    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.

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

    Pros

    Good Money. Great opportunities to progress very quickly.

    Cons

    Very long hours 50-60, and weekends. Very little time to spend with family. It burns you out and they expect everything you have, blood, sweat and tears. Very little training. Toxic working environment due to lack of clear hierarchy structure - too much gossip and bullying. People way too far above their stations!
