Days often start hectic and end at a snails pace, the ability to leave your station to use the washroom or get a drink if necessary is a huge plus to working here. You can develop a closer relationship with staff and management than you may think you would be able to when working at an operation of this size.
Ice machine, friendly coworkers
Good place to work...in my case I worked there for 13 years until company closed the store permanently...(corporate decision )but until Last day it was a very good job.
Store building was too old .
I have been a GM for 5 months now and really enjoy it. I learn something new every day and have the freedom to build my team to see my vision through. My DM fully supports the store and is understanding of the current events in our country that are making times difficult. We work as a team to try to improve and grow the business.
freedom to run the store my way.
was hired with bonuses promised. These are very difficult to earn during covid.

I have 4 years in at Carquest. Every time they called me because someone didn't show up for work, I was there! No appreciation for the above and beyond work I've done. Low pay rate for they expect out of their employees. Plus tons of rules and cameras in the vehicles.
Could be a great job.
Poor management and pay scale
For the amount of work they make me do I feel as I don’t get payed enough. I feel as they treat me as the best their and take advantage of me for my hardworking at times. They make me get them food when it is less busy and often fill time with tedious tasks. Overall would be a better company if payed fairly.
Little pay, more work then it seems
I like working in autoparts the customers respected me as a woman, the bosses in corporate office are rude but that’s just what we had to work with, I moved up fast in company cause they offered classes for me to learn more
Hours and people
Pay and corporate bosses are rude
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Carquest Auto Parts?
On a typical day at work I usually start my work at 9:00am, collaboratively plan my day, and make sure that the most urgent work gets done first. I learned and gain a lot of work experience. Management is great. The workplace is a clean, comfortable and a productive environment to work in. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning and gaining new work experience, training others, getting the job done and working as team player.
Hours and benifts
Your easly can be replaced, and they definitely let you know that there.(Oxnard Ca) They disregard your personal life you have to work your appointment around the scheduling. They definitely favor seniority so your chances of moving up are slim-to-none, the pay is minimum if your in a bind they hire anyone!. No good!!
The managers would pool together and have one supervisor (usually the same one) do most of the work which was a bit off putting. The people that work there usually don't like change if it doesn't go to their favor even if it's efficient. There are a few bad apples in there but overall, everyone there do their job and go home at the end of the day.
Part time workers are treated like lower class citizens. Holiday pay is only 4 hours no matter how many hours you work in a day. Vacation time is only 20 hours per year no matter how many hours a week you work. After 5 years my vacation pay hours were never increased. Pay raises were no more than $0.25/hour per year. No health insurance offered to part timers. These things might be different now as I stopped working there in 2010. But I doubt it. Fellow employees are helpful and friendly. Everyone seemed to get along with each other. Overall a pleasant place to work.
