    Pros

    8-5ish. Some yards follow this. Decent pay, if you are working inside. Offers over priced and essentially useless insurance.

    Cons

    Offers over priced and essentially useless insurance. Yard staff treated and paid like dogs. Unless you are the managers "favorite" you will end up rotting in the spot you are in. Well, this is how it is in my yard, YARD 144 Greer S.C.

    Advice to Management

    stop promoting the pet, promote the ones who are doing the right thing, the ones with integrity. If you want someone to succeed, give them the tools they need, stop setting people up for failure, as this WILL come around and be a direct reflection on you and your ways.

    I worked at Copart full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Busy, days go by quickly. Most locations are out of major cities so traffic to work is typically light. Monday - Friday schedule. Lower level employees see the black and white policy book as a pro but management sees it as a con as it discourages any out of the box thinking. Decent pay. Good ESPP Program and stock prices are rising.

    Cons

    Poor communication from upper management. No free thinking and does not promote employees ideas even though they try to put in efforts to do so. New "promote employee programs" consistently fail due to lack of buy-in from the executive team. They do not believe in what they are trying to sell to its employees, and many times thinks it is a waste of time. If you are in sales you must be able to drink with the bosses, if you are not a drinker and not extremely social it is hard to get in their click. They like to promote people to management because they are hard workers but often times promote those without leadership skills. To be seen as someone who is considered to be promotable you have to be "on of the guys" and keep up with their social activities.

    Advice to Management

    See employees for what they offer to the company, not if you get along with them at the bar scene. Employees have ideas and you should get the executive team to actually believe in the programs they are implementing before you implement it. Promoting employee efforts does not mean spending a lot of money to fly them all to Dallas and show off how nice corporate is. Employees who are working in old offices find the perks that corporate have as an insult rather than something cool. You should offer the same equipment perks to those in the field (like standing desks), corporate employees are just as valuable to the company as employees in the field.

    Pros

    Innovative, fast paced, and friendly environment along with work life balance. If you are smart and technically sound you will soon be acknowledged and will make your way ahead.

    Cons

    Product requirements and delivery dates don't always allow for perfect engineering practices.
    Pay could be better as well as benefits. The work environment also needed an upgrade such as gym facilities and work spaces.

    Advice to Management

    Talent acquisitions and retention
    Copart's growth is remarkable in the last 4 years and still growing along with global and local expansions.
    In order to sustain this growth, companies need more competetive employees accross all the domains. Along with this they
    need to retain thier existing talent as well.
    Hunt for gems is always tough and gems are always expensive.

    Pros

    none that I can think of other than free parking

    Cons

    Worst employer experience I have ever had. Senior "leaders" are the most unprofessional and unpolished group of people. They hire and fire based on personality, nothing to do with skill. If you drink the Kool aid and kiss up, you will thrive in this toxic environment.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house of all upper management at corporate. Find real professionals and leaders that have the skill set .
