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

    Pros

    Friendly working environment and training opportunities were abundant.

    Cons

    District management seemed to have no intention of creating a good working climate and competitiveness among employees was "forced" upon us through published statistics posted in the store.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on establishing management-employee relationships which create better employees, better customer relations, and an overall improved working environment.

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

    Pros

    There is always room to advance and move up the ladder, and you can do it quickly too. You also get to meet the district and regional managers fairly often, so you know who you're working for.

    Cons

    You're not always guaranteed to work at the location you were hired for. They like to trade employees around quite a bit. Also they're very particular about how you answer phone calls. All of your interactions are very scripted and you can be written up for straying from the script.

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on beating the competition in how late the store stays open, and focus more on making the store more efficient. Replace broken machines and hire more people.

    Pros

    They pay well, and take care of their employees.

    Cons

    I was a Materials Handler. No one talks to anyone else while working; there is no reason to. You just push along until all parts are picked. It wasn't for me.

    Advice to Management

    Be a bit more lively, it's like an old folks' home in the offices.
