    Distribution Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Dealer Tire.

    Interview Details

    Normal with the exception of the interviewer falling asleep in the first minute of the interview. Thoroughly unprofessional. Literally as soon as I sat down the guy was already nodding off, I couldn't believe it and had to clear my throat no fewer than 4 times to politely wake him up.

    Database Administrator Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Dealer Tire in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter for the position. Initial phone screen was difficult to schedule, but eventually happened and was uneventful. The actual interview was scheduled for about 2 hours. It ended up taking 4. They asked a lot of open ended questions and wanted to hear about specific previous experiences.

    Interview Questions
    • "tell me about a time you had to make a tough decision"   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Declined to pursue because job that was available was not what was initially presented to me. They told me what the job actually was about 3 hours into our 4 hour interview and it was not appealing. It was a little deceitful, actually.

    Director Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Dealer Tire in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Common interview questions. Ran a simulation and had a group interview. Initial phone screen conducted by HR. Seemed messy and disorganized. Brought in seemingly unrelated people for the group interview. Had people judging the simulation that had never seen it before.

    Interview Questions
    • Pretty common place. Company does not have a sophisticated selection process. Simulation was probably the most difficult thing.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Fairly quick. Just a few interviews. Some panel, some one on one. Lots of behavioral questions, but nothing difficult. They basically tell you what they want to hear in the way they ask the questions.

    Inventory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cleveland, OH
    Anonymous Employee in Cleveland, OH
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Dealer Tire in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Dealer Tire has a very thorough interview process, as others have indicated. This interview consisted of a 30 minute phone screen, two hour on site interview split into two 1 hour sessions, a follow up 1 hour interview, a project simulation, and finally a 3 hour interview and presentation of the simulation.

    The overall facility in Cleveland was very impressive. The Mueller's and partners have done an excellent job at laying out a workplace that today’s young / mid-level professionals can look forward to going to every day. There were several casual work areas as well as conference rooms, art work throughout the building, and even a massive operations / data room with real time updates of KPI’s.

    The team that I interviewed with was very professional and laid back. None of the interviews made me feel uncomfortable or stressed. I think this speaks well to the culture at Dealer Tire, it seemed pretty laid back. All communication from the HR team lead was very straightforward and consistent with what they did. Overall I think Dealer Tire did a very good job explaining what the company has to offer as well as what the responsibilities for the Inventory Manager position are.

    The interview process itself was rather typical with one significant exception. The vast majority of the time I spent was getting to know most of the team I would be interacting with on a day to day basis, both peers, superiors, and the partner level. The questions were focused around discussing my resume and a few behavioral questions. What was very different, and very fun, was the simulation. As part of my final interview I was provided a sample data set of a typical business problem related to the role, much like a case study at B school. I was given approximately a week to analyze the data, develop a plan of actions to address concerns, and put together a presentation. In my final interview I gave a 30 minute presentation and answered any questions the team had.

    Overall, I was very impressed with Dealer Tire. They have a lot of things going for them, a good culture, a great location (from my perspective) and plenty of growth.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined the offer for a few reasons:

    1.) I didn't get a strong feeling of career progression beyond the current role, or programs in place to develop individuals. As a growing company, I am sure Dealer Tire has plenty of opportunities for career development. However, this was one area that appears it Dealer Tire didn’t present itself as well as I expected given their size.

    2.) The role I was offered did not appear to be as significant an opportunity as I had perceived going into the process. This is not to say it was not a great opportunity, it was, however it was not a substantial enough change in responsibilities / scope to warrant leaving my current employer. I would consider other future opportunities with Dealer Tire, it seemed to be a good company.

    3.) The benefits package was on the low side. I would have expected about 30% more vacation and about 3% total match from their 401K program. The insurance offered seemed reasonable, but no HDHP was offered which was disappointing.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Dealer Tire in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Phone screen..then multiple interviews...then another round with the hiring manager ..then a final phone interview. Have to say that I was impressed from start to finish with the professionalism and thoroughness of their process. A good fit goes both ways and Dealer does a great job of disclosing the good and bad as well as selling themselves. By far the best interview experience I have ever had...great communication and follow up. A premiere employer...
