Pros

Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company has world wide brand recognition. Someone did a study once that something like ninety percent of people on earth associated Goodyear with tires. That is priceless.

Cons

Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company is an old and insular company. It is run by mid level mangers interested chiefly in kingdom building. They do not care for nor engage employees appropriately. If you manage to hitch your career to the right coat tails you can go far but that is dangerous to. Middle to upper management will openly tell you and they are all one mistake from being kicked right out the door.

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

    Pros

    Compensation is among the best in the industry. Most people who work there are very nice and helpful. Job security.

    Cons

    They feel that they pay you well enough that they own you- your time, your opinions and your thoughts. There is a very rigid line of communication up the hierarchy. Those who are put in the position to talk to management are those who are willing to have their ideas and opinions told to them by others.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to new ideas. Listen to all employees- not just the "yes men". If you don't you won't know what is really going on.

    I have been working at Goodyear full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    great work enviroment, great for start in automotive repair and service, good hours, flexible schedule as far as days off.

    Cons

    too much work very little pay, they expect too much for the money, you will never in your entire life working there get not even half an hour of overtime, as a general service employee you must know you do not get any benefits such as vacation, holiday pay, sick time, or personal days. and if day is slow you will most likely get sent home!

    Advice to Management

    if a store closes at 7 and a costumer comes in last minute and employee stays to help and he works 9 hours instead of 8 because he stayed to help there shouldn't be a reason why he should take a two hour lunch to avoid over time, and every position should be eligible for vacation, sick days and personal days just like the rest of the employees. in the end i believe everyone works just as hard. there shouldn't be a reason to differentiate depending on position.
