    I worked at Uni-Select part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee discount was all that was good.
    Nothing else. Newer cars to drive.
    Did not pay for gas.had sundays off...
    And closed early.

    Cons

    Management needs to talk and listen to the front line guys doing all the grunt work so the could live the good life.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out sales.

    I worked at Uni-Select full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Uni-Select is focussed on customer service, and does a decent job trying to make things right for the customer . . . especially in some of the smaller markets.

    Cons

    Continuing to have issues with inventory control within their distribution centers. Domestic corporate HQ is outside of Buffalo, NY, and provides a limited amount of support for facilities due to distance and staff availability.

    Advice to Management

    Spend the money necessary to correct the inventory issues that cause problems for the downline customers. Increase the HR support to operations in the field.

    I worked at Uni-Select full-time

    Pros

    There are No pros working for this horribly runned company! Oh yes there may be one, now that Icahn Enterprises has bought them out. Hopefully Carl Icahn will clean house and find people that know how to run an Auto Parts business.

    Cons

    Upper management has no idea what customers needs are to make company profitable. Divisional Managers will lie to you on what you can do, and then get you fired for doing it. All DM's are running scared. Here's a company that can take a successful store that did 3.5 million a year and are now slowly destroying it.

    Advice to Management

    New owner's need to get rid of all Divisional Managers and useless upper management and let the Store Managers do what they do everyday to be profitable and successful. Stop The Micro Managing!

    I have been working at Uni-Select (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Someone wishes they could make it work. They're wrong.

    Cons

    Worst management group I've ever encountered. No vision or respect for employees and disregard for values management claims to espouse. Anti-American attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves. You've lost all loyalties you need to succeed here.

    I worked at Uni-Select (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good hours and great customers.

    Cons

    You work your butt off because your always short handed. The managers don't appreciate anything you do. The salesman and the Manager do nothing then corporate blames the asst. Manager and everyone else for not getting new accounts. Then they lay you off after being the 14 years knowing your a single parent of 2. They make you work all day then lay you off at 5 on Friday at the end of the month. And if your a woman in this company you will get paid much less than a man will.

    Advice to Management

    When you have someone who worked their butt off for your company and stuck through everything when everyone was leaving and they stayed and did the manager's job for months at a time without being paid for it. You let go of the wrong person.

    I have been working at Uni-Select full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The good people that I have made friends with.

    Cons

    New COO is a hatchet man. Cut 450 jobs and the stock went up, what a hero. Management grills sales people with weekly conference calls where everyone gets called on the carpet. Reports and more reports. Cut wages, insurance, car plan, etc. And why do I still work here? Moral is worse than a POW camp. Employees at all levels hate this company and are bailing out of this sinking ship. Cut, cut, cut and more cuts. This company will work you to death, pay you little, steal your confidence and then kick you to the curb. Heartless and ruthless.

    Advice to Management

    Canadians - We know you hate the U.S. Operation so sell it already. If you can. This company was a nice one to work for when the family owned it and you have run it aground. You must change the brutal culture here and treat people like human beings. If not, this ship will sink in short order.

    I have been working at Uni-Select full-time

    Pros

    From the worker's level, we came together to do the job... kinda like how some slaves were cool with each other having to deal with the head master...

    Cons

    Worst place I have ever worked ever... Didnt get anything for pay, yet you were on MANDATORY OVERTIME on saturdays and some sundays. management is clueless and treats workers horribly. horrible training, horrible attitudes, disfunctional and not worth stress. work keeps increasing but the help is not coming. were worked down to the bone and instead of acknowledgement, were told that tomorrow is going to be harder... much harder.. everyday. Dont go here. trust me..

    Advice to Management

    kill yourselves.

    I worked at Uni-Select part-time

    Pros

    Can't think of any pros unless you're a stockholder. Uni Select shows no appreciation to their customers or employees.

    Cons

    Customers dissatisfied with Uni Select and the employees on the front line hear it daily. No leadership and yearly raises are laughable.

    Advice to Management

    Someone from upper management should make it their business to speak with their customers and their employees to get some advice as to how to run a company.
