    I have been working at S.P. Richards full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The company is financially secure and business is on the uptick. There is a feeling of genuine concern from Executive leadership team. Good benefits. Has strong ties to owner Genuine Parts. Overall, this a good company to work for and it's very stable.

    Cons

    Leadership needs to do a better job of communicating core strategies to all employees. There is not a lot of room for advancement unless you're in sales.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs a better way of developing subordinates rather than promoting the same folks over and over.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at S.P. Richards in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Standard phone call for interview, very timely. Interview consisted of standard questions such as what are you doing right now, why do you want the job and what pay do you want. Outside of the standard interview questions, nothing out of the ordinary.
