When you work on the front lines for a company that has been turning itself around from poor management decisions for the past

two years, you tend to keep up with the corporate reporting to see

how your employer is doing financially. AAP just reported the 4th quarter 2018 and full year results, and did well enough to pay the share holders a dividend. Considering the Trump economy and the

number of companies that last year passed on significant raises to

there employees, it is really quite a kick in the teeth when you get your yearly review and they tell you for the second year in a row that there is no money budgeted for raises, but the share holders get a dividend! When the folks on the counters are no longer motivated to sell more because it does not change there paychecks

then before long the balloon loses its ability to levitate, and the profits will dry up and spiral downward. Wake up and take a look

at what the competition is paying before its too late!

Harrisburg, as in Harrisburg Pa?? Heck I worked at the west shore store, used to be a good place till Little Jimmy became the DM for the region so I went to Federated and now getting one third higher pay and better hours and an intelligent boss versus a ex ice cream salesman who now runs your area as DM.

Advance Auto parts is not a fault here. It is the managers and how they operate under their DM.

The raises are very low, and rare. The promotions, are most of the time, not within the store, they higher from outside which is an insult to the existing workforce. The training is very inadequate, as well as slow paced. The DM is at fault along with his local cronies.

It is what the managers decide to do with what they are given that causes this problem or solution and they are brow beaten if they don't follow their DM. They do no promote a positive work environment.

Yep same here in Harrisburg Pa, no raise for years but the DM goes to Florida, Aspen and Bahamas for vacation every year. They tell you that you are at top of the payscale but will not show you the scale which obviously is slinding scale in their favor.

They expect you to bust your butt but don't even dangle a carrot in front of your nose to do well, all they do is threaten to fire you.

Yet they wonder why they can not get any new highers to take their low pay when pizza shops and Mcdonalds pay more. They might as well employ transients since the turnover is so great amongst the highly skilled motivated people that they attempt to higher with their skimpy wages, they only last a week after the fake smile and handshake that the DM gives them.
