    Pros

    Every day you get differant situations for people's auto parts needs, getting to work with retail and wholesale is a plus. Having goals and being challenged is great.

    Cons

    Seems like a lot of turn over and finding good team members who can or are willing to multitask seems to be the greatest challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Make your way around to praise a little more. Even a note in the mail can ralley up the team.

    Pros

    I have been with the company for almost 4 years now. I started as a driver specialist and worked my way up. If you have the drive, attitude, and motivation, there will always be opportunity. If you're willing to learn and gain experience to improve yourself for the company, success will always be with you.

    Cons

    Compared to other auto part companies, we may be underpaid. I think with a better scale in pay, there will be more motivation from others.

    Pros

    Great experience. Good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Good ol' boy mentality. Lots of promotions based on who you know, how well liked you are and how many drinks you have at happy hour. Turnover rate at HQ is awful. You can make much more else where in town.

    Advice to Management

    Work harder to compete with local businesses so the turnover rate goes down.

    Pros

    Good work environment, you learn while you work, have many programs you help you learn new things and advance.

    Cons

    If management is bad, you will be miserable, promotions are a bit unjust, need automotive experience.

    Advice to Management

    Please be more selective on whom you hore, not experience wise but make sure they have the drive to actually work, oh and let me give them consequences or reprimands if they refuse to do their jobs.

    Pros

    A company where all members of management started with the company and worked their way up. Means great respect for the business. Years of experience that is passed down to every team member that gets trained. A strong family type atmosphere where everyone is treated with respect. Strongly stands by EXCELLENT customer service. Strives to Never Say No! Founded by the O'Reilly Family who still is part of the company. Some of the greatest selection

    Cons

    Compensation Having some growing pains with rapid expansion across the country.

    Advice to Management

    Reevaluate the compensation offered to team members from the bottom all the way up. The team members of this company are really what make it so great. Be sure they feel appreciated and not just like another number.

    Pros

    Easy job, great educational program for entry level automotive tech

    Cons

    Was at Oreillys for a year and a half, didn't recieve a raise. If The management doesn't like you, it'd be in your best interest to look for another job.

    Advice to Management

    Better wages for employees = better work
