    I worked at American Tire Distributors full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Enjoyed working for ATD, especially the sales teams and operations at the D.C. level. Have made many friends throughout the 7 years internal and external.

    Cons

    Life work balance suffers, HR / corp has changed policies frequent without transparency and advanced warning, and low level employee or mid management concerns to HR do not seem to be taken serious. Becoming a report focused company vs. a sales / service focused company with many changes over past few years.

    Advice to Management

    Being a service orientated business, either need to accommodate customers needs, (service, inventory and delivery) or sacrifice primary share. HR needs to take concerns of employees or middle management more serious. As well as any HR changes to employees benefits need to be made aware prior to initiation to allow employees better understanding of the effects.
