    Former Employee - Forklift Driver in Norcross, GA
    Former Employee - Forklift Driver in Norcross, GA

    I worked at WORLDPAC full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime and opportunity to learn warehousing. Several forklifts to be certified on if you are one of the select few to get the opportunity.

    Cons

    Work you to the bone, Very physically demanding job, poor facility attitude due to being encouraged in a negative manner through upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Positive reinforcement is much more productive than negative. Employ teamwork instead of a no talking policy. Teams provide an incremental amount of higher production value if done correctly.

    Former Employee - Transporter in Santa Rosa West, CA

    I worked at WORLDPAC part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Dealing with the customers is the only perk this job has. Chance to meet great people and socialize (but for only 3 seconds)

    Cons

    Everything else. Had to drive my own truck. The management at the local one here in Santa Rosa has a real loud personality and voice. Given impossible time table unless you want to run a risk of a speeding ticket. I was fired because they thought I was cheating them on my millage, when in fact, most times I was under reporting my millage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go to the personality store and pick up a sample pack! Give the drivers the benefit of the doubt and stick up for them.

    Former Employee - Warehouse/Delivery Driver in Lynnwood, WA
    Former Employee - Warehouse/Delivery Driver in Lynnwood, WA

    I worked at WORLDPAC full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Meeting new people and establishing an acquaintance with customers.

    Cons

    Poor management at Lynnwood warehouse, nosy people, favoritism by management, personal vendettas by management certain company policy's that cause stress because every time you start the vehicle could be your last day there because of a mistake. To easy to lose your job over such things as hear say, accused of being a liar anytime you get a driver alert from the 800# on the vehicle. All around they aren't a very good company to work for if you're looking for fair treatment by management and sensible requirements pertaining to the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat every employee equally. Stop condemning some employees with rules and bending them for others. Take your employees word over some stranger that you've never met or have any idea if the report has any truth to it. Stop listening to hear say. Stop with the favoritism and yelling at employees and arguing with them and stop involving your self in others conversations. Stop embarrassing and humiliating employees by chewing them out, yelling at them and deliberately belittling them in front of the other employees just to satisfy your power trip egos.

    Pros

    Five days a week. 7 to 4 very easy.

    Cons

    Job is rather boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to cross train employees to offset boredom. Upper management not friendly at all.

    I worked at WORLDPAC

    Pros

    It is a good place to get some experience right out of college. Relaxed managers that are understanding about work/home balance.

    Cons

    The pay is less than average compared to other companies in the area. Raises don't even keep up with inflation much less reward an individual for their accomplishments.

    Former Employee - Driver/Warehouse Team Member in Mechanicsville, VA

    I worked at WORLDPAC full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The only thing that I enjoyed was getting to drive a Toyota Prius around town to deliver auto parts.

    Cons

    The management was challenging. They were more interested in sitting at the desk behind a computer than actually managing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest speaking to employees as if they were people and less like vermin. Talking down to those who are doing all of the work is counter productive.

    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
