    I have been working at Les Schwab Tire Centers

    Pros

    Keeps you in shape, crew takes pride in their work and holds each other accountable. Management has promoted from within and has spent time in the bays, not just someone with a degree and no experience. Customer comes first, rewarding to solve problems and ensure they leave happy.

    Cons

    Physically demanding, will ruin your body if you stay in the bays or on the road for a prolonged time period. Lots of politics... not unlike most places I'm sure, and you work with a small crew of the same people every day, so there would probably be conflict with any work environment similar to this. Only way to promote is to move to unknown location (minimum of 3 times to be a manager) of corporate's choice, you cannot pick and choose which stores you get, especially in the first two tiers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None really, I respect that they started at the bottom and worked their way up.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Les Schwab Tire Centers in February 2015.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. Received a call back within a week & set up an interview for a week later.
    The interview went very smoothly. Although I was extremely nervous, I clearly had no reason to be. They not only want to get to know you as an employee, but as a person in general, which was very refreshing compared to other interviews I have had in the past. Very profressional & admirable establishment that I couldnt be more happy to become a part of.
