If you're single or need a job only!
Store Manager (Former Employee) –  GA21 May 2018
Solid company but way too many changes. As long as the bottom line is met on a daily and the complete overload of additional duties are completed daily and accurately every single day, there are no issues. However, employee or customer hurdles occur that WILL hinder your ability to get all desired results accomplished, upper managements philosophy was work later, work harder, cut payroll, you signed up for this, no excuses, will have to evaluate your future with Bridgestone. Completely over whelming and stressful. They preach great pay and family time, deliver on neither. My favorite was always, don't hire, but when some one calls in or leaves early, you just work from 6:30am to 7:30pm, that's your job. That was actually preferred, saved payroll dollars that way. Doesn't matter about your family, just their bottom line. On the other hand, benefits are great! Just too many changes in job functions, duties, required results, time investment, and brow beating from superiors.
Pros
Benefits- Training (somewhat)
Cons
Expectations from Upper Management

No real commission structure
Manager Tire Sales North Myrtle Beach (Former Employee) –  North Myrtle Beach, SC17 May 2018
Too many hoops to jump through to get paid commission or bonus. Always changing structure. 1.6 million in sales and earned 6500 in bonus. Get paid $1 per tire commission but only if storre sold min requirement, unusually 30 more per month tha n u sold last year... very hard... almost impossible... if u miss by 1 tire store wide... no one gets commission.

good place to work overall
Preventive Maintenance Crew Leader (Former Employee) –  Graniteville, SC16 May 2018
The company is a good place to work. The reason for leaving was multiple instances where I was passed over for job positions for people who were less qualified but filled the requirements for other categories. Other than this there was good working environment as long as you knew your role and did not cause any waves.

Management Trainee (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, IN14 May 2018
The managers I worked for were as dishonest as the day is long. They supported misleading customers and allowing other members of management to have a couple drinks at lunch.

Production Control Crew Leader (Current Employee) –  Wilson, NC14 May 2018
I have nothing more to say other than Bridgestone Americas and Bridgestone, in general, is a good company but the Wilson Plant is severely mismanaged and has been for the past several years.

I enjoyed my career working for Bridgestone
General Manager (Former Employee) –  Riverdale, MD8 May 2018
A typical day at work consist of opening the store and greeting guest.Making sure that your staff is in place to handle whatever services are requested.My work place consist of a very diverse culture in staffing and customers. I learned in management that everyone on your staff has different needs and desires and it was my job to fulfill them so that you could maximize their performance. I also learned that by listening to your guest, their needs were easily met by treating people the way you would want to be treated.The hardest part of my job was losing a teammate to a competitor after they were groomed.The most enjoyable part was building a solid team to the point of being on auto pilot and building a good customer base.
