Well... You'd have to deal with little old ladies who have no idea what parts they want... And employees who have no idea what parts are which... And people who come in and lay out an order so quick you have to have them repeat it twenty times... And people who are sure something will work on their car when you tell them it won't, and then want a refund... Then there'* people working on stuff in the parking lot... and Trucks coming in and orders and keeping the store orderly...

But on the good hand you get to learn all kinds of crazy things, and probably make some good money.

Dude, you're young. This is still a starter job. If the money is right (considering commute and all) take it. Looks good on the resume (imagine the funky little thing on the e)
