At NAPA, we firmly believe that the momentum we've built in the automotive industry is a direct result of our investment in our employees. To maintain the strength of our company and to drive our business, we want to make sure that we hire the best people, and give them the best career opportunities and experiences. As we speed off into the future, we want to make sure that our employees are right there with us. That's why we offer competitive wages, and comprehensive benefits to those who are eligible.
When you're out on the road you'll see cars of different makes, models, colors, shapes and sizes. No vehicle is the same, but they all have the same basic function: to get us where we need to go. The same is true with our employees at NAPA. We may be different shapes, sizes, colors, races, religions, and nationalities, but we all work together to continue to drive NAPA where it needs to go. As we step on the gas and accelerate our business, we know that employing a diverse workforce is not only the socially responsible thing to do, but it will also give us new perspectives on who we are as a company and where we are headed.
In accordance with the law, we provide equal employment opportunities to all. We will not consider an applicant's or employee's race, color, sex, religion, nationality, age, pregnancy, disability, military status, status as a veteran, marital status, or sexual orientation in any decision relating to employment, separation from employment, or promotion. Additionally, employees and management are prohibited from acting in ways that harass or degrade an employee or guest based on their protected status. Such actions are severely punished without exception.
