlamps! For the past 2 and a half year’s I’ve been through 2 alternators and 3 batteries!! Up until today I could never figure out why my voltage meter would go crazy and my alternator would make strange noise under heavy load like when I run the heater and ac! Come to find out that I was given a red top battery when I needed a yellow to battery which is for electronics and not performance!! Just paid 350 for alternator that lasted roughly a month because of this!! Tried getting in touch with autozone district manager and regional manager, and no response!!! This is very bad business!! I wondering has any body else have had a problem with being recommended the wrong part from autozone which eventually end in you having to repair other problems by being recommended the wrong part? My next step is legal action, because autozone is supposed to train there employees to avoid mishaps like this! So funny it took a new name brandon along with my mechanic to find this out!! Beware of employees at autozone trying to make a sale, it will cost you more money in the end!! Partitions!!! I game contact me at t******@gmail, need to put a end to this, misleading of customers at autozone! Thank you!

Can not believe how incredibly shady people are at auto zones in midland texas and how a female employee that works at the store on Wadley ave. can literally sleep around with coworkers and still keep her job she is the only female there and continues with this behavior and keeps her job and nothing is done about it.

I WENT TO THE AUTOZONE ON E. COLONIAL AT APPROX 7:50 TO PURCHASE SKU# 785K6. ACCORDING TO THE INTERNET IT STATES THE STORE CLOSES AT 9:00PM, HOWEVER WHEN I GOT THERE THE SIGN ON THE DOOR STATED IT CLOSED AT 8:00PM. WITH 10 MINS REMAINING TO MAKE THIS PURCHASE I GET THE ATTENTION OF A CUSTOMER SERVICE REP BY THE NAME OF JOVAN HERNANDEZ (MAYBE MISSPELLED BUT IT IS HIS NAME) WHO WAS VERY RUDE AND DISRESPECTFUL.

HE APPROACHED THE DOOR AND ASKED WHAT DID I WANT? I STATED I ONLY NEEDED TO PURCHASE THE BELT AND BROUGHT TO HIS ATTENTION THAT HE STILL HAD 10 MINS TO MAKE A PURCHASE HE DID A HAND JESTER ACROSS HIS NECK JESTERING HE ALREADY SHUT EVERYTHING DOWN. WHEN I ASKED WHY, HE STATED BECAUSE HE WAS READY TO GO HOME IN A NASTY & RUDE TONE. I LITERALLY BEGGED AND PLEADED WITH THIS GUY EVEN AFTER THE RUDE TONE TO PLEASE LET ME PURCHASE THIS PART WITH THE REMAINING MINUTES, HOPING HE WOULD HAVE A CHANGE OF HEART. HOWEVER BEFORE HE WALKED AWAY FROM THE DOOR HE AGAIN STATED HE WAS CLOSED AND HE WAS READY TO GO HOME.

I THEN LOOKED AT HIS SHIRT AND STATED HIS NAME TO INFORM HIM THAT I WOULD BE CONTACTING CORPORATE ABOUT HIS POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE, HE LOOKED AT ME AT STATED “I DONT GIVE A FUCK” PULLED HIS SHIRT WHERE I CAN MAKE SURE TO SEE HIS NAME AND WALKED AWAY FROM THE DOOR. AT THIS POINT I BECAME LIVID, AND CALLED HIM AN ASSHOLE. AND HE COMES BACK TO THE DOOR OPENS IT AND SAYS “OK AND WHAT!”…

I THEN AGAIN STATED TO HIM THAT HE’S NOT SUPPOSED TO CLOSE BEFORE THE TIME LISTED ON THE DOOR AND I ALSO MADE HIM AWARE OF THE TIME STATED ON THE INTERNET, AND THAT I WAS CALLING CORPORATE ABOUT HIS ATTITUDE. HE STANDS IN THE DOOR, WHICH HE COULD OPEN TO LET ME MAKE A PURCHASE, BUT TO TAUNT ME; LOOKS DIRECTLY AT ME AND STATED I DON’T GIVE A FUCK CALL CORPORATE I’M READY TO GO HOME, HE THEN CLOSED THE DOOR AND WALKED AWAY NONCHALANTLY WITH APPROX 4 MINS REMAINING TO SPARE THAT COULD HAVE BEEN RENDERED TO ME WITH CUSTOMER SERVICE VS. HIS NASTY ATTITUDE.

IN CLOSING, I BELIEVE THIS YOUNG MAN NEEDS TO BE DISCHARGED IMMEDIATELY BEING THAT ALL HE WAS THINKING OF WAS WANTING TO GO HOME VS. RENDERING PROPER CUSTOMER SERVICE. I FOUND HIS ATTITUDE AND TONE WAS VERY DISRESPECTFUL AND TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE TO ME AS A WOMAN!! NEVER IN MY LIFE HAVE I EVER BEEN TREATED SO RUDELY AT A STORE I’M A FREQUENT/LOYAL CUSTOMER TOO. I WOULD REALLY LIKE TO DISCUSS THIS FURTHER WITH A GENERAL OR REGIONAL MANAGER AS SOON AS TIME PERMITS, TO MAKE SURE THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN TO ANOTHER WOMAN LET ALONE ANYONE ELSE. I CANNOT BELIEVE A REPUTABLE COMPANY SUCH AS AUTOZONE WOULD HIRE STAFF WITH SUCH HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE, AND BASE UPON MY EXPERIENCE TODAY I DON’T THINK I WILL BE EVER SHOPPING THERE AGAIN! I WILL BE POSTING A REVIEW ON GOGGLE ABOUT THIS PARTICULAR AUTOZONE TO ADVISE CUSTOMERS THIS AUTOZONE IS NOWHERE TO SHOP, DUE TO THE POOR SERVICE RECEIVED AND HOW I FIRMLY BELIEVE THAT IF THIS GUY DID THIS TO ME….WHAT’S TO SAY HE WOULDN’T DO IT TO SOMEONE ELSE?
I LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM SOMEONE IN REFERENCE TO THIS MATTER.

BEST REGARDS,

1st let me state I’ve been doing all my parts shopping at this store located @ 4301 Montano NW 87120 since they opened there doors. I’m sure I’ve spent 10s of thousands of dollars there. I ordered a couple hundred dollars worth of parts from a employe named Ricky & I had all the part #s. The guy had attitude when I ordered the parts over the ph. He told me it would take 4 days and he would call when they arrived. after 12 days I called to check on the status and they said they did not arrive and that they would call when they arrived.. After another 15 days I called again and they still haven’t arrive. I told the girl to have Ricky call me. after waiting another 3 days I called him, and again with the attitude, he said the parts arrived weeks ago and someone just put then in stock. I told him to pull them and I would be in the next day. Ricky said he would be out. So I established a day when he would be there, after all I did want to meet Mr. attitude. I went to that Autozone to retrieve my parts that he said he would pull and hold for me, but when I arrived the parts were not pulled and set aside. He asked me for the part#s That I have now given him 5 times. I did not have them on me. Of course there was no attitude this time because I was there in person and now knows the Brad Carr is a big SOB and that Brad is not very happy. I waited for 45 minutes while he was in the back trying to find them. I just got fed up a approached 2 other workers and asked for the manager and the young girl said she was the manager. I told her to forget my order I would get the parts some were else. I have never had a problem with this store when other managers were in charge, because they would never put up with a clown like Ricky. I believe in business it always starts at the top positions whether a store is successful or a failure I will have to get my parts elsewhere and will not go back until you straighten out the problems you have at that store (the manager @ Mr. attitude Ricky) so call me if you get it straitened out. On closing my complaint; I have never in my life took the time to gripe or wrote a complaint to a main office but it would just leave a bad taste in my mouth if I didn’t say or do anything. Best regards,
Brad Carr.

I recently visited the autozone in Midland, Texas on Michigan ave. I am from out of town and needed a new battery. After walking into the store with my dead battery and standing at the first open counter, I was not helped for 15 mins while during this time I was passed by several employees. After finally beind asked if I needed help, they tried to test my battery and told me that they needed to charge it first before they could see if it was bad and that I needed to come back in 1 hour. I left and came back, had to wait for help again my battery was still in the same spot as before with a service ticket on it, the employee walked up and told me that the charger kicked it off right away so they “think” it is bad. Then they told me that they couldn’t sell me a battery because there computer was down. I left the store drove 4 blocks away to advance auto parts, walked in was greeted right away, they pulled out there tester hooked it up printed out a paper to show me that it was bad, got my car info went and got the new battery for me, I paid them for it and was on my way within 5 mins!!!!!!!!! YES 5 MINS. Thanks for wasting 2 hours of my time autozone.

I’ve grown up in and around Autozone my whole life. I have several family members and friends who have worked for the company and some who still do. Over the years though, I can’t help but notice the huge turn over rate. I can, however, very clearly see the problem with nearly every store every time I visit one. There are alot of complaints about customer service..here’s why..I’ve heard employees (both managers and regular) talk about inappropriate subjects while serving customers. I’ve heard awful language spoken and even yelled back and forth between employees and a couple of times with customers. I’ve also, more than anything, observed very poor treatment of employees by managers to where it is obvious there is no employee appreciation , humiliating them in front of customers and belittling them to and in front, of other employees. This is not the way you run a business. You do not merely train an employee of any sort to do a job and then yell scream, make fun of, curse and badger them.. (most especially if you want to keep them and at the rate of pay you offer)..i have yet on my city and a couple of others walked in an autozone and been impressed..at least not in the last decade. I would also very highly recommend more frequent drug testing. ..at side from that, you’re HR and AM or DM visits should be more concerned with how your employees are treated because in my life time I have never seen a single company so poorly ran with such poor treatment of people. I do not work for the company, nor am I being bias. .customer service and due diligence is my passion and it breaks my heart to see on my weekly/monthly ventures to the stores

Went to store #2732 in Phoenix AZ had to wait in line for 27 minutes to get a belt that I ordered went out to my car to check to make sure it was the right belt and sure enough it was wrong, so I go inside and go to the checkout counter where I just checked out 2 minutes prior and asked for a refund the store manager Louis tells me I have to wait inline again to return my part. Why should I waste over an hr of my time because your employees cant get it right? I would like a response if you want a chance to save my business at your stores. Im off to orilyes to get the right belt and fight with autozone about getting my money back another day..

I went to autozone @160 lapalco blvd Gretna la 70056 I purchased a new ball joint for my truck got home it was the wrong one so I went back they didn’t have the rite one no big deal I just want a refund I used the 20$ that I had on my reward card and I also got a few other things. So when I go to return it he gave me a in store gift card for the remaining balance wich was around 15$. today is May 1 2015 I go to a different autozone to get tire shine the guy at the register imidiatlly has a attitude with me I give him me gift card he scans it says there’s nothin on my card and throws it away I explained my story and he says well there’s nothin on it so we have to throw them away. And moves on to the next customer. To be honest I dnt care about the 15$ because it’s my fault I did loose the reciept but every autozone I go to they have poor attitudes and I honestly think the reward card program is a scam because this isn’t the first time I have had problems with it. I am a car guy and all my friends are to and there opinion on autozone is the same as mine. As of today unless it to swap out a warranty I wi never use autozone again. my recent and past experience with autozone has been nothin but bad attitudes and a hassle.

Car down for 6 weeks! My only car has radiator problems so I went to autozone and ordered one, took a week and was damaged sent it back, another week got another damaged one, 3rd radiator put in and drove 20 miles got home blew a hole in it, with a mess all over the drive. Number 4 radiator shows up about a month later since this started and it’s the wrong one. Been talking to customer service they tell me they will overnight one, 2 days later no radiator, I call again they tell me they credited my account and they can’t help me. I say why didn’t you tell me that so I didn’t set and wait and response was they can’t get one. 6 weeks now and no car!! I have lost a month of work because of this! They just blew me off! I want compensation big time. I have been buying from them since they opened and this is my reward. What the hell is going on here! Guess I will have O’Rielly’s take care of my needs.

Lost Comercial customer April 18, 2015 at 1:49 am

After seveteen years of dedication to your business I’ll never send another Comercial order to you. On numerous occasions I have placed orders to only wait and wait with no delivery. When I finally call about my order it is several sorry with your order wasn’t placed. Would like to know why that is when the sales rep is sitting in front of the screen looking up my parts. And here recently your district manager made me out to be some senial idiot. When I contested a bill that was incorrect by two hundred dollars. Pretty sad when my employer was assuring her that he heard the phone conversation and that I had questioned the price quoted. But yet she choose to side with her Comercial sales manager as if she was there listening to the conversation. I’m not the first to have the price quoted and the price charged to be different.
Thank you for your time and rest assured oriellys is smiling that they now have another account that does over five hundred on a slow week.
Sincerely, Lost Comercial Account.

Must be nice to be able to have a sexual relationship with the district manager and get whatever you want. Call him anytime for frivolous reasons and he comes running. This is sickening and totally against company policy. This is going on at the Johnson City, TN Market Street store. Between Christine the commercial mgr and Brian Musick DM. They are constantly fraternizing with each other in front of everyone. But as always no one cares. I guess AZ is running a dating and sex service. Maybe someone will do something when I capture video of this and post it to youtube for the world to see. AZ and its employees need to have some morals about themselves during the line of work. Especially a DM.

I had the worst experience today with autozone. First I called the greenwood ave location in Trenton, NJ location looking for an alternator the guy on the phone told me that it was in stock. So I came to the store where a young lady then confirmed that the part wasn’t at there location and that the part was in Fairless hills, pa. I then get to the Fairless hills location where a guy told me that he does not have the part and that it was being sent from the Philadelphia to their location around 5-5:30 today. I then called and the guy on the phone said to give him 20 min and the part should be there. So I called back again and the store had me on hold for 40 min. The associates kept saying after every few minutes please hold (repeatingly).
I will never shop in your store. From the beginning the gentalman and the woman from the greenwood ave location and the guys at the Fairless hills location were very incompetent and should possibly be retrained to know their product the company’s computer systems as well as proper customer service training.
It is a shame and I’m very upset I had to run around for a part that was suppose to be ready today, never even getting a call back to apologize for the delay. I still do not have the part.

Thank you
My reciept is reg 10 car 29 reciept 075002

I bought a battery on Aug 3 2014 for the 1999 Jeep that my husband drove before he passed away the previous year. I explained to the person working that I had to have my jeep jumped off and would like some help on what to do. This store is in Mooresville, NC but sounds very much like what you all have described as far as customer service goes. Anyway he said I needed a new battery which I purchased from them. Well here it is April 3 2015 and my jeep wouldn’t crank this morning. I had to have it jumped off again and drove right back over to the same store. I went in and ask for one of the guys to come out and check the charge on battery. He came out and sure enough the indicator said bad battery. I said well I just bought it less than a year ago from this store. His reply was no you didn’t buy this battery from here because this is not the brand we sell. This brand is a cheap battery that would be sold somewhere like Walmart. I repeated that I was sure I had purchased the battery from this store and they installed it for me. He insisted not and then I said well I have the receipt so I will prove it to you. He went back into the store while I looked through the dash for the receipt. When I went into the store and showed him the receipt he pulled it up in the computer and said no we sold you a battery for your RAV 4 to which I replied I bought that the same day as well. I insisted he keep looking and guess what he fount the one that was sold to me for the Jeep. The actual brand that he had declared minutes before that Auto Zone did not carry. Okay so that’s the first part of my story.
Here’s the second part, the manager came over and declared that the battery only had a 90 day warranty on it. I said why would you sell me a battery that was not reliable and that I was not informed of the 90 day warranty. His reply was well you bought a cheap battery so that’s what you get. Besides that he said the battery wasn’t even the right one for the charge the jeep needed. I said I just want you to prorate the battery and I’ll get another. He said nope it only had a 90 day warranty. My reply was well I suppose that’s why you don’t sell them here anymore because it wasn’t worth a crap. He totally ignored me and turned to help someone else. At that point I was really upset and told them so and also that I would report them and spread the word about their poor customer service to a female that had no clue and depended on them to sell the right product. Bunch of JERKS!!!! Please report your store to your local news channel so we can get the word out. Also to the Better Business Bureau as well. This needs to stop!!!!!

