Master Auto Technician (Former Employee) – 5208 Military Road Niagara Falls, NY – November 4, 2017
Mr. tire is a place where employees, management work together to achieve the same goal. If there was a problem another employee would come over to help solve the problem. Mr. tire was more than a job it was like a family. Employees always came to work smiling.
extended lunches longer breaks
I was shipped from store to stor to help out the other technicians
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – New Jersey – October 2, 2017
Management is terrible from store level and up. All the employees are constantly trying to stab each other in the back, I've never seen so much drama in a shop before. District/regional managers are constantly flipping the script, you're told to do things one way then the next day you're being reprimanded for doing exactly that. Horrible communication between all parties which creates constant tension in an already hostile work environment. Management is constantly lying about inventory on reports because they're too lazy to do things the proper way or don't care and DM's seem to be in full support of this practice. Work/life balance is non existent as you're typically working 60 hours a week (which management also lies about in order to make the business appear more profitable) and your days off are filled with phone calls asking you to come in.

You would spend most days waiting for work to come in, then told you need to stay past your scheduled hours for appointments. So you would likely have more like 50 clock hours and not achieve the flat rate hours per week. It is their policy you must stay late if needed. I don't the management really cares, co-workers come back from lunch high. Most of the equipment is worn out or broken, Typical monro company! I worked for them under another brand in New England, company I was very successful with until they bought them out! Don't be fooled it's just about the $$ with these guys.
close to home
poor management, long hours and co-workers using drugs in shop
tech (Former Employee) – Marietta, GA – September 21, 2017
The employees where pretty trashy and I would have ended up getting in huge confrontation with one or all of them if I stayed. Everyone at that location was already uncomfortable to work with after just a few days because of how annoying and crass they where being. I saw them as childish so I didn't say much the whole time I was there and right before I quit the way they acted to me was pretty lame. It was just sorry. They where pricks and they acted like they where going to fire me anyways just because I wasn't really getting along with them so at the end of the day I don't think I did the wrong thing by leaving. I'm not trying to waste my life working at a no-goals job when I can go to school. Don't work there or at any Mr. Tire.
No pros, 50 plus hours a week no benefits as a tech, ASE training not likely
Unethical business practices, Trashy employees, Poorly managed, Long hours for bad pay, Do not work for this company
Service/Store Manager (Current Employee) – Ohio – July 26, 2017
This company is notorious for promising you the moon and never delivering. They will say just about anything to get you to transfer to another location yet once you get there, they pretend it never happened. I was told that there are certain days I would no longer have to work, yet 2 weeks into the transfer and I was scheduled on those days. My Market Managers response was, well that's what the job calls for. Not a horrible company unless you have a life outside of work...
General Service Technician (Former Employee) – Downingtown, PA – July 25, 2017
they give you false promises. i was told that i would receive a well deserved raise after 2 years of busting my butt, but nothing happened. while i was there those 2 years they went through 5 store managers and 2 district managers. that is a problem, when they cannot even make their employees happy.
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) – Fredericksburg, VA – July 5, 2017
Mr. tire is a fast paced environment were you can learn a lot if you are not familiar with automotive. You will be put in stressful situations were you have to think on your feet and do the best that you know how to provide to the customers needs.
Good pay, great employees, and able to become a team providing you have the right people.
High cost in health insurance, constant transfer of stores, stressful enviorment from higher management
Assistant manager (Current Employee) – Maryland – June 20, 2017
Working at mr tire is great . you will learn the field very quickly and be tested often .the only down side is the work / home balance you will work 50 to 60 hours in management if you can get past that Mr tire is a great company to be a part of.
Automotive Technician (Former Employee) – Seaford, DE – March 27, 2017
I found that the most enjoyable part of this job was making a repair to completion. The work environment was very friendly, but management was questionable at times. I did enjoy working working with my coworkers. In the automotive field, you learn something every day and that is one of the things that I enjoy most about this field.
