    I have been working at Goodyear full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay
    Payed Vacation
    Possible Overtime
    Busy times
    Certain holidays off
    Chance for moving up if you want to go for it

    Cons

    Need your own tools so if you want this career then be ready
    GS is bottom of the totem pole and has to do basically everything
    Most techs see themselves as high and mighty and don't clean up or help out
    The pay is not that great if your planning on just being a gs for life
    Being a GS is probably the worst job there

    Advice to Management

    Find better employees or treat your GSes better because they are the ones who do all the crap no one else wants and are getting the shortest end of the stick working there butts off to clean oil changes tires ect...

    I have been working at Goodyear full-time

    Pros

    Job offers good pay, competitive benefits and a decent regular working schedule. Safety and morale are improving on the floor and in the midlevel areas, but must get better from upper management to floor associates.

    Cons

    High work load and stress for middle management results in high turnover. It is hard to keep good managers because they leave for other opportunities due to the working environment and scheduling.

    Advice to Management

    Work with your people and be open minded. Strive to increase associate involvement and work life balance for management. These guys are so worn out they have a hard time being enthusiastic and driving employee involvement and culture change.

    Pros

    Commission was ok. Flexible schedule. Meeting some nice people.

    The benefits was okay. The company wasn’t bad per say. It’s good for young people. However you do get in trouble if your store doesn’t make it sales.

    Cons

    Bad management. Horrible customers. Meetings. The company gives customers whatever they want even when wrong. Also, open on some holidays which can be annoying.

    I worked at Goodyear full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great pay, benefits, and depending on where you work, flexible with work schedule. Good people to work with at most levels. Challenging environment, will build wide range of skill sets if you are humble.

    Cons

    Can be stressful, overwhelming at times. But same as most jobs. Equipment condition makes job more difficult. Hard to be proactive and advance a systems/principled approach to working.

    Advice to Management

    Take a more principled approach to management. Don't let managers suffice when you can hire leaders. Remove individuals who don't have virtue or aren't producing the results. Don't just move them around several times even though you know they won't be successful.
