    I worked at Euro Car Parts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Was enjoyable and rewarding when out delivering parts
    bonus scheme for careful driving

    Cons

    Middle Managing
    "Cliquey" feel
    managers had next to no experience
    everyone free to slack off if they were liked by management
    if not you took on their duties
    expected staff to work all hours on a moment's notice

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to train store managers to an acceptable level, these people were just those who had spent 5-10 years in the company and finally got a promotion with no training.

    Advice to Management

    I Dont think they listen to anyones advise. Wasted 4 years of my life for this company.

    Pros

    Cheap car parts thats about it.

    Cons

    A very bady run company who treat employees very badly. People in management positions have no clue on how to manage people & their head office should be based in North Korea. I wouldnt advise anybody to go near this company for employment.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure your depots & get rid of so called managers who are on ego/power trips.

    I worked at Euro Car Parts full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Clean environment to work in, some good people work on the floor in the warehouse, warm place to work, lots of overtime.

    Cons

    No promotion unless you are part of the clique, ageist company, from the outside you would think a good company reality is when you get started not so good at all, expect a lot from you, managers tell you off for just falling short of your kpi. lots of people coming and going all the time, staff retention is awful, you have a 30 minute break which you have to earn by staying over 30 mins at the end of the day. they try to tell you its a great place to work the reality is somewhat different, having worked there for 12 months i for one am glad i got out of there. Much much better places to work.

    Advice to Management

    Senior managers are out of touch with the day to day realities, they just want more and more all the time.
