    Pros

    I have no pros - I would not recommend that anyone apply at the St. Marys plant.

    I worked at Goodyear Engineered Products full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You get a break every two hours and lunch is paid unlike at other factories. They show appreciation for the good work you do instead of just expecting it to be part of your job unlike other employers. You start out as a temp and if they think you've worked well they hire you straight on. They pay well.

    Cons

    Standing for 12 hrs and lifting boxes with heavy hose above shoulder height. Swing shift is hard to have a family life and still work. They kinda have a sexual harassment problem.

    Advice to Management

    Watch your employees closer. Some of them shirk responsibilities and leave the line and others are a lawsuit waiting to happen.

    I have been working at Goodyear Engineered Products full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some freedom with work schedule.
    Freedom with hours regarding what time you come in and can leave if you have something to do.
    No micro-manage, but this is going to be a con also.

    Cons

    No organization or structure.
    Communication is terrible.
    Everyone is involved in everyone else's job.
    Decisions are made by the group, no individual accountability.
    No direction or understanding how business works, which is why they don't micro-manage, they don't understand.

    Advice to Management

    Management shouldn't have their jobs.
    People need to be brought in that actually know how to run a business.
