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

Pros

Worldpac is the leader in the Automotive aftermarket. It offers it's employee's relatively good benefits. Technologically advanced, Worldpac provides it's employee's with tools to help them succeed that no other company in the industry does.

Cons

There are very high stress levels in many departments at Worldpac. Prior to current ownership, it used to be a employee friendly company. That changed several years ago when upper level management changed. The company mantra now is "hit the number no matter what the cost"! Usually that cost is at the employee's expense. Their mental and physical health, and their personal lives. Upper management no longer views their employee's as assets, but rather see's them as "expendable commodities" that can be replaced at any time for a lower cost. Managements attitude is "where else are they going to go work?" Exempt employees are expected to regularly work six days a week with no additional compensation.

Advice to Management

Worldpac became the industry leader based on the work of it's talented and loyal employees! For many years the company's internal motto was "Our employees make the difference". These days, employee's no longer feel valued! In at least one department, compensation is reduced every year! How demoralizing is that, to work hard and produce more, and to be compensated less year after year? Everything that Worldpac used to do to convey to it's employees that they were valued has been taken away to put a couple more bucks in GPI's pockets! Employee appreciation days, a yearly holiday meal, even very small bonuses. Senior management needs to wake up and realize that their greatest asset is their employees, and that any short term financial gains they may be achieving now will soon disappear as more and more talented employee's leave the company!

    I have been working at WORLDPAC full-time

    Pros

    Cheap parts. Days go by quick. No dorky uniforms like the competition. Get to see some beautiful vehicles daily

    Cons

    No OT, poor choice of vehicles to spend 8+ hours a day in, no AC in vehicles. Raises are almost nonexistent. Some customers are impossible to deal with.

    Sales take the side of the worst customers just to make a buck and never have your back when a situation arises.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the fat at the top. There needs to be more communication between sales, management and operations.

    Give people bonuses based on their performance, attendance and customer service feedback.
