I am married to a Tire Kindgom manager, and he doesn't know this, but I am getting ready to leave him. We were happy until he started this job in January.

You want to know why all these mgrs are jerks?? They work 80 hours a week and the company doesn't care that they are destroying their home life. He works, and sleeps, that's it, I AM NOT KIDDING. He is an a** all the time, and he use to be such a fun person.

So the next time one of them doesn't seem to care about your problem , that's why!! Tire Kingdom is a bad company.

I personally think that the Managers and Sales Associates should be randomly and continuously drug tested! The Lake City Branch is terrible!

The Assistant Manager doesn't know his rear from a hole in the ground....The Manager acts high all the time and the techs as well..... Just sayin' you might want to address this problem....

Tamiami Trail East Naples, FL . I just can't figure out how I paid $800 for new tires on a Honda Civic, brake line flush, transmission flush, and oil change sat there for 4+ hours and my alignment was soooo off as soon as I left that I almost went onto a canal (which was really scary as I am very pregnant)- my alignment was way worse than before I took it in!

They tell you the alignment is included when you buy 4 new tires - well obviously the mechanic was sick for that day of class when they learned how to do alignments!

When I went back the next day to get it fixed the managers attitude sucked and with an appointment I had to wait 45 mins for them to even get my car in ! I will not come back a third time.

I DONT KNOW WHY THIS IS HAPPENING, SINCE THE SUMITOMO GROUP TOOK THIS COMPANY WAS NOT THE SAME, AND ALSO IN SOUTH FLORIDA, IF YOU DONT HIT THE BUDGET, YOU ARE NOT ENTITLED TO HAVE TWO DAYS OFF A WEEK, ONLY ONE, BUT THEN THE ADS' HAVE MEETINGS IN BAHAMAS, LAKE TAHOE, ORLANDO AND LUXURY IS ALL WHAT THEY HAVE, THIS COMPANY ONLY THINKS IN MONEY AND NOT IN THE EMPLOYEES, WHICH ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT.

I have 4 new tires and front end alinemaent, about 3 month later my front tires started wearing on the in side and i tuke it back. they told me my stuts are bad so i got new ones.

i put the good tires from the back on the front. a few weeks later i saw that it was happening again.now i have 4 new tires and they are no good. i tuke it back today and they told me to bring it back thur. and they would see what was wrong.

you would think that they would try to take care of me sooner. if they dont take care of me im going to call my lawyer.

i hope that you contact me soon. thanks ed

I work for a Merchants, and from what i understand the Merchants family was good to their employees, then TK bought it. I am one of their technicians, The biggest problem I see with this company is lack of technical training.

Luckily for me I came in with Honda/Acura experience and a few ASE certifications. The company also hurt their technicians by raising are labor rate to 100 dollars an hour in a bad economy. They want to know why sales fell off, well why do you think genius?

In business you have to be adaptive to change and meet the needs of your customers, they just dont care. I am openeing my own shop soon called Import Auto Care...My labor rate will be around 55 dollars an hour and we specialize in Honda/Acura, Nissan and Toyota.

You could have made him quit. WTF

TK does pay above average wages and has affordable heathcare(if there is such a thing. Their biggest issue is lack of training from the start.

They simply hire a manager, place him or her in training status, and throw them into a busy store. In most cases the current busy store manager has no idea himself how to train.

They are too busy trying to sell their butts off as that is how they are paid. Store managers are in competition with their sales floor staff.

I hear your pain,I myself was in a store when TK Purchased Merchants tire. I Loved working for the Merchants family, since My wifes relatives were friends with Caton Merchant in Manassas Va.

The culture was alot different then, Merchants was not open on Sundays for the longest time. Until the the 1990s I believe.

They used to have employee events at Kings Dominion park. With TK it was work seven days a week and maybe take home a bonus, when I resigned I was asked what will you wife say when you told her you quit, 'I SAID SHE WILL SEND YOU A LETTER OF THANKS"

No job is worth all your time and health, its all to serve people with no social integrity!

been around the circuit, pepboys, firestone, goodyear, etc. when you have the numbers companies come knocking.

I have never worked more than 60 hours a week, usually 60 every other week, never more. i also havent made less than 80 grand for about five years now. You have to value your life, family, and health. No one can force you to do more when you are producing sales, work smart not hard.

Just enjoyed my 35th b-day with the family and i hope to enjoy many more. good luck out there, the minute you stop having fun its time for a change.

A lot of the managers at TK are a--holes. I do not feel the least bit sorry for them.

You reap what you sow.

Yea, I work there. I know.

I am a TK manager and the above is somewhat true. We are forced into working long hours and have little home life, but the pa and benefits are above average.

It tought to make 80k a year in this economy.If TK would only realize we are tired and we work HARD, if we had one weekend a month off the ptoductivity and attitude would pay off 10 fold. Other than the long hours i really like my job and i am in one of the top ctc stores in the company, i wonder how long i can keep it up

I originally posted this and wanted to follow up. We are split up and I have never been happier.

But listen to this ***. He has testicular cancer and had to have a testicle removed. They complained about him being out. He went back to work after a few days, and is now working the same hours with CANCER.

They have told him they are cutting his pay because he is not performing like they expected him to.

These people really are soul-less, heartless bastards. :(

I have to tell you it isnt just Tire Kingdom, try any Pep Boys or Goodyear Tire or Firestone. They are all the same. Only thing I can say is it sounds like your husband has made a choice for his job instead of you!

:cry I am also married to a TK mgr and it is horrible. I too want to leave.

He works over 80 hours a week, we never have a weekend together, never!!! Corporate will not allow it. But they can all go to the Bahamas next month like every year, and of course, wives ARE NOT allowed, as always. I hate Tire Kingdom and I hate him.

The only thing TK cares about is the almighty dollar, and if you don't force ppl to buy *** they don't need they will ream you a new one. But I am finished feeling sorry for him, he needs to find another job!!
