There is plenty of no stop work, job security due to vehicle are always in accidents/disasters. Sometimes its overwhelming, the work load. Work life balance is difficult due to the work load, its Coparts policy the work load gets finished by the end of the day. We work ALOT of overtime which is good for the wallet, but not good for life balance.
Office Manager (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – September 18, 2017
Started when I turned 18, worked my way up. Traveled for the company, met many awesome managers. The work is hard, and stressful, but what job isn't? ABility to move up is always there, even with no college background as long as you hit the ground running and have the mindset to outshine everyone else. Great place to work.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 11, 2017
I was only there 7 months because I was laid off. I enjoyed the job and they had just recently added a commission for units sold. The company at the time owned 80% of the land for their salvage yards and seemed to be run very efficiently. I liked it, but was disappointed I had to go. They did have a Copart Day at Six Flags complete with a catered bar-b-q meal for all Dallas employees. All expenses were paid including the meal and entry.
Front Desk Agent (Former Employee) – Dunn, NC – September 6, 2017
A typical day at work was busy & I learned the title work. The management was great. The most enjoyable part of the job was team work. The hardest part of the job was reaching our phone calling goals daily.
Dispatcher (Former Employee) – Eldridge, IA – September 3, 2017
Unorganized company with less than skillful management. Poor employee relations. Company only cares about itself. Very stressful work environment. Upper management doesn't know what's going on at individual locations.
Yard Supervisor (Former Employee) – Cudahy, WI – September 1, 2017
Too much of "it's always the way we've done it" thinking. They do not like change at all and do everything on paper. While the competition is moving forward with new and innovative ways to do business, they are just sitting idly by
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Baton Rouge, LA – August 24, 2017
yard 50 was very racist to the employees . laid off all the African American employees and all of the ones laid off started way before other people. your only hired is you friends with management there.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Ham Lake, MN – August 23, 2017
overall copart was a decent place to work good hours reasonable pay for expect actions and ability to climb the ladder. office manager picks and chooses her favorite employee not wanting to answer questions or help others. giving attitude to some.
DMV Title Clerk (Former Employee) – Vallejo, CA – August 9, 2017
Unfortunately the management was misleading and contradicted themselves. They would tell you that your doing a good job and give you pointers on how to move up in the company but yet say your not friendly enough because you followed their pointers. They threatened you that you were at your max pay and wouldn't be able to give you a raise or a different position for your skill set. They would rather spend the money to train new hires than acknowledge their dedicated, long time employee.
Purchasing Agent (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – August 9, 2017
Great management teams, the always make sure to work with you and guide you through learning process.Work environment is very fast paste and at time can be stressful but thats the best way you can learn something in life.
A typical day at work is extremely demanding and stressful, in that there are constant interruptions from dealing with upset customers to employees needing assistance with problems, issues and complaints. Not enough managers making themselves readily available, but instead handing off the problems to supervisors. Lack of integrity from Managers showing a lack of leadership of skill with people and their employees by laughing and making cutting personal remarks, on floor. Lack of appreciation to their committed employees, The hardest part was seeing lack of respect to hardworking employees and seeing employees work in fear of losing their job.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – August 4, 2017
I was fired for something that was not my fault it was wrong to fire me and I could prove it and so could all my good friends that got fired the same way I did. when I claimed unemployment they had no comment they would not even respond to the unemployment office. considering the 11 years worked at Copart from vb2 to Katrina and even England I am sad that they let not only me but a lot of other good people be lost to the culture they hired from other companies when they should have hired from with in and stuck to the principles that the company was built from the shop broom up. on a good note, I learned a lot of good skills and experience I am thankful for that and all the good times
Dispatcher/Customer Service (Former Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – August 3, 2017
Overall this is a great company that care about there employees. But i found that management at different locations had a big effect on productivity. The basic are not followed at all locations including safety violations. This is something i had a problem with and felt bad about correcting when i know management knew better.
Great staff. Great pay. off on weekends family functions
Need to follow all safety rules at every location.
