challenging workplace, tested my and my co-workers abilities to perform together
Auto Technician (Former Employee), Norridge, ILMarch 19, 2015
Pros: training, tools, clean working conditions.
Goodyear invested in me as I was a young adult, and they sent me to training to different locations, and once I graduated, I performed very well in the field. I began to teach other co-workers, at my workplace, and out performed them. I did finally manage a store with 5 technicians, and to begin with, it was difficult, but it all paid off... determination, drive to succeed.

Pros: picnics
Start by checking machine to make sure it was in spec. You could go to management with your problems. The people where great. The hardest part of the job was when you had to choose different jobs. I loved working there because everyone was family.

Great place to work
Specialist (Current Employee), Akron, OHMarch 2, 2015
Pros: ability to set your own path.
Cons: the "us" and "them" cultural divide with the union.
Honestly a great place to work. Many jobs available in a variety of different career paths. There are always positions opening and the company is willing to explore new managerial directions as they grow.

Opportunity Comes with a Cost
Development Engineer (Current Employee), Akron, OHMarch 2, 2015
Pros: clear expectations, decent people
Cons: travel/relocation, cost cutting culture, not employee focused
Company is beginning to be more stable financially, but cost cutting is still a large part of the corporate strategy.
Opportunity for advancement is there, with transfers and movement regular, but some groups/departments still have managers with stalled careers. You must be flexible to the companies needs, and they will most likely not be flexible to yours. Relocations/Distant work assignments are never as temporary as they present, and are expected for advancement.
People are competitive, but still provides a family feel. A lot of pride among employees.

Tire Assembler (Former Employee), Lawton, OKFebruary 22, 2015
Pros: decent wages
Cons: unsafe working conditions. poor training program.
The work was labor intense and hazardous. A typical day at work involved something breaking down on a machine. I learned that having a job that you enjoy is extremely important. My co-workers seemed unhappy and complained a lot. The hardest part of the job was making the required quota of tires. The most enjoyable part of the job was working in the tire hold area.

Service Manger (Former Employee), Washington, DCFebruary 17, 2015
Pros: good team members
Cons: long hours
Good place to work, not much time for family or personal things. Team members are great but it is very difficult to take care of anything other than goodyear's business. Mandatory 6-day work weeks make it difficult to have a life or tend to the needs of children. Holidays are mandatory and weekends are mandatory, unless leave is scheduled.

Good pay and benifits
Blow-out inspector/trainer/team lead of department (Current Employee), WisconsinFebruary 16, 2015
Pros: benifits
Working with this company for 20 + years, I have had opportunities that have allowed me to learn and have hands on working situations in safety, 5-S, 6-S, Lean Manufacturing, Training. I most enjoyed being hands on in improving the working conditions for all employees. As for management, they do the best they can working in a union environment, according to procedures and policies. I feel my co-workers are the experts that are doing the jobs with the supervision of management and as a team produce a positive product. The hardest part of my job would have to disqualifying a training employee that can not understand the process.

Service Technician (Former Employee), Duluth, GAFebruary 6, 2015
Pros: great place to work
This is a great place to work. The management and owners are great people. My co-workers are great to work with. While there, my automotive skills were honed as I learned quite a bit. I had an opportunity to interact with customers. Once a month we would have a BBQ. In slow times we always found ways to keep our selves busy but training or keeping the shop clean.

Global IT Security Intern (Current Employee), Akron, OHFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: free food throughout offices, asian food wednesdays
Cons: frequently changing management due to retirement or promotion
Working in the IT department at Goodyear I had the pleasure of meeting and working with some of the friendliest and most knowledgeable people I have ever known. Every manager I worked under was a kind effective leader who encouraged and supported the team, driving us toward success in each project. By far the best place I've ever worked.

A great place to work
Region Operations Coordinator (Former Employee), Essington, PAFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: salary, benefits, sponsored events
Cons: hours
Goodyear Tire is a great place to work with hard working, dedicated associates. A typical day was supporting the General Manager and his sales team that are responsible for 3,000+ Tire Dealers/customers, working on reports, helping the team with training on systems and processes and customer service to the sales force or customer. A capricious atmosphere that was never dull or boring. Management is focused on their customers and reaching objectives and goals. Co workers are a hard working, dedicated, fun bunch of people and everyone worked well together as a team. The hardest part of the job - working after hours and weekends to keep up with the work. The most enjoyable part are the people and satisfaction that my support was value added.
