    Pros

    Really chill as a parts driver due to the fact that most of the time goes by while delivering parts. I had the opportunity to work with some of the nicest people and getting to know our clients was a blast.

    Cons

    Due to most shops being closed on weekends or only partially open, I was moved from my position as a driver to a cashier and my lack of knowledge about troubleshooting cars hindered my ability to assist customers as I would like.

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

    Pros

    Good discount on parts/accys; work is not labor intensive, some good customers you can deal with-depends on store location and surrounding area.

    Cons

    Raises are few and low; DM can override a Mgr's decision and you get no explanation why. If you can fog up a mirror, you can get hired. Had to deal with team members who show up late or leave early and this increased the work load on all other members. These team members weren't wrote up or talked to about their attendance and they just did what they pleased. Some had personal hygiene issues that were gross at times. If the DM liked you, you could get raises and things you did wrong were overlooked most of the time. My store had 4 mgrs. in 3 yrs.

    Advice to Management

    If you want true Parts Professionals, you will have to pay more, respect your team members, and don't constantly find things they do that are wrong. Finding good things they do are appreciated.
