Sales/ warehouse assistant (Former Employee) –  London, Greater London12 November 2017
Enjoyed working at this company. I learnt a lot and was trained in most areas.
The hardest part of this job was when I was lifting heavy items. That’s when they trained me in the accounts office and I worked in that department.
They treated me fairly and understood my needs as well.
Pros
Nice people
Cons
Long hours

Absolute shambles
Sales Assistant (Former Employee) –  Derby, Derbyshire10 November 2017
Management can't cope with the job, they have zero skills and do not care about the staff one bit. Worked into the ground and doing the work of about 6 people for minimum wage! Theft and parts missing all the time yet still no cameras? No lunch breaks especially on a Saturday! Heavy lifting and running up and down the stairs all day, your best work is never good enough for them! They always want more! No wonder they have no staff when they treat them so badly! Half the time also having to beg customers to come back, don't know how the place has stayed open. Never worked for a company with such poor management!
Pros
None
Cons
Management, no lunch break, spoken to like rubbish, unsafe

Poor, unsanitary and overall horrible place to work for.
Selector (Former Employee) –  Atherstone, Warwickshire1 November 2017
Management at the time was poor, the entire workplace was unsanitary and you had people sleeping on the floors whilst everyone was working around them.

I really enjoyed my time working for the company . The day was never the same. The days used to fly by because your out and about all day. We used a system called road hawk to monitor our driving skills daily.

Felxible Workplace
Warehouse Operative (Former Employee) –  Derbyshire15 October 2017
Good place to work, flexible hours and good learning culture. A typical day would be to sign in and get the assigned list of items needed for each client, pick them and pack them for delivery.

Stay unemployed / in your existing job
Management (Former Employee) –  North West11 October 2017
If you like zero job security, unachievable targets, a culture of fear and long long working hours where any breaks are frowned upon apply for Euro Car Parts! If any month you miss targets, your in fear of losing your job!
Pros
Cheap Parts for your own vehicle
Cons
I could be here all week

Euro Car Parts
Warehouse Picker (Former Employee) –  Euro Car Parts, Abergele21 September 2017
You couldn't work for a more profit oriented firm of foreign crooks than these guys. Zero breaks and a dog eat dog attitude is required in this cut throat firm of sales oriented savages. Decent people need not apply.
Pros
None
Cons
I'd be here all day

Avoid if you like working hard
Driver (Current Employee) –  Colchester, Essex20 September 2017
A typical day: Many mistakes made by employees. Customers don't seem to think highly of the branch. The vans pretty much on last legs quite dangerous at times.

Workplace Culture: Too much banter absolutely no health and safety. A number of very rude employees.

Management: No control what so ever.

The hardest part of the job: Going into work.

The most enjoyable part of the job: Just getting away from the depot.
Pros
Exposure to the motor industry
Cons
Quite a few it was like being back at school

Soul destroying
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

ECP Derby.... don't bother
Warehouse/driver (Former Employee) –  Derby10 September 2017
Overall not a great place to work, management don't have a clue, people stealing from the company left right and centre very obviously, a lot of people employed there who shouldn't be, there are better jobs out there for minimum wage where you don't get verbally abused!
Pros
Discounted parts
Cons
Lack of management, working with idiots

Hard work and stressful
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
