    The pay checks didn't bounce. Decent benefits. Little chance of advancement.

    You are a number....at retirement I got nothing, not a card, nothing.... but the worst was when I lost my son and when I returned to work and realized no one had been told.

    I have been working at CARQUEST part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People there are generally easy to get along with, like everywhere there is drama.
    But the work day is usually enjoyable.

    Cons

    Was recently bought out by Advanced Auto Parts, out discounts and benefits changed for the worst. Most of the employees are not happy with the turn of events. The company is about profit and making money, the turnover rate is some what high but then we sell cars parts and if you can read you can sell car parts.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your workers concerns and address them to the higher ups.
    Do not try to mask the store issues when the higher supervisors and VIPs visit.
