Good experience

Indeed Featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
A good firm to start your career from. Job security is good. Payscale is not very good for trainees and there is no particular system to make the trainees permanent on the job.

It’s much like a prison

There are only managers out there, no leaders. They will contradict themselves on polices. Quantity is over everything even quality. Get numbers no matter what. Also they have become so top heavy with clueless managers and corporate workers that the builders and workers are under constant fire. It’s a miserable place.

Pros

Money is all

Cons

Everything but money

work schedule is rough, poor management

seniority based plant ; so if your low man on the totem pole, your last in every category, as far as shift preference, department, etc. There is always conflict between the company and the union. Great benefits!

Pros

benefits, union protection

Cons

company will replace you without hesitation

Good hours, could pay more

Sundays off, franchise location, so no corporate changing rules every year. Pretty much comparable to other jobs in the automotive industry. Co-workers can make or break the location.

I worked in Fayetteville's Plant.

The money and the benefits are great. This is the only plant job that pays you very well in this area. However, the management will lie on you and ruin you as a worker. This company will write you up to the point were you will evidentially end up fired. I liked the fact that you got three breaks a night, but I did not like being yelled at for the machine going down. The hardiest part of this job is operating a broken machine. Then you have to get numbers and you dont have equipment. The service trucks and machines need to be badly repaired. This is not a job for the long haul.

Pros

Great Benefits, school, and great money!

Cons

poor management, bad equipment and liars.

Not Worth It

During your “training phase” the work seems manageable. You will be set up with a few people which will give the illusion that the work load is easy to manage. Once you are “certified” you will begin to notice that some people you will work with only look out for themselves. Management is very strict with being on time that even being a few minutes late will get you in trouble. The company either has something breaking or they run out of usable material to keep work flow going. The job is not worth the pay they start you out at.

Pros

A lot of time off

Cons

Everything else

no loyalty

your just a number to upper management at corp, They do not respect how hard you work or the sacrifices you make on behalf of the company.upper management has vey little or no knowledge what is involved in running a store daily. They only care about rules they make up while sitting in their offices, and even that they mess up badly per you tube.

Pros

discount on tires, healthcare, 401

There are opportunities for growth and advancement as long as you are effective at leveraging your netowork

Goodyear provides career development and growth for all associates in entry to mid-level roles; above that, a well connected network is needed for advancement. Systems and process are older, but in general there is a clear effort to update them and become more current with the world. True efforts from the C-suite to make positive, permanent changes for the corporation. It is a very diverse company and this is valued, however, inclusion is not always displayed. Most of the time, it comes as just being part of the "in" group, not necessarily linked to race, gender, or faith. It is a very political organization.

Pros

Salary and benefits, compensation in general

Cons

Very politiical. Good-old-boy club

Beware

The owner is a child who throws fits on a daily basis. When he gets stressed out. He yells, puts his workers down , talk very disrespectful to his workers. You are not a equal or even a person. When you confront him about the way he talks. He will act like a fool, gets defensive or blames something or someone else.

Pros

Some times the boss will buy everyone a pop.

Cons

Leaders are weak minded and can not keep his cool.

A rat race with incompetent upper management

After nearly a decade with the company the focus has changed from helping people with their vehicles and tires to extracting every available penny regardless of customer needs. Dishonest practices are ignored and therefore encouraged by district and corporate management who focus purely on unrealistic metrics and focus studies and know nothing about automotive service or building customer relationships. From store manager down to the technicians, prepare to be belittled. Forget about upward mobility, the cronyism is unreal. You either play golf with or married into the management clique (formerly from Target) or you can prepare to rot in place... regardless of how stellar your performance is. If you're a top performer you can expect a pat on the back and a fake gold pin every five years. Wouldn't recommend anyone to work for this company which is swirling the drain (see the 5yr stock chart). 25 year old antiquated point of sale software? Check. Zero company provided training for upcoming techs/salespeople? Check. Zero preparation for changing industry standards? Check. Terrible discount program? Check. Company initiatives designed to take business from the retail stores and money from your paycheck? BIG CHECK. The only positive of working for Goodyear is job stability regardless of lackluster performance and some good people in some stores... just be prepared for a life of mediocrity in a company that survives on name recognition alone.

Pros

Job stability

Cons

Everything else you can imagine AND MORE
