A Long Unsure Journey

E/C Trk and Relief (Current Employee)
Danville, VA

I have been working at Goodyear full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe pay and insurance are the upsides. When times are good overtime is abundant. But without discipline you can ruin your body in a matter of years.

ConsWorking too much overtime can put a stress on the family. Divorce rates are high. Cancers and respiratory problems are common in Goodyear. There are stressful situations with any job so patience and erring on the side of caution is helpful.

Advice to Senior ManagementA college education is great but is jacks**t compared to having a working knowledge of how things are done on the floor.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

No communication and lack of training between management and employees makes working at Goodyear extremely aggravating.

Danville, VA

I have been working at Goodyear

ProsGoodyear has great benefits as far as the insurance. The pay is also some of the best in this area as far as factory work.

ConsThe training at the plant is almost non existent. Floor managers in my area do not care about the concern for their employees. The communication in this plant is the worst Ive seen anywhere.

Advice to Senior ManagementTreat people with some respect. By properly training your employees initially, they will be far more productive later down the road. Some communication within the department would make the employees feel a little more like they cared.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

A Blessing and a curse....

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Danville, VA

I have been working at Goodyear

ProsExcellent salary and benefits for workers lacking education.
Potential to advance to salary positions if you have the required qualifications.

ConsPoor work and personal life balance. Workers are expected to have a one percent or less yearly absence rate, which averages out to three days a year. There are no exceptions to the policy(except for deaths in the family, military, jury duty, etc.)
Salaried employees work mandatory overtime and often work many 12 hour shifts with no time off.
The technology within the plant is outdated, especially concerning inventory and production.
Senior management do not listen to employees' suggestions for improving operations.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo away with the 'buddy-buddy' system and hire according to qualifications.
Listen to your employees.
Happy employees offer better performance.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
