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

    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!

    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

    Love the company. Awesome benefits the company itself does the employees right the harder you work to achieve the goals set the better the company it as a whole. Family oriented when need to be.

    Cons

    Work long hours in summer hardly any family time. We wear out work shirts out faster than we are given them so we pay out of pocket for them.

    Advice to Management

    I work at dc9 in Nashville Tennessee. I transferred down from dc13 two years ago and all I gotta say is we need an undercover boss. Myself being on the bottom can't make these people understand how we are a team and as a team we can succeed but when more than half go against protocol and prefer not to do it right makes it hard on those who were trained right. I think you guys need to come down and clean house just saying. Lots go on here that makes me wonder what happen to the company. I miss Indy dc 13 more everyday. I lay my head down on my pillow at nite and think what was I thinking leaving a well goal oriented part of the company to come down and walk into a part who doesn't seem to care at all. People don't quit a company they quit a supervisor. That should tell you why the turn over rate is so high.
