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
Pros
It’s a job
Cons
Everything in between

Senior management leadership lacking, hires people out of business to run stores and districts instead of promoting within company. Hard work, loyalty, dedication means nothing
Pros
Good work environment at store level
Cons
Lack of promotion, leadership at senior level only cares for themselves

My time at Goodyear was bad. A lot of work for little pay. Management does their best to keep you at the same level. Lack of respect for employees. I wouldn't recommend anyone to work for Goodyear if you want a career in automotive.
Pros

Cons
you have a job.

Goodyear does not value experience over education even though they say they do now. Many policies change to what is best for management at the time and not employees.

Very good compensation, but that did not compensate for the long hours, stress and negative work environment that surrounds the automotive industry. You would have to be a real car enthusiast to enjoy the work.
Pros
Compensation and benefits
Cons
Unrewarding work atmosphere

The job started out to be a good place to work and retire. But midstream, the parent company took over and it went downhill immediately. Our parent company was more worried about moving units instead of customer service.
Pros
Get to meet a wide array of cultures
Cons
behind the eight ball all the time

Great products but poor work environment. Poor work/life balance based on expectations of leadership. Exceedingly political environment. Poor performers protected.

If you are a manager be expected to be heavily micromanaged by corporate office and regional staff. medical compensation is OK but could use improvement. Fun working with Goodyear as long as you stay out of management. pay not as competitive as other Commercial dealers such as Michelin or Bridgestone.
Pros
most of people
Cons
micromanagement

Goodyear allows associates to advance their career through continuous improvement planning. As management, if you don't have a four-year degree, you max your potential as a store manager. But, that shouldn't be a surprise in today's world.
Pros
Good company - positive culture - they want you to succeed
Cons
Capped on pay scale - incentives ultimately become out of reach

On a typical day, you can plan learning that if something is in correct, you can be awarded with the you did it in correctly award. Told that you're are the reason for problems, and it is driven into the ground. The hardest part is working with don nelson and seeing just how he can award you into the ground. Enjoyable part, closing time.
Pros
Does have good points
Cons
Don Nelson

Relentless with job demands to be audit compliant and employee retention. When a good team is developed one of two things happen. Good talent is pulled to a different position at a different location (so called promotion) or they demand lay offs due to the nature of the business.
Pros
Compensation
Cons
Negative Culture and Enviroment

You work 5.5 to 6 days per week. Highly sales driven. Long days for the pay. Good compensation package, but you definitely work for it. Room for advancement is not there. Their bonus structure is horrible.
Pros
Be your own boss
Cons
Plenty of hours for the pay
