I worked at Dealer Tire

Pros

By far and away one of the best reasons to work here were the other employees and the customer base. Successful sales are almost always generated by great relationships and they did make this easy.

Cons

Although when you are out in the field there is never a "forty hour" work week. There are many times when you are expected and don't mind going the extra mile for your customer and for your company. However, they may need to revisit the work/life balance for a happy productive employee and asking them to put in 65-70 hours a week expected for the same money doesn't seem to be such a wise investment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In an economy where you are not the only game in town, relationships are key to keeping and gaining sales and market-share. The old adage of sales cures all evils should be the mantra not how many entries someone notated in CRM to inflate their productivity.

    I have been working at Dealer Tire full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    People are helpful and work together as a team for the most part.

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance, unrealistic and ambiguous goals, stale and outdated value proposition, favoritism. Morale has gone down over the past year or so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow field associates to collaborate and share best practices more. Get away from the check the box company that it has become. Lower prices because the value proposition that got Dealer Tire to where it is has gotten stale and is no longer that unique.

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

    Pros

    The training that is provided is great, they take the time to explain everything you need to know about the products. The health insurance and other insurance that are offered are good. The corporate office does have the feel of a smaller company where everybody knows everybody. You are given a company car if you work out in the field, and you can use that car for personal use if you would like. For anybody that is fresh out of college the benefits and the pay are great.

    Cons

    There is a rather large disconnect between the home office and the employees out in field positions. The employees working at the home office enjoy 40 hours a week of work. If you are in the field for most territories you can expect about 25-30 hours a week in your car driving. On top of that you are expected to be at dealerships for 30 hours a week. Then to finish it off you are expected to work at home to finish up all of the reports for the day, week, and month. Next the management. Middle management is only concerned about one thing and that is them advancing their own career, don't expect to move up in the company. They are always adding new and "better" positions, but they are lateral moves from the position that you had to make you feel like you are moving up when you really aren't. Like was said before, for anybody that is fresh out of college the benefits and the pay are great. However, if you have sales experience it would be best to look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get realistic with sales goals, and get in touch with your employees. The company as a whole cannot really sign any more new contracts with OEMs, stop thinking that you can maintain the same amount of growth that was had over the past years. Will you grow, yes, but trust your employees to do their job.
