    I have been working at Goodyear as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    You will never be under trained. There are tons of opportunities to earn certifications, take classes, and learn new skills. The headquarters is beautiful with tons of amenities (gym, amazing cafeteria, clinic, starbucks, a mini kitchen on each floor). This was the best place to be starting out my career because I am able to learn so much from the classes and the people around me. Also, this is an exciting time for Goodyear because they are steadily growing, so I feel like that can only bring with it more opportunities.

    Cons

    It is a massive corporation... so if you are planning on climbing the corporate ladder, be prepared for a long climb. Its easy to get lost in a company this large.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that there is a legitimate need for an intern before you hire one... there is nothing worse than having people sit around twiddling their thumbs, for both the employee and the employer.

    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. Some of the processes are quite heavy, and this should be corrected with time.

    Pros

    Promote from within and the opportunity to run your shop as you see fit.

    Cons

    Little to no support from higher ups. They put you in a run-down shop, allow you to restore it, then move you to another run-down shop. Long hours and horrible benefits. Oh, and forget about taking holidays off, they have you work nearly every one, while the corporate office gets every holiday off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow managers to fix and keep their shops instead of having the good ones repair and move on.
