    I worked at CARQUEST full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are other places to work besides Carquest!

    Cons

    Highest prices in town! Poorest service in town due to understaffing! Customers always complaining about things store level can't do anything about. Message to current employes at the store level: There IS life beyond Carquest. Message to employes of stores being purchased by Carquest: They will promise you the world, lie, lie and lie to get you to ramain with the company. Watch out for the "No Compete" they'll try to trick you in to signing! Read everything carefully before signing it. Once you sign that "No Compete" your Horse Power is gone and your transformation from a human to a number is complete It's all down hill from there.

    Advice to Management

    You just need to get real. Listen to what your stores have to say. Relay that informaation to your Management. It's just that simple! If you make it easier at the store level, business will increase. I don't know why you can't see that.

    Start over and do opposite from what you did before
