    Pros

    Great Sales Experience, Fast paced work environment, there are many training workshops for employees who wish to extend their automotive knowledge for the tire business. There are also opportunities to move up within the company.

    It is preference to be a full time employee, there are changes if staff often, and sometimes even management.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to make smart business decisions, and hire employees who want to stay with the company long-term and have previous automotive experience.

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

    Pros

    For many years Goodyear was a great place to work and had great benefits. That all changed when they started letting finance people come into the ranks of the sales divisions.

    Cons

    Top level executives (VP's) should not have authority to eliminate jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Sales is the backbone of the Company. Back when there were Regions/District offices all across the US there needed to be some changes. But instead of removing the low performers they kept them and got rid of those with many years of service forcing them to retire or relocate. Top performers got to that level because they were top performers.
