    Pros

    I get all the hours that I could ever want. Job is pretty much a no-brainer: look up the parts, tell customer prices, pull part from shelf, and take the money. It is fun to pretend to be a car guy, and talk cars with co-workers and customers. It's a part-time job until I get my personal finances back under control. Medical bills, and lots of moving around the last decade have put me in a financial bind so am grateful to O' Reilly's offering me a job. Employee discount is a very nice perk.

    Cons

    HR has strict uniform policies and require employees to purchase O'Reilly branded uniforms. Not cool! I work a full-time job in an industry that has seen legal action on similar policies. If an employee is required to wear a uniform not only should it be provided free of cost, but employee should be compensated for time spent putting it on. It's not as if we are going to wear these uniforms any where else! Progressive discipline is the most strict that I have ever seen in over 25 years! Four unrelated incidents in less than one year can get an employee terminated. Attendance policies are pretty strict for a part-time job. I see lots of opportunities where store management can abuse employees. The low pay allows for some enlightened self-interest to discourage abuse by store management, but one never knows when some one will decide to cut off their nose to spite their face. We're doing more than flipping burgers, and we should be paid accordingly. Robots cannot do our job. Even with discount, some items are still cheaper at Wal*Mart, ex. antifreeze, but I guess one pays a little more for convenience.

    Advice to Management

    Part-time hourly employees need a lot more flexibility in their expectations. HR likes one size fits all solutions for legal and personnel situations. Policies that make sense for salaried employees in Springfield do not make as much sense for part-time hourly employees, and vice-versa. O'Reilly's has invested a lot into growing the business these past 15 years, and it is long overdue for the company to invest in its employees. Shelf-life for the typical parts specialist is about one year before they leave for another opportunity.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at O'Reilly Auto Parts (More than a year)

    Pros

    Became Night Manger within 6 months of Hire date.

    Cons

    No pay increase for all that I did. Night manager, stocked, shipper, receiving, counter person, merchandiser. Same pay for pulling 100 hours in 2 weeks. Manger looked down on me and treated me like dirt. I had to fight to get a lunch most days. The manager was not the best manager to work for/with

    Advice to Management

    Get better Mangers. Better employees. Pay raises.

    Pros

    Orally offers I high degree of job satisfaction. It is nice to assist customers in finding the correct parts for their vehicles and in some cases help them install these parts.

    Cons

    There was no chance for upward mobility in this job. Unfortunately in my distract they preferred to hire from the outside rather than promote from within.
