    I worked at Dealer Tire full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    For new professionals, very good starting pay and benefits. Offers great access to auto industry.

    Cons

    If you like having time for you and your family, look elsewhere. Unrealistic territory assignments ensure countless hours of drive time - which by the way is on your time as the corporate belief is that drive time is not work time. Field travelers are a salaried position, yet you are required to track and account for every minute of every day and you had better be sure you spend at least 24 hours every week inside of a dealership.

    The company is in the midst of transitioning their field stuff to a new structure and the field as a whole is in mass confusion.

    These items are bad, but what has really become toxic is the culture. Management doesn't value innovation or new ideas. In fact, those that offer up great solutions or new ways to do things are seen as dissenters and trouble makers. Above EVERYTHING else, management values employees who do things exactly as outlined in corporate policy handbooks and training manuals. Your sales numbers can be atrocious and your dealers dislike you, but if you hit check marks and encourage others to, you WILL be promoted.

    Most middle management, therefore, are not good operators. They are good task-doers who are not suited to lead or coach anybody to do much of anything. And when it becomes clear that an employee knows more than they do, or can reach success without following every word of "the dealer tire way," they feel threatened and start trying to oust that employee.

    You may think the above comment sounds crazy but consider this. Every year, Dealer Tire honors the top 6 outside sales people with their highest honor. You would think these folks would be highly prized by the company, right? If you take the winners of this prize over the past 3 years, 10 have been fired in the past 12 months. Keep in mind good sales people do things efficiently and constantly evolve their sales techniques (ie make things better). But alas, this is not valued. This company wants robots with no desire to step 1 foot outside of the line.

    In order to have employees leave, the company is beginning to employ really ugly tactics. I have seen coworkers fall prey to bogus sexual harassment claims, fabricated performance reviews, firing someone 2 weeks into a promotion with the new boss saying they hadn't made an impact, illegally firing someone while on FMLA leave... Dealer Tire used to be a great place to work, but upper management can't wrap it's head around the fact it is no longer a high growth company and is grasping at straws trying to prove that it is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Admit you are no longer a high growth company and set reasonable objectives for yourself and employees. Reduce dealer count and geography of every account manager. Admit there is more than one way to reach a goal and let your account mangers find their own way. STOP PROMOTING YES MEN and start rewarding those who actually think outside of the box.
