    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

    Cons

    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

    Pros

    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.

    Pros

    I have been working for Copart for a little over 11 months now. I have learned a lot of the business and I have been able to really appreciate what this company has to offer to an employee. Copart does not only push you to be a better employee, they push you to be a better person in life. Copart's new mission, vision, and values prove that Copart not only care about your career in Copart but they care about your growth as an individual. What I love most about this company is that we are not co-workers we are a family.

    Cons

    -Honestly I appreciate everything this company has done for me and have absolutely no bad things to say about this company.

    Advice to Management

    - I would Like to be able to see and meet Corporate officers more often. (I was able to meet some corporate officers while on CAT Duty in Houston,TX, I was so honored) - More Copart events in which all yards can come together and get to know one another to build a bigger bond in this Copart family. - I know it is a busy position to be manager, but I feel that if managers would take the time and send an email or a quote to an employee it would make the employee feel appreciated and wanted in the company. A small thank you or good job can make an employee's day.

    Pros

    I really like the people I work with and the work environment is really fast-paced and never boring. My Manager seems to appreciate my work and my team members keep it fun. It is hard work and sometimes the hours and pace can be crazy. Management has asked employees what we think about working here and what we like/don't like and seem to be listening--computers in the field had been a headache for a long time but they just announced new equipment is being rolled out based on comments. Also seeing new benefits and stuff coming out-(newsletters, employee app, new mission-values-vision, etc). Like most things, what you get out of the job depends a lot on what you put into it.

    Cons

    Pace can be a bit tiring at times and sometimes management doesn't remove people who don't carry their weight fast enough...

    Advice to Management

    Ask the employees about the team's performance--we can probably tell you who's pulling the weight and who's not. It would be nice to have more flexibility in work hours as well.

    Pros

    Awesome medical, dental, vision, 401k, ESOP, tuition reimbursement, competitive pay. It is definitely hard work but the right person can be very successful.

    Cons

    Since Copart is a self auditing company there is alot of pressure on internal audit scores and sometimes micro managing is the only way to achieve success in the audit categories. Hires off the street over promoting from within just because the candidate looks good on paper.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you so much for being such an awesome company to work for and for all the positive changes that are coming. Maybe start something to highlight your employees that have worked their 10+ years so other people can see that it is an awesome place to work.

    Pros

    I liked the overall job itself.

    Cons

    The managers were very unprofessional. Training on their systems was the worst training experience for me. They didn't want to train you... Their idea of training was handing you earphones to listen to instructions on the computer. No physical training just videos that had nothing to do with the systems you would be using!

    Advice to Management

    The new managers that are there are probably great managers. The managers that were there have been since fired and escorted off the property for theft and money embezzling,stealing parts and cars for more money in their pockets.
