    I worked at Dealer Tire as an intern

    Pros

    Friendly work environment, awesome people, open culture.

    Cons

    I would have loved to have projects with fellow interns or have more activities where we were able to work together. Besides this, it was an amazing experience--the intern program they do have planned meetings, activities, and trips to warehouses--overall great time.

    I worked at Dealer Tire full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people that I work with were the best part of my job. We make the company. I was not micromanaged and I ability to make my own schedule. My direct manger listened to my concerns and gave advice on career development.

    Cons

    If you aren't in the right 'click', you'll never advance. Positions are given to favorites, most often they're not even posted or if it is posted they already have it filled with the person they want. Everything is about who's butt you're kissing to get what you want. Too much work for little and/or unequal pay.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing is going to change because the partners are in charge of everything. If they like you, you'll do well and succeed, if they don't you won't.

    Pros

    Great colleagues to work with, some of the hardest working, nicest people I've ever met. If you want a job with great benefits, that you can come in at 8 and leave at 5 (generally) this is the place for you. However, don't kid yourself that the Core Values are something management will adhere to, and don't kid yourself that you'll get promoted. They hire higher level people from outside the company rather than promote.

    Cons

    Your success or failure relates specifically to who your manager is, and a lot of the managers suck, are petty and play political games. I had a director tell me flat out that he didn't have to adhere to the Core Values because he was a director and he wanted his way.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of dead weight, listen to the smart people you hire and let them do the job you hired them to do.

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

    Pros

    Good place to start your career

    Cons

    Bad benefits, below market pay, no transparency in pay. Reason I left was the lack of career pathing for analysts. They prefer to hire outside talent and/or internal candidates that are connected via internal politics vs the most qualified candidates. Also poor managers who are internally connected are NEVER fired, just moved around. They bleed analyst talent. I was passed over for promotions several times despite winning several awards for my performance. Funny how a larger more respected company thought I was worthy of a promotion and a hefty salary increase at the same time, SEE YA!

    Advice to Management

    Too much to name.

    Pros

    very flexible, good work/life balance

    Cons

    promotions do not happen within certain departments. you will be in the same position for years working as a robot and making pennies. if you want someplace with a defined career path for your position, do not apply/accept a job offer. no position has a career path because vertical movement doesn't exist within the company and certain departments.

    management will not communicate with you. your direct boss will only provide minimal compliments and then talk behind your back about how bad your performance really is. direct management gives you false hope that you are actually doing a great job and improving. my direct manager actually told me to my face I was improving my performance and then he fired me. most managers do not belong in a management position because they do not know how to interact with their peers and team.

    if you want to be lied to and treated as a child, this is the place for you. if you don't want a successful career with a company who doesn't value your intellectual skills, this is the place you.

    Advice to Management

    do a better job at hiring qualified managers. being qualified goes beyond the resume. if a person is disrespectful to your face, talks behind your back, and makes comments regarding your race/gender THEY SHOULD NOT BE A MANAGER.

    have a manager that actually makes sense when he/she speaks. I was told in a meeting, "your performance has improved but we're going to have to let you go". look beyond the resume and look at the individual when you hire.
