    Pros

    Decent pay. Some good associates.

    Cons

    Management cares nothing for workers. This company uses H-1B visas to fill as many positions as possible with cheap labor from overseas. They use these visas to fill jobs in engineering, technology and accounting for which there are many qualified American citizens.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be evil.

    Pros

    For the amount of service I had at the time, I would say vacation time and benefits.

    Cons

    Service meant nothing. Management favoritism. Management not treating everyone fairly. To many cliques.

    Advice to Management

    Be loyal to your employees. You would have not gotten to where you are now if not for them.

    Pros

    Nothing at all come to mind.

    Cons

    I work for a branch of Good Year that does contract work for Transit Vehicles. Been going on a couple of months and can not stand it. They expect you to hustle your whole shift in order to finish early or sometimes close to finish. The night shift position requires two people but one is available most of the time because the employee turn over rate is high and they are greedy to pay one more person. They didn't have anyone officially train me but when the time came for the raise after one month. Supervisor claims I have more to learn and that he will show me but never does. They have OLD tools and still have you work the tires and vehicles the old fashion way in order to save save save. Terribly Run Operations.

    Advice to Management

    Treat even the lower level employees like humans. More people would work this job with better pay, better tools, better support from supervisors. Or continue to target the every day Crystal Meth User that seems to be the perfect fit for this job.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. Great people to work with. Was a great people company, like an extended family. Now it's ran by accountants and beancounters. Great learning company, not a good career company.

    Cons

    Management treets you like a number in a column not a person. They tell you what they want, don't want to hear why it can't be done their way

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to do the jobs the right way not the way you think they should be done.

    Pros

    The corporation is great, they have good benefits and the corporate leadership team is great.

    Cons

    The GIC (Miami/South Florida location) is not a place for growth or work/life balance, the office culture is more about work 24 hours/7 days a week. If you can't devote yourself to the office or the job, not recommended. Horrible human resource personnel and most of the managers don't have the skills to manage people. Pay is not good, they prefer to hire people in other countries than raise their salaries to get qualified individuals in the US. Managers tend to treat employees as their slaves, they give you attitude and find the first mistake to fire you in order to give your job to someone outside of the US.

    Advice to Management

    If you have an office in the US, highly recommend that they carry the same culture as in HQ. Make sure that HR treats employees equally regardless if they are from US or another country.

    Pros

    The store is backed by the name Goodyear

    Cons

    Owner operator has no clue. Has sold and closed 4 stores in the past 2 years

    Advice to Management

    Close your final store and make room for real repair shops. As a shop owner you have to keep the stores best interest in mind not personal relationships
