Great People, slow culture
Consumer Research Specialist (Former Employee) –  Akron, OHJuly 6, 2016
Goodyear's main issue is the pace in which its culture operates. Unfortunately, Goodyear's legally conservative culture doesn't allow it to do anything creative. Additionally, this legally conservative culture slows down business to a grinding halt. It took 4 months to get the Goodyear legal department to approve a simple license order for a $25k MR project. Not only did it not meet the business' needs in time, but it soured a relationship with a great supplier.

The people at Goodyear are great. Bar none -- the best in the world. Goodyear will never be top dog until it learns to take risks. Unfortunately, I don't see that happening.
Pros
workplace amenities, benefits, people, PTO/vacation
Cons
slow culture, Getting alignment on every single decision

Zero work life balance
Manager (Current Employee) –  Fayetteville, NCJune 30, 2016
Good pay, great people at lower levels and in the plant, Management demands require zero work life balance and you are looked down upon for even wanting the weekend off. do not recommend for anyone wanting a life, but if you want good money, chance for advancement and global opportunities, go for it. Just expect no life going forward....
Pros
good pay and benefits in todays environment
Cons
zero worklife balance

Alignment Technician (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLJune 27, 2016
A typical day at work was spent under the hood of a car. From Oil changes to Alignments. I earned how to install suspension on vehicles. The management was always fair with days off and paid vacations. My coWorkers always helped out if I had any questions. The hardest part of my job was getting the grease out from under my nails. The most enjoyable part of the job was figuring out what was wrong with a vehicle and repairing it successfully.
Pros
Pay
Cons
Hot in the shop

Service Technician (Former Employee) –  Hartford, CTJune 26, 2016
I work at goodyear for a couple of months and the manager I had complain about the same time over an over, when they have stuff that didn't go and the work sheets they will expect employee to write them down, even if you write it down they said there's no need for it, so wich one its going to be, then if u said that something break is ither the employee foult , so the owner is going to agree with the manager , but if u said that the parts needs changing cuz it can be time, well no he will make it the employee foult , so when u have a manager that sucks it will never change? It goes down hill from there on? To said more this is the (Hartford. Ct) if u here and come here take ur car there anything u can said they broke they will fix . Cuz is the manager employee problem , not the manegment.or the chain.
Pros
they company is good but the manager sucks
Cons
u can said it broke there an they fix it

Inventory Manager/Overseer (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLJune 24, 2016
All I have to say store 110 Miami location they are all liars if you follow policy do no work for them you would get fired they do not care about safety for the co-workers even customer as long as they make their money you can die for all they care and if you don't believe me just give it a try when hired they would put you to work like a dog and if you call main office to talk about the company your just calling to get yourself fired so don't even try so wish you all the best of luck and work for Goodyear store 110 at your own risk

Goodyear pays their employees every week
General Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  Colorado Springs, COJune 7, 2016
Goodyear pays their employees every week and gives them 40 hours.Management is trying to put this Plant under their doing a good job. Favoritism is a high problem here. Everyday you can see certain people slacking off and its always the same ones which also just happen to be the ones that always get away with it. Its the hard workers that feel the brunt of any problems. For caring your most likely to be degraded and insulted and that's not just by your coworkers but some of management as well. Allot of the workers there would sooner stab you in the back and tell a supervisor what your doing wrong then do their job and do it correctly. transfer to another state.

Customer Service Associate (CSA) (Former Employee) –  Claymont, DEJune 5, 2016
Love working for the company, and with my fellow team members. The hours of operation can be a bit challenging if you have a family and need to have a set schedule. it can get hectic but overall a wonderful company to work for, if your availability allow you to work 10-12 hour shifts, and possibly 7 days a week when needed.
Pros
great team work.
Cons
long shifts, short breaks, sometimes no days off

Poor Managment ,back breaking work and a dead end job!!
Driver/Laborer (Former Employee) –  Orlando, FLMay 21, 2016
I worked there for over 2 years they monitor every aspect of your driving by gps tracking even how hard you make a turn but that's not the bad part the warehouse manger won't stand up for himself and diffently not drivers from fear of losing his job so at the end drivers are abused that's why people quit the only people that stay are the ones that feel they can't do better which is sad!! You will unload trucks everyday by hand 1200 tires ranging from 25-200lbs while other driver watch and try to leave asap on there route and not at a normal rate they have 2 labor ready guys throwing tires at you as fast as they can so they can go home and you have to catch them coming at you at 30 mph and stack them by code it's almost impossible to do when's it's 2 against one and if there's 2 of you most likely your intercepting them from going everywhere and re-throwing them to the other end of the warehouse it's ridiculous and the fun part is good year does not have any type or Claps on the forklift to move the mass number of tires (truck tires included) which means you will be counting them and writing everything down by hand and you'll be moving the tires off the truck stacking them by numerical order then moving them again to the isle they're supposed to go to then when you have a chance put them all up in the rack all by hand, it's backbreaking work and you won't be able to move in the warehouse because they will be tires literally everywhere thousands as far as you can see which all have to go up in the racks. You being new will be worked as a slave and the whole sale manger  more... tony that runs the place will lie to you to keep you around Instead of just being honest. Run from this job as fast as you can unless you want back problems for life or you like working like a slave with no chance of moving up. This place is a joke and needs to be shut down and go back to just sending tires from good year directly like they used to.  less
Pros
You can say you work for Goodyear
Cons
Back breaking work and dead end job!!

Physically and Mentally Fun
Production Line Lead (Former Employee) –  Fayetteville, NCMay 7, 2016
A typical day at work consisted of completing production orders in a timely manner. My experiences at American Phoenix Inc. was challenging. I quickly learned how to operate, troubleshoot and maintain a production line with minimum guidance. My coworkers were very helpful and supportive. The hardest part of the job was ensuring the full completion of all production orders. The most enjoyable part of the job was the team effort in completing the orders. Knowing that everyone is supportive and working as a team makes the work day more enjoyable.
