Sales Advisor - Full Time (Current Employee) – London – 19 September 2018
overall its a decent place to work no major issues with the company, learned a lot within the parts industry using alternative systems to find correct part numbers for customers management is decent workplace can be a good environment if everyone gets along within the work place (same as any place)
Hard company to work for, they certainly want their pound of flesh.

Well, euros was an experience, the hours are long and if very busy, they go quick, however, get a bad day and management are very very ansty at getting you to hit targets.
Due to the amount of managers in the depots, it quickly becomes too many chiefs and not enough Indians, also its obviously down to what manager you have as to how you find yours, in five or so managers I had at my time there I could only rate two of them in high regard.
pay is good if you get in at the right time or from outside.
long hours, lack of flexibility, lunch breaks are frowned upon.

If you don't mind working long hours in a very sales orientated job, then this is the place to go. A very sales orientated environment. A company that pays well and rewards well for achieving targets. Plenty of areas to progress in too..

Euro Car Parts pay very good money but they want a pound of flesh for it, the working hours are 8 am to 6 pm, so it is a very very long day. Working at the branch i do also requires 1 hour to work and 1 hour to get back home so it is a 12 hour day in the end. You are basically a number when you are here and it feels like no one outside the branch either knows you or cares.

If you want to have depression,long hours,confrontational management,unrealistic targets,made to feel guilty if you take a lunch break,annoy customers through constant phone calls,NOT have a life,then this is the company for you,I can say that their staff turnover is horrendous,To book a holiday...What a joke !!!.....Seriously,don,t care about their staff,all they want is as much money as they can get,alot depends on the Branch Manager at the time,but they change like the weather !! The only plus side was that the salary was reasonable,but not worth all the above mentioned hassle !!!!!
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) – Yorkshire – 3 June 2017
Avoid at all costs, your wages will always be wrong, if they pay you at all.If you take your dinner break you are frowned upon.No relevant training. Unrealistic targets. A very greedy company. They have a very high turnover of staff which is understandable given the lack of training, failure to pay the correct wages often , and a lot less than you are owed. They don't care about their employees, just profit ....and if your face doesn't fit ... you don't stand a chance ... The worst company I have ever worked for.
Sales Advisor (Former Employee) – Barking and Dagenham, Greater London – 23 May 2017
Sorry to say I am one of the souls who worked for this company as a service advisor for a grand total of a month, which felt like a decade. Start at 8am straight to my desk where the moment you sit down your expected not to move until 6 (no breaks from the desk unless you want To be belittled and spoke to like dirt) some customers can be laugh and good people, but majority are rude and obnoxious. You can provide a great service over the phone to a customer then the warehouse/drivers will mess you up (pick wrong part , drop to wrong location) then it's all on your ears over the phone or in your face from management. Very stressful job no training or advice from Management when I say management I mean the guy stressing out all day pacing up down the place, adding pressure on the workers. They pay peanuts and expect you to earn them a ridiculous daily target , DONT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS SLOPPY COMPANY.
Just spent the last 6 months with another branch. Expect to teach Yourself everything as no training will be given. It doesn't matter how well you are doing as you will be expected to do better. The company doesn't care about you , just worried about themselves and there income. You will work 8 till 6 in some cases and be stressed out of your mind and won't have a social life . You will not get any break although you will get 40 mins a day taken off your wage each month. No praise for good work , hassled to cold call if the day isn't hitting target. If you want to be stressed and made to do 150 calls a day and not have a social life then this job is for you. If it's not, avoid like the plague. Worst company I have worked for.
