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 (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are the best asset. Lots of industry experience. The benefits and vacation time are pretty standard for the indystry.

    Cons

    Company sales goal are always double digit year over year. Managment controls your bonus not you and your efforts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start paying attention to what your employees are telling you. Perhaps if you listen to what they're saying you wont get body slammed like you did in the Staff Scan this year. It was no shock to the majority of account managers the Staff Scan took a big hit. The results were much worse than upper managment could have expected. It was the ONLY WAY the account managers could get your attention and I expect it will have to happen again.

    Pros

    The partner's are great, benefits and pay are competitive and the company profit sharing is amazing. Most of the people that you work with are also genuine, smart and friendly.

    Cons

    The partner's vision and principle's are being mashed, destroyed and perverted by middle managers. There is way to much insecurity, distrust, backstabbing at the director, VP and senior management levels. They have no clue how to train and develop good employees and are watching as they flee the company. They are so afraid of someone finding out their shortcomings or of smarter employees taking their jobs that they chase talent away. This is not in every department, but there are at least two that are being decimated by bad management. I have never worked with such terrible management in my entire career. Inept and malicious in some cases, it is sad to see them destructively killing the friendly and rewarding culture Dealer Tire once had.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at departments with high turnover...and then look directly at the management of those departments. Those are the people that are slowly dismantling your company. A change is need to get back to the culture that you so highly prize and back to the good company and culture that was in place about three years ago.
