    I worked at O'Reilly Auto Parts

    Pros

    Regular hours and nice coworkers

    Cons

    Paid less than $9.00 hour, after a year, got an 18¢/hr raise - these are men who have been in executive jobs, retired, and are doing this job - what a joke. They sent drivers out in trucks in blizzard weather with no sand bags to weigh them down, knowingly sent a driver out with a tire problem and he got stuck with a flat tire. When absenteeism was called in due to open heart surgery, they said not to worry - they'd find someone to take his place. Not one word as to how he was doing - and never called to ask later. Only to ask why it was taking so long to get back to work. Horrible company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay a decent salary, treat employees with the respect you think you deserve, and maintain the trucks so that your employees are being sent out in a safe vehicle. After all, you're supposed to be an auto service company. Put your back where your mouth is.

    I worked at O'Reilly Auto Parts full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Very few Pros to talk about...

    Cons

    They say show me what you can do and then we'll pay you. Was hired and was paid 4k less than someone that has been there 10 years. They have a lot of tenured people that have never worked any where else and do not understand the true corporate world.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring in new blood at the top and then start paying your people. Stop trying to build a bunch of new stores and take that money and refocuses it on customer service in your existing stores. You'll see a lot more growth and return on your investment.

    Pros

    Great benefits if they will let you work full time.

    Cons

    Treated like a number, horrible pay, they always promise a raise but never do it, company loves sending pictures of the companies lavish corporate parties but refuse to acknowledge the deprived employees who do it all...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit looking at everyone as a number and only seeing dollar signs... Your employees are who run your company while you run it into the ground. I'm

    I have been working at O'Reilly Auto Parts full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee discount, made a few great friends working there

    Cons

    You are working for minimum wage pretty much (after 3 years I make .40 cent above the state minimum, but I have keys to the store), VERY poor management, no recognition for good employees, good luck getting full time, Manager is trained to starve payroll in return you get a very stressed out RSS/Assistant Manager, their overpriced health insurance is a joke, I could go on and on about how this company does not value their employees but you get the point.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are a successful company because of the people that work for you. If you take care of your good employees you wont have the extremely high turn around rate. Update your training modules, good attempt but not at all informative. The pay is the biggest issue, I have had past co workers quit to go work at a major fast food restaurant because they pay more.
