    Pros

    Great Market Manager, flexibility with discounts, allows you to truly manage your team and run the shop as if it had your name on it. (As long as it is in compliance with Mr.Tire and the customer stays happy)

    Great exposure to higher ups and executives, including chairmen and CEO

    Cons

    - 5 day work week followed by a 6 day work week.
    - Minimum 10 hour shifts
    - Lengthy phone greeting
    - Unclear pay (performance based pay plan)
    - Unclear bonus money or eligibility
    - Minimal time off
    - No sick days (company does not offer them)
    - Only 5 vacation days until 5 years of service is reached
    - High deductible on healthcare
    - Corporate office has no idea what is going on
    - IT department is rude and never helpful

    Advice to Management

    If you are single, and live to work, then this is the place for you. You will work for your full "salary" - They will get every penny out of you.


  3. Long hours, low pay no home life.

    Pros

    Very stable but thrifty company. Stock price keeps going up, good variety of products. Most employees are good to work with.

    Cons

    Very low pay for experience, knowledge and performance. Over10 years as store manager with no pay increases, 15 year techs at my store without raises for 5 years. Zone managers and above receiving millions a year in bonuses and stock options. Low quality parts with premium pricing. Long hours and every holiday and Saturday. Corporate is cutting payroll and people. New motto is"More with less"

    Advice to Management

    Morale is very low at the store level, you need to fix to grow sales not just buy more competitors.

    Pros

    Have been in the automotive field for 16 yrs and have never made as much money as working with Mr tire. Great flat rate pay.The management is understanding of the family man. 401k matching. Health insurance.

    Cons

    Not for a lazy tech. Have seen some guys come thru that want to sit at there box and wait for work to fall in there lap and then complain about there paycheck. That works at busy time but not at slow time. These guys don't last long. If you don't mind doing work then there is no cons.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly happy with all the management team

    Pros

    Working with some skilled techs before they find a job that actually pays them what they are worth, a chance to learn some interesting things from them.

    Cons

    -Long Hours
    -Unrealistic expectations
    -Pay is ridiculously low and will never improve
    -7 days a week, all holidays etc. you will work
    -Constant badgering by higher ups to sell sell sell, even if the customer has already said no repeatedly.
    -Personally witnessed or been advised to be dishonest to the customer. (ie selling services they didnt need, or forcing things to fit even though wrong part number air filter, cabin filter etc.)
    -The hiring managers will openly lie to you, saying you will earn an enormous amount of money working for them....dont believe it, it is a flat out lie.
    -No lunch breaks, or breaks of any kind, no matter how many hours during the day you work.
    -Many, many, many other things too numerous to be listed here.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, start paying techs what they are worth, and cost of living increases in pay always nice. Stop forcing your managers to milk every dime out of every customer every time they come in. Start realizing if people dont want to spend money they arent going to. Your business plan needs some serious reworking. Other companies are jumping ahead because of no pressure tactics and above all else "HONESTY", too many times I have seen others trying to rip customers off, that is not a way to build a relationship with customers.
