Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Eugene, ORNovember 25, 2017
clock in, find out which deliveries need to go out next write them down in the order you deliver them and deliver the parts, If its a cash invoice collect money while you drop off the parts. come back and start over.
the Eugene and Springfield and outer areas, Inventory location of the parts in the store, cash handling, making deliveries coming back to the store and starting over.
Manager was nice over all but sometimes looked over some thing that should not have been.
Nice people to work with kind of a negative attitude at times.
Some times the people were the hardest to work with but for the most part it was the traffic.
Going to different shops the meeting new people.
Pros
the discounts
Cons
the coworker and traffic

Very Horrible company to work for
Bilingual French Collections (Former Employee) –  Raleigh, NCNovember 7, 2017
Carquest Auto Parts also Known as Advance Auto Parts has changed since Advance Auto Parts purchased Carquest. It's very stressful to work there, people do not last there, you can see about 10 people leaving the same week or month because they are not happy. Managers don't know what they are doing. They treat employees like trash. In short, it's a horrible company to work for

Before merging with Advance Auto Parts, CarQuest was a great brand to work with. A lot of customers relied on us for their Auto Parts needs. The manager was great. The DM micro managed a lot of our day to day activities. Pay wasn't great

Very enjoyable place to work
GENERAL MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Jamestown, NDOctober 30, 2017
The work environment was ideal. The most difficult part of the job was employee retention, due to the oil boom in the western part of the state.

I enjoyed the people I worked with. We were able to build strong relationships with our customers, both walk-ins and Commercial.
