    Pros

    When I worked there we had people that not only cared about the product, but also our our fellow employees.

    Cons

    Shift work can be tough on the employee as well as the families.

    Advice to Management

    Management should listen to the people on the floor and handle the tires, from the millroom to finishing. I have found that what works on paper doesn't always work on the floor!

    Pros

    Cooper tire is a good paying job and I like the idea of working 2 days on and 2 days..

    Cons

    Not really much to say about the cons of working at Cooper tire..it's hard work but it's worth it..If you can't handle it go work at Buger King..

    Advice to Management

    all machines that do the same job should have the same rate. When machine A can only get 5 hours over production in a 12 hour workshift and macine B can get up to 12 hours over production in a 12 shift.It doesn't seem fair. when both machines make the same amount of cuts is a 12 hr shift.. Operators have advised their Superiors but are ignored or over looked..

    Pros

    Great work environment, especially good management and fellow workers. Even when you're new you are encouraged to contribute and your ideas are taken seriously. Good compensation.

    Cons

    Cubical work space, but that's engineering. I only left because I had relocated to Findlay to start the job and my wife and kids got homesick.

    Advice to Management

    No complaints here, though I was not there long enough to know much about upper management.

    Pay is great, the people are always willing to help, they give a lot of freedom to do your work without being micromanaged

    Dirty I mean very dirty, and some supervisors are very rude, union, and the union is not strong, benefits could be so much better high premium high deductible.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up, don't let the Union take advantage of the new hires
