This is an awful company run by awful Executive Staff.
Manager (Former Employee) – West Coast. – August 4, 2013
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 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.
It was a great work place and had great co workers just the management wasn't as organized as it should of been. I learned how to be fast and proficient at what I do and accurately. and I just pretty much got cars ready for auction.
General Manger (Former Employee) – Brighton, CO – March 26, 2015
Overall I enjoyed my career at Copart very much. They ask a lot of General Manager at large operations, and the pressure s very intense. Balance between work and home are very difficult to find. There have been multiple times during my career that I worked for months straight without days off. As a salary employee, no matter the pay at some point it just isn't worth the stress. There is intense pressure put on the employees at the yard level to meet and exceed operation SOPs put in place by the sales or corporate teams, but all too often the man power and resources to efficiently make these changes never are factored into the plans. It is left to the yard operations to seek out solutions on their own, and adjust on the fly. Sometimes this is great and leads to new and more efficient ways to accomplish these tasks, but all too often, I saw employees becoming more and more disengaged by the constantly changing expectations of their own jobs.
short sighted managment, no work life balance, very stressful
Sales Agent, Vehicle Purchasing Agent (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 19, 2015
Great company first and foremost, just absolutely no job security and a lot of horseplay, which I come to work to work. Also there was no opportunity for advancement. Busy call center, trained new hires, not a hard job at all. Just the hours Monday thru Saturday , no overtime but I sometimes would work 50 hours back to back weeks. I love staying busy and working for customers and helping those in need. I loved copart but it was no opportunity to advance.

- a typical day at work would be to handle a high call volume. - emailing or mailing out forms for duplicate title - most enjoyable part of working at copart would be the comfortable environment made for the workers by management.
