I have been working at WORLDPAC full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Worldpac has good benefits, day shifts an occasional Saturday shifts, driver pay is low at the start but the company is constantly expanding and management positions open up every week across canada and the united states. Its a company the rewards hard work and people will to do what is needed for the company to succeed

Cons

Low starting pay, and low yearly wage increases, and the summer workloads are high stress in a time most staff would prefer to have time off to enjoy there own personal lives.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Increase starting wage, and/or create a better raise increase system

    The Industry leader- but not employee friendly

    I worked at WORLDPAC full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worldpac is the leader in the Automotive aftermarket. It offers it's employee's relatively good benefits. Technologically advanced, Worldpac provides it's employee's with tools to help them succeed that no other company in the industry does.

    Cons

    There are very high stress levels in many departments at Worldpac. Prior to current ownership, it used to be a employee friendly company. That changed several years ago when upper level management changed. The company mantra now is "hit the number no matter what the cost"! Usually that cost is at the employee's expense. Their mental and physical health, and their personal lives. Upper management no longer views their employee's as assets, but rather see's them as "expendable commodities" that can be replaced at any time for a lower cost. Managements attitude is "where else are they going to go work?" Exempt employees are expected to regularly work six days a week with no additional compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Worldpac became the industry leader based on the work of it's talented and loyal employees! For many years the company's internal motto was "Our employees make the difference". These days, employee's no longer feel valued! In at least one department, compensation is reduced every year! How demoralizing is that, to work hard and produce more, and to be compensated less year after year? Everything that Worldpac used to do to convey to it's employees that they were valued has been taken away to put a couple more bucks in GPI's pockets! Employee appreciation days, a yearly holiday meal, even very small bonuses. Senior management needs to wake up and realize that their greatest asset is their employees, and that any short term financial gains they may be achieving now will soon disappear as more and more talented employee's leave the company!

    Pros

    nice car to drive and lots of petro points

    Cons

    No breaks
    No lunches
    Management couldn't care less about the drivers. Bottom line was to get the parts out to the customer no matter what.

    If you are overloaded in workload, you are on your own. No help is provided.

    There are no backup drivers. If someone is sick someone else is now running two routes, plus you are still expected to be on time.

    Management wil tell you whatever you want to hear to pretend to care.

    Everything takes too long to take care of. No matter the problem it takes months to resolve. Replacing a driver or warehouse worker takes a minimum of two months. Turnover is high for all of these reasons. I was there for just over a year and we were short staffed at least 90% of the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn what the word management means and apply that to the job site.
