I worked at GCR Tire Centers full-time for more than a year

Pros

Fair pay scale giving the industry standard. Thought I was going to retire with this company. Coal industry and the Obama Administration too this job as well as many others.

Cons

Management had no backbone. Although I was the assistant or associate, being called both, and being new to the industry had a lot to learn. Training in this management job as well as the next was scarce to none. But if called I would work for them again.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I started with this company in management; since I have been in such a position for several years.

    I have been working at GCR Tire Centers

    Pros

    GCR is a Strong Company that is owned by Bridgestone Americas so it is stable.
    Good Benefits come with being owned by Bridgestone.
    Good Products also come with being owned by Bridgestone.
    Most of the people you work with are friendly and willing to help you.

    Cons

    I am not sure GCR would be able to make it as a stand alone company without Bridgestone.
    Mid level managers tend to look out for their own best interests.
    Poor training is provided. What training there is is done through Bridgestone.
    Little direction is given by mid level management in regards to performance until they decide to terminate someone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GCR needs to really look at their training procedures. This is the major weakness of the company and leads to a high rate of turnover.
