Very good working conditions
Tractor Trailer Driver (Former Employee), Westminster, MDMarch 25, 2014
Pros: no presure if you did your job right, nice christmas parties, employee appreciation.
Cons: lower amount of pay in comparison to other companys
Good co. to work for, co-workers were very good, very good ins. plans, worked well with management, good atmosphere.
The hardest part of my job was the unloading and reloading of the tractor trailer by myself, which I viewed as a great work-out, and didn't mind it at all.
Dealing with the customers on my routes was the most enjoyable times of my day.

R-1 Tire Builder (Former Employee), Union City, TNMarch 18, 2014
Pros: great benefits and money
Cons: no family time
Goodyear was a great place to work. Money was great and gave you opportunity to work all the overtime I wanted. Union job was great cause they always had my back. Hours were not all that great due to having to work 6 days a week and limited family time, but the money was great!

Maintenance Shift Supervisor (Former Employee), Gadsden, ALMarch 13, 2014
Pros: great coworkers, decent pay and benefits
Cons: overbearing managment, no room for advancment
A typical day at work was 12 hours of making what you had on hand worked towards the best achieveable goal for that shift. Main thing I learned was how to improve my people skills, stay controlled, and job plan from hour to hour and day to to day. Management was decent up until a plant manager change in 2013, which is eventually while I left this postion. – more... The co-workers were easily the best part of this job, even though they were union if everyone shared a mutual respect it felt almost like a family from day to day. – less

Learning new skills , and working with heavy machinery.
Gantry Technician (Former Employee), Topeka, KSMarch 8, 2014
Pros: weekly pay check / overtime was always available, and breaks were just.
Cons: time away from home / steel-toed boots, and i was allergic to some of the rubber compounds.
2nd shift employee in climate controlled facility. I was in charge of million Dollar machinery and was a responsibility I took very seriously. My co-workers were always willing to lend a helping hand when needed. Management never hawked over ones shoulder. Your job was always trusted to your commom sense and skill set. The thing that I most enjoyed – more... was the family picnic atmosphere. – less

Our work group was team oriented and long term.
Maintenance Mechanic/Millwright (Former Employee), Union City, TNMarch 4, 2014
Pros: excelent benefits.
Cons: hazardous work environment.
Our jobs positions were bid on to acquire by ranking of seniority. We were "Gang" maintenance which was a group of 8 technicians. We enjoyed working with one another that we remained in this group with essentially the same personnel for many years. The gang were assigned the large technical jobs of major machine repair, removal, and instillation. Management – more... were not technically trained and gave general instructions. We had to make the best decisions we could with those instructions. Hardest part of job... Proper equipment to complete the jobs. Example: large enough fork truck to lift load safely. I learned to depend on my co-workers for their incite as to how to complete the job efficiently and safely – less

Good team to work with. Great career.
Store Manager (Current Employee), Langley Park, MDFebruary 28, 2014
Pros: great team to work with and great benefits.
Cons: 6 day work week.
Enjoyed many years with Goodyear. Worked at multiple locations and held a number of different positions that gave me a wide range of experience. Worked with a great team that worked well together. Was able to locate, hire, mentor, teach, develop, and promote a great number of people that are still doing well in the Company. Was able to watch my recruits – more... grow in strength and position. I was in a position to create and establish policies and procedures that are still used today, some though out the Company, but mostly in the District. Although there were no really hard parts to the job, the most challenging was keeping my teams motivated to produce the expected AOP. Management was very supportive and gave me many opportunities to learn and advance in my expertise. I very much enjoyed working with my team and with our customers on a daily basis. Every day was new and brought new challenges with it. – less

used to be a fun place to work
Store Manager (Current Employee), Los AngelesFebruary 27, 2014
Cons: everything
I've been with Goodyear for over 18 years. Used to be fun and nice place to work, but for the past 5-6 years after a new management the company went down on everything. The company creates a hustle environment, all tbe stores are running short stuffed working long hours and the corporate keeps on demending more out of you. No matter how much you do – more... its never enough. Management needs to get they're act together if they want to keep good people working for them. – less

Hard work but great pay and benefits
Tire Builder (Former Employee), Union City, TNFebruary 14, 2014
Pros: pay, benefits.
Cons: hard work, lack of respect from management, co-workers are difficult to work with.
A moderate amount of hostility between the hourly workers and the management. Mainly because the location where I worked was unionized.

Co-workers were good people but lacked basic communication skills and did not have an attitude of cooperation. Teamwork was rare.

The company stressed safety and quality work, but the management focused more on production – more... above all else. – less
