I have been working at Uni-Select

Pros

working in the stores can be a fun place to work, with the fast pace and good people to work with. if you are hired as a full time you will always get full time hours (40 hours)

Cons

management from corporate will show up randomly and throw there weight around, the pay is weak and only get raises once a year at a meager rate. the head of the ct. division is a warehouse guy who has no idea how to run a retail store. they don't advertise so no sales to draw customers. the system they use for sales in clumsy. and the worst thing is the floaters they have are given a pittance of a gas allowance and expected to drive all over the state

Advice to ManagementAdvice

pay better, advertise and let floaters and store managers use the company vehicles

    The corporate world has destroyed the old time parts store. Trying to copy the other guys to much.

    I have been working at Uni-Select full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    People I work with are great, excellent discount, flexible hours.

    Cons

    It's turned into another crappy retail job with orders coming from across the country from people who haven't sold a part in 20 years. Spend some money on advertising.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Force everyone to work 2 weeks at the counter per year so they have a clue as to what goes on at the local level.

    I have been working at Uni-Select full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly bosses and staff with great attitude and generally understanding on personal situations. The bosses work hard and seem to have us in mind and allow a lot of opportunities but seem a little too relaxed with firing staff.

    Cons

    The only cons are that some of the workers have some issues with hygiene and soberness. and that they pay is quite low.
