The right team is what makes the day
Assistant Manager in 2016 (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLFebruary 22, 2018
A typical work day here is filled with customer interactions both on the phone and in person.
What I have learned here was attention to detail between customer, learned how to interact with customers to get them what they needed or complained about and helped fix the situation.
Management is ok, Improvement on training others to get where they want their team members to be is needed for such a busy store.
Workplace culture is great as far as the benefits they give out to their team members.
Hardest Part of the Job was trying to please upper Management in the departments.
Most enjoyable part of the day was interacting with other team members and customers who enjoyed our upbeat tempo.
Pros
Great benefits in parts if needed
Cons
Not a place for long term planning

in need of improvment
Parts Salesman (Former Employee) –  Santa Fe, NMFebruary 22, 2018
i would say the stores i have experienced are in need of management upscale, could be very great if management cared equally about employee as much as the cared about product movement.

Quick-Paced bu Relaxed
Parts Delivery Specialist (Former Employee) –  Spring, TXFebruary 22, 2018
There was always something to do at O'Reilly. As a parts delivery specialist, when I was not on a run, I was involved with stocking parts in the back of the store. My Coworkers were easy-going, but productive. It was an all around fun atmosphere.
Pros
Fun coworkers, relaxed atmosphere
Cons
Fast paced, not always enough time for a break

Awesome place to work and will take you as far as you want to go.
Retail Service Specialist (Current Employee) –  2098 Lubbock, TXFebruary 21, 2018
I sold parts on both the retail and commercial side of the business. As long as you are taking care of customers well, you will have a job. Some parts of management are better than others but over all they will do what they can for you. work place culture is all about team work. The hardest part of the job is dealing with people that refuse to be satisfied, like the ones who are going to be angry no matter what.
But by far the most enjoyable part is dealing with your regular and ussually comercial customers and helping people with their issues.
Pros
Not a desk job
Cons
Somewhat stressful at times

Wasn't worth the time
Parts Salesman (Former Employee) –  Columbia, SCFebruary 21, 2018
During my time working there we had 4-5 different managers. Work wasn't fast or stressful, it mainly came from the manager. Pressured on doing work that wasn't ours to do. One main focus for the job was customer support and making sure they were satisfied the first time. Had inside company competitions for gift cards for certain sales.
Pros
hour lunchs
Cons
Pay isn't worth work

Awful place to work

None!

Good job But...
Driver/Stocker (Current Employee) –  Burlington, NCFebruary 19, 2018
The job is ok but other companys with the same type of job offer more on pay. The hours are bad for me because I get off so late in the day and work weekends. The people I work with are good to work with.
Pros
Out of store meeting new people, making connections.
Cons
Afternoon hours, late getting off.Weekends.

Parts Specialist and Installer (Former Employee) –  Franklin Park, ILFebruary 17, 2018
Sat inside a heated environment at a desk, waiting for customers to walk in. Never got too busy, but i wasnt bothered considering I was hourly. Got along with customers pretty well and became social with them and established good rapport.

Fast-paced retail sales combined with regional warehouse/distribution center
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZFebruary 17, 2018
Fast-paced environment at this location. Customers usually lined up waiting for doors to open. High-volume customer base with heavy customer service needs. Ability for unlimited commissions based on add-ons and up-sales. On-going educational opportunities via weekly on-line training modules. Good arena for honing multi-tasking skills. Store management approachable and skilled at delegating and designating job requirements and responsibilities. Team members worked well together, for the most part, and were willing to assist one another as needed. An updated computer system would be an asset allowing for easier access to customers' prior sales records when dealing with returns and warranties. Interacting with large numbers of customers makes the day enjoyable, but also makes the day seem to pass all too quickly at times.
