    I have been working at Goodyear full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - great culture
    - everyone likes to get to know everyone in the office (Canadian Office)
    - great salary package and compensation, Defined Benefit retirement plan, not too many companys doing that anymore
    - many opportunities to grow, if willing to move to Akron, Ohio, not too many or at all in Canadian office

    Cons

    - Company has been doing well since 2008 downturn, but continues to have layoffs as a cost cutting measure

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - because of the numerous opportunities to grow, theres alot of people changing jobs within the company in Akron. Transition between people needs to be better, doesnt seem like person changing moving out of the position trains the person coming in very well enough to ensure a smooth transition

    I have been working at Goodyear full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good paying salary, great benifits we work 12 hr rotation shifts so you only work 14 days a month lots of time off.

    I work with a great bunch of people and that really makes your job

    Cons

    Cutbacks in order to save money sometimes means things don't get fixed right away

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe that you have forgotten the basics when it comes to the floor decisions at times you need to remember where you came from and how you got where you are.

    Remember Back to basics

    I have been working at Goodyear

    Pros

    Goodyear is a great company to work for, with a really attentive management and a great work-life balance. The environment is quite demanding in terms of objectives, but this is how they have been over achieving over the past 5 years.

    Cons

    Policies are still under development, and need to be implemented soon to support all employees.

    Pros

    Good working conditions. Rewarded for hard work.

    I have been working at Goodyear full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Family owned.
    Been a part of the Community for over 100 years. The shop that I work in has been a part of the community for over 37 years. I get to meet new people every day and they are some of the best people you would ever be blessed to meet

    Cons

    No structure.
    The company I work for is a very good company so I don't want you to take these cons as a reason not to come there. The owner is an extremely busy lady but she tries to be a part of the company way too much

    I worked at Goodyear full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Training opportunities abound. Plenty of room for advancement for anyone who doesn't mind hard work. Overall Goodyear is a good company to work for. On a higher level they are a very honest company with high integrity.

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance. To achieve decent compensation required to give up home life. Benefits are mediocre at best. Some organizations within the company are rather cutthroat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Certain organizations within the company seem to have no clear direction. Getting everyone on the same page working with the same core values would certainly be a plus to the company.

    I have been working at Goodyear full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great money once you hit full pay. When I started it took 1 year. But then it went to 30 months. They match what you put into 401k. Making that much money, its easy to get the best medical plan and other things that they provide. 7 day breaks once a month.

    Cons

    Jobs are touch. I ran 17-2000 row. Anyone who knows the plant knows its hard work. But the money is worth it, if you can hang in there long enough to get it. Long hours. Depending on your job, you become so tired at work, that your days off, you sometimes just want to sleep.
