Started as a driver but did MUCH more. Made some really good sales which I had to "give away" because I'm not a CPP. This company doesn't compensate their people very well. Over the last 11 yrs my wage has only increased by $2.11 per hr.

Yes they do depending the severity of the crime, and the year of conviction. If your crime was over a year ago... based on job experience and charictor, they will consider you for employment.

Horrible vacation pay, its accrued but they dont tell you that. So if you have 40 hours due after a year, you will ot get to use them fully until end of year. Then if not used you will lose them. They avoid posting correct vacation or sick hours on pay check stubs to hide your hours. Recommend not working for this company !

Increase revenues by offering a pay level that attracts qualified people to work the parts counter. The money lost from returns or bad sales practices due to lack of knowledge by associates is staggering. Choose a store and pay everyone $12+ an hour based on qualifications and see how impactful it is to a solid bottom line. I worked at store #6010 and my customer average was $150+ per hour due to my knowledge. This was 7 years ago and i only did this part time but i am confident in this strategy. Parts stores are nightmares due to the lack of training and professional development with their associates.
