NAPA Auto Parts Retail Stores

Everything we pride ourselves on as a company is fully represented in our stores, by each of our employees. Every aspect of our industry plays a major role each business day: Purchasing, distribution, marketing, merchandising, and customer service.

NAPA Auto Parts Stores are strategically important to us as we continue to evolve as a business. In the past, we mostly focused on the wholesale aspect of the parts business, but through improved locations and up-to-date presentation techniques, we are now trying to capture a larger share of the retail market.

Several job opportunities exist within our stores. Drivers deliver parts from the store to the end-use customer. Counter Persons assist customers on the phone and in-store, to ensure they leave with the right part from our 320,000-item inventory. Outside Salespeople represent one or more stores and call on customers within a three-mile radius of the store. Assistant Managers help the Store Manager ensure that the store exceeds customer expectations in every situation. Besides having opportunities for promotion to larger-volume stores, management employees can look forward to potential growth at the Regional or Divisional levels.

    I have been working at NAPA Auto Parts part-time (More than 3 years)


    Great pay for a current college student. $17/hour pays for many things most college students cannot afford to do


    working in the warehouse is hard work. some days we might move 20 pallets of break rotors which weighs in somewhere around 40,000 pounds. its hard to go study at the library after a full day of work.

    Advice to Management

    Currently looking into moving into their internship program. Currently am a business student so there are many openings for me in the future.

    Executive Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Fresno, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NAPA Auto Parts (Fresno, CA) in December 2016.


    A lady called me we did a little bit of back and forth calling cause she left me voice message and I left her voice message. When I finally got a hold of her she ask me a few questions over the phone. She ask why I wanted to work at NAPA and ask why I thought I qualify for the Executive Management Trainee. Then she set up an interview date with me and told me the name of the person I will be interviewing with.

    Interview Questions

    • At the interview I was interviewed by a man. The lady who called me was there in the room taking notes, but she did not ask me a single question it was the man who asked all the questions. Here are some of the questions he ask me.

      1. Why are you applying with NAPA?
      2. Are you willing to relocate?
      3. What are some of the highlights in your life?
      4. Why are you applying for this position?
      5. Why do you want to leave your current job?
      6. Is there room for promotion in your current job?
      7. Is there any questions you have for me?

      He ask me more questions, but I don't really remember all the questions.
