    I worked at Discount Tire part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great working environment, drug free premises which is a plus, I have NEVER experience being left out nor had any confrontation with any or my team mates, they always train you whether you re-applied or applied for the first time, and the managers WILL work with you, and they will stand by you along with every team member your working with. Another great thing is that EVERYONE is involved from tire techs all the way up to the man himself Bruce Halle, he visits stores around every region every now and then, along with the VP of discount tire which is awesome. I loved the bonuses we gotten every quarter year, also all the events that was held for stores to compete and have fun. The crazy part is that when ever someone gets an opportunity to move up, everyone else moves up along with them which is awesome ! Not to mention the Direct Deposit every Friday !

    Cons

    Sometimes I see guys who has been there for a while who should be in a better position then what they are in, but I guess it all comes down to their performance.

    Advice to Management

    In some stores, just make sure everything is organized for faster bay times.

    I worked at Discount Tire full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to work for and start a career. They only promote from within and if your store hits certain sales figures, your manager usually buys lunch or takes the crew out. Good family atmosphere between sales and techs, because when the store is swamped at the end of the day, the sales guys and managers are usually out there busting tires just like everyone else.

    Discounts on products are great too!

    The store I worked at worked with my community college schedule.

    Cons

    The polo shirts were baggy and didn't accentuate my ripped arms. And working Saturdays is sometimes a drag, but if you want hours, they get them to you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Discount Tire full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Being Full time had great benefits, good hard work with overtime. Got to learn with no experience how to work on tires and rims.

    Cons

    Full time employees get bounced around a lot
    Very numbers focused
    Good place to work if you have a good manager.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure people who become store managers are not just long time employees with knowledge of the business. Employee longevity will be greater if you promote the people that carry the companies value and culture better.


  6. "Good people but hard work for a small starting pay."

    Pros

    Plenty of room to increase pay and move up.

    Cons

    Doesn’t seem to be worth starting pay and the discount stores in Amarillo definitely move faster than other ones around Texas.
