    Pros

    Great company that wants to help you move up and grow. Great pay and great bonus opportunities. They make it fun to come to work every day.

    Cons

    If you can call it a CON but long hours are a possibility. Other then that there are no CON's, you work hard and you are rewarded, slack off and you are done.

    I have been working at Les Schwab Tire Centers part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    decent pay starting out, plenty of opportunity to move up within the company. great benefits, you name it, medical, dental, vision, vacation pay, profit sharing, bonuses, store discounts, and free popcorn!!! and there are good people that work there. Provided uniforms

    Cons

    not too many cons, just the starting pay isn't always the best, started out making 11.60/hr. part time. Also have to pass a drug screening to get hired.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Les Schwab Tire Centers full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, lots of benefits, can have great on the job training and certifications if your driven enough. Some crews are a blast to be apart of as well

    Cons

    All the pros fly out the window if the manager wants to keep you under their thumb. Had one manager who wanted everyone to succeed and another who didn't

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing politics and try to give the guy at the bottom more of a voice so he doesn't get stumped by the manager

    I have been working at Les Schwab Tire Centers full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Health insurance benefits are decent.

    The Headquarters building is really beautiful. The property includes a cafe, a small fitness center and many walking trails.

    Cons

    The Company is run by a dozen 50-something males who have no concept of work-life balance.

    Promotions and career paths are encouraged and clearly spelled out for Tire Center employees. Career paths and promotions for Headquarters staff is non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Flex time. It's overdue.

    Pros

    Great place to learn about the tire business. You can work your way from the bottom and become very successful.

    Cons

    Like anything, if you want to get ahead you are going to have to put in a lot of work, days can be very long, especially if you are at a busy store.

    Advice to Management

    Keep expanding the company, and operating with the spirit of Les in mind.

    I worked at Les Schwab Tire Centers part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I want to learn more about tires and cars in general and I have worked with tires a little bit in my last job and I would like to extend my knowledge.

    Cons

    I don't have that experience in tires but have had a lot with working on cars. I'm a more visual learner.

    Advice to Management

    I need this job to keep myself busy and active. I'm going to college right now at the Career College of Northern Nevada. I want this job so I can make money to help out with payments
