Inventory Specialist (Former Employee) – North Salt Lake, UT – August 11, 2018
I enjoy Copart it’s a fix fast paced environment where working seamlessly with others is a must. I learned new skills to add tony abilities far as employment goes. The difficult part was working outside in the heat all day and the tack that there wasn’t much advancement opportunities.
yard (Former Employee) – Lebanon, TN – September 18, 2018
Management is the absolute worst at this yard. They don't stand behind anything they say. They allow unethical behavior to happen in the workplace.They just care about hiding things so it looks like it is the best yard to higher management. They don't help when things get behind. They have let their position get to their heads. Very lazy. If something (problem) is brought to them, they throw it off on someone else and say they will take care of it, but never do. They know about employees who do not work or cuts major corners in their work, but do absolutely nothing about it. They allow lazy employees to take long breaks and not work. While yelling at the ones who work hard to work harder. Do not work here, unless you like stress, doing the work your co worker is supposed to do. It only got worse as the days went by. This yard needs a major overhaul with management. This job would have been better if management actually did their jobs and be leaders. Get managers who have some schooling and knowledge of management.
The pay is very low for the area and for all you do. Working all types of weather isn't worth the pay either.
This company puts tow truck drivers before yard employees.
only positives was free lunches here and there and getting overtime.
other yards are the same as this one. some worse and some better
AGM (Former Employee) – Loganville, GA – August 23, 2018
Copart is not the place to work unless you want to fight for your job. If you are not a yes man upper management will find a way to get you gone. My day started at 6:30am and didn’t leave till after 5:30 pm everyday and your lucky if you get a 30 minute lunch. The pay at Copart is no where near what it should be, they say they pay industry standards but a loader operator only making $13.69 hr is not standard.
It’s a pay check
Pay, time away from family. Upper management sucks. They want you to do their job and make them look good
CSR - Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Seaford, DE – July 18, 2018
Depending on where you work, your day can vary. Inside, we try to focus on calling on cars. However, you are also expected to answer phones, and take payments. You are expected to give customer service and process the phones/people to move on to the next. This is stressful to some people, because it is similar to a call center and convenient store. You need to be able to focus. Outside, receivers clean cars, image them and provide services for the seller. Unlike the inside, the cars come in randomly through out the day. All the cars need to be received by days end. Loaders, the machines, are expected to move cars from where they are dropped, to be received, to be stored, to be sold, and then loaded out to transporters. This pattern repeats all day.
Worrying about yourself and not others is important. Every yard I've worked at, you can still have fun, but you need to focus on producing your numbers. That is probably the hardest part of the job is that there is always work that needs to be done. Multitasking is important inside, and working diligently is important outside.
I enjoyed the people I worked with both at the office and customers we dealt with. It is a wide gambit of people all from different backgrounds.
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Riverview, FL – July 9, 2018
I loved working here. It was fast-paced and very goal oriented regarding "yard" stats. The management was very open to you for questions, and they recognized the hard work and stress of meeting stats with rewarding lunches and other incentives.
Does not have many opportunities for on-site advancement.
Open office that promoted teamwork, open door policy, flexibility
Pay, low raise cap, management does not communicate well, lack of advancement opportunites
Yard Supervisor (Former Employee) – Washington State – June 27, 2018
The Company has high standards and exerts high pressure from the top down to meet those standards across the board at every location. This is a very positive motivator to maintain standards, performance and consistency.
Excellent stock purchase program, Generally 8 to 5 Monday to Friday, Opportunities to Travel, Never a dull moment, Meet a wide variety of people
Compensation, Advancement usually requires several relocation, Extreme weather
I didn't mind the hours but there were some employees including myself who were treated unfairly and management didnt seem to care. I liked the money I was making but I couldn't stand the treatment any longer.
Copart was a productive and enjoyable place to work
Customer service Rep (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – June 23, 2018
I loved working at Copart. I am not sure what the workplace culture is at this point. No one I worked with, including the manager, is currently working with the company. I do not have any current information about the company.
