    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.

    I have been working at Myers Tire Supply full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Pros

    Good benefits and stability with a company that has been around for over 100 years. Top of the line supplies and equipment insure brand recognition among customers.

    Cons

    Myers refusal to step into the technological age is a disadvantage. Also the fact that the home office sells it's supplies to it's distributors bearing their name at a profit makes it hard to be competitive on pricing at times. In this economy many customers are looking for the lowest price available and with the pricing structured as it is, this is not always attainable.

    Advice to Management
