    I have been working at Discount Tire (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's fun to work here and the schedule is very flexible.

    Cons

    Employee's must have a clean face which means employee's must shave daily which becomes annoying.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, with great image and values. They are concerned about their employees and want to give them a career.

    Cons

    Work is very hard, and you may work a lot of hours during the week, it's hard to have time to spend with your family.

    Advice to Management

    Overall superb, but a way to have more time with family and not always working. This would overall make everyone including employees and customers happier.

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

    Pros

    It was a fun place to work.
    Get decent discounts on tires and wheels.
    The management and even the team was legitimately the best, they are understanding and have spirit everyday.

    Cons

    When I first started out and about five to six months in. One thing I did not like about this job was that it was physically demanding. If you're out of shape, it's the best place to get back in shape. And after a while of working at a physically demanding place, it starts to get physically and mentally draining.

    I was able to work with some great people, you get exercise just doing your work, and there is never a moment of boredom since the company employs a fast paced work ethic.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, pretty decent pay, great company culture, sundays off, flexible scheduling. Overall great experience at discount tire. Recommend as a temporary job just to make some money.

    Cons

    Not much hours, hard if you're still in high school, working in some weather is challenging for some people, and there isn't much room to advance unless you plan on spending half of your life with the company

    Advice to Management

    Creating an easier way to advance throughout the company would decrease turnover drastically.
