    I worked at Goodyear full-time

    Pros

    Pay is decent, there are a lot of good people at this location.

    Cons

    If you enjoy spending time with your family this job is not for you.
    If you enjoy free time on weekends this job is not for you.
    If you expect to get a good nights sleep every night this job is not for you.

    Equipment in this plant is old and falling apart. Preventive maintenance is very sporadic (whenever there is a problem with equipment which takes several hours to repair that downtime is logged as 'preventive maintenance' in order to help meet corporate standards for PM work), this lack of preventive maintenance has been an ongoing problem for years. As a result of this neglect, engineers are kept busy helping to put out fires, and are called in nights and weekends on a regular basis.

    Plant management is short sighted, maintenance departments are understaffed in an effort to meet budgets yet this results in added machine downtime. At the same time there is too much overlap in middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of excessive middle management and fill skilled trades positions.

    Quit managing by crisis and focus on long term goals.
