    I have been working at Bridgestone Americas full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Plenty of overtime for the people that wants it. Easy to move up on the floor.

    Cons

    No outside life unless you have a staff position which usually is very difficult to get because most are based on seniority and or experience. Degrees are favored but not necessary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management need to make more programs/options for people trying to work their way up from the bottom. It is impossible to get experience when people that has been there for years show favoritism to more experienced employees. Also with the swing shift work schedule there is no option to get any management experience outside of Bridgestone. This problem makes Bridgestone an unfavorable long term option among jobs for younger people looking to pursue a career in management.
