    I have been working at Euro Car Parts full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Career progression. Good basis. Great bonus potential. Passionate staff. Market leader. I've seen a couple of negative reviews which make me laugh. When does someone ever fail with a company because they are work shy and say something positive. Go work for GSF if you want an easy life with no prospects!

    Cons

    Long hours. Demanding targets. Weekends

    I have been working at Euro Car Parts

    Pros

    I was approached by a member of the internal recruitment team who asked if they could have some time to discuss the company and the role over the phone. I was provided with an excellent insight to the company, the opportunity and also career progression within this forward thinking organisation. After this is discussed my experiences and how these would transfer to the position. After a very forthcoming conversation I was then provided with further information from the Recruiter and a confirmation of my interview. The interview process itself was very informative and provided me with a good insight into the ethos of Euro Car Parts and I felt very settled and informed. The recruiter contacted me the day after and offered me the position and I accepted. I have been working for ECP for 6 months now and I thoroughly enjoying every aspect of the job. The process from start to finish was very professional and I wish I had made the move sooner

    Cons

    Wished I had joined sooner when I was first approached whilst working for the competition
