    Pros

    Takes care of their employees. The ladder of success is clearly evident.

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

    Pros

    I thank Discount Tire for putting food on my table for many years. However their practices of promoting is VERY much 'who you know'.

    Cons

    Many people in the Arizona region grew up with each other and have been working together for decades. As such as their children come to work for the company their given extremely preferential treatment.

    I have been working at Discount Tire part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love my job. Been here for 5+ years and I never get tired of it. The work is easy to get used to, but it keeps you active. You make unique friendships that will last a lifetime.

    Cons

    You are free to express what you're thinking, therefore sometimes you will get into extremely heated verbal disagreements with other employees, so it's hard to work here if you have a temper. You will inevitably get hurt on the job, and during the wintertime it's pretty brutal.

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    The owner (Mr. Halle) really cares about his employees & his customers. He takes care of his employees & rewards them very generously.

    Cons

    The company can be a little behind the times technology-wise in my opinion.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the values that Bruce Halle built his company on. He never made his employees or his customers feel like it was always about the bottom line...he made it clear that it was about their happiness & safety. If you hold true to Mr. Halle's values, then the bottom line will take care of itself...it's been working pretty good for him for over 50 years now. Honor his commitment to his employees & the company he built from the ground up.
