With a few improvements AM General would be a great place to work.
Quality Assurance Inspector (Former Employee) –  Mishawaka, INOctober 2, 2017
A good place to work. I wish they would have utilized a more structured production process. On average a team member starts early and gets off early. For example if you worked in general assembly, your start time would be 6:00 am and your finish time would be 2:30 pm. The benefits are adequate, however at one time during my employment at AM General the benefits and hourly wages were great.
Pros
Good work envitoment
Cons
Lack of process structure

Good Government Contractor
Principle Engineer (Current Employee) –  Livonia, MIMay 24, 2017
Great cafeteria. Management doesn't seem to have a clear hierarchy or a process for disseminating information. Different divisions are separate technically and logistically even though they are in the same office space. Technically, there is a lot of talent. They work well with the US government as a customer, but seem to lose focus in the commercial market.
Pros
Close to town
Cons
Overall corporation not managed well

A strong working environment but feast of famine
Supervisor Bodyshop (Former Employee) –  Mishawaka, INDecember 15, 2016
On the floor all shift long. Not for the person who wants to have meetings and go back to their desk.Management is stuck in an old fashion mode, but partly due to the union's affect on the jobs.

Production worker (Former Employee) –  Mishawaka, INSeptember 3, 2013
I would go in at 6:00am, start working on one of three machines I had to run. I learned how to manage my time in order to get everything done. My co-worker were good people, we all worked well together. At first the hardest part was learning how to work while moving. The most enjoyable part was the people

lay-offs

Alright company - flexible schedule
IS&S Analyst (Current Employee) –  South Bend, INAugust 8, 2013
Company is structured around military values. Love the people I work with. It's hard for someone to put their whole heart and soul into their job only to get more to do with no rewards or compensations. If you are a woman, don't plan on going anywhere fast as you will hit a glass ceiling.
Pros
Flexiable hours to work around family schedule
Cons
Pay, compensations, advancement opportunities

Routing Clerk (Former Employee) –  Livonia, MIJuly 30, 2012
Patience is a virtue. At the General, you will learn that being patient has its rewards. It is at times difficult to wait and see, but eventually management does come around & reward their employees.

I worked for this company twice & found after a 10 year return to work, it hadn't changed a bit.

If you are seeking steady employment & can adjust to the culture there, you will do fine.
Pros
long term employment
Cons
45 minute lunches, culture, strict work hours
