    Former Employee - Parts Specialist in Hacienda Heights, Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at O'Reilly Auto Parts part-time for more than a year

    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....

    I have been working at O'Reilly Auto Parts

    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.

    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

    Great company and culture. Good ability to move up in company as a career. Good benefits

    Cons

    HR Department Management has rigid expectations when it comes to the workload and commensurable pay. While they have a good corporate culture, they place too much emphasis on you conforming to their identity instead of having balance. They should recognize more the strengths and experience of their employees to catapult the organization further instead of stifling the input of those with credible outside experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the strengths of others as a way to leverage manpower, foster creativity, and build ownership.
