      I have been working at Les Schwab Tire Centers full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      The company actually cares about it's employees. And the employees are good, hardworking people. The slogan "Doing the right thing matters" is really taken to heart. Medical and retirement benefits are excellent, plus a yearly bonus. Maternity leave was great too. And there's a significant discount on tires for you and your immediate family.

      Cons

      The hourly pay is not great, but they make up for it in benefits. Also, not a ton of vacation days.

      I worked at Les Schwab Tire Centers full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Pay was competitive compared to other options in my area, though this does seem to vary with the manager. Coworkers were nice and helpful, bringing me up to speed quickly. The customers are usually a joy to interact with.

      Cons

      Worked Saturdays. Some managers that I interacted with were ill suited for their job.

      Advice to Management

      Better train your local managers and retain your store staff through training and promotions (in other words do more of what you already do).

      I worked at Les Schwab Tire Centers for more than a year

      Pros

      Overall everyone was nice, willing to help you if they had time. Pay was decent at $13.50 per hour. One hour lunch although when busy you only get 30mins.

      Cons

      A lot of hard work if you're the new guy. Typically you get stuck doing what no one else wants to do, stacking junk tires, putting freight away, cleaning up after everyone. Fast paced job, running everywhere you go. Managers and co-workers constantly telling you to hurry up even though they're not rushing themselves. A lot of turnover, within six months 4 people ended up quitting. Store closes at 6pm usually but you're...

      I have been working at Les Schwab Tire Centers full-time for more than 9 years

      Pros

      Great benefits Facility is top-notch History of company is cool and inspiring

      Cons

      Senior staff do not see big picture Lack of leadership among senior staff No alternate work schedules available Existing culture from long time staff is crummy "Don't ask questions" unwritten rule

      Advice to Management

      Discouraging place to report to 5 days per week. Morale at Headquarters is at all-time low. No commitment to offer alternate work schedules for office workers. Communication to employees from top management feels untrustworthy and lacking. Senior staff struggles with connecting to the "small" people. Many power struggles ensue. Senior staff (all men) lack the big picture and what it means to lead effectively. HQ employees...

        On the job training, fair pay, overtime is nice, get days off during the week, sundays and holidays. Give a clear path to management if you want to stick with the company.

        Cons

        rarely get saturdays off, you can never be sure what time you'll actually get off of work

        1. I have bin at my shop for 3 months and when I start s I told them I have online school classes to take. My work is a hour and a half from my house.

        Advice to Management

        Stay real with your employees and maybe you wouldn’t have to hire a new one every week just for them to quit after there first check.
