Fast pace , good environment good coworkers. Overall it is a good company to work for .
Counter Sales (Current Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMay 20, 2019
Good company to work for . Good benefits . Pay is not equal to all counter workers . I believe that being bilingual you should have a little advantage ( in pay ) being the fact that most customers are Spanish speaking individuals . And need more assistance in matching up parts or getting the correct ones for their job .

ITSM Specialist (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAMay 15, 2019
Appreciate the opportunity to work for this company. The leadership was in flux while I was there, but my understanding is there is a strong IT-focused direction now in place.

Poor Upper Management Skills
Leave Management Specialist (Former Employee) –  Marietta, GAMay 12, 2019
Overworked, under appreciated working in a dept that was poorly created. They need new experienced talent in upper mgt starting with Shared Services Sen Director. Poor decisions created a leave dept that’s out of compliance. Turn over is insane due to poor treatment. Basically your not a Specialist. You’re a micro managed specialist who takes calls in an inbound call center environment in addition to high impossible expectations of the job itself. Upper Management doesn’t even know their own policies & never follows what’s in writing on the policy. By far the worse place I’ve ever worked at a contractor. They use several agencies to fill Leave roles all with different pay per hour. They will low ball you! Don’t take less than $23 an hour! Current management needs house cleaning in itself. Overworked and only talks permanent positions to increase morale. If you enjoy the twilight zone, working in this place is for you!
Pros
Treats from vendors like cookie donuts bagels
Cons
Micromanaged call center

Great Company to work for
Finance (Current Employee) –  Duluth, GAApril 22, 2019
The company in itself is awesome to work for. There are a ton of benefits and perks outside of the normal health and 401k. The only issue is, the level and professionalism of management seems to vary greatly and they could really make or break ones opinion of the company and experience one had as an employee.
Pros
Flexible with time, ability to work remotely
Cons

IT Manager (Former Employee) –  Atlanta, GAApril 9, 2019
Not a progressive organization. Culture is challenging. Organization does not adapt well to the changing environments. Management needs to commit to training and employee development.

Terrible management at the Distribution Center, particularly the Sales Manager. Unscrupulous and employs 19th century mgmt tactics. However, most store owners are good people.

IT Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  Norcross, GAMarch 7, 2019
GPC is a great place to work. It's a place with plenty of stability and many people there stay long term. The people I worked with were very friendly and helpful, there is a large learning curve but the managers are patient and understanding. There is a great work-life balance as well.
Pros
Great work/life balance
Cons
Turning away from remote work

Manager (Current Employee) –  South St. Paul, MNMarch 5, 2019
GPC was definitely a great experience. By showing initiative and staying busy and being willing to learn, I was able to move up the ladder from counter person, to running my own Integrated Business Solution location.
Pros

Cons
Communication with upper management was patchy, including HR

The summary says it all.

There was a general lack of direction. Some ideas. But no concept of how to get there. Overall, very frustrating experience.

Starts from the top
Warehouse (Former Employee) –  NJJanuary 31, 2019
Slightly above average warehouse pay in general, but this needs to be raised nationally. Problem start from the top, meaning, very little interaction. Dock/surrounding areas has close to zero heating elements in winter, it gets COLD, and close to zero AC in the summer. Feels like there isn't enough workers, or the management is skewed, or pretty much certain veteran workers just don't care. Senior workers have it easy, very little demand - holds other workers back. Management at the supervisory level is cool, warehouse management- decent, upper management seems elitist. Warehouse workers HAVE to come in on snow days, upper management just doesn't show up. OK environment. System needs to be updated. Unionized, so workers slack off and don't care. Expect to be on your feet and walking 5+ miles easily everyday.
Pros
Not a ton of micro management, OK benefits, decent hours for most full time employees (m-f)
Cons
difficult to move up, office management neglects warehouse, no space for freight (its a warehouse, you need space!), favoritism

The company culture was very family oriented and fast paced. I was a very big fan of being able to have some freedom at work to do things in a way that you wanted.

Napa Auto Parts (Current Employee) –  Salt Lake City, UTJanuary 28, 2019
as long as you keep up with your orders and follow what needs to be done you'll be ok and always watch for damaged goods cause sometime they get across. lunch is usually the fast paced time cause everyone usually comes on break to get car parts. at the end of the day it always nice to know you have help someone in a jam with there car
Pros
