Learning about your transportation was interesting
Auto Parts Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Virginia Beach, VA – October 23, 2013
I learned about the different parts of a car and how they perform to ensure the car is working properly. Management wasn't the best i have been around but it worked. The hardest part of the job is driving in inclement weather while still trying to deliver the parts in a timely manner. I really enjoyed driving around to different businesses seeing and learning new things.

HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGER GENUINE PARTS COMPANY (Current Employee) – Billings, MT – April 19, 2016
I have loved working at Genuine Parts Company for the last 15 years. I am challenged every day in some positive way. I am surrounded by hard working people whom I admire greatly. I am proof that there are great opportunities for women with Genuine Parts Company.
The environment is terrible. The upper management and warehouse managers are completely worthless. Only chance at moving up in the company is to be friends with managers. Moral is so low, nobody in the place is ever in a good mood.
Cashier/Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Westbrook, ME – April 12, 2016
For the most part the job is ok. I do not like the idea of wondering if I have to work on Sunday's. The perks are nice, monthly lunches. Do not like new hours. Staying open to nine is a waist of money and time. They need to focus 100% on fleet. Never do maintenance on them big mistake.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Escalon, CA – April 9, 2016
I enjoyed working for the company. The management style was hard to work with. One person as store manager and regional manager. My co-workers were great! very friendly and helpful. I had a flat tire one night after work. They helped me change the tire in the parking lot and used one of the floor model jacks to lift my truck. I made some good friends and I will cherish them all.
free automotive advise with out being worried about being conned.
It was a friendly environment with great leadership allowing for many opportunities. I enjoyed the environment and went from being part time to full time in less than two months. The management really took notice of employees who worked hard.

Delivery Driver (Current Employee) – Idaho Falls, ID – March 17, 2016
Putting away freight, and making sure parts get out as quickly as possible. Learning new places and where all the parts go in the store is something very challenging, but starts to come naturally fairly quick.
