Sales Analyst (Former Employee) – Springfield, VA – October 20, 2014
A lot more of a technical job that was a lot of sales to personnel in regards to their vehicles that was brought in. The company harps on upselling other services that were not needed at the time which made it a place I wasn't to keen on. Nice co-workers, but didn't pay their mechanics a lot which I didn't agree with.
Lead Production Planner and Logistician (Former Employee) – Clarksville, TN – January 9, 2019
Great culture, leadership, and people. Leaders listen and seek advice and recommendations on prices improvement ideas. Benefits are very competitive and a great place for those transitioning out of the military.

GENERAL SERVICE TECHNICIAN (Former Employee) – Yucaipa, CA – January 1, 2019
BSRO owns many stores such as Wheel Works and Firestone. I worked at Wheels Works in San Jose for three years. The managers were great people who cared about their employees. The culture is like any other technician culture. BSRO has a method to do inspections and oil changes. They sent new hires to a one-week paid training. They also pay for food.
Firestone was no different although, I prefer the people at Wheel Works. I did oil changes and tires. Occasionally I did brakes. They paid me $12.50/hr but I never got a raise. The pay is not good but decent.
A good place to start but not a good place to have a career.
Lead Mechanic (Former Employee) – Pinole, CA – November 7, 2018
most employees were in and out within a year or 2. Lots of young guys trying to get into the automotive industry. All the work that comes in seems like it was supposed to be done yesterday. advisers will bring in more work than what the staff can handle because management always had to hit their numbers.
I worked here as a contractor thru my employer, Fujitsu America Inc as Project Delivery Manager. Client also had their own highly skilled IT team members and we worked in harmony. I was provided with their standards and had freedom to suggest / recommend better options. I was respected appropriately and heard most often. Good place to work.
Interesting manufacturing processes, very connected to the community and helping the enviroment.
Maintenance Supervisor (Former Employee) – Tennessee – September 20, 2018
An interesting company to work for, very connected to the community and the enviroment. Huge corporate sponsor to all sports. Complicated assembly process that is very dirty in some areas. Company provides showers for employees.
I was not an actual employee of Bridgestone although I worked there for many years, it was always as a contracting company employee. The culture was good, Warren plant was an excellent place to be employed by. Management was good.