On March 12th at about 8:45 pm my niece, Debbie Moore, purchased a bulb for her car. One of the service techs on duty said he would install it. When he checked under the hood he said her bulb just needed to be tightened, which he did and she went back inside with him so he could do a return to her for the bulb she purchased but didn’t need after all. Approximately 15 minutes after leaving the store the hood to her car flew up while she was driving down the road. The hood had not been properly closed and when it flew up it completely damaged the hood, broke her windshield and dented the top of her car. Debbie called me upset and was sitting on the side of the road unable to drive with the hood of her car up and with a broken windshield while she waited for someone to come and help her. Someone arrived and tied the hood down for her so she could drive. It was close to closing time when she had left the store and when the accident happened and she waited for help and the car hood was secured so she could drive the car home the store had closed. The next morning (Friday 13th) she went to the store which is located in Bartlett, TN. The manager is David White and she told him what had happened. He said he would let his supervisor know what had happened. I also called him between 9:30 – 10am and said we needed to know how to proceed as she was driving around with a broken windshield and a hood tied down. I ask what we needed to be doing to expedite a response of what Auto Zone needed us to do to get this problem that was created by their employee resolved. David said to get 3 estimates for the damage. Monday, March 16th, Debbie went and got the 3 estimates as requested. Debbie went by the store Tuesday with the 3 estimates and David was not there so she did not leave them. She called him Wednesday, March 18th, and was told it was his day off. At this point we felt like we were getting no where and I called the corporate office and spoke with Wall Curry. He said to have Debbie drop the estimates off with whoever the manager was on duty that day and someone would get back with her. Debbie went to the store and dropped off the estimates and gave to the manager on duty on March 18th. On Tuesday, March 24th, not having heard from anyone yet I called Wall Curry back and received his voice mall and left a message to call me and I also called a telephone number I had been given the previous week for I believe the district manager, Jason Greenwood. When I called the number the person that answered the telephone said Jason had just left but could he help me. I did not get his person’s name. I started to explain who I was and what had happened and he said he knew what I was talking about and someone would get back with me. On Wednesday, March 25th, I received a call from Wall Curry and he told me what the company would do. I told him I would talk to Debbie and get back with him. I called him back Friday, March 27th, and was told he was not sure the company would do anything that another dept. was investigating the situation. I am very upset that we can’t get this resolved. I believe one of the reasons for Auto Zone’s growth has been because of the service they offer of not only selling the product but installing the product the customer buys. By Auto Zone hiring “trained Technicians” to offer additional services there is more liability to be incurred by the company and they should be able to accept responsibility when an incident/accident does occur. Debbie has ask for nothing more than to get her car fixed as it was the night she drove up into Auto Zone’s parking lot. Auto Zone knows there was not damage to the hood and windshield that night when she was at Auto Zone and that is not the issue. The issued seems to be why it wasn’t reported that night. We were ask why the claim was not reported that night and I told them because the store was closed and it was reported the following morning. I am hoping someone will read this and help get this resolved. It will be 3 weeks this Thursday since the accident happened. If Auto Zone is not willing to be responsible for human error then they need not offer the service. The person that has been inconvenienced is not Auto Zone but Debbie. She has been frighted by the hood flying up and breaking the windshield while driving down the road and is being made to feel like she has done something wrong. It’s a shame to not accept responsibility and instead try and shift the blame.

The stores in Johnson City Tn are a joke. They are losing all of their commercial accounts because of a couple of people. One is district manager Brian Musick which is a total douchebag. You call and complain and he pretty much just blows you off like your crazy or its your fault. Another one is the ditsy child named Christine that suppose to be commercial parts manager. This girl wouldn’t know her ass from a hole in the ground. But like so many others on here they don’t care about the customers satisfaction. So what we will all be doing is going to federated auto parts where people are nice and take responsibility for their mistakes. Also I will be discussing with my fellow garage owners to drop business with Az also. Which won’t be a hard feat. Also I will no longer be referring anyone and I mean anyone to Az. This company doesn’t care for us so we will not be supporting them. I hope you all lose every bit of business and more for the problems you have caused us.

I wanted to post my recent experience at Autozone. I stopped there today (I am in PA, Rochester location) as my check engine light was on. A gentleman came out in the pouring rain and hooked up a code reader for me and printed out the results and gave me some money saving suggestions where he could have sold me unnecessary crap (I wouldn’t know). While at my car, he noticed that my windshield wiper was a little bent as well. He went in got me a wiper and what I needed to self-diagnose the exact problem since code readers are a bit vague. This nice man stood outside in the cold and rain and put my blade on, explained the self-diagnostic technique, checked to see if he could find an obvious problem and then proceeded to stand outside longer while I ran the new wiper to make sure the second wiper wasn’t off and what damaged the first wiper. He was extremely helpful, went above and beyond in helping and explaining and did it all with a smile, despite getting soaked. I don’t see this kind of customer service anymore and it absolutely made my day. Unfortunately, I wrote his name on the printout he gave me and gave it to my mechanic so, I will email the corporate office when I retrieve it. His patience, helpfulness, thoughtfulness and willingness to get drenched to help a customer will cause me to recommend their business to anyone, him especially!

Please forward this message to your company president. I would like for store manager Lina R. from the 1834 Gessner Rd, Houston,TX store to be recognized for outstanding customer service. She “Wowed” me by helping me in my time of need. I purchased an H7 Sylvania bulb for my 2003 Hyundai Elantra about 4-5 months ago and during the early morning drive to work in thick fog, I noticed that my drivers side headlamp bulb was not shining down the road. It was on, but looked like it was failing. After pulling into Autozone and looking at the back of the package for the replacement bulb, it states that a customer may return the bulb to the place of purchase or to Sylvania directly within 12 months if not completely satisfied. Lina R. offered to swap out my failing bulb for a new one in the store. This was outstanding! I didn’t have the receipt for the failing bulb in the car as most people don’t but she really aimed to please by putting safety and customer service first! Later during the installation process, I noticed that my “failed” bulb was actually still good and the reason for the reduction in light was because the clip that holds the bulb in place came off. I returned the new bulb back to Linda R. as well as the tool kit that she let me borrow to work on my car. Thank you for empowering your management team to make customer service a priority and honoring what was stated on the back of the bulb package by allowing customers to return faulty bulbs to the store. One note though, there was no way for the store to pull up my purchase history by swiping my card. In the future, this would help customers prove when they purchased an item from any AutoZone store so they don’t have to hold on to old receipts to prove an item was purchased, especially for low cost items like bulbs. Thank you! There was also another associate in the store named Robert who I believe said he was from a regional team or something, he was also VERY helpful in working with Lina R. to get my “faulty” bulb swapped out.

I was recently at one of your stores off of Ashley phosphate road AnD dorchester rd in Charleston South Carolina. I walked in just to ask one of the representative to look at the back of my vehicle to see if when I press the brake the lights and which I just purchased comes on. when I walked in, I was told we are not mechanics and a blank stare. I am a business owner and I am very well known on the southeast. I do feel like this individual did not want to help me and I will make sure from this moment on, I will not, and my client will not purchase from the store. Thank you for your time

BEWARE THE AUTOZONE STORE IN BELLWOOD, IL:
I have never seen anything like this in my environment before regarding a store where I have spent $$$. The lack of customer service is AWEFUL and when I pointed out to their attention where I took notice that the problem was, they reteliated on me and lied to their higher ups so no one would treat me right.
I went to the AutoZone in Bellwood, IL to buy brakes and the women (Shirley) at the counter ignored me initially, finally she acknowledged me and I told her I was there to buy brakes and that I have a warranty and that I called the day before and was told they had my brakes in stock. Shirley was having problems pulling my information up in the computer and then kept losing my information so I gave it to her 3 to 4 times before she could get it right. I bought the brakes, left and took them to my mechanic. I left the mechanic to run errands but an hour or so later he called to say they gave me the wrong brakes. I drove about 25 minutes to get back to him, picked up the brakes and then took them back to AutoZone in Bellwood, IL and then all of my troubles started. They became defensive, and rude when I told them my mechanic said they gave me the wrong brakes, then the woman (Shirley) who originally sold me the brakes left her customer to come over to me and the other sales guy and was even more defensive also and telling me she did not give me the wrong brakes.
It got very heated and the guy told me to leave the store and never come back, and I told him I am helping to pay his salary so how is he telling me to leave the store, then the Shirley started in again and I made a comment to them that they didn’t like and left the store. Mind you I did not cuss but I let them know what I was witnessing as far which customers were being serviced and who wasn’t and because I called it like it was they in turn lied on me to say I was the one who was the initiator of the incident to their higher ups so now they are biased and aren’t giving me the service that they should to fix the issue and said they can’t so anything to their employees based on the information that got that says I was the problem. I’m telling you, I have never seen anything like this before in my life in cases where I have spent $$$.
And here is what I am witnessing now – NO ONE AT AUTOZONE CARES ABOUT THEIR CUSTOMERS OR TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT – THEY WOULD RATHER BLAME THE CUSTOMER INSTEAD OF LOOKING TO SEE HOW THEY CAN HELP FIX THE ISSUE. I HAVE BEEN A CUSTOMER WITH THEM FOR ABOUT 20 YEARS AND THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT THAT…IT IS VERY SHAMEFUL AND SAD THAT IT HAS COME TO THIS WHERE WE HAVE TO SHARE INFORMATION ABOUT THEIR LACK OF CUSTOMER SERVICE ON THE INTERNET!!!
I WILL NOT SUPPORT THAT STORE AGAIN AND WILL TELL MY FAMILY AND FRIENDS NOT TO SUPPORT THAT STORE. I WILL BE WRITING LETTERS TO THE CEO – WILLIAM RHODES III – THE CFO – WILLIAM T. GILES & THE COO – HARRY L. GOLDSMITH TO SEE IF THEY APPROVE OF THE TREAMENT THAT I RECEIVED FROM THE BELLWOOD, IL STORE.

I really enjoyed being an employee for almost two years in the AutoZone family. I had to change my families life from Memphis, TN to assure my kids sucess and now the mission is complete and I’m ready to return if AutoZone will allow me. I alway felt a joy from working at AutoZone and as CEO William Rhodes always said “family comes first”. I want AutoZone to reconsider me for my old position ( General Liability Adjustor ) with the only place which me feel like leaving my 24/7 family and coming in to work with my 8-5 family. Please allow me a second chance AZ !!

I feel sorry for the store managers that you all employ. I know a few of them and the way they are treated and the hours that they have to put in to meet all your requirements is just ridiculous. They all have families too but, it doesn’t seem like you all care. The managers I know are hard working and dedicated to your company and to get treated the way that they do is unacceptable in my book. I understand that managers put in longer hours because that is part of management. I have been a manager myself, thank god never for your company. I think that maybe you should put yourself in their shoes and see the hard work that they put in on a daily basis. However, I am almost positive that will never happen. Your company asks so much of all there employees and the pay isn’t that great at all. I have not been, nor will I ever be employed by your company because of your business practices. I hope that this reaches someone that will actually do something about all of this but, I am sure that it will fall upon deaf ears and you will continue business as usual which means you will lose out on some great employees because they will go where they will get treated better and appreciated.

They told me that the arrival date was on 02/06/15 at 6pm. i went there saturday and teh manager of the store told me that the transmission was on transit. I received a phone call from the regional manager on saturday feb 7th and told me that i should receive it on monday feb 9th. Today is Feb 10th and still not signs of the transmission. On the top of that, the personal warranty information is incorrect and have somebody else name on it and they cant even correct that at this time. I’ve been calling and emailing several people and nobody can give me an answer. Is there anyone that can take care of this matter???

Why during a state of emergency in the NE region of the US, county officials are closing state offices and multiple groups are demanding people not to be driving on roads unless emergency personnel, but your District managers are refusing to close stores and let workers go home. Are they that greedy to have associates be killed in accidents from this blizzard? District managers, or Regional manager continue to put your associates at jeopardy trying top keep stores open during bad weather. I wonder if it would be a good PR when/if someone dies driving home tonight during 1ft of snow, cause they were forced to be at your stores.

I went to you store on 714 N Horner Blvd sanford NC 27330 and i was so disappointed. First of I am a black male spent 8 years of my life in the United States Army and I walk into your store and get treated like a criminal from the start. I have a 2007 Yukon XL I was going to pick up a couple of parts for and when I was looking through some stuff there was a sales associate acting like he was looking through the oil, I saw him but I just didnt worry about it. Then I went to ask him a question about the difference between royal purple oil and regular oil and with a smart mouth he told me your store dont sale it. So i was about to leave then I remembered I needed tire spray so I went to were it was and when i looked up there he was looking at me at a cash register that wasn’t even open. So I left, there was at least four other people in the store that was not getting the attention I was receiving. That’s not right, I will be emailing higher and higher until I get an answer because I didn’t survive Iraq and Afghanistan to be called a criminal in my own city!

My boyfriend bought some blue devil for my car and we didn’t need it. He lost the reciept so He called AutoZone to ask about the return policy with no receipt the manager on duty told him if he doesn’t have a receipt he will not return it. My boyfriend then looked up the policy online and it says it can be returned he will get store credit for it. So I called the same AutoZone back and was told if I don’t have a receipt and the product was not open (which it was still closed) it can be returned and we will get an AutoZone card. My boyfriend went inside to return the blue devil and was denied the return. The manager called another store and because the other store had 2 bottles of blue devil missing that manager told him not to return it… We are not thiefs and we do plenty of business at AutoZone because my boyfriend is restoring/rebuilding his mustang and for them to not return an item we paid for is unacceptable. It is not our fault another store is missing items and it’s not professional to take it out on customers. I would like someone to contact me about this because it needs to be resolved.. The AutoZone this is regarding is 500 north spring garden deland fl 32720. The manager my boyfriend spoke with was Sean.

I have some parts I bought at Chief Auto Parts back in the day with a lifetime warranty, since autozone bought them out do they honor that warranty? I have the receipts.

issue with Auto Zone battery. Twice they charged it and told me my nearly new battery tested good, only for me to find it dead the next mornings. I took my car to the dealer thinking I had an electrical drain and paid for an expensive diagnostic. They said the battery was bad – won’t hold a charge. The dealer could have convinced me to have an unnecessary repair or buy a battery from them but didn’t. They said go back to Auto Zone, try to get a refund and buy a new battery somewhere else. The dealer said they see a lot of this with Auto Zone claiming their batteries are good and won’t honor the warranty. I am going in circles trying to get this resolved. The Auto Zone manager says he can’t replace it because it tests OK there. Their “warranty” is meaningless so Buyer Beware.

Going thru that now. The Gm dealer and my mechanic tested and told me I need a new battery go back to autozone and get them to replace it. Autozone clerk test and said that protocol required for them to charge the battery for our it is below zero I have a little boy and once I turn my car off it will not turn back on. Not happy with how they claim they stand behind their merchandise.

