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

Pros

Great to be involved in day to day and customer services.

Cons

Big Box company to a T. Limited resources for payroll. Expect amazing results with far underpaid TMs

Advice to Management

Invest in the counterman. They are the front line. At a tick above minimum wage you get what you pay for.

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

    Pros

    Only Auto parts Company that I know of that would rather promote from within as opposed to hiring outside people when qualified people are available. Senior Management does not give the impression that they think they are any better than any team member. As far as I know, Senior Management started with the Company as Team Members and through hard work and dedication, have moved their way up the ladder. Best Company I have ever worked for. I have worked for the Nations largest Automotive Retailer in fixed operations.

    Cons

    Sometimes the hours at the store can get long, but all Store Managers should know what is expected when they accept the job. I was well informed before I too the position.

    Pros

    Great starting job to learn a lot about automobiles and equipment.

    Low pay for the amount of work and the knowledge given out. Making 20,000 dollars a month for the company and only getting 8 dollars an hour.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more when employees make alot of money.
