    Pros

    Goodyear is a well known corporation that has tried to treat employees well.

    Cons

    They are now looking for younger people just out of college for a younger look. It seems as if company knowledge and loyalty aren't as important anymore.

    I haven't worked with ALL management but there are some that try to make things better for ALL employees.

    I have been working at Goodyear full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Can be flexible when needing time off. Most managers in the area are employee friendly. Good insurance.

    Cons

    No structure... Flat-rate techs get compensated for work offered free by Goodyear on some jobs. Other times you are forced to do it for free because " Goodyear offers it for free" Then get asked why percentages are below100% for the week. No praise when you turn 150+%. DM and team leaders don't care... about anything.

    Advice to Management

    Stand up for your help. Compensate for all work. A tech should be paid for brake inspections, alignment checks, random noises, etc... If there is book time then the person should get credit for it. Also, if authorities are calling to stay at home due to weather employees should be able to use a personal/vacation day to cover time missed.

    Pros

    Goodyear pension fund was great at the time.

    If you haven't already, bring back automotive industry senior management, get rid of strictly retail industry people and make the company great again.
