    "Constantly changing usually not for the better"

      Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I worked at Transamerican Auto Parts

      Pros

      Great customers, wide variety of products

      Cons

      Nobody can accurately tell you how the commission plan works. Pay plans are always changing. Absolutely no morals. Very unprofessional work environment

      Advice to Management

      Don’t over think it. Get some more qualified 4 wheel drive enthusiasts and less corporate numbers crunchers from Polaris. They have no clue

      Pros

      The RRSP plan is decent

      Cons

      • Drinking on the drop by store managers • Excessive drinking and drug abuse in the shop during, and after store hours (staff and customers could get severely injured or killed) • The managers will sabotage your work to create reasons for write-ups • They regularly forgo provincial and federal laws to screw over the employees • The manager's motto is "take their money first, then worry about getting the parts" •...

      Advice to Management

      This location needs to be seriously investigated before someone is seriously injured or worse. Then, under new management, the store may have an opportunity to turn around.

      I worked at Transamerican Auto Parts full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      - Excellent employee purchase program, but then again, you're also paying to customize your own vehicle, in hopes that it will promote their products and services. - Does allow for better than average work / life balance. - Excellent 401K program.

      Cons

      - Changing targets for hitting commission payments. - Inability to be price competitive in certain markets. - Parent company owns several brands. Account Execs often find themselves competing with vendors who purchase from Transamerican Wholesale at rates cheaper than if buying internally. - Very poor management at regional and national levels. - Very negative environment which trickles down from top of the organization....

      career advancement opportunities. for enthusiast, its a great opportunity to work in the industry.

      Cons

      difficulty maintaining management due to too much micromanaging and too little incentive. Upper management is extremely unorganized and unprofessional. Management doesn't respect employee home life/family obligations and expect overtime or meetings after hours with little to no notice.

      "poor middle management"

        Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

        I have been working at Transamerican Auto Parts full-time

        Pros

        Employee purchase program is good. Good place to learn offroad environment.

        Cons

        Company has gotten worse and worse as time goes on. Lot of speculation of parts that never make it to production. I don't like when a problem is identified on a lift kit and nothing gets done to fix it years later. Health care is meh. You'd think a big company with thousands of employees would have better priced healthcare.
