    I have been working at Discount Tire full-time

    Pros

    Unlimited Potential. Every employee starts out changing tires and works up from there. They support their people in times of hardship and they are growing fast. The leaders are looking to the future and they are making changes to meet the new higher expectations of the customer.

    Cons

    You will find yourself dedicated to the point you are constantly looking at and talking about tires!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to support your teams and look for ways to improve the career path. Look to establish and foster relationships at all levels giving feed back constantly both good and opportunity based.

    I have been working at Discount Tire full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits galore and alot of fun! Pay is ok for the amount of work. Met some of the best people of my life I now consider my family as well. Executives are also very down to earth people that have worked in the trenches and have alot of one on one time with every employee! You learn to love and enjoy what we do and gain a huge sense of pride doing it.

    Cons

    I do believe politics do play a big part in promotions. However its not a huge deal due to the amount of good people in the company you can't help but be happy for them. My biggest complaint is small amount of time with our own families. 50 hours is a usual week with very limited vacation and no sick time (which means a sick spell or injury can wipe out a planned trip with family).

    Advice to Management

    We are a company built on focusing on family and customers. We will keep on caring for and cultivating our employees and customers. Help us out with a little more time with our families!

    More hands on training, less powerpoints about the basics.

    Pros

    if you’re into automobile and wheels this is the great place to learn. from repairing, mounting, dismounting, how old they are, the condition of tire, etc

    Cons

    labor, lifting heavy wheels from trailers by yourself cause everyone else is busy trying to get their cars done. you really don’t have anyone to help you if you’re stuck.

    Advice to Management

    listen to your employees more

    I worked at Discount Tire full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has lots of residual benefits like outings and ride and drives and picnics. Lots of events and giveaways. They treat you like family because you are family to them. I worked in Jacksonville Florida since I was 16 and spent 12 years with them. Ups and downs just like other jobs but this company makes you feel appreciated and you'll always know they won't leave you behind.

    Cons

    Lots of hours. They pay is nice but keep in mind you legitamitly work for it. There can be lots of politics but that's everywhere. The company does put a lot on your plate and isn't very forgiving if you screw up especially if it impacts a customer negatively. Once your on the naughty list it's hard to get off of it.

    Advice to Management

    Don't drink the coolaid too much. Grow a pair and voice your opinion when you feel something isn't right. That's how discount tire got to where it is thanks to Bruce and what he cultivated. Now that he's sadly gone the rest of you need to uphold his legacy and not screw it up. It's been leaning that way for a few years. Hopefully it doesn't get worse.

    Pros

    You’ll always be busy and if you aren’t busy you’ll be sent home unless you’re the top guy at your position

    Cons

    Getting sent home on slow days. Rarely given overtime even if you your help could be needed later in the day

    Advice to Management

    Let people get their hours and share some overtime don’t choose favorites
