Great work atmosphere. Team oriented environment with great work life balance. Plus had the opportunity to work overtime and get quarterly bonuses. Did not have the opportunity for advancement due to plant closure. Personally could not relocate with the company at this time.
Great work atmosphere
Plant was in need of repairs
Pay and benefits are great only because of our Union. Management is poor to say the least. I wouldn't hire them to manage an outhouse.
Pay and benefits were great because of the Union. Management was absolutely horrible. They sabotaged our plant by gutting quality and maintenance to make a long story short.
Pay and benefits only because of the Union
Poor, useless, no good, dirty, rotten, low down management from top to bottom
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
Big bonuses, Pay good
Extremely hot and short break times
The work was hard but it paid well. The worst part was horrible management and managers that were only out to get people fired. The days you worked were good because out of a two week period you only worked seven days.
Negative reinforcement is all you will receive or be allowed to give to your team. Dishonest backstabbing upper management.
Most beat down your subordinates culture I’ve ever experienced in over 30 years of management experience. Zero positive reinforcement from above and zero team building incentive to pass along you your team.
Pay and benefits
Outdated management philosophy
I worked with a very diverse group of people which I loved. I always learned something new whether it be mechanical or production. My managers were very helpful and respectful. I worked with a wonderful group of co-workers who were very helpful and respectful. The hardest part of the job was the extreme heat in the summer months. The most enjoyable part of my job was my wonderful co workers.
This place was terrible to work for because of how they treat you but the pay was so good people just dealt with it to the best of their abilities. Floor level managers get the worse treatment because you are getting it from the workers and the managers above
I have worked with 2 different Goodyear's in 20 years and have held several different jobs during those years. Recently got laid off and looking for job opportunities around paris,tn.
I've learned alot and met some wonderful people with the company. the pay was great it afforded my familiy a comfortable living. the work wasn't bad nor was the job stressful. could've had better management.
non knowledgeable management
I liked working there goodyear was a good plant to work at I hated that I had to leave but I did and looking For new opportunities I hope it works out for me I’m still looking for a good place to work atMaybe I will find it in the future I hope so
My location has seriously poor management. Poor decisions that have cost the company money and production. Most management is concerned about themselves and who ever is in their circle of friends. More like a social gathering than a place of business! I was a salaried associate and it made me sick at how we did business. No regard fir quality or safety unless they were caught.
the work/life balance was pretty bad, many were expected to be on call 24/7 even if there was someone else that knew the position and was supposed to be on call. Sick days were discouraged from being taken even if you were sick, and salary employees are not treated very well. Union plants have strange rules when it comes to being paid for overtime, and often if you were salary you were expected to be exempt from overtime. if issues cropped up it was expected to be all hands on deck, even if you had no way of assisting righting whatever was going wrong, and if you weren't chances are coworkers would blame you for the issue or delay in fixing it.
healthcare, overtime expected, management blame if something goes wrong
