Parts Manager Reviews

What is it like working as a Parts Manager?

Parts Manager in New Brighton:
"Busy."
Pros: Dealing with vendors and technicians. I love dealing with customers and making people happy. I enjoy keeping inventory up to date and accurate.
Cons: Can be overwhelming. Expected to perform parts and service work day to day. Too much responsibility and not enough pay.

Parts Manager in Pomona:
Pros: Everyday is a challenge. There is nothing dull about this job. Everyday a truck or trailer will need maintenance. Whether it be an accident, poor maintenance, or wear and tear. Troubleshooting the problem can be easy and sometimes difficult. No matter what finding the right name of a part at first was hard, but when it becomes repeatedly, you start feeling more like a specialist because you know what your ordering. Keeping a good memory and knowing how to keep cost low is a major key in making a company grow.
Cons: The workload alone can be stressful to a point where you want to just throw up your hands and scream. Especially when you need a part right away and no one has it in stock, they are short delivery runners, we are short runners. Best thing to do just go pick up the part yourself. It will get you away for a bit and by the time your back your in a good mood again.

Parts Manager in Eagan:
"Busy, Busy, Busy!"
Pros: I'm challenged on a daily basis with new tasks I have to teach myself and rarely but sometimes rewarded with a "thank you."
Cons: No breaks, high demand for productivity and VERY little pay. No recognition. Managers very unprofessional. Much illegal and immoral activity in the company, when reported, goes unaddressed. Those who report are punished and often constructively discharged. Laziness of technicians is condoned, if they are liked by their peers. Unpopular employees are heavily critiqued and reprimanded for things that they are not guilty of. Whole company overall, including the parts department is extremely disorganized, though I am helping to organize the one I am in charge of now.
