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.
Hour of break per shift
The immaturity between shifts. No working together for a common goal.
Over worked and under paid, if you have a family this is not the place for you unless you are looking for an escape. I’ve worked 70 hrs plus for this company. I worked for them as a manager and turned around a location by 300% to just get a thanks. Good luck
It’s a job
Everything in between
There were so many good things about working for Goodyear and I learned a ton. However the culture has some significant clique's. If you are not part of those, it can be very difficult to find success. It is a highly political environment.
Global Company, Good resources
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.
Salary and benefits, compensation in general
Very politiical. Good-old-boy club
Assist the project manager in day to day activity and set up meetings for our team. Everybody in this company was nice to be around and everybody was willing to help if the need be
great company to work for
always feel like running out of time
If you even consider working for this company and you are a conservative - DON'T. They are blocking any wearing apparel indicating you are a conservative but are allowing apparel indicating you are a leftie. Very bad company culture.Shame on you!!!! My dad was a VP for years and worked for Goodyear his entire career. It was a good company in the 1960s-1980s. Not anymore.RUN
Company leftie culture - very exclusionary for conservatives
A complete joke. So Political, there was no real work being done. Everyone was afraid of challenging the bureaucracy. Managers at the plant would initially sabotage the overall running of the plant. Good old boys club. Worst manufacturing place I’ve ever seen. Dangerously and completely void of any maintenance of equipment.
Training is terrible. Supervisors stressed and yell a lot, very unprofessional! Never feel like your safe with your job. No one talks or works well together. In my 38 years of working this place is by far the worst.
Boring. Terrible Management.
We want to help you find great companies. Help us be the best!
Do these reviews help you learn more about working at Goodyear?
Great place to work. Offers schedule flexibility when needed. Encourages work/life balance as well as diversity and inclusion. Offers career advancement opportunity for many. Goodyear also is very supportive of community outreach efforts and supports many area agencies.
Overall it is a great place to work where you have the ability to work with cross-functional teams and learn new things at your own leisure. For the most part the workplace culture is strong.
Work life balance, internal promotions, culture and benefits
Management to busy for their people, yearly reviews are not meaningful, politics
Goodyear is a joke, they hire new management staff that has no idea how to lead/ coach. The management staff continues to blame everyone else for the issues. The company doesnt want to advance but complains that nothing is changing. The leadership staff needs to change inorder for the place to become better
I enjoyed my tenure at Goodyear. The one thing to mention is when a company hires leadership that tell it professional workforce that Knowledge of your craft is not necessary and anyone can come in and do your job it is demoralizing and unprofessional and destroys a company from the inside out
Great co workers
Goodyear is a great company to work for. The benefits are very good and the environment is professional yet comfortable. There are plenty of opportunities to move up and around within the company. People here are more than willing to help you get to where you want to be. I would highly recommend working here because this company has so much to offer.
I have not been with Goodyear very long, but so far it has been a big adjustment. I cannot give a perfect summary of the job yet, but I essentially have become a full time AP assistant and help with research of invoices that do not get paid for a variety of reasons.