On Sunday the 21st Autozone was having a huge flash sale on oil. $1 per quart of Castrol SynBlend with free shipping. I purchased a quantity of 12. I didn’t want to be too greedy.;) I received conformation of my order a short time after via email. Three days later I get a notice from Paypal that my order has been canceled by vendor. No notification from Autozone and no reason why. I called customer service to find out what the problem was. From that point on it was a nightmare. Call dropped off several times before I could even get to a person. Once I was able to get to a customer representative I was told SORRY but you’re SOL since they are out of stock. OUT OF STOCK ON OIL??? The local Autozone had the same oil on the shelves but I was not allowed to pick it up locally. I asked to speak to a supervisor and again the call was dropped. I called again and asked immediately to speak to a supervisor and was transferred to another person. I again explained the issue and gave him my order confirmation number. Again I got the “SORRY BUT” response. After some bantering around they did tell me they would send my a gift card to compensate me for my time and trouble. I said “fine, then can you send me an email conformation with your name so I have a record of this conversation?”…. Next thing I know is… Silence and another dropped call. This will be the last time I deal with Autozone. It’s a shame since I have one just around the corner and I’ve done so much business with them over the years. I’m an avid car collector and motorcyclist. Currently have 5 cars, 2 motorcycles and an RV in the stable. I guess I’ll just have to make the turn in the opposite direction and go to the Advance Auto Parts just a few blocks away. Shame that this company would rather loose a customer then to work something out over 12 bottles of oil on a sale they promoted abut was insufficiently stocked for. RIP Autozone.

The guy at the Whitehall, Ohio store by the name of Mark is walking around with the title of manager. I’m not sure who was responsible for putting him in this position but they themselves need their fluids checked!! I’m not going to waste a lot of my time nor yours with all the details, I will however say that this guy is one of the most unprofessional people that I have ever encountered. Immature and deceitful is just a couple of nice things I can say about my experience with him. Long time customer saying good bye Autozone, I’ll take my business and my money elsewhere without any regret. Keep up the pace Autozone your competitors love ya!!!!

Hi today around 2:00 pm I called the autozone on West Ridge Shopping Center, 95 Myrtle St, New Britain, CT 06051 because I was looking for a part for one of my cars and I spoke to the rudest person on the phone . As I was trying to te her the year and model of my car she was just having a non related conversation with a coworker while I was listening to their personal conversation. Once she took my car information with an attitude, I asked if it was available at the store., she snap and yelled at me telling me to let her check to see if she have the part in the store. I asked to speak to a manager because her behavior is not acceptable and I would know since I’m a store manager myself for a very well known retail store. She said she was one of the managers, her name is I believe Liz G. Or Luz G. I’ve been a customer for autozone for over 17 years and this woman was so obnoxious and disrespectful to me that I decided never go back to that store.

I have been dealing with Auto-Shack/Zone for most of my pre-post adult life. I have bought parts for a 1980 Honda Civic through a 2013 Yukon and a lot of vehicles in between. I will say over the years I have had a few parts that wasn’t up to par on fitment to wearing out sooner than expected but I will say I have never had an issue getting the parts exchanged. I live in Tupelo, Ms with several Autozone(s) at my disposal, I only use one and that is the one on South Gloster Street. I have been dealing with Micki Boyette (Commercial Sales Manager) and Ricky Pate (Store Manager) for years and they have been awesome in getting the parts I need. I have spent Thousands of dollars with them and they have been knowledgeable and helpful whether I spend $5.00 or $500.00 at a time… Good guys and should be reconized for their values and dedication to your company because they always find a way to make the consumer happy and the company profitable at the same time… Thanks for you time!

recently purchased brake shoes for my daughters vw. I had the items shipped to home with no issues. When I went to install the parts would not work. I returned to the local store in Wayland MI. Thank goodness they had the same parts in stock because we were able to compare the parts that I had ordered and what the store had in stock…Part number 662.
The parts I received were manufactured incorrectly and we were able to see the difference immediately. I wanted to make someone aware of what happened. The correct part was make in Mexico and the incorrect part was make in the USA. Yes it was a inconvenience, not looking for anything just a FYI.

Thank you,

I live in Rossville, Illinois..
But on Thursday 11/13/2014 I bought a theromostat for my 200O Chevy Silverado at the Danville,Illinois store on North Vermillion st.
Today(11/11/14) (@630 am, with a temp. Of 18℃), my wife and I were headding 30 mins south out of the town we are living in when just 1 mile out, my truck over heats (we waited for an hour in the fridges cold before realizing it woukdnt cool down enough)…. So I proceed to install the new thermo stat, got everything taken off to replace the thermo. But the sales clerk I bought the part from at A.Z. sold me one that didn’t even fit….. So, I got on the phone and called tat store. The guy who answered the call said he couldn’t help., so I got a lil Pist..’ so the store manager “Brian Coffey….gets on the phone,
Aistin:?
Yes, I said…hey, sorry my guys messed up lastnight, so I’m going to deliver this to u…”cool” I said…well ur store manager not only delivered me the right thermo, but also took it upon himself to install the new part, and brought me new anti-freeze….. It took Mr.Coffey about 20 mins to get my wife and I back on the road again.
Its gentalmen/Managers like Mr. Coffey that give consumers hope when doing buiseness with your company…… More managers should be more like Mr. Coffey

Autozone is the worst place to work for. They treat you like crap and expect everything to be done with only two people on schedule for the whole day. No days off , no breaks , and denied requested days off. I tried to take a week off for my wife’s birthday because we were going out of town and was told a straight up NO. Also I want to go to school but my manager told me I can either quit or become a red shirt so I can go. I wish I could just walk out .

The quality of their parts are TERRIBLE. I purchase inner and outer tie rods for my Ford Ranger. After putting on all four tie rods and starting to put the grease fitting on I notice two out of the four where not threaded. I had did disassemble everything and have my wife pick up two more. After reassembling everything again, I had another bad one. The bolt from the tie rod would just spin and could not be tightened. I had to disassemble everything again. At this point I was extremely upset and I called the store to explain my frustration. This store did not have a replacement so I had him call around to see what other location had a replacement. I also had him double check where the grease fitting is attached to make sure it was threaded. After being on hold for quite a while the employ found one. The reason it took him so long to get back on the phone is because the other locations that he called had the some problem with their tie rods. Luckily he was able to find me one. When I went to the other store to pick up the 5th inner tie rod (vehicle only have two inner tie rods), one of the other employees said he has seen the same thing with the inventory at that same location. Not only with tie rods but other items. This tells me this is not a onetime issue but an ongoing problem. When corporations try to cut costs and buy from China we as consumers pay the penalty of poor quality. I would rather pay more for product I can trust and feel comfortable putting on my vehicle. I spent over 10 hours to replace my tie rods due to the quality of your products. This should have only taken me 3 hours max. I had to assemble and disassemble everything 3 different times and had to purchase 5 different outer tie rods to get 2 good ones. This is not a good percentage for quality. I had other issues with the inner tie rods but was able to make those work because I was going to go back to one of our stores. I will never go back to an Autozone because of the quality of your products. The employees’ were helpful so I don’t fault them for the products but I do fault Autozone for it.

I’m currently a store manager for autozone! I have been employed by autozone for the last 16 months & a store manager for 3 months. I acquired the right to have a panel interview by the means of calling & talking to my regional huaman resources manager, because I wasn’t giving the chance to interview before a panel by my district managers! Needless to say I got the job! Now three months later after very little help at all from my district manager I have cleaned up, reset & have tried my hardest to turn this store around for the better, I am now being accused of steeling & my district manager upon his own departure from the company is trying a bring me down on his way out! I’m a honest person with nothen to gain from taking what I haven’t earned! My district manager hates the fact that I have went over his head to get the position I currently have & found myself a way to not be the boot licking lackey as well as provide for my family. I’m just one of many black or African American men who are constantly racially profiled & deals with this on a daily basis. I only write this because I scheduled myself off on my own birthday, witch was the day before my district manager is departing from autozone to a new career for him self, that I was called in by my district manager on my day off for no other reason, come to find out via text that he wanted to confront me with alagitions of steeling and to fire me, on my birthday/day off! Nevertheless I turned my phone off all day, just so I can wake up & turn my phone on to find text after text of his plans to fire me before he leaves this company! So now before I go to work for what seems to be my last day here at autozone I thought I would finally comment on what I’ve been dealing with sience day 1! Thanks for listening! Kari Kareem S.M.

The Kennet Square Pa store is very unorganized and not helpful at all every time I go in. I have a commercial account with your store and do a lot of business with you and no longer wish to support your company due to lazy, distracted, and unknowledgeable staff. I was in the store today planning to buy $500 dollars worth of product. As I waited my turn in line customers that were behind me had been help first as I continued to be ignored. One employee was putting product away and ignored me as well. After this I was furious and left the building, As I walked out I noticed 2 employees smoking as the store was very busy. I shook my head got in my truck headed to advanced auto and opened an account with them and will be doing further business with them.

I just purchased a 119.00 battery from the Bristol,Va store on Bonham Rd. The store manager(Bobby Goldman) was incredibly rude & should not be in any type of managerial position. I first gave him the info I downloaded from the AutoZone website. He just grunted and had this smirk on his face. I then walked over to a display to see what was for sale & he was apparently asking me a question behind this register with something blocking his sight. All he had to do was look around & let me see he was speaking to me. When you speak to someone you should look them in the face. This guy(Bobby Goldman) looks down and kind-of mumbles. He then asked me if I had a rewards card in a very loud & obnoxious manner. This is when I should’ve gone to WalMart. There was an older man(possibly 80’s) before me that was treated even worse. This individual (a store manager) should be a disgrace to any corporate office. Something should be done.

So upset with grand rapids district manager, and payroll department. First off I have been a store manager for over 4 years with one of my previous employers. I was promised a store manager position at Autozone after a year. Then they asked me to run the commercial department. My district manager said “if you grow this department, I will get you your store manager position. Well I finished off the year positive. Grew the business 10%. Had a bad start off for the new physical year. And he took me out of commercial and put me back into assistant store manager. Then was told I had to wait another year to get my store. On the payroll side it has been a month after I took my vacation and I still have not received any vacation pay. Even after I talked to them 2 weeks ago and they said” it will be on the next paycheck”.

I was terminated and she was reprimanded. I owner stock in AutoZone which I wanted to keep to pass on to my children. Someone from Autozone called my home and asked if I wanted to sell the stock or receive the certificates. I said receive the certificates. THey said it would be arounf 13-14 weeks before I would receive them. After 6 weeks I received a check in the mail for the stock that was sold. Now I am stuck paying taxes on a short term capital gain. Thanks Alot Autozone. You screwed me again.

I went to the auto zone on Buena Ventura Lakes in Kissimmee & I recieved the absolute WORST customer service in the ever. I honestly think that McDonalds has better customer service than this store. I also work in retail and if any of my associates treated any of our customers like they did. Id fire them on the spot and the worst part is, it was two managers. Store Manager (Angelica) and Comerical Manager (Carlos). When I told them my concerns they responded, “You either wait till tomorrow or get your money back.” & in my opinion thats no way to talk to a customer. I will no longer go to auto zone because of this.

I ordered a part from the Arcadia, Florida Autozone on September 22,2014 and was assured that I would receive it on September 25,2014. On September 25 I went into the store to purchase another part and while there asked if they had an idea of what time the deliveries were made, they asked what part I ordered and then I was asked to wait for the manager. The manager came out with a piece of torn off notebook paper and told me they needed more information before the part could be shipped and that it would be an additional three weeks wait for the part and that no one contacted me because they did not have my number. I told the manager that I had a printed order invoice that showed delivery on the 15th and that my full name and cell number were printed on it. I informed the manager that I could not wait three weeks and that I wanted a refund, he said that if I would get him the addition information that he would make sure I had it in four days. The additional information was given to the part manufacturing company within two hours after the conversation, it has now been 11 days and I still do not have my part and have not had any communication from the store manager or associate.

I am done with autozone. I bought a battery from the hope mills nc store. it did not have enough power to put the convertible top up. i am doing body work on the car so it sat for two weeks. i went to start it and nothing.. i took it back to the store and asked to exchange it for a more heavy duty battery. i would pay the difference. he said he has to charge it before he can do that. WHY???? if im upgrading to a more expensive battery? this jerk told me to come back in a hour and a half, so he can charge it. this is poor customer service. i guess autozone has gotten to big to care for their customers. i rebuild cars off of craigslist and fix them, repaint and sell them. i put about $500-$1000 per car for parts. i am now going to use rock auto where they are so much cheeper. i guess this is why those internet autoparts stores are doing so good. because we are tired poor customer service.

so I was at the AutoZone in Colorado Springs on Platte and Boulder today. I have about 5 projects going on and I planned on spending about 150 dollars. I was in the store for about 30 minutes just because I couldn’t find anything that would work for me and had a hard time making decisions oh and on top of that I forgot my list at home. anyway there was about four or five employees working at the time. The manager Mike is awesome he’s a good guy and great with people and I see him every time I go in which I’ve been going to the store about 6 years now. Everything was going good until Joshua , an employee that’s been working there 8 years decided to come up to me and asked if he could take my basket up to the front. I told him sure but I’m not quite done shopping and I asked if I should just grab another basket. he immediately answered with “man you’ve been in the store for a while your walking around with a basket ,we had a guy here yesterday take some stuff and to tell you the truth I don’t think that you’re here to spend money” I said “you think I’m going to steal something from you?” and he shrugged his shoulders with a smirk on his face and said” well” I immediately gave him the basket and walked up to the front desk to talk to Mike but you was gone. I left a message with the regional manager and hopefully they get back to me and we can do something about this and get the guy written up. talk about embarrassing. I’m 35 years old with two kids and I don’t steal anything. I have my rewards card and I’ve spent so much money at this store and now I don’t even want to go back. What would you guys do if that happened to you? I mean they have cameras in the store not one of the other employees did this to me they’ve never done this to me. I didn’t do anything to make him think I was stealing that then I just don’t understand why he did it. but I’m sure that nothing’s going to happen autozone is just going to shrug it off their shoulders because I mean honestly what am I going to do. I’m just one customer to them and they would be fine without me so i dont know what a crappy day. Thanks Joshua

I hope this finds all readers a better day than I had. After looking in several different places,I was told to try Aotozone. I was in need of red tail light tape ,I am disabled. While trying to find some one to help me i saw no one,until I went around the corner there stood a man on the phone I asked if he could assist me in finding the tape. The man said nothing to me then helped the gentleman behind me I stood back for 5-6 minutes no problem I did find it strange that nobody greeted me or even cared I was in the store. I approached the counter in hope of getting help and the man said “Cant you see im busy on the computer here” He then yelled at a lady maned tina\lisa and she replied “you can see im with a customer “so i ventured off to find it myself after looking thru the whole store,Not one person or staff offered any help after spending almost a half hour in the store. I found my tape thankfully I took it to the woman at the other side of the store I didnt want to have any words with that man .There was a customer at the register, It was soon my turn . I gave the moneyto moody looking woman my money,She wrung up my tape gave me my change,aND then stared at me I stared back the woman looked un sure of what I wanted from her Well if any one would have takin the time to teach them horrrible staff meMbers just a little customer service, they would have a much better score than 1.9! NOT EVEN IN THE BAD PARTS OF SOUTHBEND IN, WILL YOU GET CUSTOMER SERVICE THIS REDICULESLY UN TRAINED CUSTOMER SERVICE,ANY WHERE I believe this company will fail , and its not corparate they are very polite and understanding. Its the managers that allow these foul,rude,mean uncaring no service skills people to run there store The manager should take care of and react when people get bad customer service. And if its not the manager that its the general manager who should have to take responsibility for the stores he or she runs this chain of stores should be overhald completely . and soon everyone knows DONT GO TO AUTOZONE store number 0657 Mckinley , Mishawaka INDIANA

I am a Customer at the store at 7810 Tonnelle Ave in NJ. I am a Vietnam War veteran. Many of your customers are war veterans who have served in war zones. We are trained in self defense and using firearms, we are also trained in making a presence without displayng firearms.
War veterans and most citizens shopping at Autozone DO NOT WANT A SECURITY PERSON FLAUNTING A FIREARM. Wearing a sign “Armed Security Person” is enough, weapons are displayed, they intimidate the average customer and remind war veterans of unpleasant war experiences.
Next time I visit an Autozone store (including this store) I DO NOT WANT TO SEE THE SECURITY PERSON FIREARM.

