Topics regarding layoffs at Goodyear

There'll be more layoffs

This was just the start. We need much better results to be safe, and I don't see that happening any time soon. Sadly, the only way this management knows how to attempt to improve things is through operational cuts. As long as they continue to do... —  read more

Goodyear Danville

For several months now it's been rumors of layoffs and hour cuts. So far it's just rumors. However, Goodyear won't be able to sustain if it continues to hire people with no work ethic. Young people still at home with mama come here and don't give a... —  read more

Are we getting sold?

Any truth to the rumor mill about GT being acquired by hedge funds ? If so, their modus operandi is to strip every company down to bare metal and sell it for scrap.

I was laid off months ago and was finally able to land a job and I’m pretty damn excited about it! How is everyone else doing? Were you able to land on your feet quickly or are you having a difficult time like I did? For those who found something was... —  read more

Should I still be worried?

So far just a huge, voluntary reduction in workforce. 740 current employees at the plant just accepted buyouts. That reduction probably eliminates the prospect of layoffs for the immediate future. I'd like to think so as well, but weren't they... —  read more 


All employees that took the voluntary layoff are being notified that Friday 12-20-19 will be the exit day. All employees who did not take the buyout will be reporting back Jan 2nd.

Is Gadsden closing?

Nothing official yet but all the signs point to an eventual shutdown. The corporation has made no investments in the plant in over 10 years and buyouts were offered to all eligible employees in the plant last month. The plant also recently... —  read more 

The DEVIL we all know

I’m a Goodyear employee at the Gadsden plant in Alabama and most of us heard about the layoff just like everyone else did today. I personally got news of it first when I went into a store this morning and saw it on the front page of the newspaper and... —  read more 

Window Dressing @ Goodyear

Management is more interested in window dressing by hiring Business Development suits who are absolutely useless in generating business. To balance the books they will now fire hard working workers who really need the jobs and work at it unlike the... —  read more

I work for this implant and they have their heads so far up their asses they don’t know what to do when faced with adversity. Now they are talking about lay-off but nobody in the office seems to do anything to prevent that. They won’t even look at... —  read more

Akron Layoffs...

Hearing rumors that layoffs are coming to Akron. Company has lost almost 50% in value in the last 9 months. Price of raw materials, falling stock price, worker's safety related lawsuits, closures in Europe - everything is weighing us down.

Make sure you don't get hurt

I’ve been with Goodyear for a number of years. Never had a problem until recently when I had an injury. Reported it to my supervisor who gave me the impression he didn’t believe me. He just wanted me to ‘s--- it up’ by taking some OTC medicine to... —  read more 

Layoffs in Akron ?

Any updates folks? I am in EMEA and get this obnoxious "Business Development Managers" visit us from time to time, talk to us in a condescending manner, eat and drink wine at company money, blow some hot air, treat us like we are really stupid and... —  read more 

No work/life balance

I used to love working here, but lately it has turned into a never ending work-sleep-work-sleep pattern that I can’t seem to escape. Being in (lower) management it’s become difficult to maintain any kind of balance outside of work. Very long hours... —  read more

Goodyear really needs to update its equipment and improve on our safety training! Some positions are physically challenging and labor intensive, and working with obsolete equipment that is outdated can increase the chances of an accident. Not to... —  read more
