    I have been working at O'Reilly Auto Parts part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Decent shifts (7-9 hrs.) I find that we have more knowledgeable people than other parts stores. Retail employees get a commission on what they sell each month.

    Cons

    Pay is a downside for sure. The schedule is given late almost every week, which can be frustrating at times. Sales and KPI goals can prevent getting raises.
