Friendly place to work. Clean show room but slow paced and varmint and the company needs more stability financially. Potential growth in this environment but need stronger management and better communication skills

Fun work place. They were unsafe and didn’t do work to standard. They claimed they were the best but they would always cut short. Breaks were reasonable. Hired new employees at an higher salary then old employees.

This was a fun place to work because of the atmosphere. It wsa a fast paced environment to work in to to the young people that worked there. Great place for a young person to work in part time while attending school.
Crew Chief (Former Employee) – Santa Rosa, CA – July 26, 2017
A typical day at work would be come in an take out all the tires in the bays left from the night before. Then we would wait until we have customers and start to bring tag into the bay to work on them. I learned there is a lot of safety precautions before working on someones cars. The management was run by good people who cared about their employees but also they were in a constant rush and fast pace. The culture was fun and fast moving. Hardest part of the job had to be trying to balance giant uneven truck tires. The best part of the job was being a Crew Chief and helping all the cars get in and out of the bays as fast as possible.
Apprentice Technician (Former Employee) – Clovis, CA – June 13, 2017
Worked there for 3 and a half years and had no issues. The company cares for its workers and will do whatever they can to help. The manager i worked for was a very hard person to work for, but he was a person full of knowledge. Only things that really bothered me were some of the workers did not pull their own weight and some of us would have to compensate some of our own time to pick up the slack.
Loader/Unloader (Former Employee) – Bedford, OH – November 13, 2016
Upon arrival, you pick a dock to work on with a few other workers and begin load and unload tires of all sizes for various company's. Depending on the work load you are assigned a specific job on a dock to either lace the tires or to carry them inside. The work is easy overall, but hard on your body seeing that you are constantly lifting all day.
Apprentice Technician (Current Employee) – Antioch, CA – October 12, 2016
You work very hard for low wages. It is slowly getting better with an increase in the minimum wage but it is still tough to save any money. It is a classic case of the higher ups making way to much while the guys in the back struggle to make ends meet. Even assistant managers start out around $13 an hour and are required to work 50 hours a week. The store managers who make 100k a year have trouble handing out 50 cent raises. If you want a steady job while you go to school it's great. flexible hours, nice people to work with. Just be careful. You'll get brainwashed with the "Americas Tire Dream" b.s. and get stuck with the company for 6 years like me.
flexible schedule, impossible to get fired if you are not an idoit
It will destroy your body, slave labor, low pay, the dream

Workflow Coordinator (Current Employee) – Millbrae, CA – August 3, 2015
Overall great job. It has gotten to the point where it gets repetitive though. On a daily basis, I work on vehicles and manage a team to make sure the back room flows smoothly. When needed, I give assistance at the front desk and help customer get checked in.
I learned a lot at this job. I learned more about time management and making sure people need to clock in and out when needed. Also about man power; realizing when it was cost efficient to have people on and off the clock. As i progressed, I gained more responsibilities. So I was more involved with the store and also training.
Being at work for 45+ hours a week, being able to connect with my peers was a factor. At all the stores I worked at, all my co-workers were great and made the work day go by a lot smoother.
As a company itself, it treats it's employees great. The benefits are good, we get bonuses and also work parties/picnics. Not many companies at this level, for what we do, treat it's employees this good.
