    Pros

    Has a great schedule options

    Cons

    The company as a whole is really great. My biggest issue has been the attitudes of other contributors, the lack of team work and managements lack of concern for fixing the problems.

    Pros

    Fellow employees are friendly and they can be very helpful. Dorman is a growing company, and provides an open environment where you can adjust your hours to your personal needs. They provide the 'Atta Boys" when certain goals are met. There is a well-orchestrated company picnic and Holiday lunch on company time. The dress code is lenient, jeans and sneakers are usually acceptable attire.

    Cons

    There is a lack of training that makes it difficult to really "come on board" for about a year. Training is left up to various people, some of whom have no idea what they are talking about. A title determines your pay, not your accomplishments. Most raises are across the board for everyone, and not performance-based. Although Dorman requires us to do a bi-annual review of our performance, it apparently is not required for management to meet with you, or provide input and/or goals. Advancement is difficult and only occurs if someone leaves. You can work for 2-3 groups and be paid the same amount as someone who works for one group.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to and reward your hard workers. There is a lot of dead wood at Dorman in the office. It's noticed.
