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

    Pros

    If you have a strong well oiled team that helps you its not that bad. Remember team work makes the dream work. At the shop i worked at there were only males we had a decent coworker relationship and cracked a lot of jokes and had many laughs. Sometimes there would be barely anything to do for weeks and other times we would be slammed from open until closed. If you are looking to gain experience in the automotive field its not a bad place to start.
    Ask questions and often times experienced mechanics will feed your curious mind about why this does that and why it had to be done in this order

    Cons

    There are time constraints that we as technicians are barely able to meet 30 minutes max for an oil change
    59 minutes for a set of 4 tires. If you are completing these tasks by yourself one misplaced impact gun or oil filter wrench can send you over the short time limit easily.
    Not that it takes 30 minutes for a regular oil change but we have to inspect every vehicle and check tread dept air pressure brake fluid levels and other visible defects write everything down to make recommendations.
    Saturdays are mandatory for everyone

    Advice to Management

    There are small things that might take you 30 seconds to do that will save technicians exponential time down the line like I said before team work makes the dream work.
    Also there is this new thing called splash guards that most modern cars have now which takes almost 4 minutes to uninstall and reinstall yet us technicians are still expected to maintain that under 30 minute oil change please lets be a little realistic.

    Stop shuving things like Tires Plus cards, 4 tire sales WITH an alignment, and recommendations on customers who don't necessarily need it immediately

    Pros

    Compensation isn't bad but culture is terrible. Please stay away from this company. They will preach values but in reality have none.

    Cons

    Deceitful practices are supposedly frowned upon but in reality rewarded. Direct management is by iron fist. Beware these people are untrustworthy.

    Stand up for your employees and make it a place people love to come in to even when business is slow. It's not the hard workers fault and you should see that. Don't mistreat management.
