Avoid the oxford branch poor management well only the ops manager
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) –  Oxford, Oxfordshire11 January 2018
Have worked here for about 6 mouths I had to leave last week the management have have no respect for their staff drivers are treated like rubbish I was going to put other word but not allowed like we are the lowest of the low with out us you would not have a company any way the ops manager at oxford don’t have a clue what’s he doing I seen him on a couple of occasions bullying staff swearing at them more stuff going out the back door than the front I think head office needs to send someone in undercover the management are allowing drivers to break the law by carrying 2 or 3 Berrels of oil in vans without ratchet straps fire exists are blocked with deliveries if you say any think you just get told if you don’t like it you no won’t you can do and vans safety repairs and not being done van with bold tyres anyone would think the management have to pay out of their own pocket the way he goes on like to point out all the other drivers and the warehouse staff and the driver Controller are great .
Pros
You get a bit of discount of parts
Cons
Long hours very poor pay and a bonus system the is fixed

Picker (Former Employee) –  Stockport9 January 2018
euro car parts is an excellent place to work as long as you are a full time employee if not you may feel a bit singled out as part time shifts are poor but most of its employees are very polite and willing to help in any way but as you get in allot of work places there are some whom are not so polite and willing to help with your troubles but as i say a very nice place to work if you love fast paced work and average 9 till 5 hours.

I felt let down by store managers
Parts Sales Advisor (Former Employee) –  Woodford, Greater London8 January 2018
A typical day at euro car parts is very busy and stressful.
Struggled to learn and develop.
ad a great manager until he got promoted and a new manger was brought in, to which many struggled with.
the hardest part of the job was struggling with learning to hard sell and get the sales when not from sales background, while also dealing with many customers from a vast ethnic backgrounds.
the enjoyable part is seeing a struggling customer come into the store hoping you can help them, find the issue and telling them you have the part they wanted on the shelf and it is a lot cheaper than they expected.
Pros
the ability to order parts for your own car, when required.
Cons
spent long hours on my feet with no real breaks.

Disgraceful
Customer Service Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Saltash, Cornwall3 January 2018
Overworked did several jobs out of my wage bracket never had support goventarvets that aren’t achievable manamgent is hired by the fact of an area managers mess ups. General and branch managers getting where they are by having something on their Rsm caused me to have major anxiety attacks still suffering. Wouldn’t give this company or recommend this company to anybody. Eur Car Parts are a disgrace.

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
