It is a very repetitive job, not very difficult but it is a physical job. It is customer service which implies that you will have customers that are not always the friendliest. The hardest part would most likely be the freight.
Assistant Store Manager NAPA Auto Parts (Former Employee) – Hattiesburg, MS – August 6, 2018
I really liked working with Napa. The company looks after their employees. There is no hard part of the job. I think being on time and wanting to learn and work are the most important things in any company.

Overall Genuine Parts Company is a good place to work. You will need the people around you to help you get your work done as with any other job! The culture is changing and some people are on it and some are not, a lot is expected everyday in the stores and some people help and others don't. The company offers a lot of good stuff, and good benefits! Some leadership is really good, but they tend to change pretty often. Overall it's a great place to work if you can get people behind you and motivate people, if you are not able to do those things it will not be an easy place. It's a real job, where you need to WORK to get by.
Good benefits, good people, good coworkers.
Maintenance is not always up to par on cars, and stores.
Secure job with good benefits but non competitive pay.
Dispatcher (Current Employee) – Santa Clara, CA – July 4, 2018
Friendly working environment but laborious. 8 hour days guaranteed if you work full-time. Very strict on overtime. Here is where I learned to hone my multitasking skills. Hardest part of the job was constantly moving and lifting. Most of the time understaffed and overworked.
Good medical benefits, 8 hour days guaranteed
Non competitive pay, no overtime, laborious, understaffed
Wholesale/Major Accounts Sales Manager (Current Employee) – Jackson, MS – June 18, 2018
Plenty opportunity for classroom and on the job training. You have all the freedom to succeed or fail that you are willing to take. Career advancement is a given if you don't mind making far less money than previous place holder. Biggest issue is that they let time on the job dictate salary rather than knowledge and skill.
Great learning experience, professional advancement oppurtunity within a fortune 200 company
District Sales Representative (Former Employee) – High Point, NC – June 8, 2018
Calling on customers for sales promotions. How to work with heavy duty equipment. Management was good to work with. Culture was inconsistent . Traveling gone all week or two. The different locations visited.
Customer Service Rep (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 6, 2018
This review is not based on the company as a hole; only on my work experience from the last 4 years. The job consist of a 8 hour work day; I've have learned how to answer call, email, and faxes and to get necessary information to assist customers. Due to the workplace being fast-pace; management need to communicate more and make sure everyone is on the same page. The hardest part of my job is tying to answer calls, email, and processing deference types of forms in the time aloud for each case created. The most enjoyable part of the job is talking to and assisting the customers!
Healthcare, employee discounts, and paid time off.
The time constraint to process work load and workplace communication.
Cash Application Specialist (Accounts Receivable) (Current Employee) – Duluth, GA – June 6, 2018
Great Pay and Benefits. No room for advancement! If you are looking for a job just for the money and benefits then this is the job for you. There's a lot of favoritism from management and human resources with specific employees.
Loader (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – May 28, 2018
Very fast paced. Majority of time spent working on your feet. Must be able to lift heavy objects. Fun place great co-workers. Learned a lot about distribution and manufacturing of goods. Use of heavy machinery as well.
Corporate Finance Intern (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – May 26, 2018
Great company to work for and the people really care about each other. Everyone is working hard to make Genuine Parts Succeed. Management may be a little too conservative but it doesn't hurt the company at all.
