you only got one break a 12 hour shift,enjoyed learning the computer system to make the rubber,management has the attitude that you are dirt,hardest part of the job was management,working with other employee's.
Overall its a fun environment but management creates a hostile work environment by not being trust worthy and create and enforce rules and make judgement as it suits the particular issue at hand. Instead of relying and utilizing the handbook.
Very exciting I would always learn something new from those in higher positions. It was a fun environment yet professional at all times, everyone was a team player majority of the time. It was a very well and organized company for customers and employees.
Yearly bonuses, and rewards of appriciation
little minor issues with very few in higher positions
I really like my boss TJ marhell! He takes his job very seriously! And the only thing I didn't like was the person they hired for shift lead, she was extremely rude and made people feel uncomfortable! That's the main reason I left
Overall great place to work and great co-workers. It was enjoyable to be around everyone. The job kept me busy and made the day go by fast. There was always things to do and new things to learn. Many of my co-workers have been with this company for fifteen plus years, that alone speaks for itself.
It had great shifts.
Didn't like when the holiday schedule changed short notice.

A typical day at work all depends on if the equipment was working properly. Nothing about the job was hard, if anything it was relatively easy, it just wasn't for me. I couldn't stand the long hours, it was just a repetitive job every day the same thing. My co-workers made the time pass a little quicker, I had two team leads who were both very nice. Hardest part of the job, just standing for twelve hours. All in all I liked what I did at my job, but not enough to stay.
A typical day at Continental Tires is very exciting and keep you on you toes kind of job. You will learn if you dont have the skills to maintain an postive and self motivated atmosphere in order to get your production quoter every day you work. The hardest part of my job is doing the set up job and still get my quoters. The set up is a job another person is suppose to do but if they are not available then i have to do it in order to get as close to my numbers as possible. The most enjoyable part of my job is getting the quoter and alll the parts being good. its also enjoyable when you are aknowlegde for going over and beyond.
the pay is good and the days off thru out the week
having to do someone else job in order to complete your job

The job is okay. The best part of the job is that there's much to learn. However, the cons largely outweigh the pros for me. Management isn't the greatest. They don't take the time to listen to the employees since they think their way is the best way; causing a rift between the office and floor workers. Certain areas do not have the appropriate tools for the jobs and the job training isn't structured well. It's never fun to get pulled away from your actual job to run a machine you either barely know much of or to get a quick (as in 5 minute) training rundown on how to run it. This place isn't big on safety either. The hours can be pretty rough which includes a 72 hour week..so prepare to feel like you live there.
Please note: this was about the Sumter, SC plant. I have been sent to the plant in Mt. Vernon, IL for training and everything's ran so much better. I hope someday Sumter can hit their level but at this rate...it's easy to feel pessimistic.
Lots to learn, great coworkers (on the floor)
12 hour shifts, management, training, unnecessarily lengthy hiring process, too focused on quantity and not quality

the job it self is alright its straight production but they are more worried about quanity than quality using bad parts and expired parts and bad compound to save money. everything was rushed even my training i feel that i did not have proper training on the equipment in which i operated i feel that i am always being thrown under the bus to be ran over and management needs to get more organized.
