    Pros

    Great on-boarding and training, excellent foundation for business minded people. If you put in the effort there is no limit to what you can do in the organization.

    Cons

    Tough industry, teammates need to have pliability to adversity to succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Keep grounded to what is happening in the field, the ideas you have are great but we need them field tested before implementation.

    Pros

    Best Products in the business. Ample opportunity to refine strategic level initiatives in order to yield value added initiatives for successful initiatives at the tactical level.

    Cons

    Value added initiatives should be a focus as those that do not interfere with a myriad of other senseless tasks that hinder the field's ability to focus on fewer integral initiatives , well; as opposed to many initiatives poorly.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure that the number one factor of a successful business operation is put at the forefront as being devoid of the foundation will not enable anything else in any business plan from reaching its potential let alone, exemplary YoY performance.

    The right quality and quantity of people will determine the success of any organization.

    I have been working at Bridgestone Retail Operations full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, upper management seems like they really care, but it gets lost between them and the store level. Pay could be better, but is just ok.

    Cons

    Weak middle management, unorganized, little to no support. Too many empty promises and area/regional managers that have never worked a day in an actual store. Can't relate to what actually goes on.

    Advice to Management

    Do more to retain good teammates, promote more from within. Show more personal appreciation

    The company is very large. It moved all the accounts receivable/ customer service position to South America,,,, How are America people going to purchase products when their jobs are going over seas.
