We provide competitive Benefits to meet the needs of our AutoZoners


AutoZone values its employees. In addition to our customer-focused culture and team-oriented environment, we are proud to offer a competitive benefits package. This page will provide a general overview of the health, life, disability, retirement and work/life benefits as well as a few extras available to eligible AutoZoners nationwide.

We urge you to become familiar with our benefit offerings. Once you do, we are confident you'll understand why
"It's great to be an AutoZoner!"

Important! For most benefit plans, AutoZone's eligibility periods are based on whether the AutoZoner is full time salaried or full time hourly.

The eligibility period is the time an AutoZoner must be employed before he or she is eligible to participate in the benefit plan.

AutoZone reserves the right to change, amend or terminate benefit programs at any time. Nothing in this web page should be construed as an employment contract or guarantee of benefits. If any discrepancy arises between the information found here and the official plan documents, the official plan documents will govern.


There are three Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans. We also offer a Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) plan to our AutoZoners in California. All of the plans provide coverage for preventive care at low or no cost to you. Prescriptions, doctor visits, hospitalization, surgery, and mental health care are all covered. Coverage amounts vary based on which plan you choose and whether you choose to use an in- or out-of-network provider.

We also offer a limited medical health plan for AutoZoners during their eligibility period that provides for accident, sickness and/or supplemental in-hospital coverage.


At AutoZone, we offer a number of programs that support our culture of wellness. Listed below are some of the programs we offer:

  • Reimbursement for completing a Weight Watchers program
  • Reimbursement for completing a smoking cessation program
  • Free online Health Risk Assessment for AutoZoners enrolled in our Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois plans
  • Wellness Reward Dollars
  • Free Annual Physicals

Note - The availability of some programs is based on your location and/or medical coverage.
