I worked at CARQUEST full-time (More than 3 years)
The Director of Accounting (Cindy) was amazing. She was always there when questions needed answered and she always had a smile on her face. The teams and other employees I worked with directly were friendly and very knowledgeable. Everyone got along in our building. The work I did was challenging and I was never bored.
The merger with Advanced caused most of us to get laid off. The pay could have been better for the amount of hours worked. Typical work week was 40 hours, but during period-end close the hours were greater, sometimes staying until 8pm or later. This type of schedule is usual for accountants, but the pay didn't match the extra hours and deadlines.
Advice to Management
To Advanced: Treat your employees better. They may just be a number to you, but loyalty can go a long way and can save you money in the long run in training costs alone.

I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at CARQUEST (Raleigh, NC) in May 2011.
No interview as I got in through recommendation from someone else.
They took me to a room in the back and showed me some videos and gave me papers to fill out. It was a very easy experience.
