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

Pros

Commercial account focus is nice, with plenty of repeat business. Retail effort is there, but is slow. Minimal advertising means less retail business.

Cons

Company treats employees like numbers instead of people. Way to top heavy, with executives for everything imaginable. No one above the store level has the ability to run a store.

Advice to Management

Rather than spend five or ten minutes in a store, execs should spend a week or two actually trying to do what they expect store personnel to do. They might actually make some intelligent decisions then.

    Start over and do opposite from what you did before
