    Pros

    I've never been so supported in my career goals or allowed the opportunity to thrive and challenge myself in my skill set!

    Cons

    No cons, just a natural understanding that any large company requires a level of diplomacy and compromise when balancing the goals of multiple departments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep building up your employees and fostering collaboration between departments!

    Pros

    There is always work, management cares, family friendly company. Really good discount on car parts and good training. Friendly people.

    This is a large company that has grown really fast. Seems to have lost some of its culture and small company feel.

    Pros

    Very easy going, and fun atmosphere to work in. I like all the people I work with

    Cons

    Sometimes a little redundant. Can be boring but it comes and goes. You need to know a bit about car parts to help customers

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

    Pros

    I love helping people. You don't have to know a lot about cars, most of the time it's a learn as you go process (provided you have a good teacher)

    Cons

    They are a big company, so giving raises/reasonable pay isn't their forte.
    Also they only really hire part time employees and work them full time hours so they don't have to give you a raise/insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Be a good leader, not a bossy one.
    Don't let anyone think they can treat you a certain way, and don't be afraid to speak your mind.

    I have been working at O'Reilly Auto Parts part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a pretty decent place to work at if you're a college student barely starting out. The schedules are made by the manager instead of made by corporate so it can be very flexible. You learn a lot and you get to meet all kinds of people every day. If you don't have any mechanic or vehicle knowledge then you will learn pretty quickly.

    Cons

    The only few gripes I have about working here is the pay just isn't enough for all the responsibilities that you are tasked with. Also, there are a few management figures that make you wonder how they even got their position.

    Advice to Management

    My honest advice? Find a better way to assess how well a person would be in their management position.

    Pros

    If you deliver you get outside a lot and the day goes by fast.

    Cons

    Low pay, angry management, but they run a tight ship and very little shrinkage. Buy stock if you can!

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourself, you're no better than the rest of us!
