Genuine Parts – Why Work For Us?


Genuine Parts Company, founded in 1928, is a service organization engaged in the distribution of automotive replacement parts, industrial replacement parts, office products and electrical/electronic materials.

With over 86 years of distribution expertise, GPC's commitment and reputation for just-in-time service position us as a critical partner in our customers' success.


In 1928, Carlyle Fraser founded GPC with the purchase of Motor Parts Depot in Atlanta, GA for $40,000. He renamed the parts store Genuine Parts Company. The original Genuine Parts Company store had annual sales of just $75,000, and only 6 employees.

For the next 50+ years, GPC in relationship with NAPA, grew rapidly as independent garages for car repair spread. From the beginning, GPC stressed swift, reliable service as a way to outflank the competition.

In the last 35+ years, GPC has continued to grow through the acquisition of other companies in the automotive industry, as well as the industrial, office and electrical industries.

Today Genuine Parts Company is a leading parts distributor with over 2,600 operations and approximately 37,500 employees.

    Average Interview


    Only a phone interview, no in-person interview which I though was strange. Typical questions, had about 3-4 people listening in on the call. Overall, it wasn't to bad, but I thought they asked an abnormal amount of personality/decision-making questions, instead of my experience.
