    I have been working at Genuine Parts full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The people and customers I would say the product lines but all of you're competitors have the same lines some have better line.

    Cons

    Good lord where do we start?

    Top heavy in managers and most of them are lazy and arrogant. Even the new managers they are hiring adapt to this Old School management style two weeks into the job.

    Politics run all over the place and there are so many layers of management you don't know who's ass to kiss to get ahead in this place. (I am not an ass kisser so that's why I am stuck)

    People are not promoted for knowledge and job performance, they are promoted if they fit the network.

    Practices and tools in this company are so out dated it is laughable. I had a meeting with a competitor that is so far ahead of NAPA/GPC it was astounding. CRM is a joke cataloging is a joke the management is a joke.

    Advice to Management

    Get into the end of the 20th century at least!!

    Who cares if your NAPA others have passed you by.

    I have been working at Genuine Parts full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Stability. It's a big public company so lots of procedure so everything runs smoothly. I've made great friends from GPC so that's a plus.

    Cons

    Cliques among management. Sometimes the mentality is to keep your head and down and do your job. Gets a little stale in the office sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the APAR personnel and try to interact more with them positively.
