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

    Pros

    I've been here for 4 years as a Software Developer. I started as an intern and was hired on full time after I graduated and learned more through my internship and job than I ever did at the university.

    My managers have always been wonderful. They are supportive in my career goals, constantly asking what they can do better to make my job here more desirable, and always lend a listening ear.

    Anytime I offer up an idea for improving the way we do things, I know that it will be heard and taken seriously. I've seen drastic changes through the way the teams work together to get things done that are a direct result of team members stepping up and asking for change to better the company and the way we do things.

    There's no greater reward than seeing the impact that we have on our team members and our customers. The ability to build tools to make a team member's job easier is a fantastic challenge and one that is always met with feedback and a sense of accomplishment.

    Cons

    The company is growing rapidly, especially at the corporate office. Things get a little tight around here, but they are activity expanding the building to make more room for our growing departments. I don't mind having a space issue if it means the company I am working for is expanding rapidly due to success.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to your team members and be supportive of their ideas and aspirations in their careers. The more you empower your team members to step up and offer ideas, the larger the idea pool becomes. The larger the idea pool the better the chance of coming up with the most effective approaches to solving problems.

    Pros

    managers seem to trust employee's expertise when needed, employees are treated the best compared to similar chain stores, discount is fantastic, generally a positive atmosphere in each store.

    Cons

    horrible retail hours are unavoidable. You'll have to hear the annoying jingle every single day. Who approved that song, really? Otherwise, this is the best auto parts store to work for by far.

    Advice to Management

    You'd retain employees longer if you could give a livable schedule.

    Pros

    Great exposure to the Auto Parts industry, very hands on and retail oriented. Great discounts on parts and willing to work around school schedules.

    Cons

    Although you do receive commission every month it still seems as though we should be paid more hourly due to the amount of work we do.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that we work just as much and hard as you so do not downplay our knowledge or abilities.
