    I worked at Copart full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are no pros in working for this company. The one perk is its an 8-5 job for the employees at the auction facilities with little overtime.

    Cons

    Senior management refers to the employees as "little people with the $10/hr jobs, you know the common dumb people!" A direct quote from a Senior VP to managers below him. HR department is told to make sure all salaries are as low as possible compared to the industry b/c they do not want to overpay anyone. Copart will not pay you if you are on JURY duty b/c you didn't work so you do not get paid. Senior management is completely separated from reality and makes sure they are taken care of with private jets, meeting in nice hotels with expensive meals and they do nothing for their employees. The new home office in Dallas the "little people" work on one level and the executives are on the upper floor b/c they are to good to mingle with the "little people."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    NONE.. they wouldn't listen if you gave them any b/c they know it all according to themselves! The executive team does nothing but praise themselves whenever there is a meeting. In my 3 years with this company they have never asked a "little person/ common worker" for any input when making changes. They institute a change without any thought or analysis only to try and change it back 4 days later. Senior management is a joke.

    I worked at Copart full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you can bamboozle them with a flashy powerpoint you are in.

    Cons

    This company has a very top down approach and consistently falis to look to the experience they have in-house to help incrase their company brand. They like flashy presentations and cool spreadsheets that may or may not have actual data to backup the info.
