Manpower restrictions and limitations on hours and wages, tedious business micromanagement, impossible bonus structure, stagnant wages

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remind yourself as to the core values of business. Read and enforce your own policies or change them. Don't chant about business integrity and not abide by it. Promote from within.

    I worked at Advance Auto Parts full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Advance offers good pay, decent benefits, and quality products to sell

    Cons

    tenured associates openly hostile to new hires. Very "clicky". Upper Management unwilling to
    listen to legitimate concerns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    "Servant Leadership" If something you lure in quality people by saying it is a company mantra,
     You should teach ALL UPPER LEVEL Management positions what it actually means,
    and live by it.
