      Be careful!

      Pros

      Benefits are decent with good starting PTO, medical, vision and dental. 401K is 50% match up to 7% and 100% vested in 3 years. Unique business model that is aligned with contracted OEM partners to help their dealership network become successful tire retailers

      Cons

      Spouse cannot be on your medical plan if they work in a place where benefits are offered - this forces you to pay more in a two or more family household because of having to meet deductibles and out-of-pocket expenses. Diversity is just lip service - if you are a person of color be prepared to just "be" as promotions will just be for others. If you are caucasian your chances are better, just be prepared to be a well polished "yes" man as management does not like to be questioned or challenged. Upper management have become tokens of their financial equity partner, and the companies direction has become questionable. While the CEO Scott seems to still have his heart the company founded by his family, it is clear that decisions made don't seem to follow the culture that the company was built on. Middle management has been built on nepotism, and "who you know" rather than merit. Selections for advancement also lack the diversity the company touts as their "culture" Goals are unrealistic pie in the sky numbers derived to impress the OEM and lack transparency when it comes to understanding how the goal was determined. Questioning this leads to being labeled as insubordinate. There is an unspoken "check the box" mentality that account managers are forced into because of unrealistic expectations set forth by management. A checked box sells the Dealer Tire value to the OEM regardless of the subject depth of the checked box. This allows DT to beat their chests when reporting out dealer activities to OEM management teams. Mid managers know this happens as most of them have risen from the boots on the ground ranks - most of them forget this when when they are promoted. Bottom line is if you are willing to play their game on their rules, can put up and shut up and can turn a blind eye to a lack of diversity and fairness then this may be a good fit.

      Pros

      Great facility and good people

      Cons

      Overall was a good company to work for until the unforeseen impacts of Covid were fully realized. Hard to blame them for their reaction to the outbreak, but did felt mislead that everything was fine, as other have said, then suddenly chopped their workforce without warning. I’ve tried to look at it through their lens and maybe that swift action saved more people from getting cut.
