    I have been working at Euro Car Parts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Firstly, I believe a lot of the negative reviews are from branch network/driver staff and cannot verify these. My experience is from working at the Tamworth HO, and before I wave of thumbs down, I have not been asked to write, nor do I work for their HR Having been in my previous position within finance for 8 years, I was apprehensive at first, story's of overworked/underpaid, no rewards. It is busy, you will need to work hard & be good at what you do, & wont be for everyone. But, if you have come from a similar fast paced environment, can make an impact then results are definitely rewarded. Progression - previous non-ECP role was relatively static. Here, I experienced progression in first 18 months with discussions of further movement in the near future. To have the ability to play an active part in changing and influencing a company of this size is not something readily available, or that I have been part of previously If you are into your cars [as I am] then the staff discounts are also great. [Much to the annoyance of my wife!]

    Cons

    Not cons, more considerations: Busy, high transactional volume & fast paced. A real need to be able to keep numerous plates spinning at the same time

    I have been working at Euro Car Parts full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay structure. Excellent bonuses with lots of incentives. Have been with the company a year and already progressing towards a management plan. Great team and supportive manager. ECP listens and cares - already they are making big changes to improve the hours for Sales Advisors.

    Cons

    Customers can be challenging - but you take the rough with the smooth. Wont suit everyone - if you're not inspired to work in a fast paced environment then this isnt for you. The weak are quickly exposed

    I have been working at Euro Car Parts full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    A driven and focussed company to work for, having worked in a few branches now in sales and operations roles I have progressed my career within ECP thanks to the great people and determination of the management teams. Sukhpal is a real inspiration and has a legacy of strong directors and managers who push the business forward. If you want the ability to progress your career, stand out of the crowd and be recognised for your hard work then Euro's is the place for you!

    Cons

    Unapologetically fast paced, if you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen.
