    I have been working at Tires Plus full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    pay, benefits, sky is limit for career path. Your pay and career are only limited by what you are willing to put into your own self advancement.

    Cons

    typical retail stuff: have to be there to take care of customers when they are off of work which means you work most minor holidays, weekends, etc.

    Advice to Management

    I feel employee retention can be increased by letting more team mates know what they are capable of achieving within the company .

    I have been working at Tires Plus full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They're in the past... The offer benefits just like everyone else. Used to be able to get help from HR but not anymore.

    Cons

    Literally sat in meetings in February. Was told that we're getting back to the basics. Everyone was thrilled for 5 minutes. Then they introduced the 4dx strategy. Let me tell ya... I thought micromanaging couldn't get worse. In the same meeting we were told "this is all we will implement this year. We are not going to put anything further on your shoulders."

    Not 5 months later we have another meeting to discuss a new Workforce Optimization (WFO) plan. This plan was thought of by a consultant firm. It is very clear the consultants have never worked in an auto repair facility. To sum up WFO... Generate more productivity and profitability with less manpower.

    I wish I was making this stuff up.

    When it was stressed to our corporate staff at great lengths that this will hurt our business and lower car count - they didn't listen. Now the company is down in car count, and it's because salesmen and women are not good at saying yes to the customer.

    Now we have a fast finish for 2018 that involves more micromanaging because it's the store level teammates fault.

    Prepare to miss family engagements and question your morals. Because the new model is to maximize what you can out of customers VS providing trustworthy advice.

    HR is a total disaster. Can't get help from anyone. Everything (including our banking) is done now out of the country by those who don't speak English.

    Advice to Management

    Ditch the consulting firm and listen to your managers at the store level. Get back to honesty and integrity. Be a trustworthy auto repair company. Stop trying to be like NTB...

    Pros

    Co-workers and day to day conversations.

    Cons

    Upper Management, False Promises, Long hours

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees for hard work instead of attempting to keep them in the same capacity as long as they will put up with it.

    I worked at Tires Plus full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits. Some co workers discounts on tires

    Cons

    Retail, long hours, biased schedule towards store managers.

    Advice to Management

    You can expect to work 10 days straight with little to no overtime being they'll schedule the payroll reset in the middle of your week. You can also expect to close 99.9 percent of the time which usually can leave you to stay late to almost an hour or more past your scheduled time to leave, and some small stores you will work Sunday by yourself so no real time to use restroom or really have lunch unless one of your techs get you food. Absolutely no backing of employees when it comes to customer disputes. Really no time out of work, no consistent schedule.

    I worked at Tires Plus full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    One of the most enjoyable places I have ever worked. We worked our butts off, but we made money and stayed honest.

    Cons

    1) At times the long work days were exhausting. 2) being contacted on your days off for Mechanical advice or the "please come fix this."

    Advice to Management

    when I worked for them Management was great . The store Manager Scott was the most fair , laid back manager I have encountered. you knew what was expected of you everyday and when we were short staffed he would be there working next to you if needed. The Regional Management team was also easy going and supportive at the time. Continue to take care of your employees but everyone needs family/ time away.
