Manager (Former Employee) – Rancho Cordova, CA – February 16, 2019
Most leaders are proud of their position and the company itself. After all, they've put in the time and effort and now find themselves in a position of leadership. All those fortunate enough to be in a position of management should ask themselves a simple question that will make them look at their team differently: "Are my employees proud of their roles, and the company?"
If you have to spend too much time thinking about the answer, then you probably have some work to do. It all boils down to one word: culture.
I have worked with many leaders whose teams were fundamentally dispassionate and it affected both their behavior and their performance. This culture affects everyone, regardless of the role. Creating the right culture is a great way to keep your people and guaranteeing you deliver consistent, strong results. I have used and seen the following three techniques really produce great results: 1. Recognize achievements regularly. As a leader, you expect and hope that your employees demonstrate a quality work ethic because it's their job to do so. But a bit of encouragement goes a long way. When you recognize their accomplishments, both privately and publicly, they feel good about what they do and it motivates them to continue striving to be even better.
Wasn't the best job but they'll hire almost anyone
Service Technician (Former Employee) – Maplewood, MN – February 18, 2019
Didn't really look forward to coming to work everyday, some coworkers don't really care about working together depending where you get placed for the day, some can be incompetent. My manager was a really cool dude at least so that's why I stayed longer than I should've.
Fantastic place to work surrounded by great people who share a passion for success and growth. I am happy to have had the opportunity to learn what

Tire Technician (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – February 11, 2019
Discount Tire was okay but the management expect too much in little time but are at least patient enough to meet you half way other than that sometimes the work environment is often hostile but that's because certain individuals expect more, however they are willing to teach you and guide you. albeit in a stressful environment but that's just because its faced pace.
Top Manager retail and wholesale (Former Employee) – So california ar multiple stores – February 11, 2019
Would want too talk to someone one on one I have been held back and deserved to advance in the company and was not informed I have been left alone to handle what comes forth and make my own decisions depending on the circumstance.
I would want what is best for the both of us and what is best
No breaks management that would treat you as the person iam
Had a great 10 years working for Discount Tire Company. I learned a lot of my current business skills working for the company and would recommend anyone who is not interested in college as they will learn a ton of relevant business experience

Tire Technician (Former Employee) – Sioux City, IA – February 8, 2019
This was a new experience working in this field. The company itself is pretty good. The training was lacking in its program. It took a long time to complete training due to the managers scheduling. No real areas for advancement. Pay and hours were not the best. No guaranteed hours instead they ran this facility on an as needed basis pretty much. Lot of room for improvement needed at this location.
Decent managers, flexible schedules, good group of staff, bonus checks
inclement weather issues/concerns, not guaranteed hours, unable to work evenings since they close at 6pm
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) – North Richland Hills, TX – February 7, 2019
Hands down the best company to work for if you are a focused, hardworking individual that loves to be apart of a TEAM. Discount Tire takes very good care of their employees as well as offers many incentives/rewards for work done safe and proper.
This job is not for everyone. I've been one of the top Tire Technicians at my store for almost as long as I've been there. The volume of customers and vehicles we have daily is enough to stress out a lot of people. If you hang in there, trust your training and your skills, move as fast and as safely as you can, you can be successful as a Tire Technician.
Every store's atmosphere is a little different, but that can only be expected, as each person is different. The people you'll work with are great; trust that the Manager and the Assistant Managers will take care of you. The managers are very caring, and always want to help you achieve your dream, even if that means not staying within the company. The hours are flexible, and if you're a student, they can make your hours fit within your school schedule.
Free and paid lunch on hectic busy days (usually sales days)
Part-time health benefits and in-network providers are different from that of full-time.
