I worked at Goodyear full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Sorry can't think of any.

Cons

Low pay and poor commissions. Corporate doesn't understand that it takes money to make money, for example how often do hear Goodyear advertize a tire sale. Local management could careless about their employees you are just a pawn who can easily be replaced especially in this economy. In addition you get to work most holidays.

Advice to Management

Pay your employees better and maybe your turnover will drop and sales increase due to a more experienced staff. I would also suggest that they try advertizing a tire sales on maybe T.V. or Radio. I would probably drop using the stupid blow up characters.
