We’re a company of 7000 passionate and responsible experts looking for more of the same to join our team. When you become a part of our family, you’re not just getting a job; you’re gaining a future with a company that believes in taking care of its own. That’s why half our profits go right back to our employees through programs such as:
All our employees have a couple things in common. They’re not only experts in our industry, but also, whether they’re a manager or hourly employee, they all started from the same place: the beginning. This means they all started doing very basic tasks for our customers.
We have never hired a store manager that wasn’t already working for us. This isn’t a gimmick, it’s a vital part of what makes us stand out from the competition. Our employees’ loyalty to the company comes from our endless efforts to take care of them through competitive benefits packages and wages. Since half our store profits go right back to those stores, we compensate our employees for their expertise in a way that gives them more than just a job, but also a future.
This philosophy has helped our business grow to over 425 stores in the western United States. As our founder, Les Schwab, once said, “The strength of Les Schwab comes from our great employees and great customers. You can’t have one without the other.” So if you think you have what it takes to be one of those great employees, why not fill out an application? You can be sure you’re doing the right thing.

Area Manager - Coeur d'Alene, ID
I graduated from mechanic school in Phoenix, Arizona before starting my career as an alignment technician in the Les Schwab store located in Mountain Home, Idaho. I worked my way up to an assistant manager position in the Spokane, Washington store. I was later promoted to manager of the Burien, Washington store and then transferred to Manager of the Coeur d’Alene, Idaho store where I also serve as Area Manager for Northern Idaho and Montana. Today, 30 years after starting my career with Les Schwab, there are over 420 stores. Working for Les Schwab has been an unbelievable experience. The company truly values its employees and provides amazing benefits, like a generous medical, vacation, and bonus and retirement program. I look forward to continuing my career with Les Schwab – and providing more incredible employees with all the benefits of working for Les Schwab.
Manager - Sellwood, OR
I started working for Les Schwab part-time during high school at Headquarters. After leaving for a few years, I came back and started working in the Distribution Center in Prineville, Oregon and over the next 3 years transferred between the Distribution Center and the Store Accounting Department at Headquarters. Ready for a change, I transferred to our Klamath Falls, Oregon store as a Sales & Service employee. After 1½ years, I transferred to Sales & Service at the Bend, Oregon Cooley Road store for another 1½ years. After 3 years in Sales & Service, I was promoted to Assistant Manager of the store located in Madras Oregon. I spent 2½ years at the Madras store before promoting to my current position as Manager of our Sellwood store located in Portland, Oregon. Having worked in several departments of the Company and in different stores has really helped me to understand what’s important as a member of management. This company has many opportunities to choose from and rewards those who show teamwork and dedication.
