    I have been working at American Tire full-time

    Pros

    Give me second here. OK, overall the company seems strong, benefits are average, and vacation time is good.

    Cons

    Focus is on upper management and not on customer focused personnel, which are always doing more with below average compensation. Turnover is also high with no acknowledgement or apparent plan to fix or change. Competition is allowed to grow rampantly and the course of action is 'we'll just buy you out'. No real sales planning at the corporate level on this or gaining market share other than expanding and buyouts, driving up their own price.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Refocus on the customer and employees that do as well. Help yourself understand the customer and the real sales processes in the field. Motivate the sales staff as a whole. People are better at customer service and sales when they actually care.

    I worked at American Tire full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    One of the best reasons in working here was that you didn't have a manager micro managing your area. Which could be good and bad.

    Cons

    In not having that Manager in the office it normally took days or weeks before all areas to be on the same page being that we were always pretty much traveling.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needed to be a little more organized and provide marketing managers more training.

    I have been working at American Tire full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are the best part of this job.

    Cons

    No overall corporate standards for customer service. Level of service seems to be inconsistent between individual GM's territories.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get back in touch with the end-users and the dealers who have made you strong. Continue to evolve, develop and cultivate that outstanding distribution network you control. ALL the tire manufacturers need you to get their tires to market OR you will go the way of TireRack (which is the Amazon of the tire business).

    I worked at American Tire full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The best thing about the job was the people I worked with. We had a great crew.

    Cons

    Very little work-life balance. Stress levels are very high right now and with a history of acquisitions, things are constantly changing and more is asked of everyone all the time.

    I worked at American Tire full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    benefits were the best part of the job, though they stopped the 401k match several times over the last 5 years. rules apply to a few people but it is all in who you know so be sure and focus on corporate relationships.

    Cons

    upper management is confused about what is going on in the field and have lost focus on the personal relationships between sales and customers. they take money from the workers to make upper management rich. pay cuts, less hours, less opportunity...less service for the customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need new management that has some experience in sales. Just because someone graduated college doesn't mean they can run a store with no experience.
