ConsUpper management becomes disconnected-forgetting what it's like to be down in the store.

Advice to Senior ManagementRemember it's not all about the numbers. These are real people running your stores....

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

O'Reilly Auto Parts, a good place to work.

Regional Field Sales Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at O'Reilly Auto Parts full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI enjoyed the people that I cam into contact each day, in the stores and in the field. The overall outlook for the company is positive from an investment standpoint. The expansion of the company into new states is a huge incentive to work for them.

ConsAs a regional field sales manager there was way more travel than I wanted. Although there is a vehicle allowance, the mileage rate was paid at less than 1/2 of federal mileage rate. Having a cell phone is required, but not enough compensation to pay the bill. Also your annual bonus is paid at 1/3 restricted stock with a 3 year maturity starting one year after it is first given. 2/3 of your annual bonus is cash but if you leave the company, you no longer have the stock available. So really you get scammed out of your earnings.

Advice to Senior ManagementAn RFSM needs to either have a smaller area of coverage, or be given a smaller store count to maximize their effectiveness.