I am a business owner of an auto repair shop, and buy most of my parts at auto zone.
Sad to say that they change prices more than they change products. The childish workers that they have working there are like children at play. Some give parts to their family and friends thru business accounts to get cheaper but yet i will call today for a starter and it will cost 99.99 i will call tomorrow for same starter and they will try to charge me 150.00.
Someone needs to make up their mind. this message is for the auto zone on marshall and hunting park in philadelphia.
and the delivery service really sucks because they are out visiting entire north philadelphia instead of doing their jobs!

Have been a fan and loyal customer of Autozone for years because my dad shops there and never had any issues. I currently pass two O’Reilly’s and one NAPA to get to my Autozone. I am no mechanic but take on the issues that I know that I have the tools for and the ability to complete. The shop I take my car to for oil changes and issues beyond my capabilities told me that I needed to replace my front passenger side bearing. I had seen my dad do it before so it looked simple enough, take it out, repack it with grease and put it back. Well that is not the story at all. I bought the bearings and rented the tools. I asked the clerk if these were prepacked or did I need to buy grease to pack them. I didn’t know because I never attempted this before. He open one of the boxes pulled of the little cover to the bearings and said they were already packed. Sunday started pulling everything apart and man what a challenge. What would take someone with tools took me about 7 hours because everything is machine pressed into the wheel. I tried the tools that I rented, I tried pry bars, I tried hammering the bearing out…but nothing was working. I was able to get the hub and bearings out, but had to take it to my local shop to have them machine press the other parts out of the wheel and press the new part back in. After 6 hours of wrestling, busting knuckles, and even cussing out the wheel bearing, I finished one. That was it, I was done and didn’t want to do the other one for the sake of doing it. Next time I will leave that up to the pro’s. So later that day I took back the tools and the other bearing. I met the most snotty and rude manager on duty that I have ever encountered. She was argumentative and hostile to the point of refusing to return the bearing because she said it was damaged. I told her that is they way you sold it to me and I didn’t even open the box. She said she wouldn’t return it and it didn’t matter what I said and gave me the District Manager’s number. I have called the DM a few times and even sent a email to the corporate office, but I have still not gotten a call, but I did get a reply that someone would be contacting me. So the first question is, did I damage the bearing. If you’ve tried this job without a press you know that you have to destroy it to get it out. If you have a press then maybe you can get it out looking half way decent, but that wasn’t my case at all. Second question is, did they sell me a defective product. Well it seems they did because this one was either damaged when I bought it or it came from the manufacture that way. What would have happened if I put a defective wheel bearing on my car? Who knows, wheel could have flown off, the wobble would have drove me crazy, or nothing. I hate to leave a company and go to competitors over a $40 part, but it’s more than that. It was the manger with the attitude, it is the DM that didn’t follow through, and it’s the company that allows poor customer service to be tolerated. Needless to say it to easy to find the same product for the same price at other stores and online. Thanks Autozone for many years of service, but your only good as your last mistake.

In regards to complaint. I have to say I went trough a bad experience. I do have to admit that Fernando is a professional that cares that his customer is 100% satisfied. Fernando went above and beyond to keep me happy and loyal.
Southgate store. On firestone
Overall Fernando made me realize that he cares. People like Fernando should be running districts regions. He’s compassionate and very professional. I’m pretty sure he always puts the company first and makes sure the community stays loyal. Please recognize Fernando he made sure this problem stopped and kept the customer wanting to come back . I will make sure nobody knows about the hickup I had. On the other hand I will let everyone know Fernando will go above and beyond. Also Freddy was very helpful as we’ll.
Thanks .

Happy customer ,

Went online and order some parts. Convertible new car for me and a road trip this weekend. Part of my order was for two (split) axels (same part#). The axels came in and I took them to my local shop. 5 minutes till closing they called. The first axel had its bearings rolling around in the box NOT GOOD. Then they open the second box and they flange is messed up. WHAT the hell-o-pete is going on with your DuraCrap products? The same part but two different problems. Where are the QC people? Let’s see car is on the rack and the 1-800 lady is telling me I can take them to the local store and I can replacement for them and they can have my parts sent in by next day mail…. Why should I trust any part from DURALAST when I’m servicing my family vechicles? Why should anyone trust Autozone with their family vechicles? Yes they were a lot cheaper than anywhere else but then again like my papi said” You get what you pay for”. I will return them tomorrow first thing ….and it might be my last trip…..

Seems like autozone is screwing over more & more plp!! There becoming money hungry grubbing company, after all if it wasn’t for the public dealing with them they wouldn’t be as large a company as what they are today.I myself and other family members have been purchasing parts from them since they opened there doors not to mention friends, well my friends and family slowing quit dealing with them because of poor service wrong parts and trouble with refunds.I am also going elsewhere from this day forward, I made a credit card purchase for a starter that was almost $200. with a $20.00 core which I paid cash for and autozone plp. Would not refund the $ 20.back in cash they sad thats just the way it goes they don’t have any control over that its the way the corporate office sets up refunds, core deposits and so on.I am done with autozone way to many other part stores to deal with

The Autozone Store on Summer close to Highland has stolen $52.61 from me on Monday! I purchased at part that was wrong & I returned it. I used my Debit card. When i returned the idea the lady at the working the front told me to rescan my card. I did. Well i did not know that i was support to be refunded money (cash) i waited a few days for my money to be put back on my bank card. Well that dont happen. Autozone was to hand me the money on the spot. Well i did not get any refund. I went back to the store & also called the Corporate Office both told me i was handed the money & they was “NOT GOING TO REPLAY ANY CAMERA” i was told i was out of luck & my money will not be giving to me. I am very very upset with AutoZone they are just thieves! At least they could have played back the front Camera to see i was handed NO MONEY! I bet the lady working the front took the money & put it in her pocket ! Well i dont know but i dont have it!

For long. The oil pump. Broke. Inside the engine causing my syncro to break my camshaft got few theeths. Bad as we’ll. I was driving down the road. And my oil pressure drop. And I start hearing this click click sound. My jeep is been on the shop for. 7 weeks. Waiting for this stupid idiots to respond for the damage. They don’t care about peoples needs. How can this be possible. I own a welding company and the only way to stay on buisness is to do good work. And to tread customer well with no attitude. And whatever my customer adds. Or wants extra. I try to read them the best way possible. Ibut this people. Don’t care. 7 weeks. To respond to a clame. That is so so so. Stupid to do. I hate to get an attorney.

The Auto Zone in St. Louis, Missouri on New Halls Ferry Rd. Worker Shauntell Mason, store 0286. Bought a catalytic converter for my car and she sold me the wrong part. During the first transaction she gave me this extremely long part w/o a box. I was skeptical but gave her the benefit of knowing her job. I asked why does it look like this and she said How is it Suppose to look? I said isn’t it suppose to come in a box? She said your car didn’t require a box. Okay I didn’t like her attitude but said let me get the part and go.
Second transaction I came to return the wrong part? She looked well not happy l said I need part with Manifold. She said you didn’t say that. I said yes I did several times. She went back and forth with saying no she didnt. I asked if their was a problem she said rudely no. She once again pulled up the wrong part on computer. I said no with manifold. I said I said that before. Then she wants to out talk me and argue. I said listen refund me my money and give me the right part. Attitude was given , I said I don’t like your attitude. She said I don’t have an attitude. I then let her know I was calling cooperate office. She said that’s fine.

How can they verify that the work was done properly? You should talk to the shop that installed it.

Let me tell you a story : Years ago, a company had a similar problem where the diesel engine broke to pieces. They brought in busted pistons and rings, bent crankshaft and a block with a hole. These are EXPENSIVE to replace obviously. Turns out that their mechanic that replaced the parts was drunk 9 times out of 10 yet they didn’t fire him. He had forgotten to remove the lip on the worn cylinders before he put in the new parts. No big deal, right? Its only a little lip. So, upon initial startup the engine broke the rings and threw a rod. He had also forgotten to add assembly lube to the bearings. Why would AZ eat the cost of the engine plus labor when the shop “mechanic” messed up? Shouldn’t that business eat it and buy the customer a new engine? I guess the truck owner should go for the business with the deeper pockets, right?

After reading the other comments, I realize that the company does not care about its customers. Suffice it to say I too had customer service problems and the store manager was rude. They get you because they make you prepay for the part. If it doesn’t, arrive you’re just screwed! Obviously no one cares.

It’s absolutely ridiculous that autozones guarantee means nothing. It’s ridiculous that 3 days after a part was “guaranteed” to be there no later than, a part that had already been paid for that the customer has to push the store to find out where the dang part is and insist on the part now instead of waiting for the fourth day past the guaranteed date. We will never use autozone again I can promise that. You guys should take the word “guarantee” right out of your vocabulary and “customers satisfaction” go ahead and take that out also. Those words mean absolutely nothing to autozone. Thanks for keeping me on foot an extra 3 days and providing no answers. Lesson learned

I am writing you to inform you that I didnt know that under your warrenty plan that I had to buy two of the same part in order for the warrenty to kick in. This according to the store manager of the portage in store. She was extremely rude and informed me of this policy. NOWHERE in my receipt on the warrenty does it state this and when I asked her to show me and read me where it states this she stated that was policy. Under no circumstances will I ever shop at autozone again, I dont care if my car blows up I refuse to ever go to another autozone again. All this over some spark plug wires.

I went to autozone on Liberty road, Randallstown, Maryland yesterday, the staff were rude and showed favoritism. I bought a car battery which they were supposed to instal the employee Thomas ignored my car and kept on attending to others who are African-American, because I have a different accent. There is race discrimination in that store. I returned the battery and left the store. The management needs to look into the employees attitude to customers they are unprofessional.

I went to Autozone in AZ at 3920 W. Ray Road in Chandler Az on Sunday to have my head light changed out so I could drive back to Texas and the employee at this location took my high beam out instead of low beam which was the one that was burned out. He could not get to the low beam and I told him to just put it all back together and would take it to a dealership back in Texas when I returned. He did not put anything back right and either took some parts or did something with the parts for the high beam because now it will cost $985.00 to fix my high beam headlight that was not broken to begin with. I need to be be reimburst for this expense because Autozone has an idiot working there and why should I now be responsible for this. The part to replace is so expensive, I just wonder if he kept the part and is trying to sell it on the Black Market. I would like someone to respond and help me get the repair done for the head light that was not broken but is now.

I have been to the Auto Zone location on Harlem Ave in Orland Park IL twice to pick up parts for my two cars and I would no longer advise anyone to go to this location for any parts at any time. The employees are rude, ignorant, racist and think that the world owes them something. The employees seem to think that all they need to do is stand behind the counter and laugh and talk about everything under the sun (almost like it’s party time), but help the customers on the floor. I have overheard derogatory remards about an Oriental man that had come for help with a part and the employees are making fun of him and the way he talks. There is one girl by the name of Michelle that seems to help everyone that came her way, but I heard the employees making fun of her because of her being caucasian. I don’t know where these employees came from or where the manager is, but I will never come back to this store again or much less shop at Auto Zone if this is how the employees act towards customers. Also, is there a dress code at this store or do the employees get to dress how they want to ? They are definitely not professional in either their attitude or dress!!!

I live in Rolla Missouri. Our Autozone store was in a building that was quite old and connected
to an area that the city was trying to condemn. Then suddenly, the Autozone Store caught fire
one night and incurred some pretty major damage. So, now we have a brand new AutoZone
Store. My first visit, I was impressed and saw several items I wanted to come back for another
visit and possibly purchase. But, when I got to the counter to checkout, I believe due to closing
time coming up in a half hour or more, the employee rang me out rather quickly. As a disabled
Veteran, I usually get a percentage discount off my purchase and I informed the gentleman and
he stated: “Remind me next time you come in and I will give you the discount.” I protested that
on my next visit, I would be entitled to another discount and that it wouldn’t work that way.
Then he replies: ” Well, I would have to re-ring all this up again to correct it”. Obviously, he wasn’t about to do that and handed me my bag of items. I have never went back into our AZ and made it a point not to, which is unfortunate, because I’ve purchased a ton of things from
Autozone over the years.
I now go to O’REilly’s, which is only 1 more block down the street. But here’s the kicker, this guy was the Manager in charge that evening! I understand everyone has
a bad day, but I felt embarrassed first in front of everyone else in the store that evening and by the time I got home, I was fuming mad. But, I got over it.
for what it’s worth,

You must be one of the smartest children in your school. You offer no constructive criticism, you didn’t even tell of an event that happened to show why you are displeased with Auto Zone. Your grammar is deplorable, and its even worse than most of the customer responses with valid complaint. Its nice of you to take time out of your day to show what a tool you are, but in the future, please reserve your inane opinion to yourself as you end up looking like the ass. I could insult your further, but you’d do a better job of it than I would.

i recently bought a battery and took back the old one 2 weeks later. I was told the core charge would be added to my bank account. Who knew Autozone keeps you bank account numbers on file. Of course they failed to tell me that when i purchased a battery. I think its kinda odd they can hold on to my bank account number.

Buyer beware,
Upon a customer return for a part malfunction, we as a shop told customer the part
Retains a “lifetime” warranty fact was since we stopped using them as our main supplier
Due to “no defective multi replacement situation ” we could not
Afford l”lost lift time due to faulty manufacture items” although “zone is not at fault for said parts they should reimburse labor to redo the same repair due to faulty manufacter…
It gets better !!!! As one of there highest puchasing vendor
You would think someone above store level might just notice a % loss in
Store sales ( nope) as my final win win effort to do business
I called corperate and low and behold it’s apparent why
Nothing happened at store level … Covey, Carneige, or any educated person
Would have the common courtesy to at least see why I called

Disappointed ,

These people at auto zone lack customer service skills. I have been trying to get a manager at two different stores to help with a discount code to purchase some items bit there is never a manager available. Called corporate to complain, they were going to connect me to a district management office instead they hung up on me. Apparently happy customers is not anything they care or pride in.

About 2 weeks ago I went into the store on Main Street in Summerville SC and bought 6 Motorcraft spark plugs for my car. I had noticed when I was online that these plugs had a 10.00 gift card with purchase. When I got to the cash register the manager told me that the plugs had a rebate, and that he would print a duplicate receipt for me to send in since I had bought spark plug wires as well and wanted to keep a receipt for the warranty. I thanked the manager and left.

The next day I was at my desk and filled out the rebate form which I had printed from your website, filled it out, cut out all the Original UPC codes from the spark plug boxes, circled the purchase of the plugs on the receipt, then taped the UPC codes to a sheet of paper then stapled the receipt on top then the rebate form, then the paper with the UPC codes, sealed the envelope and dropped it in the mail.

Now 2 weeks later I get this email saying that my gift card was denied because I did not send in my receipt. I called customer service and that is where I screwed up. I wrongfully assumed that Autozone might care about a consumer, The girl that answered the phone, told me that they would be more than happy to reconsider my rebate if I just sent in all the things again, I told her that the date had expired for the rebate and also that Autozone required the original UPC codes, but if all that was missing was the receipt, I had that in my file at home. She said that they would not accept a copy of a receipt, then I asked to speak to her manager and asked her name, her response was to promptly tell me to hold then cut me off. Called back and same thing. Guess the ‘manager” was too busy.

I was an Autozone customer since it was Autoshack in Memphis. Notice I said…WAS…!!!! I doubt it. You have lost another customer to O’Reilly’s and online its PartsGeek. Focus more on the people that enabled your massive growth instead of ignoring them.

I will never go there again!!!
We received the wrong size break pads for a 2500 chevy duramax at autozone in Lee’s summit, missouri. I decided to go to autozone in WARRENSBURG MISSOURI and exchange it for the right one. when i got there the guy asked me for the type of truck and i told him multiple times it was a DURAMAX 2500 4WHEEL DR. PICK UP TRUCK. he brought me the new break pads and multiple times after that i told him and another gentleman that they looked too big. those assholes chose to ignore me more than once and continued staring at the computer. i got home and they were for a SEMI TRUCK!!!!

