    Great Company with good officers and products

    Next level management team is more caught up in politics and gossip than managing associates or project associate quickly get over wheeled and burnt out.

    Get an HR team that cares for associates not just new "process improvements" to the review process no one uses

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

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Working here is less stress than at a dealership for the most part. Excellent trading and room for promotion.

    Cons

    Long hours, weekends. Terribly ignorant customers. The regional managers aren't very bright. Commission is a joke. Inconsistent work schedules. No respect for personal life or family. Expect to be called upon 24/7. Don't ever think you can take that vacation abroad because you are only allowed 5 days vacation at a time.

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

    Pros

    Excellent long term history of growth and opportunity for people in NE Ohio.

    Cons

    Retail side of business was micro managed to the point of why am I here...what value can I contribute.

    Advice to Management

    New hire orientation was a complete turn off , top management message was if you think you are going to need to help your elderly parents, or take time off to attend your children's school events, this place is not for you. Cold, brutal and uncaring message by top management.

    I have been working at Goodyear full-time

    Pros

    Pay is good for what your do, as well as for the area. Easy to get to, right off off the highway.

    Cons

    Managers are treated like dirt. The employees are union, so they get away with murder, while you are threatened with everything in the book if you don't make your numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Back your managers; they are the bread and butter of the company, so make their job just a little bit easier!

    Pros

    Good competitive base salary and benefits

    Cons

    Very disorganized. Team Leaders have no clue what they are doing and has not idea how to properly utilize their reports.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of ineffective leaders. Reorganize and find a better way to be more efficient. With Goodyear, the philosophy apparently is "There is a right way, the wrong way, and the goodyear way."
