Yard Agent (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – July 17, 2017
While I learned several things here it was overall a very bad experience. The working conditions were horrible, the management and supervisors were knowledgeable in the field but horrible when dealing with employees. The pay also felt like it did not reflect the level of physical work required given the environment of the yard and how much work may be required at a given time. I also suppose the benefits may be considered great once you are employed long term but I did not get to experience them.
Working conditions, Management, people skills, pay rate
If you are working inside, it is STRESSFUL, with unreasonable deadlines. Yard manager talks about employees to other employees, personal business, life matters. They have a tendency to drive out the employees that are willing to go the extra mile, every 2 years, they seem to have a hire/fire spree. And NOBODY is free from the chopping block.
okay pay if inside, food catered often
not family friendly, ridiculous expectations, manager plays favorites..

Not really like working in the conditions, heat, humidity, snow, sleet, rain. The one big issue is the breathing in all the dust that is there benefits are horrible and they dont have a bereavement policy, sad!!!!!.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – June 30, 2017
I enjoyed this job and liked going to work everyday. Fast paced environment, great customers, great benefits....very team like atmosphere. High stress, lots of pressure.....time limits are very prevalent. They are moving too much in the direction of corporate minded politics, but you can see the attempt is made to connect with the employees.
Pay, teamwork, fun
Very stressful, not very caring regarding personallife issues
Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 29, 2017
Company is capable of accomplishing much more than it does, but the people they put in leadership positions are often grossly unprepared to lead effectively. Too much unprofessionalism and lack of maturity exhibited by leadership. This hinders the ability of the office to rise to the performance and profit level it's capable of rising to. Friendships often determine who is promoted or not promoted and who is disciplined or not disciplined. This results in blatant unfairness and also partiality towards certain employees.
Casual dress, work-life balance
Lack of maturity and professionalism among leadership, promotions seemed to be based on friendships, low wages
Vehicle purchasing support agent (Current Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – June 21, 2017
This job requires multitasking, responding to emails and phone calls. Good communication skills, typing skills and bilingual employees. It was a very productive and fun work place everyone was friendly and understanding to one another, i would definitely recommend this job to a friend and or family member.
Receiver (Former Employee) – White Plains, MD – June 20, 2017
I grew a lot working at Copart, the work was always ready and as a team we grew to impress each other with how we handled it day in and day out, the management laid out the task in an easy going way and we got it done or game planned further. The easiest part of the job was getting to drive the cars a little, the hardest part would be the unpredictable work load.
Yard Agent, Veh Preper,veh receiver (Former Employee) – San diego ca – June 12, 2017
This company promises soo much to their employees! They suck everything youve got. You learn many different positions while being at copart. They move you where ever they feel like it throughout the yard. They expect alot to get done! I felt i was just a number to them while i worked here. A lot of people complained but nothing got done! A lot of people come and go as they felt unfair treatment!
Working with fun people/coworkers.
Health benifits suck, Pay is too little for all the Stress!
Title Clerk (Current Employee) – Brighton, CO – May 18, 2017
I have worked for Copart for 3 years. Enjoyed my job and the people that I worked with until earlier this year. The "new" management at this yard is horrible. They are forcing their employee's to work 7-7, 7 days a week for a CAT (8 weeks, probably more). You better have a better reason then your children to get an exception to not work those hours, or you will be put on suspension and forced out. The company states all of the time how "family oriented" they are, wrong! STAY AWAY if you have a family!
Save the company money and they still twist your words to fit there narrative. Forget the big family stuff. Others say the yards are tough but corp hr is worse. Advise, keep looking. Get on some peoples radar because of there actions and watch out.
Salary freedom to get results.
Some people do bad investigations and have poor reading comprehension.
title clerk (Current Employee) – Brighton, CO – May 12, 2017
They present themselves as a family oriented business, this couldn't be further from the truth. Extremely long work hours that do not meet the necessary compensation for the work load. Management has unachievable expectations and shows appreciation by lacking the recognition of the work completed by their employees. The employees deserve better than what Copart is providing.
Bilingual Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Eldridge, IA – April 23, 2017
Started at 8am, logged on to computer took calls about 70 a day. I learned about varies car titles and different requirements needed for different countries. Management was available when needed. The co-workers made the workplace environment great. The hardest part of the job was assisting irate callers on various issues. The most enjoyable part of the job was being able to hear in callers voice sigh of relief.
