    Pros

    Pay very good if your good at what you do and hit personal targets for wage increases and commission

    Cons

    Very long hours, any time off is massively frowned upon, lunch breaks by management are grudged to be taken. Mobiles not allowed in office despite customers using them for orders as part of modern day ordering, berated if targets aren't hit like it's all your fault and not anything else reason wise.

    Advice to Management

    Staff turnover is mega high because management have been taught to rule with an iron fist if targets aren't met.

    I worked at Euro Car Parts full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Above average wage for the motor trade. Some excellent members of staff who thrive in the pressure sales environment

    Cons

    The hours are the longest i have experienced in the aftermarket. While the branch manager was very supportive other members of staff were vindictive, arrogant & unsupportive and will take every opportunity for some good old fashioned back stabbing. Once a week there would be a sales 'webinar' dial in session taking place before opening hours, all staff would have to attend and was was not paid OT for, not great for motivation of the sales force. Dinner breaks were extremely short but to be clear, its the motor trade, this unfortunately is the industry norm which results in burn out of even the most hardy members of staff. At the time i worked there, the point of sale and cataloguing system was not as slick or user friendly as competitors, the parts ordering system was woefully archaic and baffling. The regional manager would spend his time between playing on his mobile phone and demanding more sales, he was an imbecile.

    Advice to Management

    Be a trend setter, look to rotate staff start and finish times for staff so they might have a better quality of life outside work.

    I worked at Euro Car Parts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The people you meet nothing else

    Cons

    working 50+ hours a week across 6 days with only Sunday off. Management think they are god and untouchable Can't take breaks Some staff better paid than others for the same job. Can't leave early if incident has happened or if you do you are punished for it. Can't book time off

    Advice to Management

    Look at your companys hard working staff in all the stores warehouses etc, without them you wouldn't have a company. Do it fast before its too late.
