Amazing place to work, particularly for an entry level operator.. The training, opportunity for advancement, and stability makes it one of the better plants to work on the Houston ship channel.
Pros
Overtime
Cons
Waiting three years for top compensation

Set up to fail. My District Manager even confirmed that. Not a good experience that I care to elaborate on further. My background was in tires and I received no training in parts and service when hired.
Pros
None

It is a good place to work at and depending on location and team members, it can be much better and it is fast paced and lots of hard work in the outdoors.

very unprofessional management and unsupportive; not the same as when first started; used to be a family company but now is every man for himself and too much finger pointing

Work schedule is hard to stick with if you have a family. you will be overworked without compensation if you tend to be a golden goose. career progression is slow and not as rewarding aas the blood and sweat you put into it.
Pros
hour lunch
Cons
Management, carrer advancement

Goodyear has changed a lot in the last few years and the change is visible in culture and leadership. The business results and stock prices over the last 3 years are a testament to a good strategy and its execution by some of the most competent people in the industry. Proud to have been part of the change and turnaround story.

I would load and unload tires. I would build tires clean the warehouse. I would bag then and put in the oven and make sure they are cooking right.. its a labor job and its very hot in the warehouse.. it has good people working there.

A typical day at Goodyear tire and rubber as a Store manager is high pace. I have to manage both employees of the shop and customers, to provide the perfect atmosphere. I also have to maintain and keep track of inventory and parts and meet sales goals on a daily basis. I have learned at my time at Goodyear how to manage in the greatest pressure situations, to problem solve and market and grow a business. When I took over as store manager the store was a $50,000 dollar a month store, now it's an $80,000 a month store. The hardest part of the job especially over the past two years has been keeping a service manager to work under me. I trained my last great service manager and he got promoted to his own store and after that I have worked several months in a row fro 7am to 7pm six days a week. It has taken it's toll on me. What I enjoy the most are the customers I am a people person so I love my customers and my employees.

This is a family owned business and they show with loyalty and love to customers and one another. I love the honesty in work and ethics that the employer have and I couldn't imagine working in a better place in the automotive field.
Pros
Free lunches on sat, understanding employers, and great work hours.
Cons
Nothing

Definitely a lot of opportunity to move up in the company. Must be able to provide top notch customer service and maintain optimal sales growth. Management can be demanding once you start answering to upper levels but in store management is laid back and friendly as long as you are doing well at your job. Schedules can be very hectic and balancing outside life with a position of higher responsibility with this company can be difficult as scheduling can be very demanding. Overall great company to work for with plenty of opportunity to grow within company.
Pros
Benefits, employee discounts, pay, positive environment
Cons
high sales expectations, some understaffing, scheduling long hours
