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

    Pros

    IPhone and computer and people that u work with are only pros

    Cons

    I can go on and on but the tmworst of the worst and most uneducated managers is the top of the top. It was great when I first started but slowly just really horrible company and all internal politics. If you and the manager don't get along u will not be there much longer.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to stop trying to grow so fast and put managers into positions they are not qualified for

    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

    Company Car, Phone and a Pay Check

    Cons

    After reading all the reviews I see that nothing has changed over the last couple of years. Management is still inept, nepotism and the buddy club are still going strong and the corporate wheel keeps churning along. If you like the automotive business work directly for a Auto Manufacturer or a Dealer, pay is substantially better, benefits are equal of better and most of all you are always more appreciated.

    Advice to Management

    Management is the problem. Try and tell Castro or Putin they are wrong. Well maybe you could get through to at least one of them.

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

    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.

    Pros

    The people you work with are great people.

    Cons

    Management plain sucks. They put people into management positions that are not qualified and as a result employee satisfaction goes down and people leave to find a better working environment. This company use to be great 8 years ago.

    Advice to Management

    WAKE UP!!! These reviews are REAL. Make Dealer Tire GREAT AGAIN!!
