    I worked at Dunn Tire full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Career advancement is definitely there. I was hired in as a salesman and within 4 years, I was running my own store. Wage is above par for the line of work. Hind sight is 20/20. I thought the grass was greener elsewhere. I was dead wrong.

    Cons

    No real complaints. This company is solid. I worked in all 3 Erie, PA locations as well as the Jamestown, NY location. Everyone that I had contact with was very friendly and professional. The only con that I can think of is the winter rush season but in Erie, PA it's a given.

    Advice to Management

    Keep offering good products and great customer service. I will never buy tires from anyone else.

    Pros

    if you aren't lazy, you can learn a ton from the mechanics

    Cons

    high turnover rate, some employees are just waiting to get fired, but are too lazy to find a new job and quit.

    Advice to Management

    not so much store management but regional and up - stop making workers go home when it is slow - full time is not 25-30 hours a week. Then when it is the winter months you expect us to drop everything to work extra hours, and work late because the call-center overloads random time slots.

    I worked at Dunn Tire full-time

    Pros

    Great product and service. Company has mandatory training and meeting to keep employees knowledge up to Parr. Pay is good for small Corp. I've work from entry level to management. Spent 5 years with the company. Decent hours and benefits.

    Cons

    I was conspired against, loss my management position because staffs feel over worked. Reality of it, they didn't want to work as hard. I have P and L to worry about and I was simply doing my job and best performer. Yet I get demoted and later quit.

    Advice to Management

    Management should not play the favorite card. Management should have discussion if there are concerns. Not to just demote someone, especially a top performer at the store. You the situation before you start making decisions.

    I have been working at Dunn Tire full-time

    Pros

    Very honest and ethical company. They stand behind their products, service and people. Best part is the work/family balance. If you want to work for the company, you need to be accountable for your performance to advance.

    Cons

    Communication between departments could be better.

    Advice to Management

    Work on benefits for longer term employees.

    I worked at Dunn Tire (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Dunn Tire is a great place to work for as a entry level Tire Tech. The opportunity plus experience I've received whiling employed were amazing, so if you are young with ambitious and willing to learn all about tires this would be a great opportunity.

    Cons

    Management being more understanding and sympathetic.

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

    Pros

    Syracuse Area Manager is phenomenal and a mentor to me past this job experience. I learned a lot about the industry and myself in this position. This company truly puts customers first and goes out of their way to ensure customer satisfaction. I have recommended many friends, family and others to use Dunn due to its honesty. In addition, it truly takes care of its employees as well.

    Cons

    Different stores have different ethics. New employee training varies from location to location. If you have a good manager, you will likely succeed. If you don't, outcome may vary. Tire time turnaround vs. service time turnaround is not accurate. Communication between in-store employees and departments could improve.

    Advice to Management

    Keep Steve Ferrante around, he knows what he is doing. Try to streamline, all stores for consistency. Establish an area trainer for all new hires for one week prior to them being on the sales floor. When hiring sales people who can also work on tires do not throw them in the backshop for hours as it lowers their morale.

    Pros

    If you put in the work you're recognized for it. This company does a good job recognizing that you have a life and family and life outside of work. My coworkers are super friendly which is also a plus.

    Cons

    Possible long hours during busy seasons.
