I worked at Bridgestone Sports (USA) full-time (More than 8 years)
Management team was very supportive and did a good job overall with communication. We were provided with all items needed to do our job. We were encouraged to submit ideas and voice our opinions, and I feel like management took these comments seriously. Employees were treated with respect.
Despite working full time for over 9 years, I was still technically considered a temporary employee and did not receive benefits like healthcare insurance or a 401k.
Advice to Management
New CEO eliminated many positions and good, valuable employees were let go. A knowledgeable, dependable employee is an asset that the company has a considerable investment in. If positions are eliminated, it doesn't mean the employees are no longer valuable.
