    I worked at Dorman Products full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    they offer lots of course to keep you up to date with the news programs.

    Cons

    I'm a person that likes to be busy and because I want out of my way to make sure the job was done. Which then they expected thus all the time without no more money. Though some of the management don't work got a raise. They forget the hard working contributors and give the bonus and more money to contributors that they don't want to deal with. Look of high school grab that goes on there.

    Advice to Management

    They really need to look at the contributors exactly doing the work.

    Pros

    Great company culture. Good benefits and interesting people to work with on a daily basis. Management was fair and tried their best to help you achieve the career path you wanted.

    Cons

    Although they profess to be creative and have their programs that they advance. They don't always provide the training to get you there. There is some good old boy systems in place and unless you are one of them, they tend to ignore you.

    Advice to Management

    Make everyone feel like they are part of the culture. Managers are sometimes distant and do not take an interest in their employees.

    Benefits and perks quite good. Fair wage. Good diversity.

    Cons

    Upward mobility seemed rather limited.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more energy and resources on R&D. I wager you'll see New Business and Repeat Business increase, and Warranty claims decrease.
