Compensation. Global Brand.

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Great job security, annual raises (minus covid year), great compensation. However lack of career growth. Promotions are hand-picked. After store management level, seems impossible to cross over to middle management even if you declare interest or apply.An ok company to work for, but can grow stale over time. Stores aren't properly staffed and lack of support from middle management.

Pros

great product, great customers, annual raises

Cons

benefits, employee discounts, lack of support from middle management

High Demand for Little Compensation

Started off as a general tech before moving onto sales counter... like any retail sales driven company, focused a lot on quotas at all costs. Worked in one of the most busiest store in the Western region and learned a lot... good and bad. Employees came and left like a revolving door... mostly due in part to the high demand of work for such a poor pay. Was expected to perform way above pay grade...Management at store level, hit or miss... but District manager and anyone above that... treated everyone as a number (associate number). Left company as a Store Manager after over 12 years of service.... HR is not on your side... their main focus is in the interest of the company, do not forget that.

Slow and steady

If immediate gratification is your thing, this isn’t the workplace for you. There are benefits, as long as you’ve got years to dedicate. Advancement is tough, in the sense that micromanaging makes you feel as if you are doing a horrible job. Anxiety is high enough in this day and age, it would be good to know every once in a while that the company has your back, not theirs...

Pros

Healthy budget, open door policy

Cons

Sometimes the open door is just an exit

no loyalty

your just a number to upper management at corp, They do not respect how hard you work or the sacrifices you make on behalf of the company.upper management has vey little or no knowledge what is involved in running a store daily. They only care about rules they make up while sitting in their offices, and even that they mess up badly per you tube.

Pros

discount on tires, healthcare, 401

Small private business tyre shops. Dodgy and dishonest, enough said

Dodgy and dishonest in every possible way. Depends on the small business owner who sells tyres, or tries to. Can’t compete with the competition and the parent company don’t care how poor their business operators are

Pros

None

Cons

Too many

Enjoyed my time with this company, worked some long hours but well compensated. Plenty of room for growth with this company and they have many different types of roles.

Easy job

The job was pretty easy. Name recognition is amazing. I wish the spent money on advertising the services they offer and not JUST TIRES. If you like automobiles and troubleshooting this is a good career.

Plus bonuses

If the store made a monthly profit then I would get a store manager bonuses. I was responsible for all of the sales, employees, inventory, cash deposit & profits.

Will take your last breath

No work life balance and pay is way below market average. Managers required to work 6 days a week. Pay raises are a minimum and an insult. They give everything away for free to customers but charge employees way too much

Pros

None

Cons

Everything

Store manager

Why would a company after 26 hard years lay me off. I guess. I must have made some district mgr made. I was 4 years from retiring . I do get a small pension but no other benefits. When I started in 1969 it was a.great company to work for. That was when we had great management. No more good management

Decent work environment - Average

In the beginning when was operated as “mom-and-pop”, company was stable. Long term employees in which created long term customers. After was bought out and incorporated a corporate philosophy there was extreme turn over, which created less personable service to customers and slowly clientele started to diminish. Come Ratterree amongst associates were low, extreme pressure for sales started to set in and created a stressful environment and affected business.

Pros

A Paycheck

Cons

Stressful environment

Great place to work

Great place to work and I enjoyed myself and all of my customers The only reason that I left was a job offer where I didn't have to work weekends and the offer came right before the owner sold out to a new company that was planning on staying open seven days a week.

Pros

Great Team to work with

Cons

Not much time for anything other than work

Personal achievements of success

Handling customer needs and making recommendations of products. That one hat doesn't fit all. I was the manager in 95% of positions I held. The culture of this main industry in which I worked created in employees a transient mentality. Keeping good quality employees. Maintaining a harmonious working environment between 12 employees at one time and finding reliable replacement staff. Achieving goals and targets set by senior management over 8 years taking a large commercial branch from a loosing money position to one of the biggest sales and profitable stores out side of Brisbane and receiving the rewards of that achievement.
