    I have been working at CARQUEST full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Store level can take charge and provide to the customers with our newfound merger with Advance Auto Parts. WE are a leader now and must go forward with customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    Employees having drama and interrupting daily needs to our customers. We all have particular needs, however some employees do not have a life structure that will allow them to maintain personal needs so they can be 100% at pursuing our goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can go for it if you work here, do not stop our momentum at store level. Training must be ramped up to provide key drivers to move up to the counter and into management.

    I have been working at CARQUEST part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It pays ok. Work 5 days a week. Weekends off. .

    Cons

    New image of Advance/CARQUEST is to be the best. How can that be when management talks out of both sides of their mouths. They talk policy but don't keep policy. Their is no follow up or follow through on anything. We are as only as good as we are trained. No training here. Loss of time doing things more than once, therefore loss of money. Should do it right the first time. So then, how can we be the best?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advance Auto Parts really need to check on the warehouse management personal in Bakersfield CA more closely. Hopefully they would want better people working for them.
