Average Job for Tire Techs
Tire Technician (Former Employee) –  Numerous LocationsJuly 16, 2019
Just an average corporate gig for tire techs. Low pay, little benefits, no paid time off, no room for advancement or personal growth even if you want to become a mechanic or salesman. If you're a tire tech and are out of work, this is an option but don't think it's a career unless you're an already-established mechanic or manager. Also expect to be bid off to various locations throughout your county if you're a tire tech, especially as a good one. You won't get a pay raise, but you'll be passed around quicker than a $1 bill from shop to shop.

Great company to work for
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) –  Gaylord, MIJuly 12, 2019
Fantastic training. Managers have a great hands on approach, and want you to succeed. I have yet to see a manager that doesn’t care about their employees and the company.

1st Assistant Manager & Shop Manager (Former Employee) –  Allen Park, MI 48101July 3, 2019
Love it great place to work. Hated to leave. Should have never merged with Tredroc. Working at Belle tire is how I bought my home, raised my children, and built a career.

Auto Tech./Warehouse Management (Former Employee) –  West Bloomfield Township, MIJune 18, 2019
The Belle Tire experience was not the greatest. However, it was not the worse either. I did enjoy working with everyone at several locations but some mangers were better than others

its not worth it for what they pay
Automotive Technician Trainee (Current Employee) –  IndianaJune 17, 2019
long hour days 12+
mechanic/alignment tech commission pay(so you depend on you sales person if they sale the job)..
they don't appreciate their tire techs..
mechanic/alignment training is a joke and you have to split your pay with your trainer....
so if your fresh out of high school trying to get into automotive maybe this is the job for you but if your trying to provide for your family its better options out there.

Fast paced work place
Tire Technician (Former Employee) –  Fort Gratiot Township, MIJune 12, 2019
It's a fun, good learning environment, good work environment. You get the right manager and the right store and you'll be set. It's not a rushed work, but a continuous steady work that keeps you busy all day.
Pros
Fun, good working people
Cons
sometimes you don't get a break

Very productive
Tire Technician (Current Employee) –  Holland, MIJune 5, 2019
There is always something you could be doing not a dull place. You can always be moving and learning new ways of doing one thing, and teamwork to keep the workflow moving, is essential.
Pros
Free lunches.
Cons
Some Co-workers work harder than others, younger employee's do not seem to take initiative to keep things clean and orderly

So underpaid
Tire Technician (Current Employee) –  Elkhart, INMay 17, 2019
The GM was a 30 year old kid that had no backbone. Wal-Mart employees make more than the tire techs at belle tire and their idea for a raise is 50 cents a year. Don't work at belle tire if you have any type of self-respect for yourself at all.
Pros
Nothing
Cons
Pay, hours, management, the whole company.

Hardworking
WAREHOUSE (Current Employee) –  Troy, MIMay 14, 2019
I learned how to work to change tires, relearn tmps, work better in a team environment, how to use many of the different tools in the shop.
The hardest part of the job is the amount of work and how time consuming one job can be.
The most enjoyable part is the weekly pay
Pros
Excellent insurance
Cons
Long hours

Great place to worm
Alignment Technician (Former Employee) –  Greenville, MIMay 11, 2019
The Greenville location was a wonderful place to work, the managers are all down to earth and understanding, the managers help out when things get too busy, and everyone there is, for the most part, very understanding of pretty much everything

Fun workplace but don’t believe any promises
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  IndianaMay 1, 2019
Great and fun work place for the first 6 months then things get very different fast.. don’t believe any promises especially pay because it can change at any given point you are an at will employment and even though your full time you have to work overtime when they ask and when they don’t want to give OT just be glad your even getting your 40 because they will cut it fast and move you farther away from you original store for their benefit with no compensation
Pros
Customer interactions and discounts
Cons
Management, Pay, Hours, Not a family life job

poor management which results in unhappy workers, and people not staying for long periods of time.
Tire Technician (Current Employee) –  Fort Wayne, INApril 30, 2019
My time at Belle tire was, i would say average, the management never really knows whats going on at least at my location, and the job advancements and promises of that are here and far between, while they may say its good pay they barely ever give you a raise, the work you do far exceeds the pay you get in my opinion, and i felt as though any suggestions to make the company better were shoved under the floor and disregarded. The most enjoyable part of this line of work is the people i work with who make that job bearable.
Pros
They are flexible on breaks, and allow you to leave for when life happens.
Cons
poor management, never enough people

Be warned
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) –  MichiganApril 23, 2019
I was at this company when it was good, but after many leadership changes, it’s going downhill fast. Ownership is family who loves their riches, and don’t care much about their employees.
Pros
No experience necessary
Cons
Pay not equal to work supplied, district managers are inexperienced

No home/work balance
Assistant Store Manager (Former Employee) –  West Bloomfield Township, MIApril 5, 2019
Very little time for home especially during the busy season. Open to close shifts mandatory and there is no set time to leave work.

Favoritism is rampant throughout the company. It is common for an assistant manager to remain in an assistant manager position for 10+years.

It is also common for individuals with little to no experience in the field to become store managers skipping over well qualified assistant store managers

Awful place to work

No room for advancement they tell you what you want to hear but nothing happens
Tire Tech Trainer (Current Employee) –  South Bend, INMarch 27, 2019
Belle isnt a bad place if you have a good manager. Unfortunately 90% of managers are people who shouldn't be in that position. A good manager will help you move up in the company and get you were you want to be. Most managers dont help you move up and dont have an interest in helping. With little to no raises at that as well.
Pros
Lot of down time
Cons
No one is held responsible and communication almost isn't a thing
