Overall Reviews at Discount Tire

2.0
Store Manager | United States | May 5, 2022
For young people who have a passion for working on vehicles...
This company encompasses a lot of positives but also has the negatives to go with it. I recommend this career path for anyone who has a passion for working on vehicles, granted tho you will entirely only work on the tire portion of the vehicle. If you are an engine or bodywork type of person you probably want to get a job at a dealership or other type of repair facility. Positions and Responsibilities: At the beginning of your career at Discount Tire, if you have no previous work history in leadership or management you probably more than likely will come in as a tire technician. Tire technicians are more part-time positions but working your way to full time can somewhat be reachable depending on your speed, quality of work, and additional tasks you are willing to do outside of the role. The training for this position is more hands-on rather than on the computer doing web modules which you will still need to do in order to get pay raises and move onto more certified positions such as an apprentice tech or service coordinator. Granted though whatever your "title" is, if you work in the bays, then you are still pretty much a tire technician. Be prepared to work as fast as you can on vehicles. The expected time for a vehicle to be completed in the bay is 18 mins. For those who come in with more experience and are given the role of 1 of 3 Assistant manager positions (yes 5) then your role becomes slightly more hectic. You will have your AOR or area of responsibility that you wil
ProsGreat benefits, 401k, great for people who have a passion in cars, good for first time employees
ConsShort or No lunches given to employees, work life balance, long work hours with a requirement of close to 50 hour work weeks, unstaffed locations, sometimes company mission can be hypocritical of their actions, management in stores have no business acumen knowledge

Service Coordinator | San Marcos, TX | May 27, 2016
A great job for part-timers in college
I'm going to give the bad before the good, so you'll know what you're committing yourself to. You will be in the elements. Rain, scorching heat, freezing temperatures are just the tip of the iceberg. Working an all day shift can vary between 10 and 11 hours a business day depending on what time the store finishes working on the last car. Discount Tire closes at 6pm Mon-Fri and at 5pm on Saturdays. Keep in mind, if cars were written up at closing time or before, they must be serviced. Meaning, if 20 cars drove in at 5:59PM, you're not leaving at 6PM and won't be until they're all worked on. You will sweat, you will cramp, you will have to be fast or no one will want to work with you. Management varies between stores like any other franchise. Get on their good side, regardless, if you want your days off or hours given to you. A common theme at all Discount Tire backrooms is that all employees egg on each other. When you become a regular and you hangout with the others outside of work, expect to make friends but also expect a lot of trash to be talked. It's just guys being guys. Some stereotypes: All DTC emplyees dip at work. False. Not all, but I've met quite a few that do. All DTC employees are men. False. There are some women in the company that can change a tire or repair a flat faster than you could. You're supposed to have a 30 min lunch and two 15 min breaks if you work all day. You'll only get the 30 min lunch. Usually, the store is too busy to hav
ProsGreat pay for a part-timer/college student, Company takes care of its employees, bi-annual bonuses, discounts(obviously), Will change the way you see others that service your vehicle
ConsWork in the weather and 30min lunch for 11 hr shift

Assistant Manager | Portage, IN | Jun 3, 2021
Decent place to work, and move up
I've worked at discount for about 3 years at a few different stores. First store I was at, I loved the culture and environment. It was guys constantly whooping and hollering, encouraging eachother by challenging them, guys occasionally racing on an all 4 to prove who was faster, and the oh so important lovingly trash talking. It was an amazing environment that focused on banging out cars as fast as humanly possible all day long, and yet even though you left the store every night exhausted and sore (and often times a lot more past closing time than you wanted) it just feels like you're hanging out with the dudes for 10 hrs a day. The group of guys that were there when I started all keep in touch like best friends to this day, even tho most have gotten jobs elsewhere and half of them are in other states. I also feel the need to say if you are really wanting to move up through the company, it's an easy place to actually do it. A lot of jobs say there is always room for upwards mobility, but at discount they actually mean it. If you want it, and you are willing to do the work, you can move up relatively easily. In management, we're actually strongly encouraged to get everyone promoted as much as possible. You always start as a trainee, but I got certified in two weeks then you get a dollar raise and are now a Service tech. It's not that hard from there to crew chief, then with a little experience and hard work you can be a service coordinator, then you become an apprentice tech
ProsEasy to move up, decent pay
ConsA lot of stress, too high of expectations, bureaucracy in upper management

