      Lean team but CEO dropped the ball

      Pros

      Culture is okay. My department have a great leadership

      Cons

      CEO dropped the ball 🏈 big time. It was communicated that raises and merits were going to be delayed or withhold because of the Covid pandemic due to market uncertainties. Understandable! Months later the company announced profit are better than forecasted and made huge gain!! Whoohoo!! Company wide announcement.. it went kinda like this. "Made so much gain so we will add you to a raffle and you might get a bbq grill and free shirts for you! Here's for you 🍆 🍑" great work!! "What happened to the previous merrits?" We appreciate all your hard efforts. Next year we'll give you something less!

      Stay Away From Dealer Services International Division

      19 Dec 2018 - Account Executive 
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      - Excellent employee purchase program, but then again, you're also paying to customize your own vehicle, in hopes that it will promote their products and services. - Does allow for better than average work / life balance. - Excellent 401K program.

      Cons

      - Changing targets for hitting commission payments. - Inability to be price competitive in certain markets. - Parent company owns several brands. Account Execs often find themselves competing with vendors who purchase from Transamerican Wholesale at rates cheaper than if buying internally. - Very poor management at regional and national levels. - Very negative environment which trickles down from top of the organization. - Either prosper in a market that thrives, or starve in a smaller market that may not be open to the products and services offered by DSI. - If you interview with this company, they will show you phenomenal earnings numbers based on reps who are in very strong markets. Actual numbers will not be consistent numbers they will show you. - Often change course of what is the "new focus". They will pump up a promo or program and beat everyone up on it daily, then abandon it as if it never existed. - Very accusatory environment. Almost a feeling of "You're never doing enough".

      Pros

      The RRSP plan is decent

      Cons

      • Drinking on the drop by store managers • Excessive drinking and drug abuse in the shop during, and after store hours (staff and customers could get severely injured or killed) • The managers will sabotage your work to create reasons for write-ups • They regularly forgo provincial and federal laws to screw over the employees • The manager's motto is "take their money first, then worry about getting the parts" • Managers sell and steel warranty parts for their personal benefit • They will threaten your job to force you to work overtime
