Parts Driver (Former Employee), Chesapeake, VAOctober 8, 2013
Pros: discounts
Cons: working nights
The day would start out with a bang fast paced. I am not going to say we didn't have some drama there but in all we all got along. The only reason I am not their any more is due to the fact I had surgery in December and I resigned so they could fill my spot I was unsure when I would be able to return to full duty.

Productive Workplace
Production Worker (Current Employee), Albuquerque, NMOctober 7, 2013
Pros: productivity makes time fly by fast, friendly co-workers.
Cons: pay needs to be more, management needs to improve.
Work with scanners to pull, stock, ship, inventory or replenish different auto parts. Management can improve a little here and there. Co-workers are friendly and enjoy what they do. The pay can be increased a little bit too.

Parts runner (Current Employee), Manteca, CAOctober 6, 2013
Very friendly environment to come into every morning. Easy to talk to management to find out goals for the day/week/month.
Friendly customers, sometimes a challenge to work with but with help from co-workers eventually figure out solution.

One of the best places I have ever worked
Customer Service & Sales (Former Employee), Brookings, SDSeptember 21, 2013
Pros: flexible hours and a positive work environment
Cons: when you cant find exactly what the customer needs
One of my favorite jobs was working at Carquest in Brookings, SD. I needed a part time job to work while I was finishing school and I am glad I was hired. I learned everything from driving and delivering parts to stocking the shelves and working the counter. Above all I enjoyed making deliveries and helping customers locate hard to find parts. The Carquest – more... of Brookings is locally owned; my manager always went above and beyond to help our customers. My co-workers upheld these standards, it was great being a member of the team. I hope to work at a place like this in the future. – less

Good place to work, but not for a career
Customer Delivery Teammate (Former Employee), Davenport, IAAugust 16, 2013
Pros: pleasant work atmosphere, good people, discount on auto parts
Cons: low pay, erratic hours and schedules
A typical day at work was steady with usually no stress. My manager and coworkers were great people to work with. It was a fairly easy job, you were out and about, driving their vehicles. You developed a repore with the local mechanics because you were the first and pretty much only person they saw from Carquest. I received six safe driving awards as – more... well. – less
