 "I chose Goodyear out of college because they are a large, well respected, global company with a great reputation. The initial training they provided me was second to none and helped me launch my career. I continue to choose Goodyear every day because of the ample opportunities they have provided me throughout my career, the great culture within the company, and the rewarding experiences I have every day as part of my sales team."
