    I worked at Goodyear part-time

    Pros

    Management (in the store) was very patient in teaching the ancient (archaic) computer system. Comfortable workplace. Management was understanding about the need to balance work and school.

    Cons

    It could get very boring at times and also extremely challenging due to an understaffed store. The shop was cluttered and hazardous at times.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing really to the store managers. Although, I feel that corporate could do a better job staffing and revamping the hiring process
