Love the company, but frustrated at store level

Current Employee - OSR
Current Employee - OSR

I have been working at Autopart International

Pros

Time off when needed, pushed to excel but not beyond capabilities. Honor, Integrity, Fairness play key roles in operational business decissions in regards with customers and employees.

Cons

Hard to get promoted/noticed unless you are one of the "old" crew from up north.
Business is in serious growing stage, which unfortunately makes holes in other areas of support.
OSRs are what get the phones ringing, Store personnel get credit for the sales.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to truly empower the store personnel to take ownership of the store. This is preached, but only in a few rare circumstances is this heeded. Change pay plan for OSRs, why should store manager bonus off my work and get credit - while i get neither?

    I have been working at Autopart International

    Pros

    never in one place. can get a day off whenever needed.

    Cons

    never expect any more money an hour. always be told that someone needs something right away even tho you get paid no more to be in a hurry. lose all sick time and vacation time at the end of the year with no fair warning. having counter people getting bonused for safe drivers - when the drivers get nothing. full timers gt paid the same as part timers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay the drivers more since we are half of the business.

    I have been working at Autopart International part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Having customers who will hook you up with discounted work on your personal vehicle; Discounted prices on parts; Flexible scheduling

    Cons

    Management above the store manager suck; been here for over a year and still have yet to see a raise; you get yelled at for their mistake or the customers mistake; when they have a position open they don't ever promote from within the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote from within the company! There are a bunch of drivers who would love to move up to a counter position when one opens! Give raises at least once a year! I mean living off of $9.00/hour is not going to pay the bills or support a family!
