    I worked at Euro Car Parts full-time for 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.

    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.

    Advice to Management

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