    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

    O'Reilly Auto Parts is a great place to grow your professional and personal career. There is plenty of room for advancement opportunities and a real family attitude from all management. There is not a requirement for a college degree, so anyone with a good work ethic and a good head on their shoulders can go from driving a delivery truck to running their own parts stores in a matter of a year to two years. As far as the upper management is concerned, they have great support in the corporate headquarters willing to help anyone with anything from benefits to looking up parts.

    Cons

    A little on the lower scale of the pay grade

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to pay people what their worth

    Pros

    Employees are easy to get along with, the management is wonderful, and the schedule is flexible. I work hard at my job, and I am happy where I am at.

    Cons

    It is a retail job, which means that you must work the weekends as well as nights, but all in all it is a great part-time job.

    Advice to Management

    I would wish that our hours would not get cut in the winter when it is sloooow, and I would like the Management to be easier on my Store Manager.

    Pros

    Some of the best things about working at O'Reilly Auto Parts is the people you work with and the customers you see or talk to everyday. We sell top of the line parts and have employees that know about cars and car parts and will go the extra mile to help out a customer when able. There are lots of opportunities to learn more and to advance in the company.

    Cons

    On the downside and I don't know if it is like this in all districts or stores but there is alot of the who you know and who you are friends with to get anywhere.

    Advice to Management

    I know there is alot for the managers to take care of paperwork, customers, inventory just to name a few things but the one thing they forget about is the employees. We do our jobs and alot of us do more than we are asked or that is expected of us once in awhile it would be nice if you would give a pat on the back to those who deserve it.

    Pros

    I love the hours- I am satisfied with my pay- In general O'Reilly Auto is a great place to work.

    Cons

    As in pretty much any warehouse to cold in the winter and to hot in the summer,

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the concerns of your employees, a lot of them are genuine and need to be addressed. Maybe some kind of activity committee could be reinstated. Some people want the music back in the warehouse.

    Pros

    There is a good working atmosphere among employees and management. You can always feel free to talk to management about problems you might have.

    Cons

    The biggest downside is the weekend work. I have a sick spouse and really need the weekends off but to be fair to the rest of the team members i carry my share.

    Advice to Management

    I can't offer any feedback to the leadership or management because i am satisfied with the job they do. I am a driver and that is all.
