Good but not enough money for the work.

I have been working at Goodyear full-time (less than an year)

Pros

great work enviroment, great for start in automotive repair and service, good hours, flexible schedule as far as days off.

Cons

too much work very little pay, they expect too much for the money, you will never in your entire life working there get not even half an hour of overtime, as a general service employee you must know you do not get any benefits such as vacation, holiday pay, sick time, or personal days. and if day is slow you will most likely get sent home!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

if a store closes at 7 and a costumer comes in last minute and employee stays to help and he works 9 hours instead of 8 because he stayed to help there shouldn't be a reason why he should take a two hour lunch to avoid over time, and every position should be eligible for vacation, sick days and personal days just like the rest of the employees. in the end i believe everyone works just as hard. there shouldn't be a reason to differentiate depending on position.

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

    I worked at Goodyear

    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.
