    I worked at NAPA Auto Parts full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Job security: It would take a lot to get fired from this company
    Benefits: Decent retirement and benefits program
    Employee discount: You can purchase auto parts for roughly 50% off depending on the product

    Cons

    Stale culture: I worked at headquarters and most of the people were 15-20 years older than me. There was no camaraderie. The environment was very stuffy.
    Low salary: Relative to market, very low salaries. Bonus also only came once in three years for my group.
    Limited growth opportunity: Everything moves slow. The company doesn't make big moves and people stay a long time. This leads to limited opportunities internally.
    Poor review structure: I would assume the reviews lead to some form of direct pay increases, because everyone gets horrible reviews. We were graded in multiple categories on a scale of 1-5. I don't know if I ever got a 5 in anything meaningful, and averaged less than 3 overall. I spoke with others who had worked there a long time and they said they always get less than 3 as well. I consider less than 3/5 to be an unsatisfactory employee.
