Inventory Performance Analyst II (Current Employee) – Toronto, ON – 10 January 2017
Very archaic work environment. Little excitement or challenges. Very little structure in the office, rules are set in stone, no flexibility or work-life balance or support for self-development opportunities or educational pursuits.
stable work, not much to do
no movement, long hours without the workload, inflexible management

Fun work place with supportive management. General manager is very supportive of employee growth, and creates a stress-free environment to learn within the job. Co-workers are very willing to help whenever there is a problem.

I had a store manager that was under sold the product from our store and each store have it's own GP for profit sharing but to find out that our store was -30% , I was mad at my manager and the company that hired an oversee person and that's what you get for hiring Pakistan person for management position to run the store. After I went on to another job and the store closed down , which I knew that's was going to happen.
always asked to stay after hours to do last min deliveries.

CARQUEST, I liked the people I worked with and our customers were wonderful. I loved to bring our products to our customers, great friendships. The shipping receiving part I liked to organize, and clean up stock.
Pay is good, pressure to maintain standards is too much
Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Etobicoke, ON – 23 April 2015
start time is a little too early if you're stocking and you live far from the location you're working at. co-workers constantly complain. not convinced workers are happy working there because of the pressure to maintain standard. enjoyable part of the job is the pay. management is decent because of two supervisors.
Maintain Standard, Unhappy workers, Higher ups dont care
Delivery driver (Former Employee) – Picton – 14 January 2015
Overall my experience with Carquest was fine. I was treated very well and fairly, however poor wages and no benefits. On a day to day basis, the job went pretty well. It was a fun place to work, all employees got along very well and good team work in place.
Shipper/Receiver/Dispatcher/Driver (Former Employee) – Sussex, NB – 28 January 2014
This business is fast paced, as you deal with many different types of customers. ex: Garages
You have to be focused, and you have many tasks on the go at the same time. You could be picking orders to be delivered to a garage, getting an order ready to be picked up by a courier, or making a delivery if all other drivers were on the road.
The entire management team is "Hands On", and is involved with the day to day operation of this business.
The hardest part of the job was keeping track of where all of the delivery drivers were at any given time, being able to answer questions from management. If you didn't have an answer, you tried to find one.
The most enjoyable part of the job... Meeting the customers, dealing with them on a day to day basis. Knowing that you've been able to do something for them to help their day go a bit better.
Sales Representative (Current Employee) – London, ON – 15 October 2013
A typical day at work involved driving to various customers to ensure they were satisfied with the products as well as customer service and proceeded to deliver orders to them if necessary to guarantee complete satisfaction with the company. Hardest part of the job was leaving at the end of the day, the most enjoyable part was making sure our customers had a smile on their face.
As a corporate store, there were guidelines in place to ensure continuity, however, they did not leave room for the except when factor that we all experience. The pay was par for the industry, but the hours were longer than most.
