Parts Advisor (Current Employee) – Edmonton, AB – 8 October 2014
Typical day can have its ups and downs just like anywhere else. I do enjoy my job, I've always had a love and passion for the automotive world. We have had our change in management, the service managers have changed a few times in the last few years. Our parts manager has stayed the same in the last 4-5 years. My co-workers are great some I have had troubles with along with the rest of the employees, which are mainly the techs. They come into the service area and voice their opinions and have no filters which we are in the process of fixing. The hardest part of the job is making sure that our parts are where there supposed to be at all times. With 2 people working on a stock order is fine, especially if the parts are being checked off but our manager steps in to help out which is not a problem until we find parts left here and there because he got pulled away to do something else. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing customers leave happy because of my service to them, and also seeing the new vehicles come in and see the new changes. But most of all is learning new things!!
