Reciever (Former Employee), Orlando, FL – June 17, 2014
Pros: coworkers friendly, compensation was good
Cons: hard worker in gravel pit.
Copart was also a good place to work. Their management though didn't mingle much with subordinates Work/home balance was fair. Online auction business so not much room for growth. Overall I would and have attempted to become a member of their team.

IT Developer (Former Employee), Dallas, TX – March 26, 2014
Pros: some outings, good healthcare
Cons: crazy schedule, no structure, completely dysfunctional
I sure am glad to be out of this company. Their IT department is completely dysfunctional, with most employees overworked. Be prepared to work 60 hours plus every week as well as most weekends. No wonder they don't want to hire consultants. No structure and no protocols. Responsibilities will be dumped on you completely different from what is in the – more... role description, and what was discussed during the interview. No priorities exist at any levels. Managers and Execs are busy with their own agenda. You are expected to know it all with no communication flow. Think twice and more before you look at a position here. – less
DISPATCHER (Former Employee), Martinez, Ca – March 23, 2014
Pros: great staff and gm
Cons: office manager from hell who belittles her staff
The yard I was at had a great office and yard staff, even a great GM, but there's always one person who ruins it for the company. They have an office manager from Hell who is very unprofessional and has no respect for anyone. I am surprised this yard has not seen lawsuits due to her behavior. I worked here for about a month and a half and walked out – more... on these people. I've worked with a big Corp. before them and know that they don't treat their employees as assets, our maybe it is just her. Steer clear of this place unless you're desperate. – less
Office Manager (Former Employee), Brookhaven, NY – August 29, 2013
Pros: the bond you create with staff members
Cons: always watch your back
Everyone is over worked and under paid. They do not care if you have a family, or are a care taker. Hurricane Sandy hit CAT teams came in along with many many other managers. No one listened to the team from the home yard, never bothered to give us a chance, constantly pitted management against one another. Money came up missing constantly, the Regional – more... Manager allowed outside management to take over they were at times direspectful, dramatic, liars, never had respect for us we never had a chance. The CAT teams worked long hours as well, but they were catered too. Laundry was done for them, house cleaning was taken care of, transportation and at times meals. Our lives never stopped after 12-18 hour days we still had our personal lives to take care of. We still had laundry homework children baths meals house cleaning doctors appointments our lives couldnt stop. We lost amazing staff and management we were told when the hurricane hit most of you may not be here anymore after this. We were exhausted upper management defended you to a point they were under such a microscope it was like walking on eggshells constantly. The Regional Manager allowed us to fail allowed the chaos because she was trying to reach company goals but forgot about the people who mattered. I respected this woman in every way she started as a receptionist and worked her way up to a Regional Manager but along the way she lost site of what was important. Understand I wittnessed your peers and superiors disrespect you and dismiss you and your thoughts/ideas many times. You work hard but at what cost because in the end they did what they wanted. How much of your life have you lost because of your selfish dedication to people who laugh behind your back. Your chasing a dream your fooling yourself they will never ever respect you. Vividly i can recall the rolling of the eyes the hand gestures behind your back the laughing but yet you still fight the question is for who? I cant respect that and I can no longer respect you. Thank you for letting us fail. I guess I should congratulate you on getting your yard back...really after all you have done or not think about that! Copart is so far in your head you dont even know it or refuse to see it. – less
This is an awful company run by awful Executive Staff.
Manager (Former Employee), West Coast. – August 4, 2013
Pros: co workers were always awesome
Cons: regional pus filled managers, everything else.
All this company is about is selling junk cars to the highest bidder.
Should be so simple, yet while us grunts slave it out at the yards, the executive staff live in environmentally controlled luxurious offices. And I know this as they gave the tour at the Fairfield California offices. These same scum have use of a private jet while customer service – more... and yard staff are paid peanuts.
Training seemed straightforward by a competent staff, thus goes the good thing about Copart.
They showed us some videos of company rallies and it was chillingly like a Brown Shirt rally the way they worshiped the company founder Johnson. he's a car salesman folks, get over it.
Yes, I took this job until something better for me came up, but it bothered me seeing so many people subjected to overwork, under-staffing conditions, and the occasional berating by the regional manager.
Did I mention this is nothing more than selling junk cars?
Stay away from this hell hole. You'd feel better about yourself pole dancing. – less
Loader Operator (Former Employee), Billerica MA – July 29, 2013
Day with management that did not care about the way the outside manager talked to employees under him everyday constant abuse. Even after failing so many audits they still keep the yard manager outside leaving whenever he pleases and doing nothing all day
Sells Accounting And Receiving (Current Employee), Fairfield, CA – June 9, 2013
I come intpo work, and handle Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) payyments. Once i have finished with processing the EDI payments, I go ahead and focus my time on my collections, and taking care of any emails, and customer services calls. I have experiene working here, the management as well as the co-workers have been more then friendly, and willing – more... to help one another. As for the hard part of the job, well that would have to be the numbers. just the slightest number that is off can make a big difference wetween $100 and $1000. I would have to say that overall, it is a good work inviorment, and enjoyable place to work. – less
Copart is a great company to work for. The management in our office makes you feel like you belong instead of just another number in the office. The work for me is for the most part stress free. My coworkers are very nice people. I love the fact most of my coworkers leave the home problems at home instead of bring it to work. the only thing i would – more... change is the pay. it's a little low for what we do. All in all it's a great company. – less
