I worked at Goodyear

Pros

Decent pay for call center work and the benefits were good.

Cons

There is zero value placed on you as an hourly employee. If you were over 25 and a male, be prepared to work 2nd and 3rd shifts, and if you wanted advancement you might get to be a supervisor on third shift.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't promote people based on seniority and then say seniority has no bearing on the shift you have to work. Also, nepotism, in this case hiring and promoting the children of Wingfoot Commercial Tire Home Office employees. Seriously bad for morale.

    Pros

    Job security and benefits are the only pros!

    Cons

    horrific hours, poor management, lack of communication, attitude of coworkers, old habits, unprofessional, closed 3 days a year, promotes underachievement!!!!!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Goodyear needs to listen to it's employees and look at the talent they have "in house" there are fresh ideas and young minds leaving the company because of current management.

    Pros

    Good salary & benefits compared to other companies. People are generally friendly. The Akron area is a good place to raise a family.

    Cons

    The company is relatively flat so there's not a lot of opportunity for advancement. Workload is very heavy & work/life balance can be difficult. Have had lots of turnover in brand marketing over the past few years that is finally stabilizing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a good hard look at the workload of your employees and add lower level help where it's needed.
