Pros

Meeting new people everyday, bonus program, company vehicle,expense account.

Cons

Politics, playing favorites, too much upper management. NAPA still thinks their name stands for quality, which is does not. Competitors use the exact same parts and sell them for 5%-20% less.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Take a look at how much upper management there is compared to the ground-level sales force. Automotive Aftermarket competition is getting fierce. Price is the consumers #1 priority, not the name anymore.

    Pros

    I was paid a fair amount for short term.

    Cons

    - Management exists to defend management at all cost. HR bureaucracy exists to blame the victim and sweep management's serious violations under the rug. If it isn't criminal, the company doesn't care. Management is basically full of uneducated pencil pushers that under perform.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None, they don't do anything with the right advice.
