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.

The management could use some interpersonal skills training but other than that they do try to accommodate your request and concerns. Room to advance is there as well.
Pros
Hour of break per shift
Cons
The immaturity between shifts. No working together for a common goal.

Its an oaky place to work, its gets very boring and repetitive. You have to hope you get on a good shift otherwise you will do all of the work yourself will everyone else does absolutely nothing for 8 hours a day. team leads are great they really help you out and understand you cause they were once in your position
Pros
Great job if you love being on the phone
Cons
they will shorten your breaks, horrible coworkers

You get 7 days off in a month, job is not too bad. Pay is pretty decent, get as much over time you want. I haven't really been here long but they offer a sign on bonus
Pros
Days off
Cons
Equipment and building is outdated

Hard work is not the problem with this company. You must be willing and motivated to work. By doing so you can bring home a good weekly salary. If this company had better management and was willing to pay good workers what they were worth, it wouldn't be a bad place to have a continuous career. Me personally I loved the work but issues with management and lazy coworkers is the reason can be stressful
Pros
Good salary, sometimes receive free training, and you get to meet alot of good drivers.
Cons
Management never handles issues the right way, You will never get a raise and management will not do anything for you to get a raise, If you are a good worker alot of the work and calls they will try to put off on you, It can be alot of drama amongst coworkers and lazy workers always get out of work

Older employees want newer employees to fail if they don't fit into their "clique". Good pay and benefits. 12 hours shifts. Union company but not as bad as some that I've seen.
Pros
Great benefits and pay
Cons
Rough on the body, toxic environment

They were an amazing company to work with. They offered a covid work from home opportunity and are willing to work with your personal schedule very well. If I ever needed to take time off or had an unexpected personal emergency happen they were very willing to let me clock out early and take the time to take care of it.

Reviewing machine production schedules by unqualified operators a decision to manipulate manpower to other jobs has backfired. Less pride in being successful because you will be moved to machine thats low in output. Depletes a rhythm to complete a 12 hr shift, knowing you will be told to subsidize your labour to cover a lazy employee.Every new TM trains to build tires, a bid system to move to a more exciting job becomes useless when you are told to function in your previous position. Often Managers are placed in a position to fail ...only a change from Plant Manage down, will prevent epic failure as employees hate the current positions.
Pros
Only Wage
Cons
No Flexibility to achieve personal goals, unManagable managers

Base pay + commission sounds good until all the work is taken from you from the lead tech so they make all the money while leaving you to look bad on the books with no work to show for it. It's a one man show at this location and management doesn't care. Jerked around to multiple franchise locations to start over and it's the same story to a different tune. Base pay was fair, but work load was not. No opportunities to advance.
Pros
Base pay
Cons
hierarchy within

Show up for shift and just do your job and nothing else, do not worry about telling managers or other employees if there is a problem because they wont care anyways. Build tires and nothing else, they don't even care how you do it or what stock you use. Just pump out volume. Anything not nailed down will be stolen, and when your machine breaks you will be left standing alone waiting hours for repairs, but still liable for missed production. Take your breaks if you get a chance and when you get back the machine will be messed up so good luck.
Pros
Great schedule with pretty decent pay
Cons
Zero support from staff and everyone is just out for themselves.

The goodyear tire and rubber co. Is well rounded in the fact that they make and distribute their own tires, learning the tools to inspect a tire can range from just plain eyesight, if you see a bubble on the tire automatic scrap, cause it will result in a blowout
Pros
Big bonuses, Pay good
Cons
Extremely hot and short break times
