    Pros

    Strong solid company wish was more people friendly and shared bonus with all the employees instead of just salary employees sad hourly employees can not purchase the tires they make.....

    12 hours is hard sometimes and the low pay doesn't equal to rising cost

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop showing Favoritizm and people will show more respect back to many older employee getting away with being bullies need to allow them to leave so new employees can work in peace

    Pros

    Benefits,salary,and every other weekend off.Very good co employees that are willing to help when you need them.

    Cons

    Standards of inspection was too high due to the many defects you had to look for,the size of the tires with the high numbers,and having to trim excess rubber from tires due to improper molds.We had to clean buffer dust due to the buffer operators not keeping good brushes on their equipment.Having to flip back and forth from day shift to night shift.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    M.anagement needs to quit telling employees that they will check into a problem that you bring to their attention,and a month later,they still havent corrected the problem.
