    Advice to Management

    While I understand that the point of any business is making money, I'd like to think that there's a right way and a wrong way to go to it. Whoever is in charge of this outfit might want to re-think how they're doing things, as I for one am pretty disappointed with them.

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

    Pros

    Very flexible work hours. I've had several instances that cause me to have to either come in late or leave early for personal reasons. You automatically start to accrue sick time and vacation which is 2 weeks right from the start.

    Cons

    Some people working here are temps and just don't care so it's a lot of picking up after others while staying on top of your own tasks. Management is very passive aggressive.

    Pros

    If you don't work at the corporate office, the culture is very different. I love the very relaxed environment.

    Cons

    Upper Management tells management what to do, then does a song and dance to get around it. Safety is a moderate concern in the warehouse.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to get out of the way and remember that employee safety should be above all.

    Pros

    The people I work with, If you are a driver you get to work by yourself most of the time.

    Cons

    Unsafe environment expected to lift heavy boxes and take loads of boxes without a dolly provided. Poor vehicle maintenance most vehicles have cracked windows or other problems that are not fixed. They also expect you to make deliveries close to closing time in your own personal vehicle without compensation for gas or paying you overtime which I'm pretty sure is illegal. Management also shows favoritism in who they give what routes and work load to. You will never be praised in this company when you do something right, you will only be singled out when you do something wrong no matter how minor it is. It's a chaotic unsafe work environment that I would not recommend to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Change your return policy, dont blame drivers for places returning merchandise maybe charge them a restocking fee like every other company but factory does. Also treat your workers with respect and acknowledge their success and then maybe you would have a lower turnover rate.

    I worked at Factory Motor Parts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly co workers from corporate to the locations.
    The relationships with your Co workers
    I have nothing more to say here because their is nothing good to say about this company

    Cons

    Over worked
    Underpaid
    Extreme lack of leadership from managers
    No compassion, empathy or people skills
    Moral down in department
    Lies, lies and more lies
    No flexibility

    Advice to Management

    I suggest that the president of this company. His own company...NEEDS TO CLEAN HOUSE! Elliott your company has no respect in the community because of your rapid turnover and managers. I suggest you do your homework and see what is going on in your company. Starting with HR to upper management. Your key people are manipulative and irresponsible as managers to allow certain things that go on. However, their is only one department in your company that has extensive drama. This should be very serious to you! But why do you care your pulling in your sales money every quarter and you really do not care about all those other employees that who you have no idea who they are. I do not recommend, run from the interview they will only like you through your probation period and they don't like to be challenged.
