Discount tire is a good place to work if you have the personality they want you to have. You cannot be yourself here; professionalism, courtesy, a smile and making customers happy is not enough. You are expected to act, sound, and interact with customers in an over the top annoying way. Regardless of numbers and how well customers like you; you need to change.
Very stressful as a full time employee. 10-12+ hr days depending on how busy it is. Structure is broken; a lot of responsibilities are done done daily and difficult to accomplish when your focus is customer experience and sales goals.
Do not expect anything more than a pat on the back for being a top achiever. Yes you have stable pay, hours, and a couple bonuses every year; but there is no motivation to excel other than the fact that it is your job to make money for the company.
I've seen many changes in this company in my 10 years here. There have been a lot of improvements. One thing that is still the same is that every store is managed differently and you will work for some two-faced people. There is nothing worse than having an understanding on something then come to find out your having a conversation with higher up about it. Don't tell someone they are doing a good job if they need help or you have an issue with them.
Best part of the job as with many other companies; is you will meet great people here whom you will look up to and make friends.
No time for your family. Experience means nothing
