Not bad
Manager (Current Employee), OhioMay 8, 2015
Pros: Advancement, bonus potential
Cons: Work / Life balance is a foreign concept here.
Depending on level, there are opportunities for advancement.
For a company who advertises "Family Owned", they do not seem to care about store level management and their families. Paid for 52hrs but expected – more... to work 60+. You work less than 52hrs and they deduct PTO, even if you have worked 60+ the previous weeks.
For store management level, 40-50% of your pay is bonus.
They claim paid holiday's for management, but you still only get your normal 2 days off that week, one of the days just move to the day the holiday falls on. – less

Worst career decision I have ever made. Greater Nashville Area
Manager (Former Employee), Nashville, TNMarch 4, 2015
Cons: no home life, sub par pay, hours too long, upper mgmnt, no breaks, too many who think they are in charge, no clear path, operations standards vary from vp, to rvp, to rm...etc
Very unhealthy work environment. Upper management does not have a grip on reality but instead they have almost a dreamlike reality they believe in and drive into you at the store level. In this area if – more... you are not a "yes man" then you're not good enough no matter how good you are with customers and sales. You're expected to bow down to upper management. They play favorites. Your work - home life balance is non existent. It's only your work life that is important. It is frowned upon if you take a lunch break whether you're a salaried store manager, salaried service manager, or hourly employee. The words "we don't take lunches around here" were uttered by upper management on more than one occasion. That was said while expecting your store/service management team along with hourly sales staff to work bell to bell every day they were scheduled. From 7:30am to at least 8pm each day. On your feet, on concrete and again with no breaks paid or unpaid. Just doesn't happen. Their pay is sub par for the industry and there bonus plan is sold as a wow plan but is more like a dud plan. Spiff plans for sales.... laughable. You never see a p&l to see where all the numbers are based on at the store level. How do you tell a Manager to run it like he owns it but he never sees a P&L??? You never know how much your profits are to calculate bonuses or just know what your business looks like from the inside. They keep that hidden at headquarters. They say we are here to coach and build up the team but in reality they will take that bonus or spiffs if you don't jump through every hoop they set in front of you. They make it unobtainable. You will never reach that 100% mark. They find every way possible to take what little you earn away from you in those bonuses and spiffs. The upper management for this area sent to recruit you puts a song and dance routine together so perfect to get you to come aboard it would make even the most greasy "used car salesman" seem like a saint. Once you're in, you tell yourself......... I really just screwed myself and let my family down. – less

Good solid job
Mechanic (Former Employee), New Albany, OHApril 14, 2014
Pros: pay, equipment available, and hours
Cons: management
I really liked this job on the fact that the pay was reliable and you was able to make money even though we had dead days cause I made hourly plus commission. As far as advancement in the company it has – more... a high rate of advancement opportunitys and thats what I did started as a Tire Tech and worked my way up to Mechanic position. Only downfall was we went through to many managers and all of them tried to run the shop differently which made it a sometimes difficult work place. – less

alot of hours
Service Manager (Former Employee), Winchester, KYNovember 19, 2013
Pros: good bonus
Cons: everything else about the company is a con..
Work alot of hours with no breaks at all. Expect you to stand for 12-14 hours a day and not sit. If a district manager came in and u was sitting(even after standing for 10+ hours) they would write you up and threaten to fire you. Use to be a great place to work but new higher management made it unbearable to work for. Wouldn't approve vactions even if you posted it 3 months in advanced

Fast paced back breaking workplace
Tire and lube technician (Former Employee), Batavia, OHApril 15, 2013
Pros: co-workers, and teamwork. company supplied tools.
Cons: short breaks. long days. heavy lifting
A typical day would be working an eleven to twelve hour shift mostly non stop with little time for breaks.
I learned how to use a tire balancing machine, and a machine that was used to break down tires – more... and replace rims, and tires as well. Also learned how to maintain air pressures or (psi), gauges, air hoses, and replace studs, and use a variety of air powered tools.
My immediate managers were very respectable, and great managers.
Most of my co-workers were great, and i got along with them fine.
The hardest part of the job was the continuous heavy lifting.
The most enjoyable parts of the job were the people i had the pleasure of meeting. Also the opportunity to learn new skills, and techniques. – less

Tire Technician (Former Employee), Lawrenceburg, INDecember 4, 2012
Pros: free lunchs
Cons: pay
Tire Discounters is a good place to work to get experience. Pay is not good, but you get to learn alot of cool stuff. The managers are not total drill Sargents, but they run the store like they are supposed to. Hardest part of the job is knowing that you dont make alot. Most enjoyable is your co-workers. They make the day go by better.
