I worked at Fountain Tire

Pros

1. Not too much overtime expected
2. Product discounts for employees

Cons

1. Lack of training makes it very difficult to do your job well
2. Extremely high expectations and workload despite little support from busy middle managers
3. Unclear communication from management; lack of feedback in between annual reviews
4. Stagnant pay/compensation structure if you
5. Little opportunity to have a voice in your career
6. Performance not well tied to pay

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Feedback that ties to performances should be given in between annual years; corporate handbook says this should happen, but it does not. A major training program needs to be implemented. Demands are constantly changing giving employees no time to react and managers no time to train. Review the pay structure - if someone is at "market pay" yet has done really well all year, their pay should not be the same as the year before. Communication needs to be vastly improved as project goals and manager's expectations are not clear.
