    Pros

    Very good benefits. Room for advancement if you so choose.

    Cons

    The only thing that keeps me from giving the company a 5 star review is the work life balance. Hard to work some where 60-70 hours and have any kind of life.

    Pros

    Pay is decent at the most.

    Cons

    It depends on the Area you're hired for. Area 300 is by far the worst area and terrible management. Thrown on the machine super fast for production and not safety. Work and life balance does not measure up.

    Bridgestone Commercial Division

    Feb 4, 2020 - Commercial Sales Manager 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The relationships with your market area co-workers. Benefit package is decent.

    Cons

    Work life balance is atrocious due to the many 'open holes' the company refuses to fill. The ineptness and industry inexperience of the commercial divisions leadership is glaring, makes life very difficult, and is noted by the dealer & fleet network. Past industry experience is not valued or treasured. Nashville can be extremely difficult to deal with from Human Resources, marketing, pricing, etc
