After an extensive review of various options for our new North American headquarters, Bridgestone Americas is building new facilities in downtown Nashville that will serve as the main office for Bridgestone Americas, Inc., Bridgestone Americas Tire Operations North America and Latin America, Bridgestone Retail Operations, Firestone Building Products and Firestone Industrial Products.
Bridgestone Americas is in the midst of an important transformation – one that positions the company for future success and sustainability to finally unite the company under one roof. This best positions us to develop a combined talent pool and a culture where we can collaborate and innovate together. The move to a combined headquarters helps build a stronger Americas Strategic Business Unit and contributes to the goal of being integrated across the company’s businesses and around the globe.
We will expand our investment in downtown Nashville, just a couple of blocks from the arena that bears our name. Bridgestone and Nashville have formed deep ties over the last 22 years, and we are proud to strengthen our presence in the community. Downtown Nashville is a vibrant and growing community that offers us great brand exposure, visibility and access to the lifestyle amenities that will help us recruit, retain and satisfy our great team.
THE POSITIVE EFFECT
This is a pivotal time in Bridgestone Americas’ history, and one that will have tremendous positive effects on our culture. Our teammates will gain greater visibility among other branches of the business and have more access to opportunities in Bridgestone. Opportunities to participate in a transformation this significant may come along once in a career.
We invite you to join our journey to create an environment that supports true innovation, career fulfillment and long-term success.
I have been working at Bridgestone Americas full-time
Bonuses and great company culture

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Bridgestone Americas (Nashville, TN) in October 2016.
Applied on the Bridgestone website, heard back from HR rep a couple of days after the job posting closed. Had an initial interview with HR rep, she basically just gave me an overview of the position and wanted to make sure I was still interested. We then set up a phone interview with the Engineering manager of the team. He was very nice, and very straightforward about the process and position. Asked questions about my resume and experience. After this interview I heard from HR rep about 1.5 weeks to set up final on-site interview.
