Loader/Unloader (Former Employee) –  Findlay, OHJuly 12, 2018
They pay you by weight so if you a lazy person ypu aint making nothin. Must be in physical shape and strong willed im not even joking. You load a 52´ foot trailers by hand and some of those tires are at least 50+lbs. Reaching up to a80lbs some are like 5lbs. End of the night depending on you you can throw 120,000 lbs+ makeing $200+ a day. Must be able to thow 75,000 a day or you will get the boot

working together and talking, laughing about the old times
tire builder , mill man , tractor driver , (Former Employee) –  Findlay, OHJuly 12, 2018
enjoyed working with a lot of hard working guys. had a lot of laughs just trying to get through the day. we had a lot of pride in our craftsmanship building tires, the same tires our families used on their cars and trucks. old school management understood the hard work and the sweat , blood of the hard workers , and had some empathy for them. younger management doesn't understand that and only think about production , bonuses. hardest part of piece rate was to produce a lot of parts and still keep quality in them.
Pros
alot of good people to work with
Cons
automation slowly taking jobs away and losing hands on quality

Automotive Technician (Former Employee) –  Muncie, INJune 4, 2018
Business is often slow which leads to the reduction of hours. Typical workday consisted of various vehicle maintenance issues including oil changes, tires, fuel pumps, power steering pumps, etc. Very honest owner when it comes to dealing with customers.
