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

Short stay under the worst manager i have ever experienced
third keyholder: realy assistant manger (Former Employee), Helotes txSeptember 8, 2014
Pros: was a small company with pretty good communication
Cons: little advancement, no support, lots of things were obsolete.
It was a time of change the company had just been sold after years of trying. I thought this would be a good thing didn't get the chance to find out. The owners had deliberately no invested in the company instead buiding a large cash resreve as a candy to make it more attractive.

Great place to work
Shelf Stoker, Cashier (Current Employee), Jena, LASeptember 3, 2014
Pros: can leave throughout the day for personal reasons if needed
Cons: no lunch break, minimum wage
When I get to work I spend 2 to 3 hours putting up parts that have came in earlier that morning, when I am done with that I come to my computer and wait for customers that need help or need to check out. Throughout the day I also answer the phone, restock and face shelves, and make deliveried if needed.

Face paced but low compensation
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

Parts Delivery Driver (Former Employee), Fayetteville, NCJuly 15, 2014
Low pay, and not much stability in the job. You can get laid off with no notice and they let you get to work to lay you off.
