      Pros

      Company that truly cares about its employees and builds on its culture. Have not strayed from what built it 61 years ago. Primarily only promote from within. Constantly growing even during the pandemic. Very solid company to work for that takes VERY good care of its people. You will 100% get out what you put in.

      Cons

      Retail — customers are not always fun. Some long days. Nothing crazy though.

      I worked for the company for 3 years when I was in high school and it was a good job for a high schooler.

      Pros

      The job definitely keeps you in shape and depending on the people it can be a fun environment at times.

      Cons

      Unrealistic time and labor expectations. They expect you to work as hard as you can the entire time you are on the clock and for some it is not possible. Also, not every store is this way (saw other stores like this as well), but my store got a new manager and the people who worked there started being treated very poorly and not allowed to advance but the people he hired were treated very well and were able to advance rapidly, for example I had tried for a year to go full time as a salesman and could not get any training but there was someone brand new hired in that mentioned he would like to and went full time with the company 2-3 months later. (And ended up leaving about 6 months after) I would recommend watching the back room for a while before putting in your application and see how the other employees are treated behind closed doors.

      Pros

      *The people who work there care about you and want you to move ahead in terms of your position in the company *If you put in the work you can make decent money for not having a degree

      Cons

      *The work is hard on your body especially if you are not used to working 10+ hours a day running, squatting, lifting, etc *The pay could be better for the work you have to do *You are expected to always keep on giving more and once you do, they want even more from you

      Working as a FT Assistant Manager

      Pros

      This company goes above and beyond to take care of its employees. Discount Tire strives to provide opportunities to people as soon as they get hired on as a tire tech. You can go far into the company if you desire and if not you will gain valuable lessons for life in general.

      Cons

      Working so many hours. As a FT Assistant manager, there is one thing and that's working which pretty much takes up your entire life. You will be there for 10 to 11+ hours 5 days a week, unless you take vacation time off.

      Pros

      You get to be part of a team You make the roads a safer place to drive on Great place for leaning how to change a tire and using hand tools.

      Cons

      Managers and higher ups talk to you and treat you like garbage Overworked and underpaid Poor management skills. They will do ANYTHING in the name of profit ever since the founder died (including cutting your hours to a very bare minimum) And everyday after work you're too tired to do anything Oh yea, and God forbids you get hurt on the job. The only thing you get is a phone call stating that you have no other option but to come to work.

      Pros

      Working at Discount is great for the most part. The company prides itself on how well they take care of their people, the hours are flexible, the people you work with are typically hard working, and everyone starts from the bottom so even the men and women in corporate understand your daily struggles.

      Cons

      The company makes sure that promoting to the full time position is competitive. My town had two stores and between them they needed 6 full time slots filled, even though they needed to fill the spots they only promoted 3 of the 7 who were able to fill them. The next time promotions were in the works I was one of two candidates, but they decided to hold off until more people were ready.
