Mission: OEC develops parts ordering solutions for the global automotive industry.
Creating a Smarter OE Parts Marketplace.
OEC® is an award-winning technology leader and innovator of original equipment (OE) replacement parts solutions. As the automotive industry's largest OE parts marketplace, OEC connects more than 100,000 North American buyers and sellers to seamlessly market, manage, and move an average of over 6 million original equipment parts transactions monthly.
Serving the industries of Automotive, Heavy-Duty truck and beyond, OEC equips some of the world's largest original equipment manufacturers, their franchised dealers/distributors, and their customers with timely and accurate online parts marketing, procurement, and wholesale management solutions.
OEC's market leadership is built on collaboration, innovation, and a deep understanding of original equipment replacement parts supply chains. It also relies on the technical knowledge of our associates, who apply their know-how to develop leading-edge, specialized solutions.
This expertise drives market-wide results helping original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their franchised distribution networks to increase OE parts sales, drive greater operational efficiencies, and enhance overall customer satisfaction.
At the heart of the OEC business is e-commerce and business intelligence technology. These services have succeeded in changing the way the marketplace orders and purchases original equipment parts. Once a highly traditional market dependent on phone and fax for parts accuracy, OEC solutions provide buyers with 24/7, self-serve access, and sellers with online ordering efficiencies and upsell opportunities.
OEC parts procurement solutions create market transparency by aggregating all available replacement parts inventory into a single OE virtual parts warehouse. Containing nearly 50 million parts, this virtual warehouse provides OEMs with previously unavailable market visibility - and parts movement and purchase intelligence - to more efficiently:
With this visibility, once-linear supply chains are transformed into highly efficient and fluid supply networks, optimizing inventory and facilitating delivery of the right part, to the right place, at the right times.
OEC also offers a wide range of OEM and retailer parts marketing solutions that integrate OEM competitive programs for optimal impact at the point-of-wholesale purchase. These solutions manage complex reconciliation, reimbursement, and financial settlement processes while also helping dealers more effectively compete against non-OE parts providers.

I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at OEConnection in December 2015.
He wasted the first 10 minutes of the interview by describing the company, telling me what I already knew from spending some time on the company website. (He already knew that I'd done my research because I commented on one of their press releases, telling him how I handled a similar situation a previous employer.) From there it was all down hill with a string of questions which were irrelevant to the level of the job opening.
