Copart Direct is a completely mismanaged and poorly thought out idea...

Pros

Most of the people are good to work with and rely on each other when constantly put in a situation where directions are not clear and management really has no idea what is going on. It seems that just about every level of management likes to "pass the buck" and blame their boss for decisions, policies and overall morale problems.

Cons

Not many. It's not a place where potential changes are discussed, just implemented and then changed later when they realize it was a knee-jerk reaction and probably should have been planned better. They pay is ridiculously low and the demands for production are, of course, high. In general this is not a place where anyone feels they have a long term future or chance at growing with the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make an attempt to know what you are doing before you implement changes - only to reverse them later when you've kicked the proverbial hornet's nest.

    I worked at Copart

    Pros

    Seemed to ha e a decent benefit package ne er used it

    Cons

    Attemped multible business models during divisional startup without transparency with its team. Held the livelyhood of many employees as they searched for the golden egg. No regard for team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transparent business approach has always worked in the past. Give employees insight as to the direction and your team may surprise you.

    Pros

    Banking hours, no weekends, and hour lunches.

    Cons

    Extremely high turnover rate! Please train your managers out there in california to be very helpful and productive. The one in Greer has been there 8 going on 9 months and still doesn't even know what he is doing. Upper level needs to consider training there csr for at least 3 weeks, so tasks are completed successful. Every week someone is getting fired or quitting....Copart has poor management all the way up to upper level. At the Greer, SC location there are no seasoned employees. There is no formal training here and they realize that....Copart is set up for people to fail. The manager there now is clueless as to what his actual responsibility is.....He can't even assist customers at the counter....I don't know what kind of business they are running, but it isn't a good one....DO NOT APPLY FOR A JOB HERE.....OVER WORKED, NO REWARDS, BUT THEY WILL GLADLY WRITE YOU UP AND FIRE YOU IN YOUR FIRST WEEK OR TWO OF EMPLOYMENT. NO OVERTIME EITHER

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop telling your employees what to do and you learn how to do it. If your employees know how to run the business and the GM doesn't then we need his pay!!!
