    Pros

    You will not be accountable for anything. You will be able to work from home.

    If you suck up to your boss you will progress (no need for qualifications or experience at this joint).

    Retail Managers in there tyre network were great to work with, so much intelligence in the stores, however management never listened to the poor buggers!

    Cons

    Leadership is non existent! There are no genuine opportunities for training/ development.

    You will be paid poorly with little to none benefits. You will be required to have KPI's but you won't be required to achieve them which I guess is why no one will hold you accountable for what you are actually being very poorly paid to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I thought I had seen bad senior/ executive leadership before.. But this takes it to a whole other level. What an incompetent group! Very much have a 'know it all' mentality, but have no idea on what is actually going on in the business or on the retail floor.

    Pros

    Wonderful Human Resources Available, good tech's

    Cons

    Not all middle management had the skills to motivate properly,,,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to check themselves, if a store is doing well with a certain of person, bring him in, discuss his method and have HIM train those who manage by intimidation. This unfortunately seems to be a path many firms are not following up on.
    When your turnover in a certain area is high, generally there needs to be an investigation. Find the answers and increase your revenue.

    I have been working at Goodyear

    Pros

    The compensation is a as much as you will ever receive for a factory position. The benefits and insurance is ok.

    Cons

    Pay scale makes you wait 3 years until you go to top rate. No raises at all for three years. Grandfathered employees make more than new hires will ever make for the same job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication between are managers is lacking. Very cut throat environment.

    Senior management not fair, a lot of politics, management protects their bonus pay even if it means laying off good employees
    Company consistently hires and layoff people, even if you have great performance reviews.
