Delivery Driver (Former Employee) – Levittown, PA – February 13, 2017
Work/life balance is non-existent. You work until the tyrannical powers say you can go home. No advancement whatsoever. No matter your position, you will be cleaning the warehouse/bathrooms/kitchen area & staying after hours taking inventory, although it's not what you were hired for. Forget about bathroom breaks due to being spyed upon & timed. You'll be used & treated like a rented mule.

Terrible company. Everything bad you read about these guys is true. Avoid.
Awful corporate culture. Rewards nepotism, discourages sharing of productive idead, barely competitive pay, 24/7 emails, useless conference calls, incompetent and closed-minded management. No upward mobility - often "higher" positions are given the same or less pay.
Warehouse associate/Driver (Former Employee) – Belleville, MI – January 18, 2017
Typical day at work; you pick orders when they come in, you load out each others vehicles, and you deliver the product to the dealerships on the manifest. If you work in the warehouse you do a lot more ie unload truck(s) in the morning, put tires away, pick orders coming in, help load out local delivery trucks, move smaller quantities of tires to other locations to make room for the next day truck load. Co-workers are very friendly, and everyone acts as a team player to get things done. The hardest part of the job is when it gets busy and it becomes overwhelming with orders.
Field Ops (Current Employee) – New York, NY – December 28, 2016
Although the company is still family run, the ideas are the same. This is a company that says they hold an "open door policy" but frowns upon employees when they voice an opinion that doesn't fit the Midwest mindset. The majority of the company works outside of the corporate office, however, benefits are only really available to the corporate employees. If you are looking for a job in Cleveland, this would be ideal, however, the support in the field is vastly lacking. The people who come in as outsiders (not a referral) feel the stress of being an outsider. The pay is under scale for median income in bigger cities.
Company car, travel, and still family owned
Unbalanced pay based on location, management are given promotions based on tenure and not qualifications, no real assistance with job growth
Great corporate culture and good balance with work and life.
Consultant IT Project Manager (Current Employee) – Cleveland, OH – June 28, 2016
Dealer Tire has competent, hard working and yet fun, energetic people working for them. It has been an honor to work in their IT department and lead IT projects here. Everyone works very hard but doesn't take themselves too seriously. There is a good camaraderie amongst management and the workforce as well.
Ignore the false, phony, tricky buy you in of good comp and benefits. IT'S NOT WORTH IT. Not by a LONG SHOT. Working for this company is beyond human torture. It is degrading, exasperating, infuriating, depressing, and an utter misery. If you just started; GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN. If you're still there, you know what I am talking about. If you are thinking of working here--D O N ' T !
This company is ruled by the the worst penny-ante tinhorn dictators at the mid management level who are unfit to run a lemonade stand on a hot August day.
This company and your whole job is permeated by 100% LIES. LIES to customers. LIES to each other. LIES to your own data. LIES to the public. LIES, LIES, LIES. You will be lied about. You will be lied to. You will hear lies about others. Senior management will ladle out the most hideous, distorted lies and utter fabrications to convince their customers---the major car companies---that they are working well for them.
They are not.
You will be tested, constantly judged, back-stabbed by everyone, and thrown under the first bus that passes by. You are totally and completely expendable. When you are hired, you are like one cigarette in the hands of a major chain-smoker: One being smoked, one on deck, on simmering in the ashtray. You will be hired, and so too will your replacement and their replacement so when you get tossed it's a mere replacement of socks or paperclips. Socks and paperclips are treated better than employees here. STAY AWAY LIKE IT'S THE PLAGUE. Because it is.
The core values have got lost along the way. Every manager wants to hit their KPIs so they're ok with you checking the box and pretending to have hit your KPIs Goals are so off the mark considering the industry hasn't grown but you're expected to pull sales from your dealers any way you can It's horrible watching people promote up when they should be walked out the door.
Depending on what position and department you work in, you can have a carefree day, or a non-stop busy stress filled day (like myself). I worked at corporate and ultimately the ever increasing work load and last minute asap items thrown at me forced me to make a decision that I can no longer sacrifice myself for Dealer Tire. If you can handle these things well, you might succeed. I just know in the end my health and well-being are much more important than a paycheck.
Nice office environment
Seeing lazy people stand around the majority of the day while I was non-stop working, some days barely enough time to eat lunch at my desk, no work/life balance, favoritism, located in downtown Cleveland (traffic is a nightmare!!)
Warehouse Associate/Driver (Former Employee) – Hayward, CA – February 10, 2016
Clock in. Pull Orders. Help everyone. Load your truck. Deliver. Come back. Pull more orders. Help everyone. The staff is ok. The job is easy. The biggest raise you get is 10 cents a year and you starts at $12.
Productive and easy going workplace with friendly co-workers
Warehouse associate/Driver (Former Employee) – Belleville, MI – December 28, 2015
arrived at work at 8:30 a.m performed pre-trip of vehicle, helped with picking batches of orders, then held group safety meetings with warehouse manage, then loaded delivery trucks with orders to be delivered to dealerships. The co-workers were great people to work with, we all got along well, and we helped one another whenever possible. The hardest part of the job was trying to make the deliveries on time, because sometimes there would be construction or traffic jams, or accidents. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting a bonus at the end of each month, because our hard work, commitment, and safety was recognized by the company.
Driver/Warehouse (Former Employee) – Lyndhurst, NJ – March 2, 2015
company was to strict with time budgeted. did not take into account accidents, traffic, slow responses from customers. would start early at times and demanded overtime whenever they needed it. not the place for anyone who has a family and is not in a mangagement slot.
