Job Description

We are so much more than a Parts Store and we are looking for even more great talent to join our NAPA family! As a NAPA Automotive Parts Specialist for an IBS, you are looked at as the "face of NAPA". You don't have to be able to tear a motor down and rebuild it (however, if you can, that's awesome) - but we do need you to have a background and knowledge of automotive parts. A NAPA Automotive Parts Specialist is a great opportunity whether you are looking to spend your career with us as a Parts Specialist or you just want to get your foot in the door with us to explore other careers at some point - We welcome you!

What is NAPA Integrated Business Solutions (IBS):

We manage Parts so businesses don't have to! The NAPA Integrated Business Solutions (IBS) program is a partnership with any company that needs on-site assistance running a highly efficient parts department within their business. In other words, "a Store inside a Store/Company" We partner with some exciting places: ground support maintenance stations for major airlines, government vehicle maintenance stations, utility companies, construction companies, car dealerships, and more. NAPA provides parts management, supply chain expertise, fantastic customer care, that serves our customer's efficiencies and bottom line when we step in to manage their parts departments.

  • Have gained your parts experience by working in the automotive industry or have gained your experience tinkering with/repairing cars & trucks through the year
  • You are willing to learn all things automotive if you don't have a background in automotive parts.

  • High School Diploma or GED. Technical or Trade school courses or degrees.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills

And if you have this, even better (not a deal-breaker if you don't):

  • Background and/or passion for the automotive industry, heavy equipment, farm industry, diesel, marine, or dealership.
  • Experience in a parts store, auction, retail store, auto body/collision
  • Knowledge of cataloging AND/OR inventory management systems, a plus
  • Entirely customer-centric (external/internal)
  • ASE Certifications - we will provide the opportunity to become certified

What's in it for you:

  • Awesome people and brand
  • Competitive Pay
  • Outstanding health benefits and 401K
  • Stable company. Fortune 200 with a "family" feel
