Awesome pay. Work not so bad. Business volatile. Lawton, Ok Plant

Current Employee - Production Worker  in  Lawton, OK (US)
Current Employee - Production Worker in Lawton, OK (US)

I have been working at Goodyear full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Pay, healthcare, 401 k. Lots of scheduled days off. With 12 hr shifts it doesnt take long to get 40 hrs.

Cons

You're constantly playing by a new set of rules.

You're on camera.

Any accident is always your fault

The word about good pay has made its way everywhere. So every average joe from all over wants this thing. I had a cab driver tell me that they moved there from Georgia so they could become a contractor (who gets paid min wage and work 12hr shifts) just to get their foot in the door.

They created a new pay scale for new hired prod. workers. You start at half pay and get a 10% increase every 6 months until you get full pay (which takes 2 1/2 yrs).

I cant reccommend this job to friends and family bc of the new pay scale rules

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management is diiferent in all departments. You either like them or you dont.

    I worked at Goodyear as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I barely had the opportunity to get myself started at Goodyear, but I did certainly feel I was contributing substantively to an important project from the get-go. Everyone at Goodyear was extremely friendly. Overall, if it were still possible for younger foreigners to work there, it would be a great place to work.

    Cons

    For a younger foreigner who wants to work in China, this review is basically inapplicable since the company now has a policy against hiring such foreigners either as interns or directly out of school. I wish that the troubles that led to this policy had been communicated to me before I arrived.

    Pros

    Good reputation, CEO has a clear vision

    Cons

    Limited resources, lots of top down pressure. Demanding management unwilling to give necessary support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to improve, you have to display commitment.
