    I worked at Valvoline full-time

    Pros

    1. Gain experience working on cars
    2. Fun
    3. Team Work

    Cons

    1. Lack of caring and bonus...I didn't see more dimes even after I was chosen as the year highest dollar over posted in the nation.
    2. I got a call to come in to work even though I was sick with doctor's notice
    3. 60-80hr/week

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Go back to business school, relearn everything again on how to run a successful business. I ran above 80% of employees retention when I was running two stores. Happy employees means: better morale, less training expenses, and at the end: profit....NOT the other way around.
    2. Show the example of work smarter than work harder! The team I constructed and managed went over 178% OVER THE YEAR of the corporate goal for the store.
    3. Have a better compensation structure. I set up and led sales training small seminars for other stores and the outcome: ~25% increase sales per month after the seminar. I didn't see any more dimes in my bank account.
    4. How long and what does it take for changing the whole mind set of cutting throats and negativity for profit? Again, go back to business school!
