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

    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Friendly Workplace, busy all the time.

    Need better compensation. People are let go even at the higher management level with minimum warning which creates a sense of fear, keeping people on their toes.
