    I worked at Cooper Tire & Rubber full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I liked my co-workers and enjoyed working with them. Working at a manufacturing plant was also interesting... getting to see the process and having tangible products. HR would try to spread the company's philosophies and beliefs.

    Cons

    Frequently the decisions (by higher management) seemed to stand in the way of progress. Even after discussing pros and cons of a decision with my manger and other team members, we couldn't make (what we felt was) the right decision because we were overridden. It was very frustrating. Additionally, HR or management would frequently officially tell you things that were obviously not true (months later). It got to the point that you couldn't trust them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time considering the impact of decisions.

    Pros

    memories of how things used to be...employees long for management of years gone by that knew what they were doing

    Cons

    management constantly seeking ways to take more from employees...especially non union plant...management says that don't want unions but prove they work...steal pensions and benefits from profitable plant and give to less productive plants...example for one particular job pay is 28.00 and 30.00 dollars at union plants and 10.20 non union...also twice as much produced from non union with half the people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reward those that keep the company afloat

    I worked at Cooper Tire & Rubber full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    No pros if you work there except for the fact that people who do the ground work are far better people than top management.

    Cons

    Poor top management decisions and vision statement is fake and not followed by anyone. This company cannot go global because they have no ethics, even working with senior managers. Be a lier and you will win in this company. No growth opportunity as very flat organization. Please work for a startup than for Cooper Tires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your management style and please hire people with ethics on the top roles. Pay people their dues and do not play with somebody hard earned money.

    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.....

    Cons

    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

    I have been working at Cooper Tire & Rubber

    Pros

    they have good job openings, able to get another better pay job very quickly,and the managment seems to care about training, quality of the product, work condtions.

    Cons

    Some of the things that arent too good are working on a pay scale percent system. Working 2.5 years to go from 75% to 100% seemed unfair, and now have to work another 3.5 to get Cola. I knew what i was getting into when i got the job so i guess i cant complain. And now the new hires coming in now well never see 100% nor cola will only keep the really good workers away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the money back into the real workers, Let everyone have a chance to get cola, get to 100% . I could see if the company wasnt making any money but when you see the ceos, big bosses etc getting raising, getting million dollar bonuses because of profits , its discouraging to know some pay guy is killing himself making peanuts getting the tires made`.
