While working with Napa I was given the opportunity to learn quite a bit, although through a mis-communication from management i was let go, and the current manager refused to believe he was even remotely responsible. I do regret that i am no longer employed with the company, but i don't regret not having to work under the same manager.
Flexible schedule if you make requests in advance. pay was good and raises came quarterly.
Work is challenging and exciting, but management is obstuctive
iSeries Developer (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – March 17, 2018
The work and projects I have been involved in over the years at GPC have been exciting and enjoyable , however the management frequently assigns deadlines without looking into the effort involved.
The company has downsized its iSeries development staff yet at the same time our Director has promised upper management of delivery of major projects that we are not staffed to handle.The QA group has been downsized to 1 person whom we have to share with 4-5 development projects, we are told that the developers will take turns QA testing other developers work. But at the same time no time is allocated to developers for this work.
This results in developers being allocated 100 to 150%.
The non-managerial employees are great to work with and are the only redeeming feature of the company.
Most are great to work with, Projects are interesting
Management is slightly better than clueless about day to day activities

I gave 250 percent everyday and still got yelled at and threatened comstantly by management. I constantly felt like I would lose my job even though I never did anything wrong. They made things up that were not true that I did to get me fired. I am not the only one they have done this to. The pay was great, the job was great, the employees were great but the management was horrible. I was stressed out constantly, was sick constantly and had panic attacks constantly. I really wanted to keep my job because I was scared of what would happen if I lost it, but losing that job was the best thing that has happened to me.

I have been with this company approximately 5 years. The stressful tone that the management sets is very unnecessary. You only get two personal days days no sick days. I get 2 weeks of vacation for the entire year. The opportunity for advancement is very slim depending on whose face you are in. Your work wont speak for you.
End of Lease Coordinator (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 26, 2018
The company used to care about their employees and the families of the employees. Now all they care about is the share holders and their bonuses. Management, at least for my current team, seems to focus on helping those who have consistently broken company policies and it is frustrating.
unfortunately cannot think of any
no room for advancement, low morale, no support from upper management
Manager (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – February 20, 2018
It is difficult for this company to retain younger talent due to the inability to diversify. It is also difficult for executives to promote protected classes. In addition, the company overall is not very progressive so many of the processes in place are behind over a decade. Work-life balance does not exist unless you are well-liked. There is a lot of favoritism and special favors in the background. If you are a protected class, be prepared to face a lot of challenges if you decide to work for NAPA.
Support and education for leaders, decent pay, great benefits package.
no work-life balance, processes and programs are outdated, customers are frustrated with inefficiencies.
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Jacksonville, FL – February 13, 2018
Working in management you are required to 50+ hours a week. This includes weekends and holidays. Very few to no opportunity for advancement. Depending on location and staff, it can be a fun place to work. Just know that it may take a long time to move up.
Cash Applications Posting Administrator (Former Employee) – Duluth, GA – January 24, 2018
Napa pays good with great benefits. They are laying people off due to the automation of several job duties. So, now everyone is uneasy because they don't feel as though they have job security, which is causing them to lose "good" employees.
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – Palmer, AK – January 4, 2018
Wish I could go back sometimes, but I moved on to a different career path. Great place to work all around, the only downside: it's "feast or famine" there; you'll have as much down-time as you do busy-time.
