    Pros

    Paid vacation, flexible schedule depending on manager, multiple opportunities for moving anywhere you want within the company!

    Work schedule can make having a ‘family life’ difficult , and you will work a minimum of 48 hrs a week of full time (which can be viewed as a pro and/or con)

    Try to keep the politics out of the promotion process, it’s a given for any company but it is very evident for Bridgestone.

    The money is decent and you work with fantasic people, it is never boring and you learn so much from how to be around a diverse clientele.
