    I worked at Genuine Parts full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Genuine Parts Company is a wonderful organization with some standout employees. They are very loyal to their employees, and provide a quality compensation package. Plenty of opportunity to take on additional training and responsibility. For someone looking to work in a corporate finance environment, GPC is a great place to be. Lot's of employees have been with the company for 30+ years, and their stock/ dividend payments...

    Cons

    The culture at GPC is about 10 years behind trend. Just this past year, they implemented "open work areas", which resemble layouts that have already become obsolete in the modern workplace. They hire VERY few individuals out of college, and there are very few social opportunities outside of work. GPC, specifically the Shared Services department, is still experiencing growing pains. This can be felt heavily during...

    Advice to Management

    I think it would be beneficial to GPC's culture and longevity if more focus was placed on developing young talent. The interns are often left spending days without any work crossing their desk, and therefore do not receive any real exposure into the inner-workings of a corporate finance department. Not very appealing to a soon-to-be college grad. Additionally, I think HR should consider personality testing for ALL...

    I have been working at Genuine Parts full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Coworkers are fairly decent

    Cons

    I'm a ASE parts specialist. I've been stuck in the same position for 9yrs. Management promises a performance review every year in april. We haven't received any reviews. Only received two $.30 cent raises. Communication is very poor. The only permotions given have been to two young high school grads.

    Advice to Management

    Make more effort to communicate and follow through with promises. No one is happy to have ageism as thier work culture.

    I have been working at Genuine Parts full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great pay and rewards for hard work. Lots of opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    You must be relocated to get promotions for the most part. Tough on family life. Our jobs can sometimes be in jeopardy because of the market conditions, even if we work our tails off.

    Advice to Management

    I know we lose a lot of good people due to moving.

    I worked at Genuine Parts

    Pros

    Environment was nice always clean . Really nice people who work there. And they work with you as far a schedules, they know life happens.

    Cons

    Management is horrible, the employees are nice but those managers are snakes, they will lie too keep themselves out of trouble. And talk bad about you. And they make you do more in your position then you should and will not compensate you. But keep you at a low salary title. But make you do higher level salary things... it’s not right but that’s the Corporate life for u

    Advice to Management

    There should be boundaries and there is a policy put in place. And just because someone has worked for the company for a long time. Does not mean they should get away with harassment no manger should talk bad about there staff too other team members.

    Pros

    The people. I consider the team I work with daily family. They are the most amazing people I've ever had the opportunity to work with.

    Cons

    Long hours- you give up your personal life to work at NAPA.

    Advice to Management

    The only thing that would make the job better would be having a life outside of work too. I love what I do and it doesn't feel like work every day.

    I have been working at Genuine Parts full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    A growing 90-year company with great culture and diverse workforce that values old-fashioned work ethics and gives its employees training and chances for advancement. 40-year careers and a global marketplace are great for those who value stability as they work their way up.

    Cons

    On boarding can take longer than at smaller firms, but is supported by in-house IT and HR staff who are dedicated and professional.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to pursue change while rewarding both older and younger highly-talented candidates across all lines of business and organizational disciplines. With so much diverse talent and both skilled and ambitious female and non-white employees already on staff, this venerable and dynastic firm has a rare opportunity (especially in the South) to serve as a model of Fortune 200 firms that grow and evolve by rewarding their...
