Operations Engineering Manager (Former Employee), Gadsden, ALMay 14, 2014
Pros: learn all about tires and why you don't want goodyear
Cons: it was a disaster
This is a people killer. Walked 16 miles a day after my maintenance leads were all taken for "special" jobs leaving the front line work to inexperienced others.

7 days a week. 12 hours a day. Work all you want for 40 hours pay.
Don't believe that things have changed either. THEY LIE on a routine basis.

Human Resources (Current Employee), Akron, OHMay 11, 2014
Pros: there are opportunities to advance for top performers.
Cons: culture
Their processes are outdated and not standardized. Each group operates in it's own silo and politics make the culture challenging. They pay well but the work/life balance is determinant on the department you work in. The company lacks diversity and does not value inclusivity. Great resume builder but not a long term career for most.

Goodyear service technician (Former Employee), Allen, TxMay 8, 2014
A typical day at work was 7am to 4pm working on cars for customers. I learned how to work on my own car and how to talk to a customer. The co-workers were great and we all worked together to get the job done. There wasn't a hard part of the job and going to work everyday was enjoyable.

Goodyear has been in my heart and soul since I was a child
Contract Administrator (Former Employee), Akron, OHApril 28, 2014
Pros: my interaction with fellow associates was truly gratifying
Cons: meetings
As a contract administrator a typical day at work was attention to detail, accomplishing to do's and prepare accordingly for the next day of work.

I learned that playing the game is part of being involved in an ongoing process that requires people listening more than talking.

Quality management is recognized and vital to a company's growth; however, – more... managers in some cases will create gridlock.

NOTHING

My co-workers mean a great deal to me. – less

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

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.
