    Pros

    Learning bunch of new things everyday, friendly co workers, flexible time: you can ask your manager if you want more or less hours, at least 18h/wk, good pay for a student, you can have a break whenever the store is not busy

    Cons

    You may get super busy with customers and phone calls at the same time.

    Pros

    This is a great company for someone with ambition and willing to relocate to advance quickly.

    Cons

    The pay is not as high as it should be when starting out, but benefits and better pay as you progress make it worth while.

    Pros

    O'Reilly's a "real" company, a market leader in the auto parts retail industry, selling both to auto repair shops and do-it-yourselfers with a chain of almost 4,000 stores nationwide. They have a mature management structure, a stable environment and, in these times, great benefits. They're a solid employer.

    Cons

    Being headquartered in Springfield, Missouri, a tiny town in the South-West corner of the state, their pool of corporate talent has been fairly limited and somewhat "inbred." (No "Deliverance" jokes, please!) They have an "intern" program at the local college, they hire their people directly out of there (or even out of high school) and promote almost exclusively from within. Result: An entire company with the attitude of "we've always done it this way." Don't expect to come in with fresh ideas and get anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    New blood would help. The new Senior VP of Information Systems, formerly the CIO of Payless Shoes, could be a game changer - if he's allowed to be.
