I worked at Goodyear full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

At one time a large company that promoted from within based on performance. Still a large company with many of the benefits and opportunities that come from being a large employer.

Cons

No longer interested in retaining long time employees. No longer is interested in being the best or largest at what it does.

Advice to Management

Get back to a five year plan and stop giving up a plan in favor of next quarters earnings.

    I worked at Goodyear full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There were some good people that worked there. I was able to make a few long term friends. That's about it.

    Cons

    I did anything from oil changes and tires to fluid flushes, suspension replacements and alignments and was paid a low hourly wage for it. Discount tire actually pays more to do just tires. Regional managers kept moving store managers and service managers around, completely destroying the team dynamics of each location. They would bend over backwards to keep the business of lousy customers, but cared very little for their own employees. Managers would also hire completely incompetent or lazy personnel. It was made clear to me that I was responsible for training them, even though they were paid more than me. I would also be held responsible for other people's mistakes. Awful place to work, everyone hates going to work each day. I'm glad I left.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees, and start paying them more.
