What is the hiring process?
If we feel you could be a possible fit someone will call you to set up an initial interview.

What traits does Tire Discounters look for in all candidates/employees?
At Tire Discounters, we are always looking for friendly, dedicated and hardworking people to join our team. We work hard to hire the best, because that's what our customers expect.
- Integrity: It's the act of doing what is right in order to be honest with yourself and with others. It is a top priority for our company to build trust with our customers in order to deliver an outstanding customer experience.
- A Competitive Drive: In order to be successful you have to want it bad enough. Candidates should enjoy competitiveness and constantly look for ways to beat the competition.
- Self-discipline: Candidates should be goal-oriented. They should set their own personal goals in addition to the company's expectations. At Tire Discounters, we look for self-starters with clear ideas of what he/she wants to achieve.
- Courage: Candidates should exhibit self-confidence and persistence in forcing an important issue even in the face of possible rejection.
- Accountability: At Tire Discounters, we look for people who can honestly assess his/her own strengths and weaknesses, proactively request feedback and accept responsibility for her/her own actions and performance.
- Positive Attitude: A positive attitude can lift a team up and create great energy, but a negative attitude can pull an entire team down and hurt morale. We look to hire employees that come to work with a positive can-do attitude and can work well being part of a team.
- Flexible Work Schedule: Like most retailers, Tire Discounters is often busiest on nights and weekends. Having the flexibility to work the busiest days and hours is essential when it comes to getting a job with the company. If you have a lot of flexibility in your schedule, that can be a huge asset. Make sure you emphasize it.
How should I dress for an interview?
You should always dress to impress. What this entails can vary based on the position you are being considered for. For example; whenever coming to the corporate office for an interview you should always dress professionally in order to put your best foot forward. Wearing a suit and tie or professional dress would be the preferred dress code for a corporate interview. Interviewing for a position in the shop? Your best suit certainly wouldn't make sense in this scenario, but you should still dress appropriately. What not to wear. You should never show to up any interview wearing tattered or stained jeans/pants, tank tops, t-shirts, wrinkled or dirty clothes. In addition, no matter what the position you should always come well groomed and presentable. This is your opportunity to make your best first impression. The more effort you put into making yourself presentable, the more it shows you care about yourself and the image you portray to others.
How should I prepare for an interview?
Know about the company. You don't need to know everything about the company, but the more you know the more it shows you really have an interest in the company. You should know what industry, services and products the company sells. Knowing the core values and company culture are also valuable. Be prepared to ask questions. Think of some questions you might have prior to the interview and write them down. Prepare yourself for the interview. Have a friend or family member pretend to interview you, so when you have the actual interview, you'll feel better prepared and more comfortable.
What should I bring?
Bring copies of your resume. If you don't have one there are many programs out there to help you build one. You should also bring a pen and pad of paper to take notes and write down any questions that may come to mind before or during the interview.
What types of questions will I be asked?
The number of questions and the detail needed per question will vary per position. Many questions will start with, "Tell me about a time..." or, "Give me an example of when..." In these types of questions we are looking for examples of personal experiences. When answering questions it is important to be true to yourself. Give real and honest answers. Don't just give us the answer you think we want to hear.
What if I don't know how to answer a question?
That's okay. If you need further clarification please ask. We can rephrase the question in a way that may make better sense to you. If you don't know how to answer or have never had an experience to relate, just be honest. Don't try to make up answers.
