    As a field sales rep. The experience has been overall pleasant.

    I have been working at Goodyear Dunlop Tires full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Goodyear offers some of the best products on the market and has a name that stands alone. Positive brand recognition helps when trying to establish new customers .

    Cons

    The down side to sales is the instability of the market. There is so much competition with foreign brand product it can be very challenging to meet goals. The company doesn't consider market changes to be able to reflect current sales situations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The required sales goals that are required to be met should be a living document and have the ability to be changed based on companies going out of business or a change in buying procedures. Numbers are based on previous sales however the customers are always changing.

    I worked at Goodyear Dunlop Tires full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good pay for the job. Great benefits.

    Cons

    The company tends to reward those that just do what they "need to do" for the day. Those that far exceed expectations don't even get a simple "thank you." Work environment is usually not a very clean environment which is easily noticeable upon entering the facility. There are no raises unless you are in a management position. This company, like most others at this time, are only concerned with ways to lower the pay for individuals and not with moral, health, and well being of their workers. I worked for this company for 17 years and watched it go downhill the day Sumatoma rubber sold the Dunlop brand to Goodyear. Before Goodyear owned it, nearly every car in the parking lot had Dunlop tires on them and the people were treated good. Now drive through the parking lot and not even half the vehicles have their own product on them. Benefits, pay, and employee appreciation went through the floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn from the way Dunlop was ran BEFORE you bought the company. Most importantly, listen to your people... The ones actually doing the work...

    Pros

    Goodyear has a decent healthcare package, but this does not offset the low pay that they offer, even after 10+ years of service.

    Cons

    There are no perks, as Goodyear micro manages everything. Managers do not have needed repairs done in the shops, as well as employees cannot perform to the best of their ability due to this reason. Managers are more concerned about keeping costs low, at the expense of endangering their employees, so that the end of the year manager bonus is larger

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everytime people come from Akron for inspections, there is a notice sent out to all District Managers as well as store mangers. So in turn, the Dm and store managers make sure they shops are pristine, and everyone is "in order" so that they look good to the bosses from higher up.

    Why not do a surprise inspection? You would be shocked to see what you find

    Compensation is ok, but bullying and intimidation by management is the norm - passive aggression throughout.

    Pros

    I like the content of my job, and most non-management staff is good to work with. Compensation is competitive.

    Cons

    Difficult bosses. No practical way to change the good ole boy management, nor the take'em out to the wood shed mentality. Truly unfortunate situation. The company business and staff deserves better. It's 2014, not 1950.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your management at all levels psychological makeup testing. Move questionable managers out of positions of authority for the sake of the well-qualified and hard working staff.

    Pros

    The pay is fair, the product is easy to sell (quality) and the incentives can be lucrative.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs and not enough Indians. They intentionally understaff to save money, but it backfires and good people get burned out. It has good tenure but if someone has been there for a long time, the job is fairly secure...whether they are a liability or worthless. Lots of dead wood.
