AP ANALYST (Former Employee) – Irving, TX – August 7, 2018
There were no advancement opportunities. The new system Transcepta was not working well and caused the workload to get far behind.
There seemed to be a quite a bit of turnover.
There is a tremendous receiving problem of new purchases with most all of the branches out in the field. FP has about 300 branches. I worked in AP. We were getting about 30 credit holds a day with no new ordering of products. Management did not care in the least and it was never addressed and not even to this day. It made it impossible to keep the statements clean and current.. Still management did not care and you were expected to do this.. I guess from an act of God. I never got to take breaks or lunches because the workload was SO far behind with so many unpaid accounts. I have been in AP for 30 years and this is the worse company that I have ever worked for... I am very very glad that I was laid off. I was sick every day worrying about going into work and what I would face... AP workers were blamed for messy accounts even though they would never address the receiving issues to pay invoices on time.. Glad I am gone.
Outside Sales Rep (Current Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – June 24, 2018
Everyday has its moments. As being in sales for the company I have a high quota to hit which does make the job stressful. Working with different vendors and customers in the heavy duty part industry at times can be overwhelming. The managers here are awesome. I am so proud to work with them as they treat everyone as equals and that no one is above anybody.
This is a Good Company to work for. Upper Management are very friendly. Co-workers are easy to get along with. Vacations are great. Good benefit package. You work hard, you get noticed. There's still more room to be Better among competitors.

It's a warehouse so mainly it's about picking trailer and truck parts heavy things. Packing it to it's location store for pickup, also supervisors check you daily to see if you are picking everyday at a level.

Great place for a person who into building axles and working with diesel mechanic..I've always had a love for trucks and I grew up in a mechanic household from diesel to auto so working with this company in the axle department was right up my alley and a great opportunity to further my education in the mechanic field.

Warehouse Associate and Driver (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – May 4, 2018
I have a log history of working in warehouses...normally kept neat, clean and organized....unlike Fleetpride's warehouse in St. Louis, Missouri...besides being a very dangerous warehouse to work...with 1000's of pounds of stock (truck brake drums for example) are placed very high on racks....delivery vans and the box truck are normally overloaded with parts....there is no monitoring of weight limits nor proper securement of freight in them either.....I was also held accountable for other co-workers mistakes (filling pick tickets for out going shipments. When I was first hired....I received praise for my work not only from my manager but from my customers on my route (several of whom called into my Fleetpride branch to voice their opinions of me....one them said I was the best they encountered during the 8 years of business with Fleetpride....another customer called in to say... I was very caring and cordial.) I was terminated on 4-24-2018...they claimed their GPS system reported me speeding (50mph in a 30mph zone)... which is not true....I am not that careless. I will miss all the wonderful customers I had on route. I won't miss being held accountable for others mistakes and the dangers of overloads vans/box truck and the dangers within that warehouse itself.
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) – Forest Park, GA – April 6, 2018
The best part of this job was the vending machine. I was laid off and I am very thankful for that. Fleetpride was a great company behind the scenes but the local branch sucked as well as the harassment I received from one of my managers.
Truck Parts was the best place I ever worked. The management team - part of which still works for Fleet Pride - was great. Fellow employees were friendly. My work brought me into contact with many different parts of the company everyday.
