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

    Pros

    Great Branch Staff and knowledgeable Sales Reps...that's really about it!
    Actually,everyone involved during my Interview process were nice as the day is long...unfortunately,reality set in,really quick!

    Cons

    Where to begin...the title of my review pretty sums it up. A cautionary tale to those who seek employment as an Outside Sales Rep,beware. Unless your Parents or Wife have deep pockets and you drive a Prius,best to look elsewhere.
    Don't be fooled or hoodwinked into reading their "$60k" Salary Description on their Job Ads/postings...it'll take you roughly 2 years to earn that amount of money,if you're lucky. As a previous ex-employee once stated,get ready to sign your Personal Vehicle over to the Company. I've never once seen a Company as big as this one that doesn't provide one red penny to go towards a Rep's Vehicle expense. I've worked for Companies a 3rd the size of Myers who provided at the very least,a Fuel Card. They also require too much "admin" type work...overkill.
    This takes the fun out of selling and is counterproductive to a Rep's psyche.
    Less is MORE!

    Advice to Management

    The revolving door of Sales Reps will continue if you stay the course.

    Pros

    Was a GREAT company, many years ago.

    Cons

    WAS is the operative word. Greed has literally wrecked this company with only the top few getting the money. Welcome to 21st century greed, at it's finest.

    Advice to Management

    Sell the company and put everyone out of their misery.

    Pros

    You work from home and set your daily schedule for sales calls. The territories are often large and you are not micro-managed. If your numbers are good you are congratulated and
     left alone. If you are struggling you are offered help rather than criticism.

    Cons

    The company is far behind the curve in terms of technology. I feel that the operational and technological structure is not ready flor the sales growth the sales force is capable of achieving. Product knowledge training is almost non existent.

    Advice to Management

    Catch up with the rest of the world in technology and training.
