    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NAPA Auto Parts.

    Interview

    This was an absolute joke to say the least. Waist of time. Upon receiving my resume, Jared Feichter emailed me about a job in Muncie, IN. and asked me to stop by the store and fill out an application, which I did. While there, I was told to give my resume to Troy, the assistant manager of the store. While waiting to give Troy my application, I overheard his entire phone call with Jared. He was told not to interview me but he asked me several questions anyway. When asked if I had any experience, I said not in a parts store but I was NEVER allowed to explain what my experience was. After a few questions, I was cut off and told that I would be called back for an interview with Jared. To this day, nobody has called, which is fine because after seeing how little the employees respected their manager and I saw how poorly trained their managers were, I want no part of it!

    What they didn't allow me to say was that I am capable of rebuilding engines from the ground up and I also am able to track wiring issues. As a matter of fact I know more about the inside of engine than most people. I know parts on a vehicles and I also can track electrical and electronic issues, the correct way. I don't really need the money but love to work and talk to people. This just gave me the nudge to open a new shop of my own and I began searching for space this week.

    This is the bottom of the barrel management and from what I hear, it doesn't pay well.

    Business Development Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NAPA Auto Parts (Saint Paul, MN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Great phone interview. Asked probing questions and described the position. Expressed interest and explained next steps. No communication was sent after. Several emails were sent asking for an update with zero response.

    I have no idea why anyone would simply fail to communicate. Obviously, they were not interested in me for the position. The utter lack of sending a simple decline email demonstrates a significant lack of professionalism and basic people skills. What a horrible experience.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NAPA Auto Parts (Columbus, OH) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had multiple interviews with different people. It was evident at the end of the third interview that there was no consensus on the position requirements. It appeared that after a series of interviews the position changed from generalist to recruiter. I also observed tension among the managers. The company's work environment was dated and would be hard to inspire creativity and inspiration. This company will have a hard time attracting and retaining good talent. No much workforce diversity.
