    I worked at Genuine Parts full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Older stable company, only come here if you need something to hold you over until you're able to get a new job somewhere else.

    Cons

    Where do I start, this organization from an IT perspective is a mess. GPC makes a ton of acquisitions per year and forever these subsidiaries have been functioning on their own up until recently. The non tech GPC CIO made a mandate to integrate them to become a Global company. Only one problem, these subsidiaries still have their own executives and it teams which makes things difficult to get done. Our information security...

    Advice to Management

    Diversify your leadership, stop playing the gold old boys network game and learn how to treat your employees

  5. "Bait and switch"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Operations Manager in New York, NY
    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at Genuine Parts full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    If you need experience doing a job, its here. Benefits, to working here - well.....

    Cons

    No training, no job path, no help from HQ. Management cages talented people to make themselves look great and smother them. Bait and switch to keep workers down. No reason to come here unless you are a sadist. You could fit right in.

    Advice to Management

    No advice. They will not listen since they are too smart for you.

    "Heavy on interpersonal politics"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Genuine Parts

    Pros

    Industry leading pay and benefits package. Unlimited advancement opportunities. Free ASE training/certification.

    Cons

    Inter-office politics seem to be more important than performance. Company will provide training, but then punish you for putting the training to task and doing what was asked of you. HR doesn’t take many store level employee concerns seriously.....if you can even get them to call you back.

    Advice to Management

    Senior leadership needs to practice what they preach.
