    Pros

    Opportunity to grow if you put forth the effort, nothing is handed to you. Commission plus salary.

    Cons

    The hourly employees are a mixed bag. Some part timers are gold, some of the full timers are self centered and display a massive sense of entitlement. The company provides GREAT training, you just have to put forth the effort to learn. There IS growth opportunity. Just takes time to get moved up and get everything needed to move up. Slow competitor acquisition and upgrade the I.T. still using DOS.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a lot of busywork in the company, which is very important, but if you're in a high volume store it's impossible to get done. As a store manager, work diligently at moving a hard worker up the ladder. Delegate effectively.

    Pros

    The best thing for those who are hungry to learn, when it is slow they computers have a system that you log into and go through training programs that teach you in depth about vehicle components. Its a laid back job.

    Cons

    I can only speak for my area, our regional manager was one of the worst people I have worked with. I was the # sales associate in my store working part time, not taking brakes to help customers with what ever they needed because i was one of the most knowledgeable when it came to cars. When ever the regional manager was around he would stand behind you and watch and critique your every move in make you sell the most expensive items to people who clearly couldn't afford it. In addition to him really, in all honesty not knowing anything about cars. And every other employ and store manger will tell you the same thing about that Regional Manager.
    Little to no opportunity for growth

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay closer attention to what your sales associates have to say about management that is making them lie about products being sold in addition to making sure they know a little more then the average employe who is there because they like the automotive industry because at the end of the day they make themselves look like fools for talking about something they really shouldn't be.

    Pros

    I really enjoy working for the Store Manager. He is a Phenomenal Person. Great P/T gig for some extra cash flow.

    Cons

    Too many "lazy" associates that are clueless on what it takes to exceed in a real work env.

    Not enough time is given for the tranining modules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The one thing that bothers me the most is the lack of accountability in regards to the actions of lazy employees'. That is a HUGE Morale Killer. Just my two cents....

    Pros

    My co-workers are excellent to work with but to be asked if there are any pros with the company my answer would be NO!!!!.

    Cons

    The company should be embarrassed on what they pay there employees they want to pay minimum wage and only work you 20 to 25 hours a week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit expecting $15 dollars an hour worth the work for $7.95 an hour maybe if the company would pay a livable wage they would not have such a high turn over rate and happier employees that value there job.

    Pros

    Friendly Staff, Great parts and pricing!

    Cons

    Won't give people full time, The Manager refuses to stay for his whole shift! Won't give me full time and to top it all off my whole check goes to just gas!!! I don't live close to my store at all!!! They won't transfer me to a closer store or even give me a pay rase. If your not over 23 don't bother applying at the Cottage Grove Store the manager will refuse to hire you! Never get time that i request off and no weekends off! Don't make plans if you work here they will call you in all the time!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe in the O'Reilly values and love to company but please take some more time to make sure you put the right people in management!

    Pros

    Solid leadership and culture values. This company will be very successful without a doubt.

    Cons

    More value needs to be placed on positions which do not directly affect the growth of the company. This suggests all employees are treated equally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward all employees within the company for the overall success of the company.
