Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  TexasJuly 19, 2016
Production meeting
typical day stock new freight according to workbench( up to million dollars in parts every 2-3 days ) hardly no space to stock items, 1400 items COMPANY STANDARD per shift per stock associate. Managers watch all RF scanners database. Bird Dogs Production overlook Team Leaders .
upper management on all different pages. senior workers deceptive .
starting pay 10.75 raises every 90 days based on management review top off pay 14.75 . New hires train themselves and to meet standard is a dog eat dog world everyone is for self when trying to meet organizational goals. your paycheck and $5 gift cards is all you get for hard work and making the company effective . going the extra mile is a understatement to a company making 60 million a month 8-10 Billion a year.

Dock Workers 10.75
Re-class( Returns Department) 10.75
Truck Drivers: CDL
Order Pullers 10.75
Shipping and Receiving Senior Employers only 10 years +
Pros
hour lunch off weekends

Bad management, work/life balance is poor

Business Analyst (Current Employee) –  AtlantaMarch 15, 2017
GPC is a great Company with strong financials. Its not your fly by night operator. GPC values tenure and many colleagues have been here all their lifetime. The current president of APG started as a delivery driver, that says a lot about culture.
Pros
Very stable solid company
Cons
old fashioned and conservative inertia.

Decent Retailer
Former Employee (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZDecember 12, 2016
Be prepared to work lots of hours if salaried. Six days is expected and utilization of all vacation time is frowned upon, even though it is a use it or lose it scenario. Overall the company is solid and was a fun environment, but the expectation that work is first everything else is last is unfortunate. Saw many managers and other salaried employees work excessive hours and burn out quick.

Benefits are decent if full time.

Good work, okay people
Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJanuary 16, 2017
My typical day involved making a plan for the day for my associates and ensuring all cut times for trucks leaving were met. The work was interesting, but the people in the facility were duplicitous and the upper management didn't seem to care when my crew went from 7 people down to 2, while maintaining that the goals still needed to be met all the same.

Staff Accountant (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GAFebruary 9, 2017
Great group of welcoming and appreciative people. Challenging work with exposure to new applications. Hardest part of the job are the long hours during month-end and year-end close. Most enjoyable part of the job is the team-members 'can do' attitude.

Customer Care Representative (Current Employee) –  Saint Louis Park, MNAugust 7, 2016
Very few advancement opportunities. Mentoring employees is not a priority. You are expected to show up, do your job, keep your head down. Benefits are very good. Processes are bogged down and systems don't communicate well without intense manual entry.

No talking allowed. 1 hour lunch. Long work day.
Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  New Kingston, PAAugust 1, 2016
As with many companies today their turnover is very high. In the 8 months I worked there I saw them hire at least 30 people, that's not good considering the warehouse only needs about 40 people to be fully staffed.
Most people quit within the first month, some sooner. A few got fired for low production, and a couple that worked on the loading dock were overwhelmed by the stress.
The company that is contracted to deliver the parts has a supervisor who has free reign of the loading dock and would regularly cuss at the loaders, and make derogatory statements towards them. Management was notified about this a couple times, and threatened to make this guy stay out of the building but that never happened.
There are 6 managers for about 40 people. Often when the loading dock was behind due to work flow, one manger in particular would cross his arms and stare at us while we worked.
Typically at 6pm everyday the temps (as some managers called them) would cut cardboard and fill the compacter. At 8pm everybody was allowed to leave. Except the loaders. Some days I stayed past 9pm to finish loading the trucks.
One day I decided to punch out with everybody else. The next day I was escorted to the HR managers office to explain myself. When I complained I could see it turned into a "me against them" situation, and I promptly resigned.
The truth has to be told so hopefully I can save someone else from damaging their resume.
This company needs to learn the benefits of having happy employees instead of continuing failed management practices that causes high turnover,
  more... low production, and long hours.  less
Pros
You get a paycheck every 2 weeks
Cons
1 hour mandatory lunch off the clock, 2 10 minute breaks, On ten hour day you work 4 hours straight before 10 minute break, Very few people are happy to be there including some managers.

Manager (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INFebruary 24, 2017
There is no room for advancement in this company. It's a decent job for retires or college students. Because the advancement is horrible, the pay scales are not what they should be in that field.
