Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Folsom, CA – April 9, 2018
In all honesty this is a great place with a great culture. The benefits are really good and the bonuses are nice also. However, I do not feel like this job is a great fit for most people. Allow me to explain. It's an extremely fast paced work environment. Usually busy from the moment you open until the moment you close. You're constantly hounded to go faster and you have constant orders barked at you. The hours can run very long. Managers put in 50 hours a week! Then when customers come in late your 10 hour day becomes an 11 or 12 hour day, ruining your work/life balance. My biggest gripe is the sheer amount of hours you have to put in here, it's absurd. You're out of your house more than you're ever home. Asking so much out of employees burns them out. In all reality the paychecks need to be better if you're running your employees into the ground. It does have upsides though! The employee comradery and banter is actually a lot of fun. Customers are great to interact with, and you get to learn quite a bit. They offer benefits and paid leave... (for full time people). Its a solid place to work... just not if you have a family or want to spend time witb people outside of work.

America’s Tire (Discount Tire) was my first job in which I enjoyed so much, I am still with them to this day. Due to my busy college schedule and my other job, they work with me and make sure I still get hours and are always taken care of. I have learned a lot of management experience at this location and I feel that it is one of the best places you can work for. You can come in as a new guy on day one and if you try hard enough and are open to learn, you can get a management position within a year.
Tire Technician-Crew Chief (Former Employee) – Turlock, CA – March 2, 2018
I learned many new things when I first started for the company. I was well trained and within a week I was familiar with the entire facility and job itself. I enjoyed the year I worked their because we were always busy and the people I worked with made work fun. At America's Tire I had one of the best managers, he taught me a lot the year I was there and enjoyed learning how to work new equipment.
We got two bonuses per year and lunches were long.
Friendly place to work. Clean show room but slow paced and varmint and the company needs more stability financially. Potential growth in this environment but need stronger management and better communication skills
Tire Technician (Former Employee) – Rocklin, CA – October 28, 2017
Fun work place. They were unsafe and didn’t do work to standard. They claimed they were the best but they would always cut short. Breaks were reasonable. Hired new employees at an higher salary then old employees.
Service Coordinator (Current Employee) – Temecula, CA – October 26, 2017
This job is fast paced and has very friendly staff. Everyone works hard and had a positive attitude. The hardest part of the job is working on a big truck but that is when we ask fellow employees for assistance. It is a pretty fun and hang out with all the guys and working on cars.
Friendly, positive attitude, excellent customer service
Tire Technician (Former Employee) – Murrieta, CA – September 15, 2017
My time at Americas tire was not a very good experience. Management was not very good, therefor made the job unpleasant to attend. This job was a good job to have because it taught me a lot about hard work.

This was a fun place to work because of the atmosphere. It wsa a fast paced environment to work in to to the young people that worked there. Great place for a young person to work in part time while attending school.
manager is the worst, but other employes are great
Sales Apprentice (Current Employee) – Redding, CA – August 2, 2017
The Guys who work there are really good guys its like a big family but, the manager is the worst part he is two faced, can not be trusted. would be a great place to work if the manager was a different person a lot of turnover because the employs don't get along with him.
Crew Chief (Former Employee) – Santa Rosa, CA – July 26, 2017
A typical day at work would be come in an take out all the tires in the bays left from the night before. Then we would wait until we have customers and start to bring tag into the bay to work on them. I learned there is a lot of safety precautions before working on someones cars. The management was run by good people who cared about their employees but also they were in a constant rush and fast pace. The culture was fun and fast moving. Hardest part of the job had to be trying to balance giant uneven truck tires. The best part of the job was being a Crew Chief and helping all the cars get in and out of the bays as fast as possible.
