    I have been working at Continental full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It offers a safe and clean work environment on the new side. I don't know about the old side.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lack of communication between boss and employee. Not bad, but it could be better

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There could be a better new hire training of position, not just going over benifits and safety, ect.

    I have been working at Continental full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pays well for the area as long as it is close and work conditions are not considered.

    Cons

    Does not pay as well for a larger area especially for the conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about keeping the new people that are only going to be there for a little while anyway. Start worrying about the keeping the people that are going to stay for awhile and give them hope that some day they will not have to worry about being on Weekends or Rotating Shifts.

    Pros

    Challenging work, good growth opportunities for top employees. Job stability, chances to move up the ladder pretty quick if you show motivation and self-management

    Cons

    Quality of life in Mt. Vernon, IL is not the best. Poor school system for young kids, no major universities around town for continuing education for adults. Zero entertainment for kids or adults...

    Pros

    Pay is "good" for the area. Good benefits package.

    Cons

    New hires will undoubtedly work nights and weekends for many years to come. Promotions are not made on merit. Some technicians make significantly more money even though their level of expertise may not warrant such an increase. Causes much discontent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire some managers from other industries and stop promoting people with only tire plant experience. Pay for some corporate leadership training programs to improve the efficiency of those managers you currently have.
    Streamline the organization and eliminate the dead weight. (Having to answer to 5 supervisors is not efficient and makes for a lot of confusion.)
