    Pros

    Flex time. You have a window of time to come and go. However, very strict about having to take at least a 30 minute lunch.

    Unorganized management. Management changes procedures and policies without fully understanding job functions.

    Advice to Management

    Put more time in developing and training people.

    I have been working at Genuine Parts full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for GPC for seven years in their Shared Services IT department. Compensation is OK. Flexible time. Work from home (one day a week). Location is good.

    Cons

    Every year in the past 4 years I have been thinking of leaving, but because of some personal reasons I am still with them. I know that by default women in the technology industry are not appreciates as they ought to be, but GPC is horrible in this regard. Obvious discrimination in terms of salary and promotions, and when management is confronted they can't give you any answers. No career growth opportunities. Everybody is talking about change, but nothing is changing. 2 weeks of vacation unless you have been with the company for 7 years. No diversity except for the contractors. Management/Company is stuck in the 70s.

    Pros

    Stability. It's a big public company so lots of procedure so everything runs smoothly. I've made great friends from GPC so that's a plus.

    Cons

    Cliques among management. Sometimes the mentality is to keep your head and down and do your job. Gets a little stale in the office sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the APAR personnel and try to interact more with them positively.

    I worked at Genuine Parts full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Meeting new people everyday, bonus program, company vehicle,expense account.

    Cons

    Politics, playing favorites, too much upper management. NAPA still thinks their name stands for quality, which is does not. Competitors use the exact same parts and sell them for 5%-20% less.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at how much upper management there is compared to the ground-level sales force. Automotive Aftermarket competition is getting fierce. Price is the consumers #1 priority, not the name anymore.
