    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.

    I have been working at Dorman Products full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Opportunities to prove my value and share my knowledge
    - Training Programs to help me be a better people leader
    -CEO and Senior Leaders participate in Onboarding and have an open door
    policy
    -Casual dress everyday

    Cons

    Fast growing and lots of change that sometimes doesn't get communicated as quickly. Dorman has Townhall Meetings to better improve its communication to all contributors.

    Advice to Management

    Continue allowing us to make decisions.

    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.

    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.

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

    Pros

    Work atmosphere is casual, working in the warehouse is a downside. Not climate controlled. Group leads loyalties vary depending on Supervisor or Department Manager

    Cons

    Limited room for growth. Production rates vary greatly and often. High turnover rate. Drug tests for individuals involved in any accident, regardless of fault.

    Advice to Management

    Do as you say, be an example, know and care about your people. When I started, I was a name, by the time I left, I was a number.

    Current Employee - Engineering Intern in Colmar, PA

    I have been working at Dorman Products full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly environment where people seem to like and have fun with each other. Lots of BBQ and team building events that allows for you to get to know your co-workers.

    Cons

    Engineering work is not very fulfilling. Definitely a more business/product based company. From what I have seen and do, engineers tend to just look and approve parts but do very little of the actual engineering of it.
