I was a Manager for 11 years at Tires Plus. Made decent money, and paid my guys decent also.
EVERY EMPLOYEE OF TIRES PLUS BRIDGESTONE/FIRESTONE is 100% AWARE that they MUST OPERATE "IN THE GRAY" to make a profit ....PERIOD!!!! The bogus numbers that are on each stores P&L (PROFIT & LOSS STATEMENT) FORCE EMPLOYEES TO DO USE SHADY TACTICS on customers/VICTIMS to retain their jobs. There is NO HONEST WAY to hit the daily numbers that MUST BE REACHED provided by CORPORATE OFFICE.... This is 100% FACT PEOPLE!!!
I GOT SICK AND TIRED OF CHEATING PEOPLE by the RIDICULUS OVER-CHARGING SYSTEM, and THE COMPANIES DISHONESTY TO EVERYONE FROM EMPLOYEES all the way down to THEIR CUSTOMERS...People are aware of the "COST OF DOING BUSINESS" , and "OVER-HEAD EXPENSE....but ***!!! WHERE is it humane to charge 150.00 for a part that the store pays 20.00 for?? Its NOT HUMANE, nor is it RIGHT!! ITS WRONG and that's the REASON I AM NO LONGER EMPLOYED BY THIS CORRUPT CORPORATION!!!
"RIGHTS...RIGHT!! and WRONG..... is WRONG !!!
CUSTOMERS NEED TO START checking into this CORRUPT PRICE GOUGING that this company is doing to them EVERYTIME THEY TRADE WITH THEM.....and find an "HONEST MOM & POP SHOP" to trade with LOCALLY... WE MUST STOP THESE CORRUPT CORPORATIONS!!!!!!!
GOD BLESS US ALL!!!!!!!!
