Avoid at all cost
driver (Former Employee) –  launceston3 January 2018
a very clicky place to work if your new, lots a backstabbing from other members of staff with a blame culture that is through the roof.
Management/office staff only care about one thing - Targets !!!!
Dont expect to get your 40min lunch break,as there is never enough vans/drivers and your also expected to wash your van during this time. Although management would never admit to expecting you to do so.
Overtime is unpaid and expect to give up a few hours a week of your own time, also there is no sick pay !!!
Asking for a day off/holiday entitlement is a joke and your requests just get ignored.
I wouldnt set foot in that place if you paid me double
Pros
cheap car parts
Cons
Long hours, minimum wage, blame culture, no overtime/sick pay

Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Bangor2 January 2018
The discount is only the good thing you get while working here. They expect you to work 10 hours a day with no brake, not being paid properly and just expect you to shut up about it. Awful place to work
Pros
Discount
Cons
Long hours, low pay

Minimum wage and working through your breaks, management don’t give a toss about you and impossible targets. Only advantage is cheap parts and meeting garages

Internal politics took their toll

Sales Advisor (Former Employee) –  Bridgwater, Somerset10 September 2017
Learned many new skills. Company pays well if can negotiate the salary. I was not a fan of the super long hours.

Day to day new offers to shout about and sell, sell, sell. If you can't sell you are on ''the exit'' list. Too much pressure for the type of business.
Pros
Money
Cons
Everything else

Sales Advisor (Current Employee) –  Birmingham, West Midlands5 September 2017
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.
Pros
n/a
Cons
long working hours

productive and hard experience of job but its fun
Asistant (Former Employee) –  Tamworth, Staffordshire15 August 2017
learn new things and make new friends. management is good and respect to every culture.sometimes job hard and sometimes not to hard.sometimes doing hygiene is enjoyable part of job.sometimes we are told to work everywhere .we are forced to work otherwise we have to face disciplinary action .we have to work compulsory in the bank holidays and our holidays are allocated that we can't choose. Every one work in a fixed place except the pickers .they have to work everywhere.Canteen is not good it is small and less toilets . The security persons are co-operative .There is no enough parking in this warehouse.The manages are no co-operative they don't care about the workers and the super visor are also not good .They are not helpful ,if we have problem they point to each other,They don't try to sort out on time.The salary is not good they pay minimum rate and they don't pay shift allowance and bonus etc.

Don,t go there
Sales Advisor - Full Time (Former Employee) –  Cornwall11 August 2017
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 !!!!!

Designer (Former Employee) –  Wembley, Greater London2 August 2017
The company is reactive but I think they should be proactive, very very unorganised. Euro Car Parts has no career progression or wage review, you are stuck with what get when you start.
Pros
free fruit
Cons
long hours culture

Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Eastbourne, East Sussex14 July 2017
working here caused anxiety and depression. The manager is sexist and palms all blame onto staff, doesn't take any responsibility. the warehouse manager however was brilliant and supportive.
salary is terrible for the amount of work and hours. The company offers no compromise and doesn't follow rules and regulations. Not a lot of opportunity for progress, expectations are high and its more than a high pressure environment. I know that almost ALL employees, including management from the branch I worked at are looking for new jobs.
Pros
sundays off
Cons
long hours, high pressure, rubbish salery, poor management.

Long hours for not much reconition
Branch Manager (Current Employee) –  Yorkshire26 June 2017
Good pay but expect you to work your fingers to the bone for it expected to work through dinners for no extra money. Days are very long and there is no need for everyone to be in for 10 hours a day. When results are going bad they blame you even if there has been a down turn in the market and all the other branches are not performing.
Pros
Good wages
Cons
Long hours / Pressure to hit a number before everything else

horrible , dusty , sad warehouse.
Picker (Current Employee) –  York31 May 2017
unfortunately when i first started at euro car parts i had a good opinion on the workplace/management.

as time went on i realised i had fooled myself into what i thought. it is a place full of backstabbing management and unprofesional staf members who moan and argue with eachother over communucation and lack of effort throughout.
people are always threatening to leave and while i have worked there ive been to the doctors over stress becaouse it is to much to cope with doing 6 days a week in the envoronment that is that poor. do NOT attemp to work here please, you cannot even have a lunch break without been moaned at.
Pros
xero
Cons
long hours, moan over lunch breaks, awful stressful place.

Good salary and bonus scheme. Difficult to progress
Parts Advisor (Current Employee) –  Woolwich13 May 2017
Euro Car Parts are a good company to work for, competitive pay a very good bonus scheme but looking to progress in the company is a struggle. Don't get the chance to learn other areas of the company.
