    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

    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.

    Pros

    Family owned.
    Been a part of the Community for over 100 years. The shop that I work in has been a part of the community for over 37 years. I get to meet new people every day and they are some of the best people you would ever be blessed to meet

    Cons

    No structure.
    The company I work for is a very good company so I don't want you to take these cons as a reason not to come there. The owner is an extremely busy lady but she tries to be a part of the company way too much

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. Close-knit team. Very strong safety oriented culture. Good training.

    Political. Like to fill upper management positions with people off the street. Good management/business philosophies that are not actually followed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    support your lower level managers and recognize performance by promoting from within

    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.

    Pros

    Good working conditions. Rewarded for hard work.

    I worked at Goodyear as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people are very friendly, down-to-earth, and helpful, especially as there is a lot of on-the-job learning. It's a good place/position for an engineering student seeking industrial experience.

    Cons

    It can be a dirty, fast-pace, and stressful environment in the manufacturing plant. Sometimes, a lot of things can go wrong, which delays any forward progress or experimentation engineers are seeking to achieve.

    Pros

    There are positive learning experiences to be had at Goodyear. People are generally friendly and willing to help, especially at the plants.

    Cons

    Office politics are hard to avoid. Lots of good leaders leaving because of the caustic culture. Sometimes decisions made are only those that look good, but are not necessarily good for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work to reduce the politics of the company. Work to flatten the structure of the company.
