Manager (Current Employee) – Manassas, VA – January 25, 2013
At Tire Kingdom, there is no such thing as a typical day in the office. The daily challenge of the "unknown" (what you will be required produce on any given day), is part of the excitement. But that excitement is often be met with the lows of frustration, from never being able to plan your day. Dealing with the challenge of not knowing what to expect from day to day has taught me how to master improvisation. It has taught me how to access situations quickly, process the information and execute an effective plan of action within minutes. I believe that you're less likely to make costly mistakes, when you are proactive vs reactive.
Management need more training. Managers receive little to no training and are left far too often, on an island having to make decisions based off of instinct vs training. Decisions that could potentially cost the company hundreds of thousands of dollars, should be made based off of training and a support system instead of a hypothesis.
The most enjoyable part of my position, is that it allows me the opportunity to provide someone with the chance to be successful in their career. Everyday, I am in the position to help someone establish and reach goals, as long as they're willing to invest in themselves.
With working with the company it was very good in the beginning until they lost a lot of employees then they put all the pressure on the employees that were still there.In addition they made us work twice as hard instead of getting employees to help with a duties that was made for 4 people,in which they said there going to hire more people but never did.
Not organized and leaves employees by there self to run shop

Daily work isn't the problem. The higher up you move in the company the more likely you are to be fired. Sales people encouraged to tell customers whatever is needed to make a sale. Including pressuring them to put themselves into debt

it was good to work for I just wanted to excel to a better company with better benefits, and the fact that every three month they would move my manager and me to different locations got too expensive with fuel cost.

All in all Tire Kingdom is a fine place to work. The hours are good, the pay is good for front of house employees, and its not particularly hard. Being a sales job, naturally it has its stressful aspects.

the lack of industry knowledge required to promote or hire service managers is staggering its all about numbers no actual field knowledge needed so you end up having to pick up their slack its infuriating to say the least. the commission is well worth it most weeks but the weeks the commission is not good really make you re think what you are doing here. you need to have the heart ( or lack of ) to sell certain things to people because it makes you money if not those $8 an hour for all the work you do both sales wise and managerial/ administrative is just not worth it. the job is high stress which i personally enjoy but that comes down to the individual person. forget about a social life unless you are really good at working hungover. most service advisers close and tk closes at 8pm then you have to do end of day so you are there at least until 8:30 then you most likely have to come in at 9am the latest the next day. then expect your service manager to want to pad their numbers essentially taking sales away from you so that they look good to upper management basically taking money out of your pocket. most store managers that i have dealt with are great its the service managers that you have to watch out for. in the end if you enjoy the high stress of sales and management duties then you will enjoy the job most of the time just be ready to put up with alot of bullsh!t at times and do things that are technically not your "job". there is alot of downtime depending on the store you work at so i guess that kind of makes up for some of the garbage you put up with.
Technician (Current Employee) – Viera, FL – December 10, 2016
I have worked at tire kingdom for a year and a half. The pay as a tech is really substandard. The hours are very long and the crew in always short handed.they expect you to stay all night if nessary to get what ever Bulls hit they bring in.lot of old rusted junk no really good equipment to speak of. All there machines are out dated and they refuse to fix anything that's broken. Lastly the famous words of the managers are I DON'T KNOW .
