You want to get ahead and not be treated like an idiot, learn the lingo of the product you are selling and stop relying on the fucking computer. That's my get ahead advice for the day.

That's funny... I’ve been in the same store Jim… I hate going into those cookie cutter corporate stores just for this reason... If they lose their computer they can’t look up a part to save their life… Lucky for me I have an old-school parts store by me. It doesn't seem to matter what I'm looking for they can find it for me. If I walk in and ask for a 1310 they hand me one… It’s nice…

You want to get ahead and not be treated like an idiot, learn the lingo of the product you are selling and stop relying on the fucking computer. That's my get ahead advice for the day.
The problem with that scenario is, I have to ask a lot of questions to the customer whether or not I want to, because it is protocol. The system I work with sucks, it wants to know every little detail for the car you have.
Normally though if you walked into my store and asked for a 1310 u-joint, I would interchange the number if I had to, which would bring up a list of parts my store has that match that 1310, or otherwise I'd walk to the back and just grab that part.
Perfect scenario for that: two days ago a customer walks in with a broken belt. It's a Napa belt, and I interchanged the numbers and came up with nothing. I asked him if there was a specific vehicle this went on, he said no. So we walked to where the belts were, I picked him out a belt based on eyeballing the size. We walked up to the front, I rang it up, and he said that belt was too expensive and see if I had any other cheaper belts. I interchanged the numbers, found him a belt we had that was 1/4th the price and sent him on his way.
Turns out this belt he needed for his bike, he put a weedwacker engine on his bike and snapped the belt.

Kinda like the difference between the auotzone and advance here. plus the napa, carquest, and the "other"one (idk wtf it is). even the cookie cutter advance people know their stuff. the autozone is a very last resort as far as im concerned.
