The training lasts about 1 day, I was there for 3 years not one raise. Big company with family feel. Its all about who you know to move up in company. If you don't have family in the company, you will go nowhere
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – North Attleboro, MA – February 10, 2019
Love my job, love fast paced atmosphere. Need more help. It's hard to keep the customers happy when I dont have enough staff. A lot of negative attitudes. The warehouse supervisor is very helpful & good attitude. Love going to work. Always multi tasking with multiple tasks. Wished we could get overtime.
Installer Sales Representative (Former Employee) – Madison, WI – January 23, 2019
If you don't have any thing nice to say don't say anything at all. I hated everything about the job and company. That job is so completely life sucking I never felt I could relax even on weekends. In 2 years I had in excess of 6,000 emails and I deleted alot of them, that's ridiculous.
DELIVERY DRIVER/WAREHOUSE (Former Employee) – Clive, IA – January 22, 2019
This company is similar to Napa, O'rielly, and the other auto retail parts stores. Except it's wholesale only to dealers and service shops. Management was more concerned about their personal bonuses than employees.
Picker/Packer/Stocker (Former Employee) – Branford, CT – December 4, 2018
Well balanced job but poor management and poor pay for the work that has to be done in a amount of time. Some days were worse then others I always stayed late to finish while everyone left then would get yelled at for overtime . the work wasn't so hard but wasn't easy . other than that it was a good job full time to have .

Location Manager (Former Employee) – Sierra Vista, AZ – November 5, 2018
Very good experience, not able to enjoy for long time but if given the the chance I wiould try it again. It appears most employees are considered good because most of the managers have been working for the company more than 10 years and to me that speaks well.
Sales Representative (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – September 5, 2018
the company itself is very good to work. The changes and the direction the company is going is positive, The Changes being made in St. louis Market are concerning with a newer management staff they have some things to work out and they will. The company is also very laid back and scheduling is awesome. The bad is simply no urgency or response when a question is asked. the answer is always "let me look into it." and then when you follow up there is now response.
Order Picker (Former Employee) – Aurora, CO – August 21, 2018
The job, even though temporary, was really good. It was easy work, but never was there down time. Even if there was you were always busy. The managers and your coworkers are all awesome and relaxed people.
Parts Driver (Current Employee) – Riverside, CA – July 18, 2018
Job is not your typical desk job, it's nice to be able to drive the company car to different locations to drop off parts. Makes day go by faster. Warehouse is of course hot and stuffy in summer and cold in winter. Good manager.
Working in heat, wearing uncomfortable steel toed shoes
Factory was a good place for the years I worked there!!
Account Manager-Independent Service Channel (Former Employee) – Rocklin, CA – July 9, 2018
Factory Motor Parts was fun at times. Lack of product at the right locations, inventory problems was frustrating. Typical work day: Made about 10-13 calls per day on accounts selling and servicing accounts. Usually ended my day at the warehouse dropping off checks and returns. Management did not get involved too much . I learned from my accounts by calling on them weekly as to what there needs were . The hardest part of the job was lack of support from co workers and inventory. The most enjoyable art of the job was helping my accounts with their needs and developing relationships!!
