They work you illegally, don't give you any breaks and make you stand on your feet for 10 hours straight. They think they justify this behavior by buying a lunch with a budget of 10 dollars. but you have to eat it in between customers and driving, which is illegal btw. They treat women very poorly and yell and cuss at their employees. I would not wish my worst enemy to work their. NEVER WORK HERE. They are horrible.
Responsible for transporting product from the warehouse to store transfers multiple times a day. Required to work with customers to ensure their orders have arrived, as well as maintain a high level of memorization of part numbers & locations within the store.
The management lacks basic necessary skills, and treats staff poorly. The people you work with are terrible and it’s like your back in highschool with all the drama. They have one employee and she’s awful towards staff and customers, yet praised because she’s been there so long. She acts like she’s the boss and constantly starts problems with everyone. I wouldn’t recommend anyone work there until she’s gone.
The job was great i loved it but the coworkers were extremely toxic. The warehouse advisor plays favorites. The head of shipping was extremely unfriendly and grumpy all the time. Very unforgiving workplace with no room for mistakes. Would not suggest.
A day at work consists of checking your transfers from the warehouse or other locations. Calling your customers to let them know there parts have arrived. Answering telephone calls talking to customers with part availability and pricing. Taking calls from repair shops taking orders and getting them the parts they need. Learning where all the stock is kept in the back of the store and other warehouses. Helping other co workers with there orders and or putting stock away. The work atmosphere on the most part is good. co workers are fun or funny on the most part. The hardest part of the job at first was learning where all the stock was located in the store and also dealing with multiple calls and customers at the same time which can seem overwhelming at times. The most enjoyable part of the job would be making a sale to a satisfied customer or repair shop that was happy with your service that you gave them.
Each day is busy with a variety of tasks to be completed. The company offers onsite hands on training and off site work related training. The managers get to know their staff and encourage everyone to succeed. The hardest part of the job is ensuring all workers pay attention to detail and accuracy especially when restocking. I enjoyed all aspects of the job.
They play favorites majorly. Management can be good but other times they just stare at their phone. Sexism and racism is common and not called out. People working there only 15 years making barely over minimum wage. Good benefits, that is the only upside. People are only looking out for themselves. Corporate has no clue what goes on in branches and doesn't care. They put no value on the employee as a person; regardless of how long someone has been there. There is absolutely no support for anything from corporate or managers alike. Have kept connections there and i know nothing has changed since i left.

one of the best companies i ever worked for. management is good. many of opportunities for advancement if you put in the effort and show initiative. be the best you can, and Lordco will be the best for you.
They will work you to the bone, and pay you the minimum that they can. Managers are chosen as a popularity contest, and not based on your skill set, or devotion. The ones they like will get raises, promotions, and decent hours. If you speak your mind you will struggle to the point of depression before they listen, and even then nothing will change. They used to greatly care for their employees but now you are just a number that they can replace with someone that has many less years of experience, and nowhere near as much knowledge. Lordco will surely be the next Canadian Tire within the next few years.
I like work it is repetitive and a purpose. The hardest part is being focused on what your doing so you dont make a mistake I like putting things together. The manager is there if you need any help on what your job is.
I worked for Lordco auto parts for 4 years and in that time I had vacation days removed without reason, was harassed and bullied by management, was given very poor shifts because the manager favored other employees(that had less seniority).
I worked incredibly hard, was one of the most successful and polite sales people in that particular store, and was treated as if I didn't do a single thing.
I absolutely would not recommend working for Lordco, specifically the Burnside Road location in Victoria. Staff are rude, management is horrendous.
I absolutely LOVE the people I work with (most of them anyways), and we get along great! After more than two years there, my supervisor has come to trust me as one of her most reliable employees, and has been giving me increased responsibilities over time. That being said, I am not compensated nearly enough for the amount of work that I am responsible for, and this is taking into account that she has put in the maximum she is allowed to request an increase for during each of my reviews.
Extremely high on them self management the writings on the wall for the end of this company auto parts are far cheaper on the Internet. Consumables like oil washer fluid wiper blades etc. far cheaper at Walmart and Canadian tire
