    I worked at Nitto Tire U.S.A. full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    If you are in the right job function you get to go to fun events, get free tires, meet a lot of contacts and build your resume. Many employees are car enthusiasts so it's nice to have common ground with co-workers. Decent benefits, good marketing giveaways

    Cons

    Sadly, a large majority of employees are in job functions that do not get to go fun events, meet industry contacts and build their resumes. Upper management holds all the power and can veto decisions based on their feelings/thoughts in an instant. There is an extreme lack of office culture, work like and morale. For such a fun company in the media it is not a fun office to work in. Individualism is not promoted and employees are not treated as individuals but as numbers who are expected to do a job and make the company money. Yearly bonuses were also starting to be taken away from certain job functions as well. Probably only a matter of time before Nitto merges with its sister company, Toyo Tires.

    I worked at Nitto Tire U.S.A.

    Pros

    The Nitto brand, the people, the mission, the friendships!

    Cons

    Hand full of long term employees because they don't know better. Most employees last only two years.Too many to share. HR get your heads out of the sand. Losing employees every month is not normal, especially successful and key employees!

    I have been working at Nitto Tire U.S.A. full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great colleagues to work with because of the unity we have developed on our own with each other and extremely strong teamwork skills is what keeps us going everyday!

    Cons

    You can not speak your mind to upper management or present any ideas. Don't be surprise if you share your idea; management says it is not a great idea then later on you see your idea being implemented and your manager is taking all the credit for it! Nothing is in writing; same job duties you having been doing/performing day in day out are/can be changed at a moments notice; when any errors occur due to sudden change in daily duties then you are reprimanded for the error; lack of communication to no communication; excessive long hours; no respect; dehumanizing; breaking down the human spirit pieces by pieces; micro management; constant scolding like you are 5 years old; no one to backup your work 100% while you're out of the office for any reason so you always come back to piles and piles of work to the point where you can't see your desk; hostile work environment; and very very very low pay!!! I can go on and on with endless "CONS"'!!!! The California Labor Board and Better Business Bureau needs to launch an investigation because companies like Nitto should not be allowed to stay in business!!!!

    I worked at Nitto Tire U.S.A. full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Free t-shirts, gift cards and baseball tickets.

    Cons

    Can we say no management at all?!?! Company has no structure or future business goals in mind. Each position is a dead end future with no way of transferring to a different department for growth. Pay is all over the place within just one department itself and in the same position. Management truly has no idea how to run a business due to lack of experience.

    Pros

    Small discount on tires for employees. You are not encouraged to speak your mind, so you can leave it at home.

    Cons

    Disrespectful and unprofessional managers. Employees are fearful of speaking their minds and get no help from upper management or HR as mediators. HR is poorly run and is not there for the employee's best interest.
