CAREERS SPOTLIGHT

In 2012 Jeanette—a native Californian—moved to Virginia and took a job in a chain video store. After the chain went bankrupt, she joined a competitive auto parts store. But an Advance manager soon recruited her as a salesperson at Advance’s local super hub. However, like all rising stars, Jeanette didn’t stop there. Within three years, she became a part-time key holder, a retail parts manager, and then a general manager at her first location in Fredericksburg, Virginia. Today, Jeanette’s store is #2 in the district, second only to their super hub. Meanwhile, her talent flourished as a trainer/troubleshooter at a store in Stafford. The store had gone through five managers until she arrived, but she and her team quickly turned it into a thriving location. The experience elevated her to the status of a go-to General Manager when fellow GMs need assistance. In late 2021, Advance sent Jeanette to California to train team members at the new Advance locations, the former Pep Boy’s stores with locations across the state. As she breaks new ground out West, she continues to exercise her core skills for Advance. “It feels great,” she said, “to bring people up to the point when I can tell them they’re ready to go to the next level.” It will be fun to see what she does in the next nine years.
