    I worked at Dorman Products full-time (More than 3 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. The "Culture of Contribution" is like one of those lies that seems true if you say it enough.
    -Very little training for your specific responsibility. However, if you're not an accountable person you can use this as an excuse.
    -The personalities in management (directors level) rarely take responsibility for their group's performance. It becomes an intensive "blame game" culture when errors are made or team goals aren't met.
    -Low transparency between levels. Goals are rarely communicated to the workers, and never to an understandable extent.

    Advice to Management

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

    I worked at Dorman Products full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, always busy, opportunity for growth... Tend to hire young people and promote quickly through the ranks. Family business - care about employees.

    Cons

    Human Resources department is weak. Long hours, can't leave until after your boss leaves. Vacation time not valued - praised for not taking it.

    Advice to Management

    Stay close to the ranks... Executives tend to avoid conversations with people without rank.
