Goodyear /// work with rubber, made Hoses and belts
Laborer (Former Employee), Lincoln, NEApril 27, 2014
Pros: 1 st. shift day hours
Cons: 3rd shift overnights
went to work, did my job, we work on a rate ( so many # per day)
enjoy working with my co-works... like my 7am-3pm hours
didn't care for the 11pm-to 7am hours..most enjoyable part of my jobs was the good feeling you had at the end of the day knowing your work was done in full.

Industrial Maintenance (Current Employee), Fayetteville, NCApril 25, 2014
A typical day at work is when all the machines are running good and there is hardly any clean up needed. I've learned a lot working at Goodyear. Patience and total production maintenance. Management is very easy going as long as your job is complete and well managed. The hardest part of my job is the over load. Thats when the machine start putting out – more... more oil and carbon then usual. The most enjoyable part of my job is when everybody come together as a team and help each other out during a hectic situation. – less

I worked all the hours I wanted to & the pay was great.
Tire Builder (Former Employee), Union City, TNApril 21, 2014
Pros: the great pay, benefits, and the people
Cons: physically demanding & the shut down
The management was poor. I worked 60-80 hours a week. I was paid well. I had excellent benefits. The work was physically demanding and dangerous. The employees there worked with an amazing team effort and everyone was helpful to each other. The company was shut down in July 2011.

Sales Manager (Former Employee), West Mifflin, PAApril 7, 2014
I enjoyed my time at Goodyear, I was able to continue developing my selling skills and sell product with ease. I was also able to coordinate each promotional event and set up numerous displays, flyers, etc., to help drive business using every medium available. I was able to learn all aspects of the particular business from selling, managing, training, – more... to even working on vehicles. – less

Management is a JOKE!
Mechanic (Former Employee), Richmond, VAMarch 31, 2014
Pros: working on cars.
Cons: manangement creates a depressed culture. work/life balance on weekends.
This is a dead end job for a technician. You will never get over 30 hours! Management sits in the office all day and does nothing but collect a pay check. Morale in the shop is bad. Work/life balance is a joke! You will work every weekend. They will not send you to training schools to keep your skills fresh on the new technology. Their idea of training – more... is trial and error or send it to the dealer! A typical day was working on some vehicles and listening to the Manager complain about business after sitting in his office for the whole day! Word to the wise. Get all of your promises in WRITING! – less

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
