    Pros

    The start salary was ok, the people I worked with were very supporting and helpful. The locations and customers were very good.

    Cons

    Auto's not kept up to date on maintenance. Most of the maintenance except oil change was done by drivers. Company testing completions were not recognized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pros

    Great company. Great benefits They have a great training program, when used..

    Cons

    We have a manager that does not care about the store or workers. He only reflects on things that makes him look good. We cannot keep employees because of him. They get no training, only what it takes to get hired! They have no schedule! Makes it to fit when he wants to work. I have been working for the company 10 years. I make $4.00 more than when i started. I am a merchandiser. I open the store when the manager calls me at 5:00 AM. I am a counter person, do returns, stock lifts recalls, clean the bathrooms, i do whatever needs to be done . I take pride in my job and wont to have the best looking store in my district. I care about my fellow team workers. TEAM WORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK! When it is done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My DM is aware of the situation. We cannot understand why we have to work with this. We all come to work because we love our jobs and our CUSTOMERS. Without them we have no job.

    I have been working at O'Reilly Auto Parts full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits. The opportunities are there for people who have the aptitude to run their own store. I have made a lot of friends, both customers and coworkers. There is always something different, and the work never gets boring. Helping customers solve their problems is a very rewarding job. The majority of our customers are easy to deal with as long as you treat them with respect.

    Cons

    Moving beyond store manager is tough. Long hours and lots of pressure to meet sales goals. Loss prevention auditors can pop in any day. Audits are inconsistent, and your score depends on who you have for your auditor. Your end of year bonus is mostly affected by your audit score. At least they only come in once a year. Finding good people is the hardest part of a store manager's job. Employee theft can be a real problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let store managers use their vacation time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start recognizing when you have good talent working for you. I worked for you for 7 years and obtained bachelors and masters degrees in business while working nearly full time... you never attempted to keep me there... that is a major flaw on your upper managements part to keep good people in your company.

    Sometimes depending on staffing the scedule can get a little hectic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In my own words the managment is pretty good. At least in my district/region. Keep up the work.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere in work place with employers. Good pay. Good hours.

    Patrons are sick. They degrade women and managers won't do anything about it unless they physically touch you.

    Do something about the customers harassing your workers
