I worked at Discount Tire full-time (More than a year)
Great company to work for and start a career. They only promote from within and if your store hits certain sales figures, your manager usually buys lunch or takes the crew out. Good family atmosphere between sales and techs, because when the store is swamped at the end of the day, the sales guys and managers are usually out there busting tires just like everyone else.
Discounts on products are great too!
The store I worked at worked with my community college schedule.
The polo shirts were baggy and didn't accentuate my ripped arms. And working Saturdays is sometimes a drag, but if you want hours, they get them to you.
Advice to Management
Keep up the good work!
I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Discount Tire (Cleveland, TN) in April 2017.
Easy, relaxing but, effective, most of the questions were about accomplishment and other jobs I had in the past and how much I made at those places. Interview was one on one but, also met others going in and out of the office. Overall everyone was friendly, easy to talk to and eager to meet you.
