    Family values with no glass ceiling to your career....

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsYou are not a number here. If you have good work ethic and drive you will be taken care of. I have been here for over a decade and have no regrets. If you want a particular job all you have to do is earn it. It always feels good to tell people where you work and not worry about others bad experiences. Benefits are best in the industry as well.

    ConsNone really worth speaking of.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAlways remember you have smart people around you. You hired them. Don't forget to ask the people in the trenches their thoughts.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Experience

    Warehouse Operations (Current Employee) Ellenwood, GA

    ProsWorked hard, great people to work with. Interacted with the corporate and warehouse personell and never had any issues. It was a very friendly group. Tom Money is a great boss. Chris in the warehouse is a great teacher. I interned with another college kid and he was cool too.

    ConsLots of overtime, but you make great money.
    Wish it was closer to home (and not so far south)
    Wish they would told me in interview that I would be working that much and that much labor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen you interview someone for the warehouse, have the warehouse manager interview him/ her and not 2 HR reps and the COO. This will help the warehouse get the people they want/ need

    Great goals and values. Hard goals and expectations.

    General Service Technician (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsThis company has the very best goals in mind for customers. They do not want customers leaving in an unhappy or unsafe state. The focus is on tire units but service and customer satisfaction are close runners up.

    ConsManagement of individual stores varies. Company seems too 'good ole boy' focused. You have to be friend of a friend in the company to rise at any decent rate. Upper management turnover is low so advancement is slow.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInnovation. Workers are sometimes dealing with outdated services that can cost sales and cause customers to find other places to service their vehicles.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great Experience, and would recommend for someone looking for a promising career.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsKauffman Tire is a growing company that offers many products ranging from tires to automotive repair. They have several departments including wholesale, retail, online sales and corporate.

    ConsThe location of its corporate headquarters is in Ellenwood. Traffic can be a nightmare.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember your employees. While numbers are important the well-being of your employees should not be traded for profits.

    Meh.

    Worker Bee (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsClosed Sunday. Decent hours (8-6). Possibility for some advancement. Lots of push to take care of the customers.

    ConsYou will more than likely be there past 6 and occasionally before 8. Never a Saturday off. Managers basically have to dedicate their life to the company. Never a "thanks". The pro of taking care of the customer can sometimes hit your bottom line; which you may be questioned about later.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA rotating Saturday off might be nice once in a while. A little bit of support and more gratitude would be nice.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
