NAPA Auto Parts

More than 85 years ago, the National Automotive Parts Association (NAPA) was created to meet America’s growing needs for an effective and reliable auto parts distribution system. Today, as the largest division of Genuine Parts Company, our Automotive Parts Group distributes automotive replacement parts, accessory items and service items throughout North America, primarily under the NAPA name.

Recognized by more than 90% of do-it-yourself customers, the NAPA brand name has come to be known for quality parts, quality service and knowledgeable people. We’re also known for creating exceptional career opportunities as well.


Military Transitioning

“We have a very large military family, including our employees and our customers who have served or are actively serving in the armed forces.”
— Gaylord Spencer, VP of Marketing, NAPA AUTO PARTS

Like you, service is what we do. But even more than that, it’s part of who we are, as people and as a company. Our greatest passion is taking care of those who place their trust in us. Maybe this is a big part of the reason that transitioning military personnel, veterans and military family members find great success in careers with us.

The very attributes – loyalty, work ethic, dedication and team work – that led to your success in the military are the same commitments and values that have formed the foundation of our success for decades.

And This is The Best Part… when you join NAPA, you’ll know that you’ve chosen to join the ranks of an industry leading company of whom you can be proud for our strong support of our nation’s military.

We support a variety of programs and initiatives that assist military veterans, reserves and their families and spouses.

“As a Marine, I learned quickly and well the value of discipline and a strong work ethic; how to use my time wisely and put everything I have into my job. When I left the reserves in 2013, I wanted to explore big companies who shared these same values, and who really supported their employees. I knew the NAPA name from being a customer and when I saw an opportunity I jumped at the chance. Just like in the Marines, at NAPA, if you’re willing to work hard, you can advance quickly. I went from Warehouse Associate to Assistant Store Manager in less than a year, and the best part is… I can’t wait to see what the future holds for me at NAPA.”

NAPA Auto Parts “Give Back and Get Back” Campaign

This program supports the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (IFHF), a not-for-profit organization that serves United States military personnel, wounded or injured in service to our nation, and their families.

Each July, NAPA Auto Parts and NAPA AutoCare Centers offer customers mail-in rebates of up to $25 for every battery, alternator, and starter they purchase during the month. Customers can choose to donate all or a portion of these rebates, and NAPA Auto Parts will also donate $1 to the IFHF for any redeemed rebate. NAPA Auto Parts will also donate $2 for qualifying installations at NAPA AutoCare Centers and preferred installers.

One hundred percent of all funds raised during the “Get Back and Give Back” Campaign will go directly to the IFHF. Last year the campaign raised $1 million, making NAPA one of the single largest donors to the Fund. This year, NAPA aims to exceed the million dollar mark. The proceeds will go to the IFHF’s goal of raising $100 million to build new National Intrepid Center of Excellence (NICoE) Satellite Centers that will be focused on diagnosis and treatment of PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injuries.


Imagine going to work every day knowing that you’re part of something special; part of something that matters and that makes a real difference. Imagine working for a company whose reputation for excellence paves the way for more success. Imagine being part of a winning team where people don’t just work ‘jobs’, they build long-lasting, highly-satisfying careers.

This is the Best Part – this place isn’t imaginary. All of this and more is the reality we’ve created at Genuine Parts Company. GPC is so much more than a collection of individuals sharing tasks. We are a true family, sharing a commitment to achieve our common goals. Every day, we strive to:

  • Be the Employer of Choice for our Associates
