    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.

    I have been working at Goodyear as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    You will never be under trained. There are tons of opportunities to earn certifications, take classes, and learn new skills. The headquarters is beautiful with tons of amenities (gym, amazing cafeteria, clinic, starbucks, a mini kitchen on each floor). This was the best place to be starting out my career because I am able to learn so much from the classes and the people around me. Also, this is an exciting time for Goodyear because they are steadily growing, so I feel like that can only bring with it more opportunities.

    Cons

    It is a massive corporation... so if you are planning on climbing the corporate ladder, be prepared for a long climb. Its easy to get lost in a company this large.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that there is a legitimate need for an intern before you hire one... there is nothing worse than having people sit around twiddling their thumbs, for both the employee and the employer.

    Pros

    Goodyear is a great company to work for, with a really attentive management and a great work-life balance. The environment is quite demanding in terms of objectives, but this is how they have been over achieving over the past 5 years.

    Cons

    Policies are still under development, and need to be implemented soon to support all employees. Some of the processes are quite heavy, and this should be corrected with time.

    I worked at Goodyear full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Training opportunities abound. Plenty of room for advancement for anyone who doesn't mind hard work. Overall Goodyear is a good company to work for. On a higher level they are a very honest company with high integrity.

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance. To achieve decent compensation required to give up home life. Benefits are mediocre at best. Some organizations within the company are rather cutthroat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Certain organizations within the company seem to have no clear direction. Getting everyone on the same page working with the same core values would certainly be a plus to the company.

    Good working conditions. Rewarded for hard work.
