    I have been working at American Tire full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The jobs are straight forward. There aren't a plethora of different sized materials to handle. It's nearly all tires. To a forklift operator this means that you don't have to keep adjusting to different material shapes and weights.

    Cons

    Low wages. Then again, I'm starting to think maybe being a forklift operator is never going to amount to much unless it's in a manufacturing environment. As far as distribution centers go I've been hard pressed to find one that will pay higher than 13.00/hr. starting out. The raises that ATD offers are just enough to keep up with the economy inflation.

    Advice to Management

    None. It's a simple operation. Tires come in. Tires go out.

    Pros

    Free healthcare and onsite gym. You will learn a lot about supply chain

    Cons

    Pay is very low and hourly. There is no room for advancement. The CEO and upper management host a town hall every quarter and try to sell the company - meanwhile the company is preparing to go public and CEO still lives in Chicago

    Advice to Management

    Try to image working hard to meet company goals while being paid $20/hr - could you survive?

    I worked at American Tire full-time

    Pros

    Fast growing organization, ok benefits, dynamic CEO

    Cons

    IT department is a revolving door with no investment in talent growth, resulting in low morale and commitment of employees. Bullying, finger pointing, racism, and very little transparency is prevalent at senior leadership level.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on culture, employee retention, and growth. Hire and promote to senior leadership based on knowledge and skills, create transparency in communication. Man up and stop blaming your team.

    I worked at American Tire full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work and ability for opportunity to grow, flexibility, and a lot of great and passionate sales people. Gym on site is a plus too.

    Cons

    Extremely slow I.T. process.
    Sr. Management too top heavy and lacks empathy for lower level employees.
    Caters to I.T., ignores urgent needs of business users and customers.
    Lack of training and ability to develop employee skill set.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your salespeople better. The company is way too top heavy and the more I.T. headcount that is added the slower the process moves. Get back to your roots of selling tires, and if you want to claim you are people first, then please put people first.

    I have been working at American Tire full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you had asked me this a couple of years ago, I would have said some nice things. If I stay long enough to see Stu leave the company I will review this company again.

    Cons

    Stu and his "regime" are the only ones able to make money right now. The epitome of micromanaging from the top down.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Stu!!

    Pros

    ATD is a growing company with opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    Once you are in one position unless you know or have connections in HQ the company makes it difficult to move to the next level.
