Warehouse Worker (Former Employee), Texarkana, ARDecember 10, 2014
The management was really good. Love my job there. I operated the forklift and worked day shift. Only problem i had with them is that i was sick one day and couldnt come in and I contacted them so they knew. I came back the next day and they told me to go home. They did this for about two weeks. When i went to talk to hr they told me that the supervisor had put me in as a no call no show. So with that I ended up loosing my job.

Forklift Driver (Current Employee), Tupelo, MSSeptember 3, 2014
Pros: breaks are on the clock
Cons: no benefits
Working for this company is physically and mentally demanding and time consuming when living over an hour away. I work 12 hour shifts driving the forklift and stacking tires. Every two weeks I change from day shift to night shift. The hardest part about this job is having to stay up during night shifts and getting my body used to sleeping through the day and being up all night. I think the most enjoyable part is knowing that I am able to provide for my family. While working for this company I learned how to adapt to different circumstances.

I have made a good living at Cooper.
VMI Trainer and operator (Current Employee), Tupelo, MSAugust 18, 2014
Pros: i make a good wage.
Cons: they took away the retirement.
Most days at Cooper are fine. We have bad material some days that makes it difficult to run the machine. I have learned a lot about machines and trouble shooting. Most of my co-workers are good friends including management. The swing shift we work is the hardest part of the job.The most enjoyable thing about the job is pride in building a good tire with great people and the pay is good too.

Shift Supervisor (Former Employee), Findlay, OHAugust 1, 2014
I learned skills in management. I was responsible for assigning the shift members to their dock doors, and work type. Whether it was a load or an unload. After they had completed that specific door i would assign another door, and i would bill the truck so that it was able to leave the shipping yard.

Loader/Unloader (Former Employee), Texarkana, ARJuly 27, 2014
Pros: good sleep
Cons: hard work, long hours
A typical day at this job consisted of loading tires. At this job I learned how they load tires into semi trailers. The management was pretty laid back. I really didnt have much time to talk with my co-workers because we never ran out of tires to load. The hardest part of the job was when you had to load a truck full of the smaller tires, because it was harder to get the trailer to the right wieght. The most enjoyable part of this job was when my 12 hours was over and it was time to go home.

Worked through a temp service. Management was easy to get along with but very inconsistent. Got paid half of what was normally paid by Cooper Tire. No benefits.
