    I have been working at Les Schwab Tire Centers full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    There are far too many pros to list, great hours, great pay, as long as you are willing to work hard this is the place for you. I have been with the company for four years and am already in a management training program. Very family centered company.

    Cons

    Working in the cold and heat can get to some people but the benefits and pay make it well worth it

    Pros

    Great pay, employees, benifits,, Once a year bonus

    Cons

    Like all places you have great Managers and you have awful ones. And most of the awful ones seems to be the "2nd Generation Schwabbies" ie existing mangers friends and or familys managers need to wake up and pay attention to you employees who help you take home your monthly bonus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to you employee's they run the store and get a real prospective instead of only coming around once a year to look a store for 20 mins to only forget who is working for you 5 seconds later and then ask there name again and not even listen to there concerns.(yes has happen to me 2 times in 7 years)

    Pros

    Les Schwab is a place that has a strong focus on employees and our customers. Excellent benefits and profit sharing programs make all of the hard work worth it. The company continues to grow and create opportunities to advance. What I thought might be a job, I now have a career.

    Cons

    The hours can be long at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the importance and value for the employees and customer service level.

    Pros

    Working on cars/ laid back environment, fast paced working experience, They schedule good based on students, and make sure you get a good amount of hours in.

    Cons

    it is hard to top out because they ware you down way before you can get to that pay, dealing with customers who are only worried about themselves.

    Pros

    Les Schwab provides us with excellent benefits and promotional opportunities. Love how everyone works together to make a store successful and I respect how we support our communities by participating in and donating to local events.

    Cons

    Working in the bad weather can be tough but it also brings increased sales that benefit us because of the unique profit sharing that Les created.

    Pros

    Well pros.. Not many. Benifits and retirement. Good retirement. If you are a manager then there are lots of pros.

    Cons

    Not nearly enough pay for a top wage employee. Hard to support a family on that pay scale unless you are in management. They say its all about family and customers... For management it's all about $$$$$$. Always getting the customer buying somthing in and out faster than the customer who has already bought tires and is waiting to get a flat fixed for 2 hours. Tryin to get a Saturday off or maybe a long 3 day weekend to do somthing with your family is nearly impossible. Management rotate every weekend off between manager and asst mgr. long weekends if they want. Leave early Friday or and take off till Monday or take Saturday off and comeback Tuesday. Management does whatever they want. Come and go as they please. They need to held accountable and have surprise visits from zone and regional managers. Oh and finally we have sick pay this year. Its always been if you dont work tou dont get paid!!!!! Im sure managers are pissed about having to pay an employee when hes/she is home sick. Would rather just come to work and give everyone the flu. Unreal!! Just not a good company to work for anymore. Lots of other jobs out there that pay more and are way better to there employees. I have seen lots of great employees walk away from big bonus and benifits and take big pay cuts just to get out of this company. I'm not far behind...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees!!!!! Hire more employees so that way when all of the experienced ones leave your not screwd to bad.
