    I worked at Dealer Specialties full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Zero micro managing. You see your managers about five to ten times a year. Decent pay for brainless work. Company car is nice and the pay is half decent for the amount of hours you work.

    Cons

    Looking back, my management team was literally half retarded minus one guy who ended up leaving anyway. I was in north jersey, a great spot but other parts of the country I know it's hard to earn decent income. This is a dead end job, zero room for advancement and even if you are promoted to a manager the job doesn't pay well at all

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending like people actually take you serious; your job is a joke

    Pros

    The only good thing about this job is the flexibility to work without being micromanaged. The problem is you ending up working many hours with out getting paid.

    Cons

    The company is very disorganized and does not have any leadership.

    I have been working at Dealer Specialties full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Loose, casual atmosphere with flexibility. Generally speaking, managers are understanding and not overly concerned with employees who meet expectations.

    Cons

    Compensation is less than desirable in almost all departments. With a lot of changes happening at the management level, the company seems to be a bit shaky. Benefits are average. Lack of support and tools to meet job requirements. Training is very poor.

    Advice to Management

    I would seriously consider listening to your employees, and finding a way to better compensate from the bottom up. This company allows a lot of very good talent to go out the door, costing your much more than to hire them at more competitive wages.

    I worked at Dealer Specialties full-time

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere and if you don't work you can hide for a long time.

    Cons

    Culture is awful and has gotten worse lately. Entire organization is in a coma and morale is like a funeral. Too many bosses with too many agenda and personal plans. High level of politics and back stabbing.

    Advice to Management

    Needs a complete overhaul of a dying business.

    Pros

    They have heat in the winter and AC in the summer. They have a paved parking lot with lights that come on when it's dark, and the air in the building contains genuine oxygen.

    Cons

    The people are shallow, money hungry, deceitful, narcissistic, smile while they stab you sorts. The pay is barely worth the constant criticism from the least talented of their staff, and if you don't immediately not only befriend a very, very select couple of people but do their work for them, they will paint a massive target on you. If you use words like efficacy around their technical management, you will be scolded for not speaking plainly. This is probably due in large part to the genetic shortcomings of people bred of the most iniquitous stock of humans who by all accounts never should have left the trees. Want to use your talents to make a change in the world? Give up, this company does nothing but perpetuate greed in an already vile industry whose standards fall just short of those held by cannibals and lawyers.

    Advice to Management

    Read a book. One preferably well illustrated with defining footnotes for any multisyllabic words that may frighten you or make you feel less adequate as a self professed, English speaking mammal (though that last part is most definitely questionable as I wonder if you must sleep under infrared light to moderate body temperature). Thanks for costing me, and my wife and children, our house you worthless reprobate.

    Pros

    They pay a good portion of your benefits

    Cons

    Senior reps get the good high volume accounts, newbe's get low volume accounts. Can't work or make money when it rains.

    Advice to Management

    Put down your cell phone and get more involved with the business.
