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

    Pros

    First year, raises every 3 months, good benefits

    Cons

    Management does not care about people in their departments but instead how they can look better to the Executives and above. Not sure how some executives are still there when most of their department is gone due to the executive. Best part about leaving was the stress was left behind.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees health instead of what kind of numbers you can receive from sales. Employees working late and on weekends and no time with family. Family life is important to everyone.

    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 is a joke. The CISO knows nothing about security and the only reason he has the title is because of his white privilege. This organization has no diversity when it comes to upper management and executives. All of the people of indian decent are either programmers or developers. The majority of the white men are upper management leaders who are not really leaders but more dictators. This company wastes some much money on products they dont need. They will crucify anyone who they feel isn't GPC material. It's so many more than I am able to type so i will leave it at that.

    "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.