As a paying customer I was beyond disgusted that she could be so insulting and rude!

HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!!!!!!!!
I purchased a Duralast battery from auto zone and it has a 3 year warranty. i tried to take it back because it stopped working and the sticker on the battery when i purchased it says “9/11”, clearly i still have warranty on my battery BUT does auto zone care? No they do not! They told me i could not return it because i could not remember the phone number I used when i purchased it. I called corporate to verify what they told me is true and I left my number so someone could call me back. A man from the Port Charlotte Office called me back and was EXTREMELY RUDE! I told him that he did not need to treat me so rude, he even laughed at me and i asked him to stop he continued to be rude and finally he hung up on me. I WILL NEVER GO TO AUTO ZONE AGAIN. THEY DO NOT CARE ABOUT ANYONE’S FEELINGS AND I AM SIMPLY DISGUSTED WITH CORPORATE AND THE LOCAL AUTO ZONE. SO SO DISAPPOINTED!!!

I was trying to apply online today for an job with autozone. I had to clicked on I am a new applicant to register as one. For the applicant login as a new user I had to put in my email address and then do it again to confirm it. Afterwards I had to put in an password and then put it in again to confirm it which none of this was no problem. So when I finished doing that I clicked register and proceeded on with my application. While I was doing that I accidentally clicked on continue with resume or something that says something like that but I didn’t mean to click on that because I don’t have no resume. I meant to click on continue without no resume or something like that. I do have employment history but I mean I didn’t put no resume together so I just wanted to continue on just putting my employment history on my application without no resume but it wouldn’t let me do that it wanted me to use an resume instead. After that happened to me I tried to reapply again with my same email address without using a resume but it wouldn’t let me do it that way so I decided to just go on ahead and continue with a resume but then now it wouldn’t let me do that either. Since it wouldn’t I just made me a new email address through yahoo hoping that it would let me then continue on. But after I made my new email address through yahoo I tried to use it as my new user name because on the application it asked for your email address as your user name and I put in a new password right after that and then typed it in again because it wanted me to do that to confirm it and it still wouldn’t let me continue on. It then said that user name already exists. After I put all of that info. in and clicked on register it then said that the user name I used which happened to be my new email address, it said that user name already exists. But that can’t be true because yahoo let me create it today and yahoo would of told me that, that user name already exists but it didn’t say that at all. Yahoo let me use that as my new email address. So I’m confused on why the application for autozone it telling me this. So now I’m pretty much stuck at the very beginning of my application where I register for a new user name. Can you please help in this situation, is there anything I can do in the login part to where they will let me use my new user name which is my new email address for yahoo. Please help me please because I really want to work for autozone. I would be happy to work for the company. Is there anything yall can do to help me out in being able to proceed on with my application for the part where I register as a new user? I appreciate it if yall could help me out with this situation, thanks

My father told me that I have to pay or else they wouldnt order it that he had the same issue weeks before so I called again and asked for reconfirmation I also told employee my dad had a similar problem thay I needed my part and to please make sure it would be there. Well today when my father when to check if the part would be there on time they responded that the part was never order and their was nothing they can do!! They shrug their shoulders and sent him to far away store. this is beyond out of control I have a job to go to and bills to pay I dont need to waste my time with Auto zone playing games as a valueble cuatomer I deserve to be treated hood with good cutiner service and with reliable information I do not deserve to be waited my time and receive bad customer service!!!!

I am (was) a customer of Autozone but now I am beginning to reconsider my choices. Today, my wife and I were driving and I was expressing to her that I would like to purchase some new decals and emblems for my pick up truck. I have been looking at the available options on the Autozone website.

A few minutes later while driving, we saw the Autozone located, at the following address: 24250 5 Mile RD, Redford Charter Township, Michigan 48239. Excitedly, my wife and I decided to stop and purchase the emblems and decals I saw on the website from the store location.

I was headed strait for the decals location and my wife asked the store representative (Gregory) to use the restroom. Before being able to show my wife to the restroom, a man that I later discovered was one of the store’s managers (BARRY), stated that the store does not have public restrooms and told my wife to go across the street to a McDonalds restaurant.

I pleaded with BARRY to allow my wife to use the bathroom and explained that we are paying customers and are here to make a purchase in the store. Without even stopping to look at me while speaking with me, Barry interjected that he is not going to stop what he is doing to deal with us and that he already directed us to go across the street to McDonalds and that it does not matter that we are paying customers.

In my personal view, if it is a store policy to not allow paying customers to use the store/employee bathroom, there should be a sign that state as such. In addition, Barry did not treat me as a human being treats another human being. Barry could have stopped what he was doing to take a few minutes to address us as a store customer. In plain English, Barry was rude to us and this agitated me and caused me to leave the store without making the purchase. If Barry does not like his job as the sales manager, he should allow some other person to have that position.

By my estimates, we intended on spending about $30 on 3 emblems or more. But we left the store and ended up spending nothing. I also do not ever plan to visit any Autozone stores. I will visit one of your many competitors instead.

Just wanted to say that I have seen many store managers come and go at the north oak trafficway location,in Kansas city mo. and have been unhappy in the past management and the help.They were rude, they did not take the time with my son.This time a woman helped us out, and she said she would check the check engine light and help us with the warranty on my sons car, and she did, I later found out, that the woman helping me was the store manager, she found what no one else took the time to do, look it up on the computer she found it , the warranty information on my sons car, and the last guys said no there was no warranty on my brakes . She took the time with my son and I and helped us to get the right part for my sons car, the throttle pressure sensor was out, and she helped us get it and printed off some directions to help us to put it on. I did not know you could do that and the diagnostic on my sons car was free.My sons car is a mess, and we have been working on it for awhile. We really need this car running, so we were shocked with how her and her staff have helped us.They were all very helpful to us.This was a good experience and we will now go back again. Thank you my sons car is running again, and we have brakes.

. Autozone is paying labor claims in cash. Totally inappropriate. Designed to enable store employees to pocket the cash payments. Credit should be issued to the customers account —not cash to random personnel.
Local Autozone management is marketing this perk to win business.

Pissed off!
Went to auto zone to purchase oil on my 2014 challenger rt. Wasn’t sure what oil it required so I asked the Auto zone parts representative. He looked at the computer and claimed he didn’t have the information for correct type of oil.(Really! Pep boys has all information for old and new vehicles) He said to use 5W/30 since it was a new Car. I will say this auto zone sucks! That cost me over $400.00 to change out sensors, correct oil 5W/20, flush, control valve plus labor.

Mr.Rhodes,
I am writing to you because I was completely shocked to hear that the store manager from the East Henrietta Auto zone is no longer there. I really can’t understand why you guys would let go of such a compassionate and hard working person. I have only dealt with Auto Zone because of him. He was so helpful and every time that I went to the store he was busting his butt making sure everything is being run smoothly. I even would drive the 30 minutes out to the Henrietta location just for his service. I have been a loyal customer and I am not going to say I have been loyal to Auto Zone I have been loyal to him. I have known him since he was the assistant manager at the Spencerport road store. Which was only minutes from my home, so I drove the distance to his his new store once he became store manager. I am writing this to make sure you understand the kind of service that he was representing for you. There have been so many times that I drove out to the Henrietta location and on occasions he wasn’t working that day and I had to deal with other “managers” who were so dismissive and out right rude. I than made the cautious decision to call the store to make sure that the STORE MANAGER was there. If this is the way you want your business to be represented than I truly feel sorry for you guys, because you are going to loose a lot of customers and a lot of business. But to be honest you guys are the ones that are loosing something a hardworking, positive, and caring person. And he may honestly be better off it disgusts me that you treat your employees as a number and not of a person. Shame on you all, with all of that said I will never walk into any Auto Zone store I would rather pay triple the price else where and hope to one day find an employee as hard working as your ex store manager at the Henrietta store in Rochester NY.

Jennifer April 30, 2014 at 9:58 pm

Mr.Rhodes, I am very disappointed that your human resource dept let go a very hard working store manager at the Henrietta store. I feel that what they did was wrong and not fair that he busted his a** for people even on his day off and made him work on his days off and treat him like a slave . There will be days he works and not even getting a break so he can make the best for customer service so you guys don’t lose customers and money . That shows you that working for the company is not treating there employees like employees and treating them like slaves ! I am so furious that this would happen to a better person and moved up quick in the company. We should report you guys to the better business bureau caus what they did was not fair! Karma what goes around will come around for sure! You will lose lots of sales at that store now and customers and even employees will start to go one by one and probably go to other competitors and I don’t blame them. This is not over just beginning to better things! Your loss! Could of been a really good thing but you will see what the outcome will bring at that store! Not fair!

Im from the st . Peters Missouri area.. Autozone store #0236 7235 E. mexico rd In st. peters. Everyone has a bad day sooner or later It happens when you deal with the public. I know I did it for 25+ years. but store #0236 is a joke. Something is wrong when customers come in and wait. no one at the front counter, several customers waiting to talk to some one.. I had to yell to see if anyone was in the store. I hear a voice from the far back end of the store. Said I’ll be right there. Right behind the wall behind the registers I could here someone typing, when the person made to the front of the store. he couldn’t use the register he was locked out . The guy typing behind the wall and had to unlock the register. He looked at me like I was disturbing him. This sort of service happens all the time at this store. I normally don’t go to this store for this reason but I went today to buy some oil dry. I guarantee you I wont make that mistake again. Customer service Is a big thing today. If you don’t give good service patrons will go somewhere else to get it. store 0236’s P/L statement should show this. But like most business today All they care about is there corporate bonuses. I retired from a very large company bigger than yours and I watch this company go from a thriving entity to being on the ropes and circling the drain. Now personaly I don’t care if AZ goes down the drain or not because I don’t plan on going back in your store . So if you would like to contact me feel free. But truthfully I don’t think that will happen and that’s a shame. And with the scope of the reviews ive read the drain is getting closer and closer………………..

AUTO ZONE STOLE MY CAR!!
If your car wont start DONT YOU DARE leave it at AUTO ZONE!! they will have your car towed illegally! It wont matter that your buying products from them to fix it and conferring with the employees about your situation. Which is what happened to me, I have the receipts to prove how much money I spent on the advise of the employees there that my car just needed ONE MORE THING and then it would start…until finally when a mechanic got there, they didn’t even have the part that I actually needed, so I told them I would send a tow truck for my car….however when my driver got there my car was already gone, towed at my expense by Auto Zone….Which would have been free since I work for a towing company! Since I am a Dispatcher at a major Towing Company, I KNOW what can and cannot be towed legally and without signs posted stating that your car will be towed its stealing. To make the whole situation worse nobody would admit to having the car towed so it took forever to even find my car!! I am not even upset anymore, I am just pursuing legal action against ALL PARTIES INVOLVED!! I WONT EVER DO BUSINESS WITH AUTOZONE AGAIN AND I RECOMMEND NOONE ELSE DOES EITHER…there are plenty of other reputable auto parts stores that are not out to screw over their patrons!!!

Visited Auto Zone on Dysart and McDowell in Goodyear AZ store 2727 about an hour less than close. When walking in, noticed a very nice gentleman waiting outside with his hood up. He appeared to have been waiting on an employee to come and change his battery out. It appeared he had already been in contact with one of the two employees working. I proceeded to walk in noticing two male employees who I came to find out later were Eduardo and Rene. It was immediately apparent that both employees were overly consumed with a gentleman about his special performance car. No one was attending to the man outside and I could see he was growing impatient too. To assist a customer was one thing but for both employees to be overly consumed with one, taking their time very slowly and deliberately while joking intermittently, being lax about the other two customer’s needs gets old quickly. It became obvious to me they were familiar with this person or even perhaps knew him well as a friend or such because their conversation was more of hobby men then professionals…speaking about non relevant issues as well as high performance parts that were costing a fortune. I guessed the customer was spending a great deal of money and that trumped their interest over both of us who were just simply trying to get battery assistance to move forward. Every time Rene left the shop,to assist this guy or to take his car for a test drive across the lot Eduardo couldn’t get into the computer system without a password from Rene. So, both of us were left waiting for Rene to wrap up his business for which he never did for the entire time I was there which was 45 minutes until I was prepared to leave the business. FInally, the man outside was helped and shoved off now I was the last one left waiting. I explained to Eduardo that my battery was dying and I would need another. I told him I just purchased a battery there within the last 2 years. First he asked for my paperwork which I told him was at home. Then I asked him if he couldn’t look me up by phone number. He located two of my records on his computer and I immediately pointed them out. He quickly asked if I had another number for which puzzled me because he had already located the two records for which my battery was purchased with a 2 year warranty. I gave an alternate number and he pulled a 3rd record up on the an alternate computer. He immediately attempted to use the old number on the alternate computer to convince me that the sale of my battery was in 2010. I insisted he was using the old purchase of a different item on that year and that he was simply refusing to look at the much more recent record. After my insistence he pulled up the correct, more recent purchase and I pointed out that the battery was purchased on 07/26/2012 which meant that my battery was under warranty still. He attempted to claim that battery was not for this car. I told him that it was in fact for the 2010 corolla that I currently own. He asked if that vehicle was out front and I showed him that it was. He immediately said if the bad didn’t test bad, he coudln’t replace it. Time and time again he tried to disqualify my warranty. I insisted it was bad and that the vehicle that I purchased that battery for was in fact one in the same. He came out, checked the battery ascertained that it was bad and in fact validated that the battery was theirs and the same one that was listed on the computer. Now, he went to the back and brought out a battery that didn’t look anywhere the same as what I had. When I inquired he explained away the fact by saying the battery had changed and now was more updated, specific to our weather yatta yatta yaatta……but what he couldn’t explain to my satisfaction was the fact that the numbers of the crank and another category were much lower on the new one than the one I exchanged. I asked if he could print me off his computer the one that I had purchased that he had pulled up on his screen and he refused. I asked him to print the one that I was receiving and he did so. I asked if he could provide any documentation to me for the one that I was replacing so that when I got home family could compare the one that I replaced with the type of the one I was receiving. He refused. I asked if I could keep the bad battery so we could compare when I got home he refused. Immediately I felt as if he was sending me out the door with a much less quality, less effective, less powerful and possibly a substandard battery than the one I paid for. I told him I thought he was sending me away with one that may not last as long and wouldn’t be as powerful. He was dismissive claiming they were the same under a different code…but the fact remained that the numbers reflecting performance were much lower on the one that he was giving me under the warranty. Finally I noticed Rene finished up his lengthy visit with the other gentleman because I asked Eduardo for a business card and asked him where his corporate location was. Rene butted in and said why is there a problem? Now he decided to engage? really? I said Eduardo is handling this for me but insisted on a business card. Both claimed their business does not have one. Rene said they were always saying they were going to print some up but had failed to do so thus far. I inquired about the corporate location again and Eduardo said it was in Scottsdale. It was at this time that I found out both their names. Rene claimed to be the manager. He then walked back out and handed me a makeshift card with the name “Mike C. manager” on it. I asked Eduardo if this “new” battery had 2 years on it or if it too would be defective and he said no, it will only cover you until July 2012 like you had purchased. So I immediately thought he gave me a second rate battery sending me with a substandard one that may not even be new and I suspected I would be back around that time frame to purchase another. I left the store. I wanted to make sure that everyone is aware of the tactics they pull to try to disuade you from exercising your right for a warranty replacement. This was very deceptively handled all the way around. By the way did I mention that I strongly believed that because I am a minority female and the man that waited outside happened to be African American? Strong preference was given to only one customer and a bulk of their time, effort and eagerness to assist went to their favored customer…..

