    I worked at Bridgestone Americas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Ability to advance is there.

    Cons

    Commonly interview for locations close to home and upon background check and hire, the company makes a habit to put you in a different location further and less convenient. Was hired for one position and put into the system as a much lesser position without explanation for two months. This bait and switch tactic happened with numerous other hires. Was not paid accurately for overtime worked. Was not given access to system to verify hours worked for two months. Worked at several locations and at each people were forced to work off of the clock by management due to under-staffing or direct instruction. Hostile work atmosphere and discrimination were allowed for over a decade at one location as were several wrongful terminations that culminated in at least one very successful large lawsuit -- yet manager was kept in place. Favoritism. You will be lied to about spiff, bonus and overtime structure and pay during interview -- in my experience I was being paid 2k less than what I was told to expect per month. H.R. intentionally avoided complaints and didn't resolve matters. Several people made reports and H.R. didn't even speak with these employees before closing the complaint and said employees were wrongfully terminated shortly after. Retaliation both at corporate and store level for reporting any illegal or inappropriate workplace conduct. Extremely litigious environment.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to interviewees and new hires. Stop condoning illegal workplace culture. See above for the issues at hand and utilize business savvy to rectify said issues.

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

    Pros

    Some good people, good workplace safety rules, lots of opportunity

    Cons

    Lots of people who work harder at protecting their job, concentrating on trivial issues. While lots of opportunity, good positions are given to those who perform the least.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention and reward the people in the trenches, focus on production, and adequate personnel for workloads
