I worked at O'Reilly Auto Parts full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Hours are great, flexible shifts, does not force up-sale limits,

Cons

Mangers and District managers lack communication skills, show favoritism and if they don't like you force you out of the company. If you like to kiss butt you will go far and wide, but if not you might make it to a year. No drug testing creates a huge environmental problem until something happens. I have worked with several mangers drunk or high. No ability to grow with company. No respect for those under the management team, no appreciation, and the bonus is a joke, if its called commission, its pennies. To much turnover, alot of internal theft and Managers are never in the stores when they should be. Lack of communication between upper corporate and management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If you want people to stay, treat them with respect, make them feel appreciated, listen to what is being said, investigate when something has been told, drug test, you might be surprised on who is doing what. there is way to much favoritism, lack of respect , and those who don't fit your culture make all the big bucks and treat others unfair. District mangers who come from competition want only their following to work for them, you are willing to let the best qualified people go. Corporate needs to review and visit stores with anonymous ways to let people know whats going on in the stores.

    I have been working at O'Reilly Auto Parts full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    You get to be promoted if you can kiss ass. Also, it helps if you can be lazy. I have never seen a company that is so unorganized in my life. They strive to be the dominant auto parts supplier in their district and they have a LONG way to go. Also the health benefits are not good, and they cant seem to figure out why their sales keep going down. Its because their employees do not give them a good reputation! Management system is horrible. I am viewed as an assistant manager only when the assistant manager is not there, and there are some employees that are given all the responsibilities of an assistant manager but paid as a RSS.

    Cons

    Salary is not good at all. Even at the store manager level. If you have a problem with another employee, you will be told to keep your mouth shut and to ignore them. Its like they have forgotten that this is the real world and they think this is elementary school and if they ignore their problems it will go away. Pay is just a bit over minimum. They do not work with your hours at all. If you have time off, very rarely are you even allowed to use it. Dont make the same mistake that I did. Save yourself the hassle and dont even bother filling out the application for this place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage your team, Learn time management and maybe corporate should offer free classes for anger management. Learn how to listen and communicate with your employees better. If someone has a complaint that is valid, please take care of it. Dont push it aside and hope that it will go away.