If the customer wanted to get his battery installed at a faster pace than perhaps he should’ve paid someone to put it in. Autozone does it as a free service, so if someone inside requires two employees to complete a sale than the free installation will have to wait. Why were you upset that he would not replace the battery if it did not test bad? Many companies that test the batteries for free don’t hire employees that have automotive knowledge. So if AAA tested it and said it was bad, that would not mean its bad, could also be a loose/dirty connection, bad ground wire, or corrosive terminals. And why did you feel you deserved a new warranty on a new battery that didn’t cost you anything.

I needed some freeze plugs for my vehicle and nobody had all 7 that i needed. Well talk about going above and beyond, David went out of HIS way to get all the freeze plugs together (they were in different stores) and bring them to the N.Main St store so i could pick them up! Take about your taking care of the customer! This action that David did was EXEMPLARY! and deserves recognition to the fullest extent!
You don’t hear about employees going out of THERE way to satisfy the customer and to also show that Auto Zone is truly the “Customers Choice” in Automotive needs. I hope you will talk too David about his Unselfish attitude and desire to satisfy a customer. I’m still in awe over this and am Loyal Auto Zone customer for life! Hat’s off to David and to his dedication to service and to see that Auto Zone will continue to prosper due to his attention to customer service. Your truly Martin B. Canales

I was at your store today store 1086 iVisit that store frequently because I live 2 blocks away from the store.I am NOT very pleased with the service at that location discount auto store is another 2 blocks away but I choose to go to Autozone.today I was in line for nearly 30 minutes me and another gentleman I watched the line grew to about 8 people.3 clerks were taking care of customers, and I counted three other persons in the back room.I waited in front of the register to return the tool, and one of the managers redirected me to wait in the line.he knew that there were a lot of people out on the floor waiting for service and no one came out to help the customers.I asked to speak to a manager,and instead of inquiring about my complaints managers and staff remained quiet.the other issue that I have with that store is that they close the doors early before closing time

Yesterday 3/23/14 my wife had a few errands to run and auto zone was one of them . She parked in auto zone ‘s parking lot and walked across the street with my children . When she returned to auto zone parking our vehicle had been towed even though she planned to purchase windshield wiper blades and a tail light . Come to find out after the full runaround that the assistant manager marks the pavement with the time that you park your vehicle . When I arrived there were three tow trucks circling the premises like sharks . Plenty of parking available . Pictures to prove it . After 20 minutes you are towed . $300.00 dollars it cost to get our vehicle . Management was shameless and a disgrace to your great name . I am a rewards customer . I’ve never been treated so horribly and felt so violated by any establishment in my life . Who thought killing two birds with one stone would cost $300.00 This took place at the Auto Zone in Lynwood CA. Imperial highway . When I went the get my car out of impound person after person showed up the exact situation . Same location . Management lied and said towing is a last resort when there is no parking available . I know how the towing business works and is a priority vs a necessity at this location . A lot of money involved . I called corporate to explain what’s going on and was given a number that is a voice mail to the district manager that hasn’t returned my calls . Disgusting nauseating situation .

Brett I had the same thing happen to me, only I did buy stuff from the employees urging there just to be towed…BAD BUSINESS!! I am a dispatcher for the towing company in our area that tows for the police departments and know for a fact in our area unless you have sign posted stating that vehicles will be towed at the owners expense it is considered stealing, im unsure about Californias laws but I plan on taking legal action against AUTO ZONE….I just hope other people start reading these comments and start using ANYONE ELSE BESIDES AUTO ZONE!!

I have a complaint about Autozone choice of location for stores to build. Why would you build a store that’s about 5-10miles from each other. Cabot,Ar has a store and your going to build a store in Beebe,Ar. How much sense is that? Your going to take customers away from the Cabot store. But my thing is this, you have all those stores around there, Cabot, BeeBe ” new store “, Jacksonville, Sherwood & NLR #23.
Lonoke, Arkansas needs a store!!! A lot of ppl drive from Lonoke, Ar to Sherwood,Ar. Now you do the math on gas prices, I spend 20-30mins driving to a store to get parts & if I have the wrong parts that’s another 20-30mins. You do that about 4x’s that’s a lot of gas.
BUILD A STORE IN LONOKE,ARKANSAS

Now I have recently visited your store at 1801 E. Keihl Ave, Sherwood, Ar ( store #372 ) and I was more than thrilled to be in the hands of an autozone employee who knew what he was talking about & gave me the correct part & told me what it will do and estimated how long it will take before I noticed anything.
I went back today 3/23/2014 and the young man was there & this time I looked at his name tag and the name on his tag displayed Shahn Freeman. I spoke with him and I admire his knowledge and effort to be patient and help me with my issues. If you build a store in Lonoke, Arkansas , this the guy who should be giving them hands on training, and I just mite have found myself a new hire. But if I ever see this young man again, I will truly encourage him to come work in Law Enforcement & to work in our HR department. Thanks for the experience & store 372 is now officially my new parts store to shop at all because of this man Shahn Freeman.

I recently experience the worse costumer service over the phone, and person.
by the store manager name Eddy at this store # 5656.
autoze needs to take consideration on this matter since the worse customer service is given
by the own store manager. AUTOZONE Needs do a back round check on this guy.
Try to fight to a costumer? something is going on whit this store manager.
AUTOZONE ( 5656 ) Need to take care of this guy before something happens to a costumer.

Today is 3/15/14 I was in ur store at 4:25pm on division street in arlington to pick up a air filter I put on hold wen I walked in there were two ppl standing in line by the door so stood in line. One of ur employees i believe his name was julius who was bout 40 yrs old dark skinned wearing a gray shirt n jacket was standing at a computer wouldnt even even look at any of us the lady at front of line walked up to him n very nicely asked if they could check her engine light the man he said no she looked confused asked again n said her car was right in front of door. He then snapped at her by saying im not taking our machines out in this weather (it was bearly even sprinkling at that time) as he told her that he pointed at next person in line n checked them out. I then scooted up in line n waited to be called on as he went back to his computer. A guy stood behind me for a min then walked in front of me n got checked out by this same employee, I then spoke up n said excuse me sir but I was next ur employee snapped no u wernt I was helping him before all of u (wen this customer came up with wiper blades from back of store) I said oh excuse me but I didnt know. He snapped again and said the line is over there if u want help (and pointed at the ropes where u stand in line) I said no need for ur attitude I just stood behind the ppl that were in front of me wen I came in that u were so rude to. Then another employee named Johnathan was very sweet n checked me out I asked for the other mans name who was rude n he got a very scared look on his face like he would lose his job or something I then said dont worry bout iy ill get his name. While I was swiping my card to pay the rude employee covered his name tag n walked to the back. I know my mother has applied at auto zone and never got a job n she is very knowledgeable in cars n the sweetest lady I know yet yall employ a man that treats customers the way he did. I will not be going to auto zone ever again I will now go to O Rylie’s.

I bought two radiator hoses for my car in Dec from the Woodstock IL location. It was freezing for all of Dec, Jan, and Feb. Now that it is warm out side I went to go pick it up and got told that they sent it back because it was sitting over a week and the product had not be moved, I had already paid for the hoses and never got notified that if it wasn’t picked up with in a week it would be sent back and they never told me it was sent back they just kept my money for four months like it was no big deal. Which is stealing. I will never go back to another auto zone again they are theifs. And reading at the bottom to make sure they see this I have to like them on Facebook, bulls*** is this whole company. I don’t like you and I won’t like you on Facebook to get you more attention for being a crappy company. FYI you want to keep customers treat people better.

Store #5460 in Palmdale California is terrible. I have never had an auto parts place charge me for 3 of an item I only needed one of then not have the one I paid for. Two reversed floating in limbo plus the one I needed ($349 floating in limbo because it was debted then reversed) but the returns policy is 3-5 days (funny how they can take the money immediately but take days to return it) but could be as much as 10 days. District manager Ernie unhelpful and not responsive and regional office (Sabrina and Connie) could care less. On hold forever, promised call backs I never got and still no money returned, only receipts and paperwork.

I am sure that neither Mr. Rhodes of Mr. Giles read these or care but profit will be affected. Karma is that way.

hello, my name is john and ive been a satisfied customer since i owned my first vehicle, id like to compliment middletown rhode island branch for beeing terrific, The gm carmine is a great guy and is really quick to help a customer.Recently my girlfriend and i tried to return a alternator beeing dissattisfied with it having to replace it multiple times every 8 to 12 months. and store policy came into play.I understand that parts are manufactured in mexico and any returned part is shipped back and rebuilt or remanufatured to proper specs,Solely Not your Fault This Part Fails, But With a lifetime warranty that is highly misunderstood ,I Feel it should be mentioned prior to purchase so that their can be no confusion or frustration for all of us loyal customers. Regardless of the outcome i received when contacting coorperate, im still very happy to have autozone as my parts dealer . And We all Must keep In Mind Without Struggle Their Is No Success, in other words ,Crap Happens Deal With It, Thank You Very Much For Allowing Us to Rant About how good or how bad you are, Atleast you have a comments page.

Purchased a battery charger for about $80.00. While attempting to charge a battery a week ago, it began smoking inside.

I was not told at the time of purchase Autozone would not warranty it. I did not learn about this until I attempted to return the item.

Customers should be informed when and when not items are not under store warranty.

Also, my wife was in the Liberty, Tx store and they would not wait on her rather they kept waiting on men customers that came in several minutes after she did. This is not the first time this has happened in the Liberty, TX. store.

Purchase a engine for my 1969 Chevy and after having it installed it never worked properly. At the advice of your Customer Service agent, I had it checked by two separate certified mechanics (additional charges I had to pay). Both mechanics stated the same problem, “Had a bad engine”. AutoZone replaced the engine and I again paid to have it installed. Your warranty states that if the item is defective and is replaced you will reimburse up to $800 for labor cost. I have spent twice the price of the engine in labor cost to install in my vehicle. When you received the bad engine back, AutoZone stated that there was “nothing wrong with the engine” . Two different Certified Mechanics stated otherwise. Just a convenient way to “Rip off” the consumer by selling products you really don’t guarantee… Your warranty means nothing if you refuse to honor its contents.

My husband worked at Autozone . He recently quit because it was a horrible place to work.
When he started he told them he knew nothing about working on cars. They said it was fine. He assumed he would be trained but they never trained him.
The “manager” was very unprofessional. Seems like everyone working at Autozone is a manager. The managers can also not hire or fire employees.
So you have a ton of people working at one store that are managers.
No one has any idea what they are doing.
You do have to buy your own shirt from Autozone but my husband was making 8.36 a hour. YES 8.36. What is that ? Why the .36 … because your first raise is .14 !
My husband was hired part time which is 25 to 30 hours. He never worked those hours.
his schedule would always be 38 right under 40 hours. However with the new law any time over 30 hours you get health insurance . Over 30 hours is full time !
Shady company. unprofessional. With the employees and with the customers.
The employees are NOT trained to do any work on your vehicle.

I worked for autozone for 11 1/2 years. It was my experience that they were a great company to work for. My husbands health is the only reason I left. The people who work for AutoZone are not hired to be mechanics. You change batteries and wipers. That is about the worst of it in my experience. In my experience, I was trained to use equipment in the store and the OBDII machine . It gives diagnostic codes but you are not supposed to work on customers cars. Therefore, there would be no need for “training” to “work on your vehicle.” I have been gone from AZ for probably 5 years now, and will still stand behind my belief that they are a great company.

Kay,
You are a moron!! I worked for autozone as well. You are right, we did not work on customer vehicles except for battery installations, wiper blade replacement, light bulb replacement, battery/starter/alternator testing and OBDII code scanning. However, knowledge about parts and products(sound familiar?) are key to customer service. Especially when 80% of autozone’s customers are mechanics (commercial). When I started I knew very little about cars. I could do oil changes, change a flat tire and replace a battery. As far as training goes, autozone did not train me. I trained myself. I guess that’s not 100% accurate. Autozone trained me to run their POS system (cash register), sell “Witts” (Witts are add on sales like useless grease packets, battery terminal protectors, etc.), COC’s (checkout challenge), how to open and close the store, and how to f*** over customers. That’s about it. Seeing that I refused to f*** over customers, who are the reason retailers are in business, my employment was terminated. Autozone is not a good company. They are just another corporation looking to squeeze every dollar they can out of their customers as they can. Also, paying their employees as little as possible, yet working them like dogs!! So, If you want to stand behind autozone good for you. Just know that whatever fantasy world you have created in your useless brain… Is not real!!! Autozone is a s*** company that sells s*** products, has s*** employees with s*** customer service. I would love to hear your reply 😉

Maybe because autozone isn’t a shop? Its a retail store. Does home depot install your toilet for you too? Also their dress code is red knit polo. Not required to purchase from autozone. Also wrong about managers being able to fire/hire. Basically everything you said now sounds stupid.

Mr. Rhodes
I would like to inform you of how I was treated by your employees at the Auto Zone located at 330 Broadway in Bedford, Ohio 44146.
The phone number is 440-439-9911
I purchased a Sylvania Halogen Bulb for $10.99..cost is not the issue…the issue is how I was treated once i made my purchase.
I have purchased many items for my vehicle at your store many times and I was never treated this way.
I went to your store on February 3, 2014..I purchased the bulb..I asked the guy if he would put it in for me..he came outside looked at me car..which is a pontiac grand am and he said no i won’t put it in..i asked him why..he said he wanted to go home, it was too dark outside to see..and he wanted to go home. I was sortof taken aback by that comment, he said come back tomorrow.
I came back on the 4th asked them to put in my light..explained what happened the guy said he couldnt do it either cuz he would have to take my bumper off..come on now i have had this headlight light bulb replqced many times and not one guy ever had to remove my bumper.
So I thought I would come back again on the 5th..I did..I was told they didn’t have time..I was the ONLY one there.
I finally to my car on the 8th to an auto body shop and they replaced the bulb in less than ten minutes .

i purchased a battery from auto zone and the employee offered to put the battery in my car for me.. of course i allowed him to do so thinking he knew what he was doing.. well he didnt.. he didnt fasten the battery down properly so within a few days my car had electrically shorted out the system which almost caught my car on fire fried the battery completely and costing me $400.00 dollars to have it fixed…also because i allowed another company to install the battery the deaership company where i purchased my car from voids any electrical warranties that i had.. so be cautious when letting someone install a batery into a new car..

