skip baxter wants to burn down the hillsboro warehouse he hates it. he ordered a gdi rad for a customer we had 7 on hand and it didnt show at store #1 until 37 hours later he was pissed. last time i was in store#1 they said they lost 70k in sales in one month at that store alone. the reason you havent seen your hella from hillsboro is no one can read the hella part numbers there. to many numbers on the package for them to figure out.

lol yah i wouldnt wanna make skip mad. any baxter for that matter, anyone in the "higher up's" in baxter i dont wanna make mad. lol i like my job

i got the hella conversion eventually but first they sent the wrong ones and then i ordered the euro spec ones and but em on that day so its all good. the warehouse is just in shambles, there are soo many things to fix. not just in the warehouse but in all the stores, i think since the warehouse move all the stores inventories are off or maybe ours is but now were switching brands on certain parts n everyone puts em in the wrong spot!!! arg!

the inventory was a joke all they had me do was put an x there if it was on the shelf no counting or anything. and when i asked how that was going to help the problem they went off about shut up and do what im told. when i told dave from the tigard store he was like f this warehouse. most of the employees hoped it would burn to the ground

"GET ME MY DAMN PARTS!!!" gesh i fricken could throttle some of those ppl

the problem starts with the managers robert and keith both need to go. they are the reason they have so many lame employees. and the w/c desk needs people that arent so overstressed to work it they talk that way to clients and wc customers alike. they have lost many good employees because of the management alone for being so rude to them about making the rest of the "team" look bad by getting to much done.

Hi folks... I am not driving an FC right now, but I was driving a patchy white S5 NA in Newberg, Sherwood, Hillsboro and the areas between. My car will be finished soon... Start looking for a shiny black S5 NA. See sig link "My Car" for more info on the car... currently painting it in my booth.

I NEVER see 7's.... there is a nice black FD here in Newberg though on my way home from work (hwy 219).

Wow I can't wait to see your car. From the pics it looks hella sick already. The interior is already batter than the entire condition of my car. I wish I could do the same for mine, but unfortunately my 7 is my daily driver. I'd love to slap on a new paint job but no time and resources.

I am in gresham, I work at Autozone on division. I tried to get on at Baxters but they didnt want to hire me, maybe that is a good thing, not that I get paid very well at Autozone but I am working on being moved up to PSM. I kind of like working there, I hated doing my other job installing windows in homes but I sure am good at doing that. Oh hey Scott, its good to see you have joined the forum, sorry I havent called in awhile been busy with stuff.
