Pros

By far and away one of the best reasons to work here were the other employees and the customer base. Successful sales are almost always generated by great relationships and they did make this easy.

Cons

Although when you are out in the field there is never a "forty hour" work week. There are many times when you are expected and don't mind going the extra mile for your customer and for your company. However, they may need to revisit the work/life balance for a happy productive employee and asking them to put in 65-70 hours a week expected for the same money doesn't seem to be such a wise investment.

Advice to Management

In an economy where you are not the only game in town, relationships are key to keeping and gaining sales and market-share. The old adage of sales cures all evils should be the mantra not how many entries someone notated in CRM to inflate their productivity.

    I worked at Dealer Tire full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Faced paced, innovative organization with some great down to earth people. Organization provided me with a great deal of opportunity to contribute to action planning with regards to the corporate strategy. Organization does a great job of exposing you to industry leading business practices and strategy formulation activities. Organization is willing to invest in high performers. ( Case Western Management classes).
    Organization is willing to invest in new technology needed to maintain a competitive advantage and make you job easier. Pay is industry average and maybe a little higher especially with tenure. Privately held allowing for flexibility and adjustment to market conditions.

    Cons

    Dealer Tire provided me a great deal of opportunity to learn and grow. Every organization has cons, and sales associates are never happy with goals, management, strategy, CRM Tools, expectations etc. however the organization provides a great deal of learning experience if you are engaged and open to learning other aspects of the business. This organization does many things well. Focus on what is there for you to learn vs. what you think your entitled to.

    Some areas of focus I wanted to see improved were:
    Nepotism
    Performance Management Review Process
    Benefits

    Advice to Management

    Stay innovative, continue to invest in opportunities that will support the end customer- (Dealer and End Consumer) - Focus on field staff needs to improve job satisfaction, effectiveness and turnover. Empower field staff and sales with more autonomy. Learn from the customers that don't do business with you.
