Mission: Dorman Product's Mission is to enlarge the aftermarket through product innovation. Through our unique Culture of Contribution, we will be the leading Company providing solutions and value for our customers and end-users.
I have been working at Dorman Products full-time (More than 3 years)
This is the type of company that people don't think exist... They truly value your contributions and are friendly and supportive. This environment may not be for everyone, as you must be a self-starter and motivated to produce results.
The freedom in which you operate can sometimes make you feel like you have no direction.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Dorman Products (Colmar, PA) in October 2016.
I was contacted just a day after applying, completed a brief phone screening and all went well. I was invited to come in for a face to face interview. I was invited in and was told I would be there about 3-4 hours. (Expecting someone to come in for a 3-4 hour interview, especially while working FT, is a little crazy.)
I interviewed with my HR contact, the manager of the department, and another HR person. The interview went well, I was given a tour of the facility. After meeting with all 3 people, I was asked to take a skill test. The test was in excel, mostly containing industry related word problems, pivot tables, VLookup, etc. They put me in a small room with a notepad, a pencil and a laptop and said I had 45 minutes to complete.
I feel the test was very outdated, especially the format. (there are programs available to complete these tests online.) The word problems are tricky to someone not familiar with their industry language.
The interview ended and I was told someone would be in touch within a week. Following the interview I reached out to follow up and received no response. A few days later I reached out again, and again, received no response.
It is very unprofessional to ignore candidates... especially those that have taken the time to go through the interview process. 4 hours is a lot to ask of someone... then to not respond after, is extremely unprofessional. At least have the courtesy to tell someone you are moving forward with other candidates - it only takes a minute of your time!
