    I have been working at Discount Tire part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It can be pretty fun if you have good managers, you learn a lot about wheels and tires, you get to see a lot of really nice cars, and the pay is pretty good. They also give bonuses after you have been there for a while and they also provide pretty good insurance. Most of the time you get pretty good hours, they are willing to work with you on your schedule.

    Cons

    Managers can be the worst people in earth if you are stupid and/or slow, it is very high pressured to get as many cars moved in and out in an hour as possible

    Advice to Management

    Please stop yelling at my friends😢 haha no the managers generally do a good job at my store

    I worked at Discount Tire full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great at cultivating people and building a winning atmosphere that is a brotherhood once you enter it.

    Cons

    The managers vary from store to store and the attitudes change with it. You can end up getting burned out and discouraged very quickly with the wrong manager compared to others.

    Advice to Management

    Pick out the energetic and young to build up. Those guys are hungry and willing to do what it takes compared to some of the older guys who are complacent and comfortable.

    Pros

    This job is a lot of hard labor, but it is a great company to work for. Great people to work for

    Cons

    It is a lot of hard labor, long hours and not a lot of pay. Managers kind of suck too

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more and hire more people. It's too hard on your guys when you over work them 50+ hours a week

    Pros

    Always on your feet and always busy. Had great management and a friendly work environment.

    Cons

    Can get very hot here in Texas, but not much of an issue if you are use to working outside.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of employees specially in times of heat (if that applies to location) provides techs with plenty of water. Provide an open door policy for employees.

    Pros

    Even though the processes are very structured, it's a good place to be able to be comfortable with your abilities. When given the chance, you can truly feel the impact of your expertise by helping a customer who just needs to feel taken care of.

    Cons

    Hours, hours, hours. Time with family is limited, especially at a busy location. If you have kids or plan on having kids understand that getting home as late as 8-9-10 pm is possible. The company truly values its managers and makes it difficult to achieve personal growth especially when THEY are the ones collecting the checks while YOU actively run stuff!

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue! Recognize those who are assets and stop letting their concerns fall on deaf ears. Too many people are losing faith in management. Too much down hill leadership to achieve indifferent results.
