    Pros

    Good Benefits.
    The people, called Contributors are super nice and welcome new people with open arms
    Growing Company with lots of opportunity.
    They try hard to keep all informed with Town Hall meetings and a lot of updates on their portal.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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

    Paying better attention to their employees

    Pros

    Good place to learn and build your resume

    Cons

    Sink or swim environment. Cannot fit in any room with management their egos are much to large. If you are a "YES man" then this is the place for you but if management doesn't like you then you are doomed no matter what. Last few years they seem to be clearing out any employee with a higher salary, no points for loyalty or knowledge. Good luck if you are going in, I would recommend keeping your resume up to date.

    Advice to Management

    Keep lining your pockets at the rate you are going this certainly won't last forever.

    Pros

    Fast paced and growing company that cares about it's contributors.

    Cons

    It is close to Philadelphia, but still about 40 miles away from the city. Also the local weather changes too quick. I was always a fan of the warmer weather which only lasts for a few short months here.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage your employees to want to work hard. It is amazing what a person can achieve when positively motivated.

    Pros

    Upper management will lie to you and tell you they don't retrain if you can't meet the already high expectations. They will retrain you if they like you. If they don't you are fired!

    Cons

    Hectic. Unmanaged. Lower pay. Impossible goals.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites. A human is a human regardless of if you like them or not.

    Pros

    I can't think of any.

    Cons

    Find somewhere else, this place is a dungeon. There is zero company culture and management is terrible. Dorman has this ridiculous expectation that you should be ready to work 24/7 - forget about a work/life balance.

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

    Pros

    Some co-workers are great bathrooms are very clean
    You have smoking areas
    Somewhat good environment
    Pay is good
    Bonuses are good if you can get them
    Alright insurance

    Cons

    I worked at Dorman the Portland,TN facility four 4 yrs.before they let me go for some crap that was made up,i come in to work one day and a co-worker came to me saying " I heard you got fired?" Nope still here.So about 2 weeks go by and I just happen to loose something so I went to lost and found, and the HR person tells me he needs to talk to me,he tells me that Dorman no longer needs me. I say Ok why wasn't I told this two weeks ago when someone told me that they thought I was fired? He said he couldn't find me.????? You do have a intercom system, HELLO!!!! you could have called me over it? (Couldn't find me for two weeks that's bs.) Never the less I got fired for some bogus bull crap. so up yours Dorman and Dorman Management. you hired me without checking my education background I had no GED or Diploma so I'm just wondering who you hire without doing background checks? Murderer's, paedophiles just who do you hire you bunch of ignorant ungrateful people in management.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure no one outside of management knows that someone is getting fired and do a complete background check,cause you'll never know who you hire.
