General Service Technician (Former Employee) – Gainesville, VA – April 4, 2013
Goodyear was a very hard working business every day brought new challenges to the table. I learned how to properly perform oil changes,tire repairs and I received my General Service certification also. The management was unfair and disrespectful to the employees throughout the day. The hardest part of the job was upselling products to customers who weren't satisfied with what was found wrong with their vehicle inpection. The most enjoyable part of the job for me was the moment I started the day. I have a passion for cars so my job was always a perfect environment for me.

Goodyear has changed a lot in the last few years and the change is visible in culture and leadership. The business results and stock prices over the last 3 years are a testament to a good strategy and its execution by some of the most competent people in the industry.
Proud to have been part of the change and turnaround story.

A typical day at work is knowing you have a job to go to. What you learned how to improve productivity and quality. Work hard and be competitive.Management good and knowledgeable to work with.Co-workers easily to get along with. We help each other. The hardest part of the job is the heat that comes off the molds. The most enjoyable part is be able to take part in activities.

A typical day at Goodyear is pretty easy, but it can be a little challenge from day to day... My current co-workers are a major help with my learning as I continue to learn and grow knowledge about automotive. In the past year I have learned do do more than just a basic alignment. I can now do caster and camber adjustments when not equipped from factory. I enjoy everyday at Goodyear I really enjoy working there I would just like to receive more money for the things I do there.
Production Specialist Senior (Current Employee) – Gadsden, AL – January 14, 2016
Very long hours and somewhat unattainable expectations. Culture is punitive with no positive re-enforcement. Silo mentality with departments pitted against each other. Good compensation is the only saving grace. HUGE disconnect with what Akron (global headquarters) preaches and how the plant treats you.
Service Manager (Former Employee) – Centennial, CO – January 6, 2016
I truly enjoyed Deckard Tire Company, because I had the opportunity to really dig in and become a part of something, A small, mom-and-pop shop, we all worked hard, and at the end of the day we felt like we had accomplished something. Our customers were our friends, not just targets we were shooting at, and our goal was always to provide a valuable service and make them happy, not just separate them from their money.
Area Manager (Former Employee) – Topeka, KS – December 24, 2015
Even though the pay was great the money wasn't worth working there. 12 hour work shifts ended being 14 plus with no compensation for working over your 12 hours. . No coverage for vacation so you could work 14 hour days for ever. No life work balance and my manager didn't care.
Store Manager (Former Employee) – Pharr, TX – December 14, 2015
Great team effort in all aspects of the day to day from initial ticket write up to the time the customer leaves. nothing difficult here, just keep up with your P&L statements,account payables and receivables.
good inventory selection
regional manager at the time was a thief and very selfish

Service Department Manager (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – November 14, 2015
A typical day at work in a retail location for Goodyear Tire is exhausting. What could be classified as fun and innovative instead becomes mired down with micromanagement and broken promises. If you have a family, don't even think about working here. The job/life balance is severely off of where it needs to be. Stores, and yes I mean all of them are extremely streamlined and understaffed. The hourly rate for doing the job is actually pretty high in my opinion, but bonus/spiff programs are lacking. Essentially, it's a tire store and the one thing that is compensated the least is selling the tires.
