Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Uni-Select full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

good local management. great co-workers.

Cons

Company is far outdated technologically. Spends almost no money on advertising or continued training. And still can't understand why their sales are down.

Advice to Management

Utilize the free training offered by the national parts companies. Update your computer systems. Obtain faster internet connections(painfully slow!!). Get your name out to the masses(take a tip from o'rielly auto parts).

    Pros

    Benefits are very good. The Human Resource department really does seem to care about the employees. Unfortunately, there is their hands are tied as to what they have the ability to do.

    Cons

    Roanoke office Supervisors & Management they have NO people skills. You get NO training, and they speak to you like you are beneath them. You can't ask questions without fear you'll be reamed out. This office is like a prison, no morale, no talking, people scared to death to contact human resources for fear of being terminated. You have no management In Roanoke to go to if there are any issues. Employees keep getting more work load, with unrealistic deadlines. This is due to people leaving because of all extended hours required, and they were never replaced. When the company gets rid of a particular position, they will not move current employees into those positions. Regardless of how long they have been an employee been with the company, their experience, skills, or devotion to the company. Instead they hire temporary workers to fill those positions, and terminated the employees that the jobs have been eliminated.

    Advice to Management

    If you like working in a morgue, and clearly don't really care about your job or your character then this is the place for you. I find it hard to believe that management in the company's Corporate Headquarters is blind to what is actually happening to this location of their company. Or either, they just don't care, and money is their bottom line not people. NEWS ALERT!! People, customers, and employees are what makes a company.


  2. "Not a bad place to work overall!"

    Pros

    Very stable company, great experience-you will definitely learn working for this company. Work environment is high pressure with high praise - Management thanks its employees as often as possible.

    Cons

    Work - Life balance is not the best. There is a lack of structure in onboarding employees. Many times rules change and everyone is unaware. The company is behind the times with technology.

    Advice to Management

    The company should update its technology. The company should not be so quick to aquire other companies until they can control the businesses they already own. The company needs to create a brand identity for itself.
