Should I worry?

We just lost two managers - one quit and the other changed location. I'm wondering if this means that my store might be in danger (which, in all honesty, wouldn't surprise me one bit.) Has anybody had similar experiences? Is this an indication that... read more

The wrong formulas

Advance upper management is to blame for being greedy. This company has no direction, and continues to apply the wrong formulas to instill loyalty in customers and employees. Parts availability is poor at best, pricing is typically higher then the... read more

GMs now being blamed for the weather

Sales are down and the temp outside is hovering around 28 degrees but the regional office says the GM and their teams are to blame not the weather. Sounds like ## to me.

The worst company to work for. Hands down

Advance Artificial Intelligence Team

Bahaha! People buy batteries when it's cold outside? Better yet, they buy wipers when it's pouring the rain? The public can't handle these radically new concepts.

Almost time

The clock is ticking until we all become Walmart greeters. No one is telling us about what is going to happen. Today we had some Advance people and some suit wearing guys come to our store and look around. Nobody said who they were,they just kinda... read more
