rewarding team environment with a good work to life balance
Line Supervisor & Certified Operator (Former Employee) – Albany, GA – October 16, 2018
Task were defined and obtainable and employees were rewarded with incentives to exceed production requirements Active role in six sigma process systems allowed one to see real time results towards meeting production requirements while maintaining a high quality level Management provided clear communications for job tasks, production requirements, and quality expectations all while maintaining a safe work environment Competitive but fair work environment The hardest part was rotating days to nights every two weeks We met and exceeded many challenges introduced by corporate and we were compensated for our efforts

I was able to experience a new workplace while at Cooper Tires. I was grateful for the opportunity to be able to provide for my family. It was hard work and challenging, but I adapted well to what was asked of me.

I would not recommend Cooper Tire to anyone because you work 12 hour swing shift one week you work 48 hours the next week you work 36 they have mandatory overtime but will have shutdown days at the same time you have to use your vacation days if you want to get paid because they had some shutdown days

Job Work/Life Balance
First Stage Tire Builder (Former Employee) – Findlay, OH – September 18, 2018
The job was good until sales slowed. We were then being laid off and made less money when we did get to work. Those with more than 3 years of service received comp pay. Those with more than 10 years of service were paid more money for the same jobs.

Operator Finisher (Former Employee) – Albany, GA – August 23, 2018
A typical day would be getting to work at whatever time i"m scheduled to come in, jump o my production line and start sorting tires, labeling, checking for mistakes as I go along lunch time is granted then back to the line until is the end of the 12 hour shift
Tire Sorter (Former Employee) – Tupelo, MS – August 23, 2018
Never be tire sorter. Worst job to have. It's stressful they talk to you any kind of way. I feel like you should get more pay for the work because sometimes you triple working yourself because of others.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Findlay, OH – August 15, 2018
Direct management was inept, poorly trained, and unresponsive with no idea of how to improve. Upper management is only focused on the bottom line, and fail to understand the workers are their number one asset.
