    I worked at Copart full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Many portions of your operations are semi-independent, so you truly get to bond with your staff, build and mentor a good team. Compensation can potentially be good (if your location is large). Unless your staff falls flat on their face, you typically get something of a bonus. If you're willing to relocate, you can advance quickly and to a larger, more profitable yard which directly translates to better compensation. Benefits...

    Cons

    Your compensation is pegged directly to the size of your yard NOT skill or ability. So be prepared to relocate if you want to advance. Bonus - ignore it. The KPI used is constantly changing; published well in the mid-year and most are metrics you lack authority to directly impact. As a General Manager, you have very little discretion on how to run your business; Not allowed a company credit card for expenses or travel....

    Advice to Management

    Limit the number of changes to the Bonus structure to once every few years; it gives managers the ability to implement, mature and benefit from improvement changes. if you need to make a change, publish them BEFORE the fiscal year begins. Allow managers to run their business. Instead of requiring the manager to get approval for every expense above $500, establish budget with projections & forecast and allow them to...

    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Copart full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The benefits, are awesome at copart. You have plenty of opportunity to move up in the company if you just do your job, and do it well.

    Cons

    Very unreasonable when it comes to helping management get pay they deserve. Unless you’re a GM or higher, it doesn’t seem like you matter enough to make your paycheck worth your time and effort.

    Advice to Management

    Help your management out, Yard managers/supervisors, and office managers/ supervisors. They do the grunt work and take a lot off the GMs desk. Make it worth it for them. You lose a lot of good people, over a little extra help.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Copart full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Decent salary, as I was in management. Benefits were above average.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. No communication. Constant bullying from upper management. Demanded overtime to fix problems, yet never fixed the problem. Always putting out fires instead of finding the root cause and eliminating the issues. No room for advancement unless you were buddies with someone higher up.

    Advice to Management

    Clean up the smaller problems and maybe you will keep employees .
