    Pros

    Good place to go and work if you don't have anything else to do.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible. I ended up doing manager / assistant manager duties while still being payed the counter sales wages. I was opening/closing the shop and doing manager duties in the morning. A lot of the employees had no knowledge on vehicles or parts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people that know something and don't treat your employees like garbage with such horrible pay.

    Pros

    love the environment, love helping customers, the company's core culture is right in line with my personal desires, great employee discount even though it has changed

    Cons

    too much rope for less then desirable employees/managers to over stay their welcome, less then acceptable respect for hourly staff in this area, motivated employees routinely expected to carry the workload for management, this area routinely advancing untrained/unmotivated employees into positions they should not be in for the sake of keeping the payroll as low as possible, local company values not in line with corporate values

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    local area up to the regional level needs to be flushed and replaced, pay performing employees a respectable wage, local competition is 3-4 dollars an hour more on average, a decent employee discount doesn't pay the bills......
    force managers to give reviews on time and give reasonable pay increases when due

    I worked at O'Reilly Auto Parts

    Pros

    Discount on parts for my Vehicles

    Cons

    They would rather hire someone with no idea about automotive parts and repair pay them nothing and feed them a line of the more you sell the more commission you make but you have to make a minimum of 8,000.00 to earn an EXTRA 1/4 OF A PERCENT that's approx. and extra $8 in your check a week They claim to believe in family values and flexible hours but HR had said several times we don't care about your personal life you work when we tell you to work..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To Greg Henslee come to Chicago land and talk to your little people infact undercover Boss!!! Look what management does to your working people.. You either know about the cover ups and don't care or you will be amazed when you see what goes on... as a retirey in the automotive field and belonging to several associations I'm ashamed to say that I worked for you how you treated employees that know the business and worshiped the employees that had no clue. Would highly recommend you do drug testing on your management that you refuse to do you wont be happy with your results

    I worked at O'Reilly Auto Parts full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Well, I always got paid on time. My supervisor was a considerate and understanding guy, as I truly think most of the people at O'Reilly corporate are. Promoting from within is an honest policy that they actively engage.

    Cons

    Pay is pathetic. The environment is honestly like Office Space, and the building almost looks like a replica of Initech. The organization is filled with countless people who are content with staying in the same role for 10-15 years; no goals, and no drive. The organization thrives on mediocrity. Mediocre people working with mediocre (at best) technology for mediocre pay and benefits.

    I started at the organization immediately after I graduated with a business degree from a Springfield, MO university. I started my degree following four years of active-duty military intelligence experience. There is nothing to feel challenged by, and I started in a pretty good position on the ladder. I was fortunate enough to be able to leave after three months under circumstances that won't affect me long term, and I'm glad I did.

    I truly could not recommend this company to anyone that isn't desperate for employment. If you have options, this is absolutely NOT the place for talented and motivated individuals. I was lucky enough to work with a team of nice and helpful guys, but overall, the place just, well....sucks. If you are forced into Springfield and need a job you aren't going to be concerned about going away, or you're okay working for crappy pay, go for it..I guess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management doesn't need my advice. They have a very profitable model that has led to a successful company and increased value for shareholders. However, this obviously comes at the expense of increased turnover and an organization that no one is excited to be a part of it.
