Goodyear, has some structural problems, starting from the top down. Many of the senior managers are only in positions that were given by the good ole boy system. Which is fine if the person put in charge is capable. Third shift Area Managers are pretty much punching bags coming from all business centers. For example; it doesn't matter how hard a 3rd shift manager works to try to correct the mistakes from the prior day, they are still held accountable for everyone else's mistake, often time being berated screamed at yelled at and threatened to be fired or wrote up.
The Union.. The union wouldn't be as detrimental to the success of the company if they would police their own people. I understand people have situations in their life that require time away from work, however don't fight for guys to keep their jobs if they aren't doing what they need to do to keep it in the first place.
I personally fired a guy 3 times in one month and every single time the union and company reinstated said employee and paid him for time lost. Meanwhile, the Area Manager is getting screamed at for not holding these people accountable.
Good pay great benefits
Complete disregard for quality of life.
