    I have been working at Dorman Products full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    -Flexible Schedule, 401k Match, Profit Sharing, Tuition Assistance, Casual Dress Code, Company Picnics, Holiday Lunch, Holiday Cash -They empower you to make your own decisions and take risks -Many avenues to take if a particular field isn't your ideal job -Promote from within

    Cons

    Not too many. They hire right out of college, so the lack of maturity and experience is sometimes a bit of a hurdle.

    I have been working at Dorman Products full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    I have been employed by Dorman Products for 10 years now and they have many ways to assist their employees in life's hardships. They do a lot for the contributors and are very family oriented.

    Cons

    I would like to see more concern for the quality of the product. And I feel like over the past few years they have increased the rates to the point that only younger employees are able to maintain the rates required which forces the older employees to move into lower paying positions or they will lose their jobs due to not being able to make the rate.

    Advice to Management

    Place more value in quality of product and show more appreciation for your hard working, dedicated, quality conscious contributor's. Speed is not everything!

      I worked at Dorman Products full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      -Laid back environment (dress code, interactions, work hours). -Very low expectations of work, timelines, milestones, etc. -Reasonable salaries - medium for experienced, high for entry level. -Benefits are made available: 401K, Health, MBA.

      Cons

      -Very little to learn. The basis of the company is to make me-too products for cheap, so most of the work is just sourcing from outside the US, specifically Asia. Explaining the "Dorman" portion of your resume is embarrassing, awkward at best. This can be said even for people that have stayed with the company for 15 years. -People taking advantage of the "low expectations" pro above are extremely difficult to work with....

      Advice to Management

      The company isn't doing bad, so I guess keep it up.
