    I have been working at Genuine Parts full-time for less than a year

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Genuine Parts full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I have been working at Genuine Parts

    Pros

    Somewhat decent management, flexible with time off, good benefits with 5% 401k match, easy work, little stress, and no long hours.

    Cons

    Dull corporate culture, horrible internal communication between management and subordinates, mundane and repetitive work, low salary compared to industry standard.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication and salary for employees needs to be stepped up considerably. I can't count how many times a new initiative or program has not been communicated until there was a departmental mistake made.
