    I worked at Goodyear full-time

    Pros

    Good salary and reasonable benefits in a 2nd tier industry; higher than the comparable tire industry jobs

    Cons

    Claims to be operating in new management environment, but still behaves like its 1978 in many cases, Success is dependent on the manager that you work for and Goodyear is constantly hiring the new Global leader....good luck.

    Advice to Management

    Reap the benefits while you can because there will be turnover - low investment in R&D and capital improvement as a % to sales (vs. Michelin & Bridgestone) means you're a distant 3rd.

    Pros

    Your work is very appreciated at Goodyear Fayetteville plant. Union privileges for workers also extend indirectly to non-union staff. People are focused on getting the job done. Backastabbers don't do well here. Bottom line is that if you deliver results yo will do fine here.

    Cons

    Very long hours, plus have to work on some weekends. Union can make the environment a little rough. Offices are old and a little dirty due to rubber mixing plant. Pay is a little low. I left for a higher paying lower level job.

    Advice to Management

    Avoid having your staff work on non-essencials so they can work closer to regular hours and don't burn out so soon.
