Excellent employer, great working conditions and pay, great cars to work on, great workshop, well equipped, worked at Chelsea Victoria,Workshop from 1/6/2015-30/7/2015, it’s just a shame they didn’t have enough work for me that’s why the position ended as a Qualified Automotive Technician.

Handling customer needs and making recommendations of products. That one hat doesn't fit all. I was the manager in 95% of positions I held. The culture of this main industry in which I worked created in employees a transient mentality. Keeping good quality employees. Maintaining a harmonious working environment between 12 employees at one time and finding reliable replacement staff. Achieving goals and targets set by senior management over 8 years
taking a large commercial branch from a loosing money position to one of the biggest sales and profitable stores out side of Brisbane and receiving the rewards of that achievement.

Although a large company, Goodyear is a very friendly place to work and the teams are quite close knit. It was a lot of fun and they communicate business position regularly and very well.

The culture was good when I was there but be prepared to work hard as it is always on the go.
Pros
Good discounts on products

For a job in a foreign country, it was very good experience learning how to service multiple brands of vehicles. Competitive pay and a reasonable amount of time off are a plus, as well as a very lax working environment.
Pros
Good pay, friendly management.
Cons
New shop, limited equipment.

Diverse, challenging work place. Working with well known and respected brands. Good people dedicated to the business. Some potential for promotion. Does not have a work/life balance culture.

Co-worker is lazy and constantly complaining about the heat. Typical day can include anywhere from 3 - 10 cars, not including accessory fitting. This co-worker is not reliable at doing his job and would rather stay in the air-conditioned office and leave the work to me. That and not being appreciated for the work I do is probably the hardest part of the job. However, there are good days as well when no one is stressed. These are the days we all get along and everything runs smoothly. I have learned a lot regarding the tyre business while working here and that I can have confidence in myself and my work.

During my time at Goodyear I learned to fit tyres to passenger, commercial, 4WD, buses and truck vehicles. I was able to assess the cars tyres and alignment and make the adjustments and give advice to the customers as necessary depending on the situation. On a daily basis the team cooperated and worked well with one another during the busy times to get everything done fast and at a high standard. During the quiet times we packed away stock and tidied the store to an acceptable manner, I learned to adapt quickly at a face paced environment and pick up skills quickly and use those skills to better my work and team building ethic.
Pros
Bonds with new people, working in a great environment
