Sales Representative (Current Employee), London, ONOctober 15, 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 – more... had a smile on their face. – less

Pros: payed training
Cons: long hours, no summer vacation
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.

won distribution center of the year award
Distribution Center Manager / Warehouse Manager (Former Employee), Saint John, NBAugust 1, 2012
Pros: great job with great pay
Cons: it required me to move my family to toronto - family did not like toronto
In my role at the Saint John Distribution Centre we made solid improvements on proper student/part-time hiring that eliminated almost all over-time. We rapidly cross-trained to eliminate any areas that did not have enough people trained; thus eliminating bottle-necks in production, and also creating a more efficient Distribution Centre. We also were – more... able to work with purchasing to create a much “smarter” Inventory, thus creating faster turn in inventory for our customers. We did all this and also focused on safety – noting that we worked over a year without a lost time accident. All of the above resulted in us winning the top Distribution Centre award in 2007.

That award gave me my promotion to the Toronto CarQuest Distribution Centre; we made the same vast improvements at the Toronto Distribution Centre. In a short time we made improvements in product picking efficiency by re-working lines and thru positive motivation, and coaching. We also rapidly dropped picking errors. We also improved on lost time accidents. Through cross-training and motivation we eliminated most bottle-necks in productivity and in doing so eliminated most over-time. During my time at the Toronto Distribution Centre I was awarded with a warehouse manager of the year award. I was also chosen to be a mentor due to my ability to manage change, and present it in a positive manner to other managers, and supervisors in the company striving to get to the next level. – less

productive and good working atmosphere.
Auto Parts Handler (Former Employee), Rexdale, ONMay 15, 2012
Pros: bbq luncheons.
Cons: meeting the standards.
The typical day at work is basicly going to team mates morning meetings daily and the supervisor will assign you your work and do the work in that day. I have learned more about the Rf scanner and the princpals of the job. The Management is ok they should be better communication between the team mates and the rest of the management. My co-workers was – more... great to work with with some typical conflicts that were resolved. The hardest part of the job is meeting their picking standards every month they move it up and have to reach at least 100% production level with picking with totes. The most enjoyable part of the job for me is moving from stocking to picking and picking to stocking. – less

Associate Store Manager (Current Employee), Carrboro, NCAugust 21, 2014
Decent company to work for. The company is more concerned with gross profit over sales so you can rest assured they have the funds to pay their bills at the end of the day. As with any automotive retail company their pay scale is below par. Management treats its employees well.

Great Place to work untill the knew store management took over,
Counter Pro/ Delivery Driver (Former Employee), Vancouver WAAugust 5, 2014
It was the best place to work that I ever had, great pay, great hours, you name it. But when the current store manger stepped down they hired a guy that was fired from a competing company the first thing he does is cut hours, made demotions, & brought in his own friends that were also fired from O'Reilly Auto Parts & pushed almost everyone to quit. – more... Then their sales went down & customers walked. – less

Carparts Delivery Driver (Former Employee), Spokane, WAJuly 24, 2014
Pros: pay check, driving around
Cons: managment.
A day at CARQUEST was ok. It is a good job for college students. the management was not very good. It made a day at work not very enjoyable. My co workers were all nice and fun to be around. The hardest part of the job was trying to follow the rules even though management was trying to break them. The best part of the job was being able to drive around – more... all day. I learned several things about car parts, and the computer systems that go along with car parts. – less

Counter/Driver (Former Employee), Merrill, WIJuly 10, 2014
Pros: i have none
Cons: everything
I loved working in the automotive industry and had the training to do so, but I was treated as if I did not know anything and was belittled in front of customers and coworkers. I was miserable, but tried to stick it out to show that I was valuable.

Great work enviroment, lacking advancement and support.
Customer service rep (Current Employee), Kenosha, WIJuly 3, 2014
Pros: secure employment
Cons: poor compensation, lacking management, poor benefits
A typical work day starts at 5pm and it begins by me helping our customers acquire their needs aka auto parts to move production, and also doing inventory throughout our store making sure we have the necessary parts upon request. I am basically my own boss I do have my set schedule to abide by but I am in the store alone all night with keys to the building – more... and our lock codes at the ready. My day ends at 4am and it ends with me securing each exit and making sure everything is off and locked down before I head home for the night. I am a people person and love my co-workers have a great relationship with all of them. My management her at Carquest on paper is OK and friendly but when it comes to advancement and support it is lacking. – less