I was at the autozone store in Oildale,Ca the store is located on no.chester ave and I witness’d the store manager sexually harassing one of the stores female employee’s by saying rude and what he wanted to do to her .He made the remark that he wanted the two of them to go to a motel and have sex .I feel that this is very disrespectful and that the female employee was infact very upset about the remark this Hispanic manager was saying ; the company that I work at we have a zero tolerance towards any type of sexual remarks made to the females that work there the person that make s such remarks a terminated on the spot .U’r manager should also be terminated.If the manager is treating the female employee’s this way why is he still there ,the company that I am employed buy’s a lot of autoparts from u .More than likely if the manager isn’t fired when I go in there to pick up parts and if he ever disrespect this female employee in my presents I will take proper steps to help this woman to obtain an attorney ;

My fiancée was a very loyal employee for 4 years. Last July is when he got fired or that is what he was told. He had a district manager that knew how he worked. Her name was Valerie. She stepped down to a store manager and by this time last year Shoney was the new district manager. In 2012 that store had a bad inventory everyone that was there for that year got fired except Chris. The new potential manger heard good things and wanted him there or so we thought. With everyone being fired they brought in with the new store manager a new employee name James. The new store managers name was Patrick. Well soon after these new employees came in money from the safe came up missing primarily on days where James was working. You have to understand the situation a bit more. This store has NO cameras and everyone who has the code to safe has access to the money whether they are clocked in or not. So what does this mean if I was a manger and today is my day off and I wanted to steal money well all I have to do is go in and take it. See my point here. Ok well Patrick says he knows that my fiancé is not stealing which in four years not one single safe shortage keeps assuring my fiancé that they will catch James.one night my finance is the closing manager and James leaves for the day. Safe gets counted and it’s all good Chris goes to back and the employee witnesses James come back in. Chris closes store and has employee watch and count money and surprise $100 is missing after James went to back. My finances calls Patrick to let him know what’s going on and says to him that only $100 was missing. The next day Patrick and another manager opens and Patrick is the only one that counts safe and now the safe is short $200. Hmm really after there is a witness that only $100 is gone so my fiancé is informed of this before he goes in and we go to the police station to file a report because this will fall back on my fiancé and put the blame on him. He goes in and that’s when he is told he was FIRED. He got handed a right up he soon goes back to the police station and the detective makes a trip to Auto Zone. When my fiancé goes to get his pink slip all of a sudden the story changes. About a week prior to this he puts a two weeks in because he didn’t want stealing on his record because this was turning out bad. He wanted to leave and let James get caught. They said that they let my fiancé go early on his two weeks. The guy who witnessed James returning to the store and witnessed the safe shortage of only $100 was told if he said anything he was fired!!! So obviously this was something to be covered up. The cop that went up there got banned from the store!! There is some shady shit going on at this Auto Zone but what I am pissed at is today January 2014 months later my fiancé went to the store to buy something for his truck and was told he was banned from store. Ummm he has been up there buying parts before and it was no problem. And not only did they tell him that he couldn’t be there but threatened to call the police!! He didn’t leave the store cussing or threatening anyone when he was fired he left peacefully now he will get arrested when he was NEVER informed that he was not allowed there. So yeah I will not be shopping there again and it’s too bad because we are planning to buy almost 2k in parts but whatever what goes around comes around and karma is a b****

Went to local autozone to buy a battery for my truck . I picked one out and went to pay. Otaped on the battery was a pack of red an green felt rings that gobaround the terminals and a pack of terminal grease. Clerk rang up my purchase i thought the items taped to the battery was free till i got home and looked at my receipt . Was not asked if i wanted them just rang up. Every battery there had them i thought it was a holiday promotion or something. Times must be getting hard when you have to pull stunts like this to meet the bottom line. The cheapest battery still came to over a 100.00 after taxes an extra two items added an the core. I felt douped

I have a 1999 Mitsubishi Diamante, and I have been purchasing all my car parts at AutoZone. I understand all AutoZone stores link together, and supervisors should know how to talk and help customers. But Tyrone H. who is supervisor at 13903 West Dixie Highway North Miami, FL 33161 doesn’t have any customer service skill and doesn’t know anything about products in the store. I went to exchange my Alternator which I purchased a year ago, and I have a life guarantee on it. He looked at my Alternator and compared it with a new one. he said, “this alternator is not for AutoZone, and they don’t make this mode” I told him that someone in the store gave me this alternator, and I am not going to buy one for 138.99+tax; I wanted to speak with a supervisor. Because he is the supervisor, he said, “I am not going to agree with you AutoZone do not make this mode” and he walked away. I cannot believe it how comes I bought a part and he told me I have a wrong alternator like I was trying to trick him. Then, I decided to go to another autozone which I drove 7 miles to get at 17552 Northwest 27th Avenue Carol City, FL 33056. When I got there, a gentleman with gray shirt helped me, and he got me an alternator exactly like mine with same code #. When I explained to him what happened in that other store, he told me straight up this guy didn’t want to help you, and he didn’t want to do the same thing by look at the back store for it. he made my day and I have my car running good again. I will never go back in that store on west Dixie H. ever again.

Autozone employees are NOT mechanics. Top off your own fluids and if there is an issue, then you can thank yourself. Or take it to your mechanic who will charge you an arm and a leg to top off your fluids IF they will do it if you bring in your own stuff. Geesh…give these guys a break . They are working for a living and not recieving mechanic pay!

To whom it may concern, I recently went to AutoZone in eaglepass,tx 78852.
I had already called in about a timing belt for my truck and the person on the phone was really helpful and even told me thaty he was double checking the availability of the part. After he told me it was in stock I asked my dad to pick it up for me because I was at work. We’ll it turned out that the two employees were contradicting eachother on the availability. They told my dad to return for the part at a later time and we did only to find out that it was the wrong one during installation. When I returned the next morning to exchange or return the rude store manager found that the belt was there the whole time the right one. His me Gilberto g. And he did all possible not to sell it to me for some reason. I don’t know what his problem is but he didn’t seem to know what he was doing not to mention he kept jumping around from customer to customer. Very unprofessional manager. The lady manager on the other hand was trying to ask if we needed any help because I guess she noticed his rudene

I’m writing to you regarding a recent visit and purchase i made at your Foley , Al. AutoZone . I purchased an alternator there and was treated very rudely , that is once i got someone to acknowledge me at all . The man’s name was David , he had a terrible , i don’t care kind of attitude and was very condescending . When i had to return the alternator a few days later , after breaking down on the highway , because it was no good , i was informed that he was the store manager . In my opinion makes it even more unacceptable . I was refunded my money , but incurred a towing fee and more labor charges for having a second one installed , not to mention the aggravation of sitting on the highway waiting for help but also being late for work . I realize its not a perfect world and situations happen , but i would feel alot better about the whole thing if i had been treated with some kindness and courtesy while at your store , instead of being made to feel like they didnt care if they had my business or not . What has happened to customer service these days ? It seems to have become a thing of the past . I hope that you’ll address this situation before it happens to another customer that walks in to that store , giving what i once thought was a good company a bad reputation .
Sincerely , Glenda Wilson

Does this company even train there workers any kind of customer service skills at all? I don’t think so. I was at the 24 hour autozone on N. Nellis Blvd. in Las Vegas Nv. I stood in line for 20min when I was the next customer patiently waiting when the workers had a dispute amongst themselves then the phone rang and they answered the phone before taking care of the customers in front of them. Then the girl asks me I I’m paying cash I tell her yes then she tells me I have to stand in the other line which had 3 people waiting already. Why don’t they have a sign saying cash customers stand in this line? This is worst customer service I have ever experienced. I will never return to Autozone again. They need to hire people that speak & also understand English language. This is America people not Mexico……

I was also wrongfully terminated because I had contacted a vice president at Auto Zone Corporate to inform him of problems with the regional manager and HR person, they waited three months afterwards and then did it on the same day that I began receiving social security.

I too was recenyly fired from autozone unjustly. my sm gave me 6 attendance points for a day that according to autozone pilicy should have been 0. He refused my dr note n verifaction of medical visit. I missed 4 days of work 3 of which were medical related with dr verifacations n I followed policy callin n an hr n half prior. He then used a hopitalization, stemming from the visit he gave me 6pts for, which had dr note also as a show of pattern. he lued on my termination paper. Now I witnesses major policy violations while employd but I lose my job becuz I had emergency mesical issues. its B.S. n I’m climbing the chain because if ima lose my job because of medical issues he refused to accept d ocumentation for then why’s he ge t to keep hiz sharing passwords sliding merchandise sexual comments n favortism.

Does Auto Zone have an integrity hotline for their employees? My brother works for them and when our mother was admitted to ICU on life support the manager was mad he was missing work. He went back after 4 days off and got attitude, he’s not even sure if the manager will let him use sick or vacation time!! And instead if letting him leave early to see his mother in the hospital he let other employees off. My brother won’t speak up cause he needs his job and actually likes what he does. Unfortunately Auto Zone doesn’t care about their employees emergency issues!!

My husband buys a starter at an Autozone that was not tested prior to purchase and was installed only to find out it was DEAD. Furious. Was told it was a manufacturer issue…really? Do you not stick these starters? Are you not required to test these rebuilt starters prior to charging the customer 150.00 and the time to install it only to find out all that time is WASTED as what was sold was a DEAD starter. A FURIOUS customer who will CERTAINLY make sure that ANYONE we know goes else where to purchase any car parts that are needed seeing that store manager seemed to think it was really no big deal just bring it back…. Not always are they tested things get overlooked. I totally disagree. You call yourself a ” professional” outfit. Act like one. I will be taking my complaint to the BBB as well so other consumers know. It took my husband who is not a trained mechanic a few hours to get it in only to learn it was no good. Really bad business and really unfair. You should be ashamed that you sell dead parts.

Hello I’m having a problem with products at autozone.I have a 2003 Cadillac Escalade Ext and I had been buying parts there being told that the parts are OEM parts,We’ll come to find out their not they are aftermarket parts.I bought some foglights there and the guy there told me the were original parts for my truck after having them assembled they blew out my ballast that run my low beam headlights.I contacted the autozone where I bought them from and they tried blowing smoke up my ass telling me they are going to replace the foglights we’ll if they had them why in the hell didn’t they sell me the right ones in the first place.Im not giving in they will replace my ballast if I have to hire an attorney.Replacing the foglights aren’t going to fix what the aftermarket ones messed up.Be careful when told of original parts at autozone.

I complained about motor mounts order back in September 2013. One was ordered on 09/25/2013 before 2pm which was to arrive the next day, I ordered two more after 2pm on the same day 09/25/2013, which were to arrive on 09/27/2013. The next day the one came as supposedly. On 09/27/2013, only one of the two came, as the delivery person said that there was a back order that the computer did not pick up, so it will arrive on 09/28/2013. On 09/28/2013, the mechanic called me to bring the car in because the mounts had arrived. I take car in and wait for a couple hours when the mechanic comes in the lobby saying that all three mounts were the wrong ones. He had worked on the car preparing to install these mounts. He called the local store and supposedly got things right. This is when I am told that the mounts will arrive on 10/01/2013. I sent an email to Autozone regarding this and I was contacted by the regional manager on 10/01/2013, the same day that the mounts arrived, and he instructed me to gather my work order information and leave at a local Autozone store. This information was taken to the Eastern Boulevard store in Fayetteville, NC on 10/01/2013 when the mechanic finished installing two of the three motor mounts as one again was the wrong one. I have not heard from the reional manager since. If nothing was intended to be done, why tell me to do these things and be expecting some assistance?

I have been an employee of Autozone seen January 13, 2013. I enjoy my job very much. I had given birth to my son and tried going back to work two days after; when I was scheduled to work that’s how much I have enjoyed working for Autozone. If you were to ask my customers how my service is, they would give an excellent review for me. But sense I have been there, I have realized that I am one of the few employees at Autozone that enjoy my job. Most of my managers (new store manager included) has not giving an excellent experience for customers at the store. Customers have complained about the attitude, rudeness and much more. I have customers come to me all the time complaining of the customer service there. I’m not sure who to report this to because I feel like nothing will be done. But I wish something would be done because this is making our store lose bussiness. I have customers that will only come to me when they need things. I have told my customers and other customers (who have complained) that they can call the district manager and make their experiences heard. But seem like nothing will be done. So this is why I am writing this to see if anyone will see this and work with the people to make Autozone a better experience for customers.
Thank you for reading this!

I pray that someone will read this and help the situation disappear, because no customer deserve to be treated that way!

To Mr. William C. Rhodes, III, Mr. William T. Giles, and Mr. Harry L. Goldsmith,

I would like to commend Andres Restrepo, Store Manager of Autozone in Chicago (Harlem Avenue location) for the amazing customer service I received in two recent visits to your store. About two weekends ago, I stopped by to purchase windshield wipers for my BMW SUV. Mr. Restrepo took interest in making sure I had the right fitting wipers, removed my old ones and installed the Bosch brand fitting my car’s specs. I was pretty elated since it was raining and these working windshield wipers were very much needed. I also asked if he could replenish some of my fluids in the car which to my amazement Mr. Restrepo was glad to help with that. I left the store driving as a very happy customer, all thanks to professionalism and an outstanding Customer service Mr. Restrepo extended to me.

I made another trip to the valued and trusted source as a week ago, my alternator gave up and it appeared that my battery might have been also needed along with the alternator. I was again, given good advice and choices on my parts for the alternator and the battery. Mr. Andres Restrepo and the other staff were helpful and very knowledgeable about my car needs.

I would like to recognize Mr. Andres Restrepo as a very valuable asset to the Autozone company. It had made a truly positive and very satisfying experience for me as a customer. Great work ethics and a wonderful service! Thank you.

I am a long time customer of AutoZone in the Northport Alabama area. I went in looking for a wonderful young man by the name of Eric. I followed him from your Alberta store due to his excellent customer service. Eric has been a part-time employee with Auto zone for 15 yrs. He has been treated and is being treated unfairly by your store manager Oscar. From harrassement to trying to frame him for things that he has not done. He has complained numerous times at the district level to no avail. Oscar has now cut his hours to 4-10 hours every other week. He’s stated how he dislikes Eric and how he wants him to quit to other employees. This is not management material(Oscar). I understand the economy and cutting hours due to low sales but this is maliciousness and down right lowdown. A long time 15 yr employee thats being treated like dirt. I shutter to think at how a 25 yr employee is treated. I urge you to look into this from the corporate level. This is not the last correspondance from me. The next step is to the CEO.

I work at Auto zone and am a Sixty year old man whom was only hired because I am Bilingual , I speak both English and Spanish . They offered to hire me at $9.00 hr but after hinting to me that I had the job was told I would have to take a pay cut before being hired to which I agreed in order to get the job. On my first day at work I was racially harassed after only working two minutes by a Hispanic employee whom didn’t realize I understood Spanish and whom continued to put me down every time I worked with him until I finally told both of the Parts service managers about it. Before being hired I told both the Store Manager and the District Manager that I had a disability (head injury) which was getting better , I spend $500.00 every month trying to heal this injury which causes me to have a memory problem and I can only remember what I read and then do multiple times.However Auto Zone won’t give you any instructions in writing on how to process returns ,look up warranties or do several other key procedures as they don’t want to pay you for the extra time to study nor do they allow you the means of practicing procedures on a computer .All training is done by word of mouth from whomever your working with that may have worked there longer than you , I am constantly criticized for not knowing how to do something which nobody ever told me how to do in the first place .All my supervisors including my store manager are burned out and don’t want to work there anymore but the economy is too bad to quit without having another job in place.My parts service manager a very smart person has worked there for five years , brings in lots of customers and still gets less than $10.00 an hour.There have been six managers at that store in five years and the rest of the staff has turned over seven different times , both of the gray shirts whom were working there when I first interviewed there two months ago are now gone.The Problem is upper management whom are trying to squeeze extra profits by taking advantage of the employees and won’t even replace faulty equipment so they can do a better job. There are lots of good people working at low paying jobs across America whom are hampered from doing a good job because of bad management , Auto Zone has been corrupted from within by upper management whom have given in to the cry for Diversity which is the biggest destroyer of everything that embraces it.

On 8/28/13 I went to store number 4601 in Chester, PA to buy a Power Steering Pump; they told me it was a special order and it would be in on 8/28/13 after 3 PM. I ordered the part and paid in full $173.83 with the core charge. On 8/28/13 I called to see if my order came in; the phone call was 20 minutes and 21 seconds long. I was on hold for 17 minutes plus. I hung up and called back, when the guy answered the phone and ask can he help me I stated to him i was on hold for 17 + minutes and i wanted to know if my part came in. After being on hold for 2-3 minutes he said it would be in tomorrow (8/30/13). On 8/30/13 i went to the store around noon to find out someone had cancelled my order. i asked another gentleman can he see if another auto zone had the part and before he even checked the computer he said no. I just looked at him like he was crazy, then he decided to checked. Well the store on City line Ave. had the part. The manager sent one of the drivers to get the part and stated to me it would be an hour to an hour in a half. I asked for both of the house for the steering wheel pump, they sold me the rack and pinion ($346.61) they told me it was on the HUB order for 3 PM delivery. I paid and left not checking. Ten minutes later i came back in and told him he sold me the wrong part, he said he didn’t. My father intervene and explained to him what i needed. auto zone did not have the part, it had to be ordered. At that point I called Pep Boys in front of the gentleman and ordered my part from them. While getting my reimbursement, the gentleman was a little upset he had to pay me back, so he was a little hesitance.

i was told they were going to call me as soon as my power steering pump came in (from the other store) which they didn’t. When I arrived at Auto Zone the gentleman that waited on me was coming in from making deliveries. He stated to me before he left the part came in and he was meaning to call me, but he had to make his 5-6 deliveries. I really didn’t care what he had to say because by that time, i had enough. I waited back in line, another worker called me to the front of the line and gave me the part. with a sarcastic voice he said “have a nice day”.
I strongly believe store #4601 in Chester, PA needs serious training! I will never visit that store over again. I will stick to Pep Boys.

