Good and knowledgable people at the branch level. Overall good people to work with.
Warehouse and Operations Manager (Former Employee), Willowbrook, ILApril 2, 2015
Pros: Good benefits
Cons: A totally manual environment as far as inventory control is concerned.
Even after 18 years with the company I was learning something everyday. The Director at the DC I was in was excellent. The most enjoyable part was meeting co workers from around the country. Either in person or over the phone. These grew into to personal relationships over the years.

Not where to work
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Bolingbrook, ILMarch 31, 2015
Horrible company to work for! Management is the worst I have ever seen at any other company. The people running the warehouse don't know how to hire people or run a business.

RUN AWAY!!!!! Consider yourself warned HIGH TURNOVER
Warehouse, sales clerk (Former Employee), WaterburyFebruary 18, 2015
Wow I got the boot from FleetPride.. My boss in Waterbury Ct said its not working out. I asked why and he told me that it was his mistake and not mine. I said what do you mean? Can you be more specific? You cant see or hear well and are having trouble remembering all this information. He then stated "I didnt know I was hiring someone with disabilities". My training period was 4 weeks, it what I was given to learn the counter and the 9 million+ parts they sell {learn as you go}. They even changed computer and software and the program I was using during this time {the 3rd week}. My boss said, we're sorry we dont have more time or people to train you and for "throwing you to the wolves" {he was short 3 people when he hired me}. I tried my best to learn the job as I went. Now I know why nobody else {making less} in the place, wanted the job {the guys also told me this about the job when I asked why they didnt take it and the reason for the high turnover rate for the that job}.. I also worked 8 weeks in the warehouse {also without any formal training}. I would say the hardest part of the job tho was pricing. There was a sliding scale of pricing {1-4} for "customers we liked", we could simply set the scale by overriding with a code/window given to use by the boss or leadman. My problem was not knowing who gets charge this special pricing and who doesnt. Its why nothing in the store was marked with prices. It also became harder to do, as the code in the comp didnt always match what was on the product. The leadman working with me at the front desk also went on to tell me how FleetPride – more... steals and misleads buyers that buy bendix air brake governors. I asked how, and he said that they do not rebuild the ones that are marked rebuilt and the new ones are the exact same {and are made in the same factory} just colored blue. Its why there is no core charge on them. He threatened me and said if I ever told, 150 motorcycle riders would show up at my house. It was hard sometimes dealing with customers that were promised parts that were not avail. tho the computer said they were when you would order them.. The warehouse inventory NEVER matched what the comp stated was in stock. They would just match the inventory to what the comp said as you went along and then notify the boss with a bogus invoice that he would later void if it didnt match what was there. He also did this with time cards as well, where many employees would show up late MOST of the time. No discipline was ever given {prolly why the problem existed}. I was late once due to in-climate weather. Once when I was being disciplined, my wife called {wondering where I was} and the boss put my wife {and who ever else was on the line} on speaker phone conference. She was able to hear the conversation, along with all the employees that worked there.. The boss would trade off going to the bank and the guy would leave at 2:30 and not return for the rest of the day or drivers would stay until the hours for that day were obtained. They should also be aware of how the area salesman talk to and related to the customers and record some of these conversations going on there. Its totally unnecessary and is very poor judgement being a representative of the company. I hope whom ever reads this passes it on {to someone that can make a difference}, as it can only make a better place to work for the next guy or improve the conditions there now. Take a little time to show the new person how to do it and have some patience, as there is a LOT to absorb in 4 weeks I had. The guy I worked with had serious anger issues and I was tired of the raging, throwing stuff, and lack of getting help/assistance from him when needed {so did the customers}. I also knew it wouldnt last, as I was never given a proper ID for the job I was hired to do. I always logged in and used someone elses ID. I did like the warehouse job and wished I could have kept it. I hope the guy who has it, is doing well. I would never buy anything from them now knowing what I do. I will be sending a copy of this to upper management as well. Its not just wrong what they did, its illegal. – less

Awesome place to work for but demanding.
Warehouse/Driver (Former Employee), Frederick MdJanuary 5, 2015
Pros: awesome people and atmosphere, great products, fair prices, health care, retirement, opportunities.
Cons: sometimes extremely fast paced and had to roll and lift 55 gallon drums sometimes by myself.
Great opportunities to advance. Always on the go and always something to do loved the people i worked for. Came in inspected vehicle loaded up by order then drove out for deliveries. The shop and the costumers where like family. I read above that a person said no advancement for black people. I find that hilarious because at my store the store manager was a black man. He was awesome to work for. So was everyone in the store. I miss working with those guys i also miss the benefits and retirement package but i make more money now so its good to go. This company is a good company honest business they work with the costumers they will find what you need to the best their ability. They take care of there employees and they do things the right way. I would work for them again any day. If they did more then just heavy trucks and trailers id go to them for my cars maintenance.

Counter sales (Current Employee), ..January 3, 2015
Their is no training here at all .As an inside sales person you are expected to do your job-and input all the data from outside sales people too-and if you dare say anything or speak up about it just becomes worse. Do not go to work for Fleetpride. You can do better.

A Culture of Arrogance and Entitlement
Ex Employee (Former Employee), TesxasJune 14, 2014
Pros: pay check
Cons: terrible management, no employee focus, no customer focus
As a long term previous employee at an executive level I will tell you this once great company has become a terrible place for people to work. The arrogance of the new management is beyond description. Just look at the turnover since they acquired the company. To work here you will have to be very desperate!

horrible place to work
Packaging Manager (Former Employee), Grapevine, TXDecember 23, 2013
Cons: no job security
Worked hard for 9 years and was fired for complaining about a new HR person who had only been with fleetpride for a couple of weeks. After TPG Group acquired fleetpride they brought in their own management this meant people who had given 20+years of service all lost their jobs.
