Work At NAPA Auto Parts

ERIC CASSIDY

Eric Cassidy joined NAPA as an assistant manager. His good work ethic and positive attitude quickly propelled him into a position as a store manager, overseeing the daily operations at the main store in Atlanta. “The most rewarding thing about working at NAPA is the ability to build my career,” says Eric. “I could become a general manager or a district manager. I can move to the distribution side, or I could even move into IT,” says Eric. He’s seen many people build their careers at NAPA. Some have started as drivers and moved up to store manager and beyond.

Our retail stores are an important part of the NAPA system. They’re where we connect with the people who need us most. Every day, Eric helps build and maintain relationships with wholesale and retail customers. “Everybody knows each other by name – or even by voice,” says Eric. That’s part of what makes NAPA successful, “We know our stuff, we have the parts, and our customers can count on us the first time.”

“I started out not knowing a lot about parts,” said TJ Whitt. But that’s changed since becoming a driver for NAPA. His managers and coworkers make sure he is always learning, keeping him on track to grow as an employee, and giving him the skills to share KNOW HOW with the customers. Since TJ works directly with the customers he understands that having a knowledgeable team in place is what keeps the customers calling.

Communication and teamwork are essential at NAPA AUTO PARTS. “We all get along really well,” says TJ. In fact, many of his friends work at NAPA. He is proud of his team and the reputation that NAPA has built – it’s a great work environment. That’s one of the many reasons TJ is happy to be at NAPA AUTO PARTS. The career opportunities are another reason. “I hope to move up to counter, then become an assistant manager and one day have my own store,” says TJ.

DEMOND VINET

“When you come out here and do your job 120%, then you will be successful at a Distribution Center,” says Demond Vinet. He speaks from experience. Demond started his career loading trucks at a NAPA Distribution Center and he’s quickly moved through the ranks to become an assistant stockroom manager. At a Distribution Center, you can take your career in many different directions.

Distribution Centers play an important role in keeping NAPA running strong. “We supply everyone around here. All the AutoCare Centers – everyone with a blue NAPA logo,” says Demond. When you work here, each day is different. Demond is constantly on the move, working with his team, and taking on the daily challenges. His drive and attitude are what make our Distribution Centers successful. “I come to work happy every day,” says Demond, “and if I can rub off on one person, then I’ve done a good deed.”

Whitney Swingle is currently a product manager at NAPA Headquarters, but she started her career through one of several of our management training programs. The programs train future NAPA employees to run NAPA stores, work in operations, or work in distribution. Whitney’s program taught her to work with wholesale customers, and enabled her to learn the NAPA system, inside and out.

The training program was a perfect opportunity for Whitney to accelerate her career. Before working at NAPA, she managed one store in a different industry. “The career opportunities available after the training programs end are limitless,” says Whitney. By taking her talent to NAPA and applying it to one of the management trainee programs she was able to set herself up for rewarding job opportunities that would elevate her career. Whitney says, “Your first step outside your training program is just the beginning. From there you can go anywhere within the company.”

Why used-car loans are clunkers

AnnaMariaAndriotis

Consumers shopping for a used car worry they’ll end up with a lemon, but they are more likely to be saddled with a clunker-like loan.

Used-car buyers accounted for 62% of all the car loans originated during the second quarter of this year, according to data from credit bureau Experian. And these borrowers are driving away with interest rates that can be double what they would pay on a new-car loan. They also likely owe a lot more on the loan than what the car is worth.

Interest rates on used-car loans averaged 8.56% during the second quarter, compared with 4.46% for new cars, according to Experian. But a closer look at the average rates charged by credit score brackets shows that borrowers with the poorest credit scores end up paying a lot more when they buy a used car rather than a new one. Consumers with near-perfect credit received a 3.77% rate on average for a used-car loan, which was one percentage point higher than what they would pay for a new-car loan. Meanwhile, consumers with the poorest credit scores ended up with an average rate of 17.72%, more than four percentage points higher than what they’d pay on a new car loan.

These borrowers end up paying thousands of dollars in extra interest. On an $18,000 loan for a used car (roughly the average amount borrowed) at a 17.72% rate with a six-year repayment period (a typical duration), the monthly payment is $407.70, compared with $365.24 for the same loan on a new car with a 13.41% rate. The borrower with the used-car loan ends up paying almost $3,060 more in interest over the life of the loan.

Credit analysts say used-car buyers tend to have poorer credit — which is why they end up paying more. Borrowers who signed up for a used-car loan in the second quarter had an average credit score of 660, versus an average score of 749 for new-car loans, according to Experian. (These scores are based on Experian’s own scoring system, which ranges from 330 to 900.)

5 cars the richest Americans are buying

Which cars are the most popular among residents in the 25 wealthiest zip codes in the U.S. MarketWatch s Jim Jelter says it may come as a surprise, but the most affluent buyers aren’t shelling out for Bentleys or Ferraris. (Photo: AP)

Lenders incur bigger losses on used-car loans. The reason: More subprime borrowers tend to sign up for these loans, and they default more often. Net losses — that’s the loss lenders are left with after borrowers stop paying the loan and the car is repossessed and resold — exceed 7% of the total loan amount among subprime borrowers, most of whom sign up for a used-car loan, says Sanjay Wahi, a vice president and senior analyst at Moody’s Investors Service, covering bonds backed by car loans. In comparison, net losses are no more than 3% for prime borrowers, most of whom sign up for new car loans, he says.

To be sure, consumer experts often recommend purchasing a used car over a new vehicle. New cars tend to lose around 20% of their value when they are driven off the lot while a used car depreciates at a slower pace. In addition, car loans are often a bad deal whether the borrower is getting a new or used car. To begin with, they are paying interest on an asset that is depreciating. And in most cases, they end up underwater, meaning that they owe more on the loan than the car is worth from the moment they get the loan.

Used-car buyers, however, find themselves deeper underwater than their counterparts. On average, they owe 131.1% on their used-car loan compared with 110.5% for new cars, according to Experian. On a $20,000 car with 100% financing, for instance, a used-car borrower would owe $26,000 while a new-car borrower who would owe $22,100.

That’s partly because used-car buyers tend to purchase more add-ons when they buy a car. For instance, most new cars are sold with a warranty included, whereas warranties for used cars often cost extra. Their cost can be added to the dollar amount that is being financed.

The longer-term problem for these borrowers is that they could find themselves in a perpetual cycle where they are constantly underwater. This can happen if they want to sell their car and the price they get does not cover their remaining loan amount.
