I worked at WorldPac full-time for 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

    Flexible and Easy going

    Cons

    Job security is low and the pay isnt good .I worked there under a very incompetent management ,they will use you like a commodity and when they feel a certain way about you they will put the gun on your temple and pull the trigger.I was fired basically because a manager didnt take my complaints in a positive manner ,,..its a really stressful job and the demands are high compared to what you are getting paid

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

    Pros

    Tons of work available and constantly expanding. Never need to be worried about a lack of work even in the off season.

    With expanding warehouses and new warehouses popping up all over, the ability to advance is unlimited.

    Friendly management team and co-workers.

    Excellent benefits and great discounts on parts. Ability to find great mechanics and build relationships with said mechanics. That relationship gives you reliable work done for your vehicle at a great discount!

    Cons

    Lots of red tape involved but nothing out of the ordinary for a company this size.

    Lunch is usually taken while on the road.

    Can chew up and spit out workers who are looking for straight 40 hour weeks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find time for lunch and order winter tires for company vehicles. The cost of winter tires will be paid back in saving time driving around on all season tires during snow storms.
