Solid Company

Market Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Dealer Specialties full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFlexible Schedule, ability to work from home and outdoors. Great to meet new people all the time and everyday you can be in a different town.

ConsArea is too big to cover for one person, virtually no support from upper management. Due to field reps only working piecemeal, no one stays for long.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart paying your field reps a salary and come into the 21st Century. Straight commission doesn't work anymore. Need to find a happy medium.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

gotta be a hustler

Route Representative (Current Employee)

I have been working at Dealer Specialties full-time

ProsFreedom to work on your own, at your own pace, without anyone breathing down your neck. If you work hard, and hustle, you can make as much as $40k.

ConsCOMMISSION ONLY! You have to be a hustler to get a paycheck. At first, you are handed a few accounts to learn the job. Then, once you learn how to do it, you are given about 14 accounts (if you are lucky). Most accounts don't pay well and you will have to do alot to earn your money. There are times when you cannot make any money- broken laptop, rain,snow, Most dealers think you are a lot guy and don't give you any help or respect. NO WORK=NO MONEY.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay your reps a partial salary. The employee turnover rate is so high because....? Managers are too worried about numbers and not about good service. Nobody stands behing the reps, and they are the ones who keep the company afloat.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Not a great place to work for

Account Executive (Former Employee)

I worked at Dealer Specialties full-time for more than 3 years

ProsCompany car, laptop and gas card

ConsHorrible management. Cities change managers just about every year. In my four years I saw 4 of them. Will not allow you to sell or expand your route. Instead they will hire more reps. Dont expect to make more than 30k a year and expect to work 50 plus hours a week. You will NEVER advance in the company as a rep. Every year they lose more and more accounts due to horrible management.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
