    I have been working at Copart full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Copart offers its employees great benefits. The knowledge that you gain from each individual employee throughout the company is also exceptional. The growth potential of the employees is a cut above the rest! The ability to travel to other yards throughout the US and other countries is also amazing. The company offers different employee rewards for their hard work and dedication. The team work throughout the day makes for a fun and enjoyable work day. Of coarse there are some days that are more difficult then others, but each day is how you make it. The staff that I have the privilege of working with is one of the best. Weekends and most holidays off is also an added bonus to this great organization.

    Cons

    In my opinion there are no downsides of working for Copart. As with any type of job, it is what you make it. I love the people I work with and enjoy learning new things every day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! Motivation and positivity is key to a great organization and Copart is a great organizations. Nurturing employee potential can go along way for the company as well as the individual. I know the management team is fantastic and letting their employees know that they are each fantastic goes a long way!

    Pros

    it is a good place to work if you don't mind being outside and enjoy cars. its good steady work for a good company that treats its employees good. good benefits

    its a tough job when the weather is bad. the managers could treats the employees better, they don't treat them bad though.

    Advice to Management

    pay attention to the good job that the employees are doing. lets us know were doing a good job, when we are. don't just focus on the few bad things

    The company is continuing their international expansion which is very exciting to be a part of! There is a lot of opportunity! If you are dedicated and work hard, you will be recognized. They have good benefits for the employees including the employee stock purchase plan which is great.

    Cons

    There can be a lot of office politics but you will find this at most any company.

    Advice to Management

    Great people will bring great success. Recognize and reward these people and don't be afraid to deal with those that are holding us back.

    Pros

    Solid Fortune 500 company, good reputation, friendly staff. Management seems to be flexible with needed days off and laid back work environment.

    Cons

    Pay is not equivalent to the work you put in. Lower than other competitor auctions. Right when you start making good money they changed the pay structure barely being able to afford to live and pay bills.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing shows how much you value your employees like compensating according to job performance. Throw out some positive feedback every now and then.