Sales | Salem, OR | Mar 20, 2021
Good job if you are active teenager, but moving up the ranks will take years
Work starts at 7:45 and runs till the last car is done (if you work all day). Regardless of your position at the company, you will be working hard; be ready to pick up heavy tires. I learned a lot about tires at my current position and I learn about how to communicate with customers. The management is okay, the store I worked at is very strict when it comes to company policies but overlook some basic problems that I would consider a part of the problem of why they are not the best store in the area (within the company tree). Be ready to be overworked and understaffed, and because of that the 10 min break thing is not going to fly with the management, basically shaming you for asking and saying thing along the line like " there is too much work to be done or we are almost out just push through or would you rather go home on time or have your break". The pace of the job is usually the hardest part especially if management understaffs the backroom or brings up new guys too early because then the guys in charge in the backroom have to be doing double duty that the management should be doing( training up the new guys properly, not in the description of any part-time position). Also, the over-booking of work to worker ratio is pretty bad usually setting the guys up in the back for failure if any hiccups come up. Do not expect to be approached an offer for moving up the ranks, you are going to be forced into the next position as fast as they can even if you are not ready or do not w

Service Technician | West Saint Paul, MN | Aug 27, 2014
Fast-paced workplace with men in a mancave
I was considered a Service Coordinator although I never knew how to fully use the computers, besides looking up some stuff and clicking cars in and out of the bays. On a typical open-close day, you show up to work 7:30am. Grab a cup of coffee, turn on the compressors, oil the guns, and calibrate the balancers, etc as you would to prep the bays. Then if you have time and your boss is okay with it. Smoke a cig before the store opens at 8:00am and talk to coworkers. Some days are busy, some days are slow. I learned never to expect a slow day because sometimes those days can get busy and blows! You should expect to be working fast and lifting up to 80 pounds to get some cars done in 15 minutes. There's a lot to learn right away but in about 3 months, you should know how to do the basics. Fully understanding workflow takes a bit longer to grasp. But someone will always be there to guide you and help you if you need it. You will never work by yourself unless you're doing a flat repair or a special trailer tire lay-away. The typical coworker is usually a guy, age between 18-30s, and all we talk about are, cars, funny stuff, idiot customers, and hot girls. It's a boys club. The hardest part of the job is cranking out cars when you're 15 cars down and your bay times are averaging 20 minutes and if you have a mean manager, they will be jumping down your throat to get the car finished and you're thinking "he's such an a**h***". On top of that, no one had a lunch break becau

Apprentice Automotive Technician | Tucson, AZ | Aug 25, 2019
A Joke
I've been working for this company for about 5 going on 6 years now. When I first started it was a fun place to work at. Management was alright and my coworkers were pretty cool. I was also making $0.50 more than minimum wage (Which was $7.25 at the time). It was tough work, but the environment itself made up for the physical stress. I did get raises often and I would move up the corporate ladder pretty fast. It wasn't until I became an Apprentice Technician did I start to realize what a joke this company was. In essence, it's a literal cult, They make you feel bad if you're not a good'ole boy with them, and they try to make you seem like the company cares for you, but in all actuality they could care less about you. And I am not the only one who feels this way. When i first started working, I had to come to work self-motivated. It was either put-out or get-out. And I personally thrive in that type of environment because it gets the best out of a person. Nowadays it's my job to motivate new/er people because they can't be bothered to come in and do the job they were hired to do. Management puts pressure on people like me to motivate these newer individuals, which stresses us out, and on top of all that the individuals in question don't want to be motivated. Another talking point is the pay. I used to make $6.25 above minimum, but ever since the new minimum wage law went into effect in Arizona I now make $2.50 above minimum. By next year it'll be $1.50. No one saw a cost of l

