    You can get Discounted work on vehicle

    No advancement, little training, poor management, rude to employees, business being sold (might be a plus), owner thinks that chewing out an employee in front of customers and other people is a valid disciplinary tool.

    I have been working at Big O Tires full-time

    Pros

    The pay is ok if you're looking for over time and you can get promoted with good sales

    Cons

    Management expects way too much and puts a lot of pressure when sales are low even threatening to fire you if you don't make the numbers but won't fix or replace supplies and tools needed to do so.

    Advice to Management

    Understand that some days are slow and giving threats to fire or cut pay only unmotivates employees.

    Advice to Management
