Excellent Enviroment
Apprentice Manager, Salesman & Tire Technician (Current Employee), Victoria, TXJanuary 23, 2015
Pros: excellent benefits and enviroment
Cons: very short lunches, no breaks, always rushed
Over all a great environment. A perfect job for a college student. Room to grow always. Always opportunities opening up for growth. Only downfall is a CONSTANT rush of work. Never a break, EVER. Its always go, go, go, for hours on in. Management seems to believe since they have young technicians that they put such a heavy work load on you. Yet with all that being said, this job is probably about the best job a high school or college student can get.
Thanks- Garett

Service Coordinator & Technician (Former Employee), Bee Caves, TXDecember 17, 2014
Pros: great outtings
Cons: short breaks or not enough
Made sure everything was ready to start the day. There were numerous things we would get but mostly i was on the all four tires or R&B. I learned to work very fast but stay safe while doing it. Mangagement was great always friendly. loved the guys i worked with. The hardest part of this job is no a/c in the summer so it got pretty hot. The most enjoyable part is seeing the smile on peoples faces and knowing they were driving on safe tires.

Alright job, With great team members.
Service Technician (Former Employee), Rochester, MNDecember 1, 2014
The job itself was not enjoyable. Overworked, and under payed. But the employees who worked there made the work okay. The workload enjoyment depends on the position you have. I did overall somewhat enjoy it, But if you're looking for an automotive job, there are many other places where it would be much more enjoyable.

Discount Tire is a Great company that cares for their people.
Apprentice Tech, Sales, Service Coordinator (Current Employee), Phoenix, AZNovember 19, 2014
Pros: advancement, management, and ceo
Cons: the pay could be better for part timers.
Discount Tire Co. has been one of the best companies that I have worked for. My experience there has been truly remarkable. Every day was slightly different. I have learned a great deal of integrity and honesty through this company. I have learned that great work does not go without being unnoticed. Being the first one there and the last one to leave will do wonders, not only at Discount Tire Co. but in ANY job. I have learned this and so many other transferable lessons.

Hard work, but the management was great
Service Technician (Former Employee), Avon, IndianaNovember 17, 2014
Pros: always working, not bored.
Cons: hard work.
Typical day at work was arrive at 8 am, get the machines started, clean the warehouse. Then by 8:30 the doors open and the rest of the day was packed with cars, rotating tires, fixing flat tires, changing tire from wheels. The pay was great for a high school or college student. Raises are also given for hard work.

its "the place to go to for tires." Hardworkers are made here.
Crew Cheif (Former Employee), Victoria, TXNovember 4, 2014
Pros: decent money for a first part time job, teaches life and work lessons, and its something you can move up in and eventually have a top position in that company.
Cons: a lot of hard work, a lot of heat exposure, and at winter time service slows down which means some poeple have to leave early cutting hours.
Discount tire was my first hardworking job, excluding family ranch work. This job helped me grow my work ethics and also helped me grow as a person. All the heat exposure through out the day drives you crazy at first but as time goes you grow to it or get use to it. It shows you can handle a lot of work in the heat and show that anybody can work hard if they apply themselves to. Discount tire is the perfect place for that type of training mind set, as it has friendly co-workers and a sense of work family all around.

Fun, but with issues
Inventory specialist (Current Employee), Asheville, NCOctober 25, 2014
Pros: advancement, training, customers
Cons: management, scheduling
First off, I'll say that this job can be incredible with the right management. There are plenty of opportunities for advancement and on-the-job training that are hard to get elsewhere. Having said that, management can be an issue. My current manager doesn't seem to understand that techs and other managers can do jobs on their own. He hovers and is very critical of the most minor of details. Also scheduling can be an issue with schedules varying from 5hrs a week to upwards of 40hrs a week.

If you're hopoing to start in the automotive environment, you'll do yourself well to start with Discount.
Service Technician (Current Employee), Warren, MIOctober 22, 2014
Pros: flexible, compensation based on work ethic, advancement options.
Cons: physical labor, probably won't get a living wage, stressful "fast paced" environment.
Learn great skills for the automotive job field. Discount has a flexible schedule and positive management that treats you like a person. It does get hectic, but that's the nature of the beast. What I don't care for is the wear it's putting on my body, but I don't think that's from the job, but it certainly isn't helping.