Senior Assistant Manager | Washington State | Jun 13, 2022
Opportunity is there, but work life balance is difficult.
Discount Tire has given me an incredible amount of knowledge and experience, and exponentially more so than I expected upon being hired on. The company culture is better than most, and you'll definitely make strong friendships with those that you work alongside of. Advancement is easy if you are internally motivated and have a good team alongside you. This is easier said than actually done, as some stores struggle to have a store manager that hasn't become complacent in their role, which leads to them not developing their people properly or with enough effort to keep their interest. The pay has gotten better over time, but there is a increased reliance for assistant managers to see their OT pay as what truly sets them apart from sub-40 hour technicians. The hourly rate for a technician in our area is significantly above minimum wage, though even as one step below the store manager, I struggle to make more than a few dollars an hour more for exponentially more duties and responsibilities. The floor has crept up (and rightfully so), but the ceiling has not done the same. Hours vary depending on the store, but as a Senior Assistant, hours are typically around 50 a week. It's hard to get specific schedules besides being closed on Sunday if you're anything above a technician. While the benefits are good, they aren't phenomenal, and the work life balance as someone with a family to take care of has something to be desired. The expectations for appearance and execution are rig

Assistant Manager | Colorado | Mar 31, 2015
Steady work
Working at Discount Tire was a great experience, at first... You start as a Tire Technician, changing/ fixing tires, rotating and balancing customers tires, etc. Then slowly start moving up the chain. At Discount Tire there is NO such thing as "Merritt" based promotions! It doesn't matter if you are the first one there, the last one there, it doesn't matter if everyone of the customers you helped that day left happy. The only way to get promoted here is to "Know someone, or be related to someone, its not what you know, it's who you know". Discount Tire is however a great job if you happen to be in high school and want a decent paying job for a high school-er. If you want a career, I would recommend looking else where. The only position you can make "Real" money in is being a Store Manager or higher (which is almost impossible anymore). There are dozens of hard working guys that I've have had the pleasure of working with, that have spent more than a decade trying to get promoted to "Senior Assistant Manager", time after time, they get passed up for promotion by some "twenty-something year old" who just started working for the company a year and a half ago. As an assistant manager you work five days, and an average of 55 hours a week. Regardless where you live, and regardless if you happen to live 5-15 minutes away from a Discount Tire, you could end up driving 1 1/2 hours away to a different location. Assistant Managers transfer stores every 1 1/2 years, so if you have any

Great coworker culture between part timers and the redshirts who work in the backroom
Discount tire is what I would say, very stressful on the body and mind. The physical demand outweigh the pay. Almost all the benefits are for full time only. Part timers get a 401k maybe and that’s it. You spend high majority of your time during a week at work and barely time at home. Back pain, hand injuries, basically given a couple minutes to breath then you have walk it off, expected to clean the backroom with minimal time before close while management sweeps and mops the showroom in 15 minutes then watches you and barks at you to hurry up. Management complains about everything you do wrong and take minimal to no responsibility over accidents that take place. You are rushed to do everything within 15 minutes or less almost irregardless of the situation. The best part of working there is you can usually be as loud as you want and your fellow tech’s and the few redshirts that come in the back end up being ur buddy’s. Sometimes you can feel accomplished for your work I guess. Best practice is “required” to do but management can do what they want but if a tech doesn’t follow it they get taken to the office by those same managers. You’re told to walk away for a breather if you get overly stressed but really it means tell ur service coordinator you need to punch sometime in the accessories room scream in ur hands maybe cry for a second and then walk back out with a smile on your face ready to work and act nice. I guess I can just say, you’ll love your fellow workers, semi despi

Assistant Manager | San Antonio, TX | Jan 21, 2016
Part time pays good, management is not worth the time lost
They start everyone as a tire technician, with more than decent pay for the position. Stick with it a few years they ask you to be a salesman. They then offer to promote you to "assistant manager" which is a joke because you share that position with up to 8 other people at your location. Once you accept the promotion they switch you to salary with "Chinese overtime". It seems like you're making a lot more money at first, till you realize they're making you work upward of 50+ hours a week. If you can stick it out 8-10 years the actual managers are rewarded very handsomely with great salary plus quarterly bonus checks of %20 of your locations net profits. All for the manager! The pay structure needs to be changed so that there isn't a manager making $300,000/yr while the next guy below him doing most the work is only making 50,000/yr. DTC has a phenomenal culture and always takes care of its employees. Company retreats, annual picnics, sports tournaments etc. They treat their employees with so much respect and it is typically a fun work environment. If you have ever been to discount tire as a customer, you've probably found that integrity, honesty and genuine care for people are common traits found in the people you interact with, that is no coincidence its about how the business is run. The customer is always right, and they always take care of their own at the same time. In summary, if you are looking for a part time job, doing manual labor, it is a fantastic place to
