PROCUREMENT SPECIALIST (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 11 May 2018
Although I enjoyed working at NAPA I was unable to return after my maternity leave as it wasn't the correct fit for our new family. The management was very helpful during my time there, and the staff was also very easy to work and get along with. The salary was fair, and the bonus' were definitely beneficial.
Parts Technician (Former Employee) – Okotoks, AB – 31 May 2018
Loved working here. Mike the owner is amazing great leader and very compromising. Only thing i can say bad about this place is if you are looking for a job to move up with this isnt the place not a lot of room at all for advancement.
parts driver (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 23 May 2018
Good people but not very good management.Often expect you to speed and be unsafe to get parts to customers quick rather then safe, shorty vehicles, most would not pass inspection, hazardous work environment, pay not enough compared to how much they ask of you. They are clearly more about the money then the employees when there should be a balance
good co workers, on the road, time flies
bad management, unsafe, low rate of pay, no benefits
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Kamloops, BC – 11 May 2018
This job is a good starting job for those just graduating. I loved the employees and management. My favorite part of the job was interacting with the individuals who ordered the parts - such friendly customers, and a great atmosphere!
Senior Counterman/Supervisor/key holder (Former Employee) – Mississauga, ON – 1 May 2018
Not a bad company to work for provided you work for a corporate store, I would personally avoid the associate stores, they don't take care of their employees anywhere near as well as a corporate store.
No real room for advancement, they claim you can work your way up but you really cant unless you are related to higher ups or friends with them,
You typically have to leave the company and then come back to get a raise, they don't pay all that well and typically pay even less than they used to considering they phased out all the actual countermen and replaced them with their tams system that still doesn't really work.

driver,dispatcher,warehouse person (Former Employee) – St. Albert, AB, edmonton, ab – 9 April 2018
i wasted 8 years working for these idiots. management are complete morons, staff are useless and know that their job is secure no matter how lazy they are. i was treated like garbage by management in every capacity.
great pay if you're lazy
if you take pride in your work, you'll be angry everyday
PARTS MANAGER (Former Employee) – Niagara Falls, ON – 20 February 2018
The team overall was pleasant but there were a few long-term employees that were happy to do the bare minimum, which negatively impacted the overall culture. I would have remained in this position longer if there was room to advance.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Woodbridge, ON – 5 February 2018
I started with Napa the summer after completing my first year of university. Everyone was very polite and friendly. I started out in Woodbridge and now I work at the Brampton location. I still talk to all the friends I made at Woodbridge whenever I go to pick up parts from that location.
Purchaser/Counter Sales (Former Employee) – Valleyview, AB – 15 January 2018
A typical day at work was managing customers at the front desk and taking phone calls. Interacting with the shipping/receiving, colleagues and customers, merchandising, reviewing and purchasing inventory along with banter. I learned that management was only at the top as if the owner made all the decisions. The culture was expecting mistakes by the distribution center that delivered our customers supplies. The hardest part was managing purchasing and replenishing stock while dealing with customers at the front desk. The most enjoyable was the relationships with the customers and staff. The majority were very easy and pleasant to deal with up here in the North. Small town where everyone is family.
Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 3 January 2018
