    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    The freedom in which you operate can sometimes make you feel like you have no direction.

    Good Benefits.

    Some growing pains and some Contributors struggle with change, especially those who have been around a long time.

    Just need to make sure the chain of communication is stronger in some of the departments.
