    I worked at Goodyear full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a steady job. The pay isn't great, but it's not terrible either.

    Cons

    The associate benefits have been eroding year after year. Depending on the management team you end up with will decide on how things are. They preach that associates come first, but in all actuality it's all about the profits. They have become too big for themselves.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to start taking care of your most important assets. The people

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

    Pros

    Most of my colleagues were great and kept a light environment.
    Manager was flexible to my schedule while I was in school.
    I learned a lot while I was there.
    Even after what my cons are, my manager was a good one.

    Cons

    Certain colleagues just couldn’t keep anything organized.
    Every time it seemed corporate came up with something good, they turned around and messed it up colossally.
    At my location we constantly had broken equipment that slowed us down
    Pay was better than where I came from, but when I asked for a raise my manager always came up with a reason he couldn’t take it to the DM
    Upper management themselves

    Advice to Management

    Once you find something that works we’ll stick to it. Invest some money into the locations and expand them or get them new equipment.
    The customer is not always right! Don’t punish your employees because the customer said they saw a certain tech doing something when they never even touched the car!

    Pros

    Decent pay, good health benefits.

    Cons

    Very hot environment, poor management

    Advice to Management

    Bad work conditions, management ignores safety hazards only care about making production very short handed no relief for breaks. Very low morale in the workplace and supervisors just don’t seem to care.
