Fast-Paced, but a laid back group of people. Great atmosphere. Made a lot of friends just like family. Wages and Insurance were two main keys about this job.

Management is under tremendous pressure to meet production goals. The unrealistic demands from upper managers cause great stress on lower level employees. Co-workers are unfriendly at best, and at worst will backstab and blame everyone but themselves when there is any kind of problem. The ONLY thing that matters to this company is profits, and lots of it. The attitude is "Do what I told you... We didn't hire you to think!" The above average pay is the only reason anyone ever stays with this outfit. (By the way, even with their "slave driver" mentality, they couldn't get enough from the employees and decided to close down the local plant in 2011.)

There was a bad union (not all unions are bad) that treated everything like a conflict. It made it hard due to trying to satisfy the employer and the union reps.

I worked there as an intern in the stock room for the human resource department. It was an opportunity for me to learn the basic necessities of HR and fueled my dream to pursue HR as a career.

The heat was the hardest part of the job. The work area was also dirty. The people were great and we had good supervisors. I supplied supplies to machines and it had to be done in a timely manner. I learned that I am a strong person who can do a great job and be very proud of my job.
Pros
healthcare and retirement
Cons
the plant closed

Good Year was my first experience with making tires for vehicles. The management was cohesive and collaborative. The culture was a family culture. The hardest part was managing employees that had longevity with the company. The comradery with the employees.

As a manager here it was tough. A union environment is not for everyone but it was one of the reasons my salary was so good. Lack of trust would be the biggest issue I could see between management and hourly employees
Pros
pay is great
Cons
stress of the job

I really enjoyed the time I had there, but at the age of 25, it gave me hypertension. Stress level to perform was extremely high. Left for less stressful career, and one with advancement opportunities.

Plenty of room for advancement at times. They shutdown our plant and gave everyone the opportunity to move to other plants across the United States. I chose not to move
