Setup Team

Setup Team Lead (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

ProsTruly seem to care about their employees
Very flexible and work with you in case of family events, and schedule
Get to see the country
Good pay and benefits

ConsEvery job has its little complaints but Carquest is a corporation that has a small business feel. Sure there are some self centered people but even most of the high ups will spend time talking to you when they are around. I would say the only con was communication in our department. Could go weeks sitting around the house but not able to do anything you need because you could get a call to pack up and leave for a job the next day.

Advice to Senior ManagementJust communicate with your employees more. I dont know if that means planning things further in advance or just telling them as soon as you know but thats it. Other than that keep up the good work and sell some parts.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    SINKING FASTER THAN THE TITANIC!

    IT Slave (Former Employee) Raleigh, NC

    I worked at CARQUEST full-time for more than 5 years


    Pros: Competitive pay... Good people to work with in certain… Cons: As I said in my title the headquarters is sinking faster than the titanic! Management has too many meetings and not much ever… Advice to Senior Management: Get your head out of your a$$ and quit making decisions on the fly. Put some intelligence behind your decision. Listen to… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
