Goodyear gave me the background to become one of the best salesmen in the industry.

Pros

The best in the industry, excellent training facilities for a person that is just starting out with the tire industry. The product manufactured by the company is the top of the line. I have sold the Goodyear product as an independent sales man for many years and have not had too many disappointed customers.

Cons

The company produces an inferior product and expect the consumer to accept the new and improved product without any reservations. The company should have the same philosophy with previous employees especially when the infraction was over a decade.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should be open minded with their previous employees as they expect the consumer to be with their products.

    It's all about the politics. Not about abilities or work ethic.

    I worked at Goodyear full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Compensation is among the best in the industry. Most people who work there are very nice and helpful. Job security.

    Cons

    They feel that they pay you well enough that they own you- your time, your opinions and your thoughts. There is a very rigid line of communication up the hierarchy. Those who are put in the position to talk to management are those who are willing to have their ideas and opinions told to them by others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to new ideas. Listen to all employees- not just the "yes men". If you don't you won't know what is really going on.

    Pros

    Good pay, good 401K, good people.

    Cons

    Still the same good 'ol boy network that existed 25 years ago. It's not what you know, it's who you know. No accountability and very few people get fired for not performing! There are way too many long-timers here so no room for advancement (since the long-timers aren't going anywhere)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A little less talk and a lot more action. Start mixing things up and make some long overdue changes.
