Genuine Parts Company

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

Declined Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview
Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Genuine Parts Company (Atlanta, GA) in Dec 2020

Interview

I applied online, but did not hear from anyone from HR or even a recruiter. I just heard from the hiring manager via email to schedule the interview process. The first round would be with my peers. The second round was with the hiring manager. The 3rd round was with leadership and someone on my team as a technical lead. This was a multi-month interview process so be prepared for this. I did receive an offer but I declined it, in which I had to negotiate as they wanted to give me a low offer. The main reasons: 1. Low vacation policy (only get 5 days after 6 months, then another 5 days after another 6 months). You do start with 2 personal days you can take after 60 days. 2 Health benefits did not start till 61 days out. Decent package once you can get enrolled. I had multiple offers on the table but this was the key decision not to accept this offer. I feel if GPC wants to attract good talent they will need to modify this as companies are moving toward more work-life balance with unlimited vacation as well as closer start for benefits.

Interview Questions
  • Standard questions about resume as well as some examples of how I did things.

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Genuine Parts Company in Sep 2020

Interview

First interview was a 30-minute phone call with the hiring manager, who asked questions about my experience over the years and near the end of the call asked a few high-level technical questions to gauge my level of familiarity with programming. Afterward, I received a coding challenge which consisted of three options from which I was to pick one to complete. Final interview consisted of 2 separate video calls each lasting an hour (these would have been in person were it not for COVID). The devops interview was first and had 3 people mostly asking workflow experience and culture-fit type questions. The technical interview was next, and we discussed my coding challenge for a few minutes, and the rest of the time they quizzed me to determine my level of understanding of programming and logic.

Interview

The phone interview was great. The in-person interview went okay. The interviewer was very cold and remarkably un-rememberable. I have zero respect for companies and their disdain for candidates by not following-up with candidates. Very disrespectful.

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Genuine Parts Company (Sacramento, CA) in Jul 2019

Interview

This was the second time I've interviewed with GPC. The first was for the Director position that I did not move forward in the process. I was transparent in letting the hiring manager know as he was the one who did the initial screening and asked me to come in for an in-person interview. I thought I did well in the interview and was eager to move forward in the process. I was told that they wanted to move quickly and that I should hear by the following week. I followed up with an email to the hiring manager the following week and did not receive a response; I followed again the week after and no response; then I followed up again in the third week asking for some type of closure stating that I'm assuming the position has been filled (even though the job kept popping up on different sites). I just wanted to be able to close the loop. Still no response. I reached out to the HR Generalist after that and she quickly responded and told me that they have moved forward with another candidate. I thought the interview itself was fine, but it did leave a very bad impression when I didn't receive any follow-up from the hiring manager after three attempts. Granted, he could have forwarded it to someone to respond, but after the third attempt, it would have been nice to at least acknowledge the oversight in communication. I will say the first time I interviewed, I had a similar experience, however, it didn't go on for this long with no response. My thought is if you intend on going through the interview process, please be prepared that if you don't get a call/email right away after interviewing, more than likely you are not moving forward in the process.
