Not family oriented
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Morrison, TNDecember 7, 2018
Bridgestone is not family oriented like they say, they push production then at the last moment scrap the tires you work so hard to make, their quota. Then take your bonus. They dont take the time to find out why or if you miss days (sick or children sick). They take your points without reviewing why and dont give you a chance. You stand all night and miss out alot on family. They dont put the money into nice workable stools or heat at your machine. All they care about is making money for their own pockets. They dont put much into their employees. I will NOT recommend this place for a single parent or someone who cant stand on their hard floors
Pros
The money is good
Cons
Non family oriented, they dont take care of their employees or their health

waste of time
never got that far (Former Employee) –  never got that farDecember 6, 2018
The made me drive over 80 miles to interview for a job 10 miles away. Offered me a job and had me go check out their facility, only to not call me back and lie to me on the phone when I did get a hold of them again. Very unorganized, and disrespectful people!

A Slow Decline
Machine Technician (Former Employee) –  Aiken, SCNovember 19, 2018
Bridgestone in Aiken, SC used to be an amazing place to work, but has been on a slow decline since the new plant manager has taken his role. Management is poor, benefits are declining every year, bonuses have changed for the worse, sick time has been taken away, and you fear for your job everyday.
Pros
The money is great
Cons
Management, the company as a whole, benefits, work/life balance.

Be prepared for incompetence on a daily basis but a good area manager can help a lot and provide the empowerment to do what you feel needs to be done.
Pros
Pay, career advancement, aggressive/competitive benefits

Micro managed with every report/a lot of negativity and finger pointing.

A lot of lies

Managers are trained to lie to their employees. Area manager doesn't communication very well and changes things for each store how he feels fit. Meetings are usually pointless.
Pros
Good deals, benifits
Cons
Communication, work/life balance, sometimes no breaks

Hard Work for Good pay
Team Member (Former Employee) –  Clarksville, TNOctober 24, 2018
Bridgestone is a nice place to work but the swing shift is not something I could not get use to. The atmosphere is tough because it takes a lot to be efficiently trained.

Cool place
Order Filler (Former Employee) –  Fogelsville, PAOctober 18, 2018
Very nice warehouse to work at. The management seems to know what they were talking about when helping you since they were once an order filler. Everyone was competitive which made the place more fun to work at.

Focused on the yearly results.
Director (Current Employee) –  Nashville, TNOctober 16, 2018
Bridgestone seems to be thriving on the legacy that leadership a decade ago left. The investments needed to grow in the future are nonexistent and the focus to cut costs today seems greater than making the proper bets for tomorrow. Over 90% of the new executives are hired from the outside - which is a clear wake up call for the employees that have worked here for the last several years.
Pros
Shiny new office
Cons

Operations Manager (Former Employee) –  Merritt Island, FLOctober 10, 2018

Long hours little pay
Automotive Technician (Former Employee) –  North Myrtle BeachOctober 8, 2018
Only would recommend working here if your an hourly employee. Since if your a flat rate technician you will be working 9, 10, and sometimes 11 hours a days and only be able to log about 5 to 7 hours as will be sharing lifts 5 or 6 other techs and the labor pay rate per job are very low (front brakes pays less than hour) and most jobs that come in are oil changes and tire changes/repairs. Benefits are good and relatively cheap.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Long work days; very low labor times

Company does not promote technical people except from one location.
Technical Service Manager (Current Employee) –  Aiken, SCOctober 2, 2018
Good job security but poor advancement. Manufacturing director only promotes from the plant he used to work at. Poor training for technical people. Mainly focus on those that have been in production.