On 08/26/2013 I had my wife go to autozone and buy a SET of fan belts for a 1968 chevy camero with a 327 engine. I even gave the part number of the belts I wanted. When she got home I checked them out and noticed that they were from a different manufacture and the ribs were NOT the same. After checking the receipt I also noticed they looked it up under a 1978 chevy nova.Thats NOT what she told them. So I called that store (#2733) and asked to talk to the manager and the guy on the phone said he was the manager (which I doughted) so I told him the problem. I also stated that if they had looked them up for the vehicle they were given that they would have noticed the belts come as a MATCHED SET. A MONKEY could have done a better job. NO MORE Autozone for me!!!!!!!!!!

Recently came home from a short trip to find my battery dead. It was put in in 2011 by by one of your emplyees at a store here in AZ. At that time it was a replacement for a battery that went in in 2009 that had died and was still under warranty. The new battery,a Duralast ,also has a warranty and technically it is still covered because it died before the warranty was up. However,just found out that because it was a free replacement for the previous one,that it does not have the same warranty, so I have to pay a pro-rated amount. Now if I had purchased this battery for full price, it would be covered under a warranty and I could get a replacement.Seriously, why am I being punished because Duralast cannot make a battery for this Arizona heat. It is not my fault that it died before the warranty was up. This is the most unfair policy I have ever heard of and it is discriminating against those of us who had to get a replacement. I expect better from a big company such as this.

I purchased a Duralast Gold Battery on 6/11. It stopped working today, 8/13. My car was left running because AAA had just started it and remained running through this issue.
I was informed that I would have to pay fee because the battery was out of warranty and
would have to be prorated. Second, I was told that I would have to purchase a Terminal Protection Kit($9.99)in order for the new battery to be installed. I contacted an employee at another store and was told that I should not have to pay additional money for the battery or purchase the kit.
My only additional purchases needed were: Terminal Protection Kit for $1.99 and Felt Terminal Protectors for $1.39. I located the name of the regional manager, Mr. Hockaday
and the battery was installed. A charge of $40.41 was made to my Visa card. I received a
refund–part in cash and part to be deducted from my charge card.(#258119). I received a receipt for the credit card deduction after returning to the store but it did not have the card number or the same receipt number.
I want to be contacted so that this resolved to the satisfaction of all parties regarding
the service, the calls to another store to receive my free replacement, length of transaction and credits received. I remain very dissatisfied with service received.
Store: # 0930

please tell us a better story duralast gold 3 year free replacement with additional 2 years prorated warranty if you bought the battery6/11 and on 8/13 of the same year & if you received a credit from a district manager for $40 that would suggest that your battery was in the 4th or 5 th year of warranty NOT 2 months after you purchased the battery
no employee at autozone has any reason not to replace a battery under warranty we are instructed to make sure the customer is satisfied with their experience at autozone
if you only got credit of 40 for a battery after 2 months please respond with the district managers name , as autozone like all major companies monitors feedback these

You where prly one of those people that bought the battery had it warranty replaced once thinking for whatever reason you get a new warranty with your free replacement but the reality is you cannot have your cake and eat it too. When a battery is swapped it continues that warranty from original purchase date. Now you’re in this predicament probably because you only drive the car once a week and destroying the battery because you’re too cheap to buy a battery tender. You go to AZ thinking your free replacement gave you a new warranty not understanding 3 years free replacement mean exactly as it states. So because of your lack of this comprehension you complain and get rewarded for a misunderstanding on your part just to shut you up but now that is not good enough. You continue. People like you make me sick. And this is one reason why batteries cost so much. Get an education and quit acting like an entitled brat.

West Branch, Michigan Store Location. I was capably assisted by your employee Parna Clark on July 22nd with finding the fuse to my Corvette’s windshield wipers that would not turn off. She did an outstanding job in record time and refused all my attempts to reward her monetarily for her efforts. She repeatedly told me, “that’s my job!”

It is a pleasure to encounter such individuals – she represents your organization to the highest standards. Please express my appreciation to her for a job well-done. I will make AutoZone a priority for all my future automotive needs.

to get a Throttle Body Air Intake Coupling.
The manager was very rude. I gave him a letter (printed out from my computer) saying I have difficulty talking. I showed him the part I needed but he wanted to check the codes on my car.
My letter also said that I knew there would be a lot of codes due to this part failure and I was only interested in this part.
After printing out the codes he said you have to take the car to a shop. There are too many things wrong.
He kept repeating that “you have to take this car to a shop”. He continued saying that as I walked to the door and everyone in the store could hear him and they were looking at me.
Why would you have a nut like this guy working for you?

I just wanted to tell you how upset I was over the service I received at your store 219 S JMS CAMPBELL
COLUMBIA TN 38401
(931) 381-1235
I had gone in to have my alternator checked and you would of thought I was asking the man to put the alternator on !!!!!! After asking if they check alternators the man says “Well I guess we do” ???? I know y’all do ….. he proceeds to put on a rubber apron, goggles, and brings the tester .. comes out to the car and after I lifted the hood he says, ” First of all before I even touch your vehicle YOU will have to CLEAN those cables!!!!!!! He should of said, ” I may not get as good a reading with the battery cables like that but will be more then happy to test it if you want” .. Oh no … then tells me I need to BUY cable cleaning brushes and a spray and please use “elbow grease ” while cleaning them … then I will come out and test it when you are finished ..” …….. Long story short , I cleaned cables he tested alternator , it was bad , I did purchase the alternator , tried to return the “spray cleaner” as I DID NOT use it , he says you really need to use that to clean those cables so NO …. after consulting with my son and telling him what happened he decided to take me to Advance Auto and purchase another alternator and I took yours back to the store & explained that the sales guy’s attitude was inappropriate therefore that is why I am returning alternator AND the spray cleaner ( my son sandblasted and cleaned battery cables so they look new now 🙂 ….) …..I just really wanted you to be made aware of this , also even after cleaning the cables when I went back into the store it was like NO ONE , manager included wanted to help , now I don’t know if your policy is that who ever takes care of you when you come in finishes taking care of you but there was 3 guys standing not doing nothing while the one man was waiting on customers???? After returning alternator … a Terry did call very apologetic says the man was quite new etc etc … needless to say HE DID NOT MAKE A VERY GOOD IMPRESSION !!!!!!

I would like to make a complaint against two managers that work in Miami florida. Luis a Cruz works in the Florida city store. I have made many observations with this manager. His attitude was horrible and he was always picking up his cell phone. It also looked as if he was disoriented and looked as if he was on drugs. This is not the first time I have encountered this with this manager.I think drug testing should be done. I refuse to show at this store. So I decided to go to another store in kendal Florida. It was strange that I encountered the same situation with the manager there. Her name was jannette Negron. She also did not acknowledge me and that I needed her help with what I needed,she was busy talking on her cell phone.I waited for 20 minutes before she helped me at this point I was upset and she smelled of liquor and she looked like she was on some type of drug.she was slurring herp
words and she looked high on something.I don’t know what type of business autozone is runninh. If two managers that I’ve encountered are all on drugs. I think an investigation should be done. I will be filing a formal complaint with the BBB.

This is about your Washington CH, Ohio store. This happened Saturday 6-8-13. My brother and I met at my farm which is about 8 miles outside of Washington CH. I live in Columbus and He lives in Lancaster both about 50 away. He was going to replace my brakes on my wife’s 2003 Camry. We got all the parts off and determined what was needed and he drove to the Auto zone in Washington CH. They did not have the routers and called the Auto Zone in Wilmington which is 22 miles away. They had the routers and would have them there by 2:30pm. It was 11:30 at the time. My brother paid for everything including the routers and said he would return at 2:30 to pick up the routers.

We both came into town at 2:30 to pickup the routers, which were not there and did not arrive in the shipment from Wilmington. They called Wilmington. I’m not quite sure of what happened but the routers were not sent. The employee asked me if we wanted to drive the 22 miles (44miles round trip) to pick up the routers. You can imagine what I thought, I told him what would be fair is have the person in Wilmington deliver them to my farm. He said I would have to talk to the manager of the store. He go on the phone with Wilmington and after a discussion said he would meet them halfway and he would deliver them to my farm which he did!

Just want you to know I am and will always do all my business with Auto Zone.

I did not get the Managers name but I an very grateful for the service I received.

Thank you
Dan Albert

I generally have visited the same store not far from where I live in Seat Pleasant, Maryland. My last (and I mean last) visit to the store located on Martin Luther King, Jr. Highway was almost a week ago. The young (very unprofessional) African-American female at one register that I walked up to seemed highly disinterested in doing any work. I said good morning to her, she did not say a word, just looked at me. I then asked her if she could tell me what weight motor oil is required in a 1996 Honda Civic DX Coupe. She quickly looked it up in the system and muttered “5W30”. However, because I did not understand what she said, I said, “Pardon me?” to her. She then raised her voice and said “5W30”. I thanked her (for what, I’m not sure — rudeness?) and proceeded to the section where the motor oil was stocked. When I went to the register to pay for my purchase (a different register), I was waited on by another, almost equally unprofessional African-American female. No niceties/pleasantries, just cold, emotionless facial expression while ringing up my order. Once completed, she placed the two quarts of motor oil that I purchased in a bag and that was it, she just walked away. Will I be patronizing this store again? No. Will I patronize any AutoZone store again? That depends upon corporate’s response to the letter that they’re about to receive and any future (real, meaningful) actions that they may take to either retrain these people and teach them what actual, friendly and efficient customer service is truly about or suggest that they look for another line of work.

Good Morning Im a autozoner gray shirt and i been working for this company for just about 2 years now. im so displeased with the store manager thats in place right now she is telling red shirts who she would like to get rit off.I was told by a red shirt that she would like to get rit off people that smokes we had two young ladys that knows this store functions that both went out on paternity leave and they was trying to get back on the schedule she is avoiding them not placing them on the schedule to work, we had 5 gray shirts quit with in a three mouth period that had more knowledge then the store manger thats in place. she dont no nothing about cars but she speak on others as if they are less than her this is not the way to manage. People come to me with concerns feelng like the district manager is placing all africans as store managers because of his ethic and if you look around it seems to be that way. One of the police officer said to me that she stated to him whats wrong with your people and i said to him what the hell that suppose to mean ypur people. The five gray shirts who quit 4 black americans and one hispanic would tell you more about this manager im reaching out for someone to step in other than our district manager. My store is 1207 H st. N.E washington dc 20002 (202) 388-1203

I called the Visalia ca store on Huston ave. I needed to get price and availability for a fuel pump. I must have called 6 time and they would answer and just hung up. I finally got through and spoke to Noah, told him what I needed and he said can you hold. I waited on hold for 26 minutes . He finally answered and just hung up on me. I’m so upset I probably will never spend any money there. I will also let my family and friends know not to shop for parts there. Very bad customer service

Hello my name is Ben I live in Newberg,Oregon I went to the Newberg store on feb 23,2013 to purchase brakes I received a point for that and used a coupon to get a free point so then I would have the five points and get the twenty dollars on my card. I checked my card a few days later and I had four points so I called to find out when I get my fifth point I was told 4-6 weeks. Well it has been well over a month and I never received the point and on top of it all I now lost the fourth point and am back down to three points. All I would like is my five points I am owed. I am planning a trip with my family and need the points to get a few parts to make sure my car is in good running order.also the customer service at the Newberg store sucks. I have worked in auto parts and was not impressed at all with the service I got. I go there due to having the lowest price. I have two competitor store I can and am willing to go to and pay more just to have better service. I will look for a response. My email is benmichelemurphy@yahoo.com that you for your time.

Autozone is a parts store…not a mechanic’s shop. The employees do not get mechanic’s wages, and they should not be expected to perform mechanical work. Customers should also be alerted to the fact that the employees perform “mechanical, or technical” work related as a courtesy (without pay), so that should be a red flag. You get what you pay for. Autozone is my favorite parts places, and some of the more experienced employees are very knowledgable in cars, but not all. If you know nothing about cars, and expect a free mechanical service, do it at your own risk, don’t blame the poor employees who are usually very young and inexperienced! How much can a 19 year old know about cars??

Wow…I’ve just been online reading all the hugly negative comments about Auto Zone. I’ve been an Auto Zone cutomer for years and had relative good service and just recently began trying to use their online service…..what a joke! I’ve been in contact with several so called customer service reps for the last week and have gotten no where….there really must be a corporate mind set of not providing even an assemblence of customer service. I too will not shop at Auto Zone again.

Mr. William C. Rhodes III
Chief Executive Officer
AutoZone Inc.
123 S. Front St
Memphis, TN 38103

Dear Mr. Rhodes:

This letter is to make you aware about the unsatisfactory customer service I experienced at the AutoZone Store #1750 located in East Cleveland, Ohio and managed by Danielle Dancy. On December 28, 2012, my car (CRV Honda 2002) was in need of a new battery. A Duralast battery was purchased from Store #1750 and installed by one of the employees on site.

Once the new battery was installed, the keys were inserted into the ignition to ensure the battery was functioning properly. Immediately after the engine was on, car fuses were blown, the car engine ran high and evident it was not functioning properly as it should with a new battery. The employee who installed the battery did not know why the car was not operating properly. At this point, all employees, including the store manager at Store #1750, came out to the parking lot to determine what could be the problem. For what should have been a simple task of installing a new battery turned into an unpleasant all day ordeal. Initially, employees assessed the battery was installed backward. However, later discovered the wrong battery was installed for the make/model of the car. To make matters worse, we learned the employee who was assigned to install the battery was a new employee who admitted that he “never installed a car battery before.” This employee was so new that he also did not know how to utilize the cash register for a customer purchase.

As a result of this employee’s ignorance of installing the incorrect battery for my car, he caused a domino effect of damages (known and unknown) to my car. They include (but are not limited to) the following: the check engine light is on continually, the idle control is malfunctioning and the $300 part required to fix it had to be ordered directly from Honda (which has not yet been shipped to install and expected to arrive any day this week), the car safety system is disengaged and the radio no longer works. I have to contact Honda to obtain the security code specific to my car’s VIN number so the auto dealer may fix the radio to be operable. What should have been an easy purchase and less than an hour installation of a new battery at the cost of $132.31, has turned into $490.95 additional expenses (not including labor charges yet incurred to install new idle control) and 7 days, going on ten days without my car operating properly. As a full-time employee, this has affected my ability to travel confidently to and from my appointed destinations.

While I do recognize and appreciate Ms. Dancy’s agreement to reimburse all charges necessary to repair the damage done by this negligent employee, I am outraged that this person did not have enough integrity to ADMIT he didn’t know how to install a car battery. However, since he did not, hours have now turned into days and hundreds of dollars correcting a series of unnecessary mistakes caused by his ignorance and negligence. I have copies of all receipts related to repairing the car and will submit them for reimbursement to Ms. Dancy as suggested.

Please know my dissatisfaction with the service received at AutoZone will result in losing me as a customer in the future. In addition, I will not refer any of my family, friends or colleagues to patron your stores as well. I hope as the CEO of this organization, you will address this issue with all employees of AutoZone, especially employees working at Store #1750.

Best,

Latisha James
Dissatisfied AutoZone Customer
