Goodyear is a company that you can grow with and apply your knowledge over a vast array of opportunities within various internal divisions. It is a company that offers many on-the-job training and advancement opportunities. The job is demanding and challenging, and many assignments may require extensive travel. The best part of Goodyear is the "family" – more... type of environment that exists between coworkers and management. Decisions are made only after due diligence and actions are based on facts. Products are among the best offered in the industry and safety is never compromised over profits. It is a company that you will be proud to work for.
My last job was supervising a team of college grads who assisted dealers and mass merchandisers with sales and product training, consumer insights, merchandising, key sales driver execution, and promotional activity. My region consisted of the 15 western states, including Alaska and Hawaii. My 10 to 12 direct reports each called on an average of 110 accounts, in 7 different business categories. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing my field team grow into their jobs, having them provide value on each customer visit, and seeing them earn advancement within the company. About half my time was spent traveling to their headquarter cities and riding with them to visit their accounts. The balance of my time was spent managing the region expenses, collecting and reviewing call productivity, conducting mid-year and annual performance reviews and taking self-development courses. I also helped develop over 30 sales and product training seminars for field use. I have extensive background with Microsoft Office products, Photoshop and Lotus Notes 8.5 – less

A typical day at work I do general maintenance work and when requested I help the technicians diagnose a problem by offering my 14 years of experience and knowledge of automotives.

Pros: pay rate
Cons: high stress, inhaling rubber constantly
High stress environment but good pay and benefits. Management is fairly easy to get along with and loved my co-workers!!! Downside is being around rubber smell caused headaches. Another downside is multiple duties spanning from two departments fell on one person (me) which caused stress. I overal learned how to multi-task in high stress, demanding environments.
Automotive Mechanic/Technician (Current Employee), Muscatine, IA – December 4, 2012
Pros: great people, great atmosphere
Cons: insurance benefits are pretty much non existant, no raises/ways of advancement
It is a job that I enjoy doing as I enjoy working on vehicles, however I feel that the compensation could be a lot better and there is no real job security and advancement/rewards aren't really thought much of. I would like to be able to advance in my workplace and be rewarded for acheiving goals/education/certificates/etc.
A Company that is declining or going the wrong way.
Engineer (Former Employee), Akron, OH – November 28, 2012
Pros: the people-your coworkers
Cons: the poor management personnel
The people who were your coworkers were very nice; but the management of this company is very aloof. This is a manufacturing company managed by accountants, who look for profits and stock value. The one positive thing is that they do make a good product. Compensation & benefits are good; but the culture is more of a production than an actuality. Once – more... you have served your purpose, you can be discarded without warning. I did enjoy my tenure at this company, but was not sad to end my employment there. I would recommend taking a very good hard look before deciding to work at Goodyear. Some years are good; but not all of them! – less
THE WORST EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Production Manager (Former Employee), New York – November 20, 2012
Cons: everything they do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
THE WORST COMPANY YOU COULD EVER WORK FOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If you read all the reviews, almost ALL are from FORMER employees. Why would you leave the best place ever? I know why. Terrible working conditions. (Unless you like working in a place that was built in the 1950's and stayed there.) Management style from the 1960's. PLUS, you get to work for – more... 10 plus hours for 8 hours pay. Oh and by the way we are going to need you to work on Saturday for free.................. – less
