    I worked at O'Reilly Auto Parts (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Oreilly's was an equal opportunity employer. When they seen potential on someone, they worked with that person to get their full potential. I worked my way from a part time parts person to a store manager fairly quickly. As a manager, I managed 4 different store at my own will and made a positive difference in all. I was working closely with the district manager because that was my next step in my career before I left.

    Cons

    The only cons I can really come up with was the balance between work life and personal life.

    Advice to Management

    Management was great.


  2. Excellent opportunities for advancement!

    I have been working at O'Reilly Auto Parts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been with this company for a year and four months and just got promoted to Assistant store manager. If you work hardand do the little things no one else wants to, management notices. They have great benefits and an awesome culture, not to mention, great discounts.

    Cons

    Pay is below average, you don't really start making good money until you get to store manager level.

    Advice to Management

    Pay hard working employees what they're worth. When considering productivity, look at everything they do at the store, not just sales and numbers.

    I worked at O'Reilly Auto Parts part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have learned more at O'Reilly auto parts than i have at Lincoln college of technology, great learning experience, and betters you as person overall. Easy job so long as you apply your efforts. Paid hourly and based on commission. Management is good about placing recognition where it is due. Depending on job openings, you could move up fairly quickly.

    Cons

    Their punishment are completely unorthodox to negativity that was done. And commission has negativity to it as well. I work my butt off every day to make sure everything gets done while at times co-workers have stood behind the counter to get the commission on sales up.

    Advice to Management

    31 screen, 7 screen to look at related sales. Type each counter number on employee sales (day end screen), make notice of who has some of the highest sales. Pay attention to how they tend the customers. Judge weather or not the are really carrying the o'reilly name the correct way.

    I have been working at O'Reilly Auto Parts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast retail environment, managers very knowledgeable, Springfield tech support for difficult questions, Linux computer systems, sales pressure isn't extreme.

    Cons

    Low pay, more responsibilities than what you were told, very difficult customers at time, and there's always the once a month cooperate phone shop to make sure we're doing our jobs correctly on the phones.

    Advice to Management

    We make so much money as a company and I'm in a management position! I'm a full time RSS and I'm only making $8.50 an hour. What's up with that Mr. O'Reilly?
