Its a no compete clause that is for a year. However nobody has been bothered by it. After you quit/ get fired last thing any les schwab manager cares about it how you farther provide for your family. I think its more directed to quiting and starting your own tire business

Keen boots are my favorite. The only steel toe shoe that my toes are comfortable in. just be careful to not buy any with cloth loops for the laces like what the Braddock have. The Keen Milwaukee model will be the next boot I get from Amazon for about $175. Well worth it for my foots comfort. This job is very hard on boots though so keep that in mind. I've been with the company for 6 years and boots last about 1 year at the most.

Feeling like you’re expected to juggle everything, the vehicle you’re working on, the dang phones that go off every 20 seconds, the people that keep pulling in the parking lot, the massive messes that are left in the bays to clean up at the end of a long and very hot day. That’s not all.

At the store I worked at, you had to request the date/s you want off some time during the month BEFORE. Once that next month comes there is no requesting days off during the month, so if you need a day off during the same month then you can forget about it. Unless it’s a legit emergency then that’s the only way. Your next best option is to maybe switch with a coworker then let the manager who makes the schedule know. Seniority may or may not play a role at certain stores depending on the number of request off’s so keep that in mind.

At the store I was at for 14 months, not once was there a drug test besides the pre employment test. Not sure if the next nearest store had one either. I had a close connection with someone from the closest store to the one I was working at.
