    Pros

    Wonderful Human Resources Available, good tech's

    Cons

    Not all middle management had the skills to motivate properly,,,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to check themselves, if a store is doing well with a certain of person, bring him in, discuss his method and have HIM train those who manage by intimidation. This unfortunately seems to be a path many firms are not following up on.
    When your turnover in a certain area is high, generally there needs to be an investigation. Find the answers and increase your revenue.

    Pros

    Goodyear offers good benefits , and the job stability aspect is a huge bonus. There are monetary bonuses to gain, but to attain them is very difficult.

    Cons

    Expect to work very long hours, to try and get everything done. You are expected to do everything possible, to try and get all of the sales you can get, even though some of the products are back ordered.
