    I have been working at Cooper Tire & Rubber full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It has been a good place to work except for the last few years thanks go out great management.

    Cons

    They can't get anyone to work here because of the two tier pay scale for the hard work unless your maintenance. You got it made then.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the two tier pay scale.Your already saving money on not paying overtime with the 2-2-3 work schedule.

    Pros

    Good benefits, holidays, hours, automotive, engineering, coworkers, location,

    Cons

    Management seemed to be stuck in the 60s. Lots of old school mentality. Lots of favoritism and rewards for suck ups and brown nosera.

    I worked at Cooper Tire & Rubber (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent salary for the area, plenty of hours

    Cons

    Plenty of hours... They take forever to fill vacant positions and you're expected and required to cover the opening, even if it takes 6-9 months with no time off. Corporate has gutted the benefits and are trying to sell off the company as quickly as possible.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to taking care of your workers instead of trying to increase the bottom line to sell off the company.

    Pros

    Strong solid company wish was more people friendly and shared bonus with all the employees instead of just salary employees sad hourly employees can not purchase the tires they make.....

    12 hours is hard sometimes and the low pay doesn't equal to rising cost

    Advice to Management

    Stop showing Favoritizm and people will show more respect back to many older employee getting away with being bullies need to allow them to leave so new employees can work in peace
