Building Envelope National Technical Manager (Current Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – September 12, 2017
Firestone offers better than average pay, benefits, and plenty of opportunity for advancement. Firestone is also considerate about work-life balance and is always looking for ways to become a preferred employer.

Just like any other job,when working as a crew chief you have to deal with the problems of others. And also maintain a good working environment and a safe place to work, and maintain a good product as well.
Quality Safety Technician (Former Employee) – Tuscumbia, AL – August 27, 2017
This place offers competitive wages, bonuses, 401k and plenty of discounts. I wish i never left this place but i had to relocate. Management is ok, they give you free lunch and dinner often. If your willing and know how to communicate they will advance you to pretty much wherever they feel you would be a great fit.
The people are great to work with but, its hard work. The pay is pretty good and benefits are decent. Managment can be difficult to deal with.
Maintenance Technician (Current Employee) – Prescott, AR 71857 – August 4, 2017
Its a very demanding job. At times it can be really stressful and management can be very unstable and difficult to deal with. It is under going some changes right now. So that may gey better. The work is like I said very demanding. No two days are ever the same but, there are the repetitive calls. Everyone gets along for the most part.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Kingstree, SC – July 24, 2017
Firestone has been one of the best jobs I have ever had. The work environment was safe and the CEO cared about the people that worked their. They gave us bonus and other incentives while working their until it closed.
Shipping Supervisor (Current Employee) – Prescott, AR – June 29, 2017
I have been employed with Firestone Building Products for nearly 4 years. I enjoy my work, but at this point in my life, I would like to look for something different. We do a 12 hour work schedule with a rotating shift. I enjoy working in management and if I had to say what the hardest part of my job is, it would be working nights. I have learned SAP while at Firestone which I think will help me in future endeavors.
Customer Service Representative / Account Manager (Former Employee) – Indianapolis, IN – June 15, 2017
I have 0 negative things to say about Firestone Building Products. They are an amazing company who has amazing management. I just wish they were not moving to Nashville. I could have honestly retired from that place. My managers / supervisors were 5*. They were super understanding and would understand if family issues arise and you had to leave for the day. They would make sure that your accounts are covered and that your accounts are not left un-watched.
Relaxed company to work for however change is an issue
Building Systems Advisor (Current Employee) – Carmel, IN – April 25, 2017
The company is a division under Bridgestone Americas. Bridgestone is moving all headquarters to Nashville. Personal situation does not allow me to go with the company therefore I will be losing my job. So, while I am upset about this I do have faith I will find success in the future. However, I do like working for Firestone and wish they could have worked with me about working from home or in a satellite office. So, I am disappointed they are leaving I am happy for the experience I gained there.
Company tends to hire upper management positions outside of the office instead of promoting with in.
Roofing Rubber Inspector (Former Employee) – Prescott, AR – March 27, 2017
A typical day at work at Firestone was challenging. You had to work with a lot of different people and they're attitudes. That was the hardest part of the job. The most enjoyable part was working with people who really wanted to work.
