Our Principles & Culture

At McCarthy Tire, our values inform everything we do - from how we develop a strategic five-year plan, to the long-term relationships we have with our customers, down to the simple courtesy of holding the door open for a colleague. Our values are not simply a façade we put on while we are "on the clock." We live and breathe these values whether we are in a service truck, on the phone with a customer, at home with the kids, shopping for groceries, or volunteering for a local charity.

Giving Back to Our Communities

We believe in supporting the communities where we operate.

Being Green

We are committed to saving our planet, one tire at a time.

Our Core Values

  • To put safety first.
  • To give our customers exceptional customer service so they can succeed in business.
  • To treat our employees like family.
  • To give back to our communities.
  • To operate our company with honesty and integrity.

Our Company’s Culture

Caring for each other, our customers, and our community has been embedded in the McCarthy Tire Service culture for more than 90 years, starting with our founder, Joseph J. McCarthy, when he was a young man in the 1920s. We want our associates to feel proud of working for a company that truly cares about people, one that goes the extra mile to do what’s right – in good times and bad.

  • We are proud to be a family company, and we see our associates as part of the McCarthy Tire Service extended family. Family members may not always see eye-to-eye, but we are here to support each other, to work out our issues, and to come together as a team.
  • We are committed to a safe work environment. We believe that everyone should go home to their families without injury.
  • We promote a culture of health and wellness. We offer comprehensive health benefits and assessments, online benefits and wellness resources, and support for healthy lifestyles.
  • We support a diverse and inclusive company. Our workforce reflects the many communities where we operate. We nurture an inclusive culture that respects each individual for their positive attitude and work, not for their differences.
  • We recognize and nurture talent. Most of our managers started their careers at McCarthy Tire in entry-level jobs with the company.

In honor of our recent 90th anniversary, we recognized associates for their years of service at celebration events across the company. McCarthy Tire has acquired a number of commercial and/or retail tire companies in the last fifteen years. Associates that had faithfully served their previous company and are now part of the McCarthy Tire team had their years of service calculated from their original start date. When we reviewed our records, we found that 33 percent of our 1,100 associates have served with McCarthy Tire or the previous company for five years or more. When that number is broken down, 11 percent have served for five to nine years; 16 percent have been employed for 10 to 19 years; and an amazing 6 percent, or 69 individuals, had served for twenty or more years. Two remarkable associates, Edmund Vida and James Sabol, have each been with McCarthy Tire for 52 years! This longevity of service is a testament to the dedication of these men, but also to the McCarthy Tire culture.

Our associates exemplify our Core Values in their daily work. They take the time to listen, to do what they can to solve problems, and to make a positive difference in people’s lives. Working safely, serving our customers, and achieving our business goals are points of pride for McCarthy Tire associates. Not only does this make McCarthy Tire a great place to work, it helps us deliver the best experience for our customers.
