Low pay, slow moving
sales/marketing manager (Current Employee) –  south carolinaMay 5, 2012
Compensation is low: expect your salary to be 25% lower than industry average for comparable role. Job security is good, but advancement is done on a political level. Influx of people from outside the company have filled higher level roles, even though there were more than qualified individuals already in the company. Use a forced ranking system to grade employees; hence, you will be reviewed by a team that may not even know who you are. Encourages "sucking up" to those on that team in order to get a raise.
Pros
intelligent people.
Cons

I do not have anything bad to say about this company. I don't have anything to say about this company. I think this survey is very pushy and offensive.

Place you make tires
Business Unit Leader (Current Employee) –  Lexington, SCMarch 19, 2013
Michelin is a great place to work if you are looking for job security. They have great values and they are very secure in who they are. The negatives are that salary employees are expected to work at last 50 hours a week and the pay is average at best. The advancement path is also slow as they don't start looking to move you until you have been on the job for three years regardless of how well your yearly reviews go.

2nd Inspector and Quality Spoke (Current Employee) –  Norwood, NCFebruary 4, 2014
I very much enjoy the job that I do, and the people that I get to work with on a daily basis, but I do not like the schedule. 8 hour rotating weekly shifts leave a lot to be desired when it comes to home life.
Pros
good pay and benefits. other employees and management are very easy to get along with.
Cons
swing shift, so very little time with the family

Secure but frustrating
Inventory Flow Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Tuscaloosa, AlabamaApril 14, 2013
Excellent company with great benefits and security. BUT, woefully incompetent management who are in a constant state of crisis. Company has numerous training programs for management but it seems to do no good. There is no focus and solution on problems, just more crisis management which is an excellent example of the Peter Principle.
Pros
security
Cons
never any strategic planning

Productive, Swing shift is no fun, you have no family time, pay is good.
Machine Assistant (Current Employee) –  Lexington, SCSeptember 3, 2014
You come in to work, start your day on machine, work till your break, then work till your next break, lunch etc then time to go home. For the most part the co workers are great except a few jerks as well as the same for management. The hardest part of the job is the swing shift hours and the most enjoyable part of the job is when you go home.
Pros
payed breaks and lunch breaks, 4 weeks vacation day you start.
Cons
swing shift very hard (no family time), you hear the company cares about you but they dont, i dont eat sleep and drink the company like the upper most do, i have a family and a life.

Management is a joke
Extruder Lead, Press Operator (Former Employee) –  Covington, GAMay 22, 2012
VERY PHYSICALLY DEMANDING. Rotating 12 hr. shifts. Work 4 days one week, then 3 days then next week then rotate to nights. Doesn't matter if your sick on your deathbed, they still expect you to be there and even if your have a doctor's note, your absence will still be counted against you. There is sooo much favortism that it is UNREAL.They will be 4 different bosses telling you to do something totally opposite and you will get in trouble no matter who you listen to.You have to account for every second of your 12 hr shift, and there is a timed guideline for everything you do.The pay is excellent, the benefits are even better, and if the above doesn't bother you then its an ok place to work.
Pros
benefits, free tires, discount tires
Cons

Great Company & Product, Excellent Training Program
Account Representative II (Former Employee) –  Greenville, SCApril 2, 2014
A typical day at Michelin was a very busy and productive one.
I learned about tires and the manufacturing and retread process and the replacement market. In addition to learning about Michelin's products I learned a lot about the competition and their products.
I gained a wealth of knowledge while employed at Michelin and I had many opportunities.
Michelin offers extensive training to their employees. They are a very diverse company which opens up a lot of opportunity for their employees. I had exposure to all parts of the world & the products we sold & manufactured. Michelin invested a lot of time & money in my training which contributed to my growth & development in the tire industry. I went to work, got paid, and learned all at the same time.
What more can a person ask for?
Pros
knowledge, expertise & training
Cons
inconsistent salary increases, did not reflect the changes in the cost of living
