I was a contractor at General Motors.
SENIOR DESIGNER (Former Employee), Warren, MIJuly 26, 2015
Pros: Training, training and more training.
Cons: Lunch breaks are only a half an hour long
1, A great place to work.
2. Contractors are treated like second class citizens. For example, a flood occurred at GM last summer and flooded all of the tunnels to all of the buildings. So, how did they pay for part of the tunnel flooding? They gave the all of the contractors random UNPAID furlough days. The direct people still got to work their 40 hour work week. Then in April, all of the direct employees got a profit sharing check for $9,300.00. Does this seem fair?
3. Then there are the annoying little things like putting the "C" next to your name in the phone directory. Why don't they just make us all wear "Day-Glow" orange shirts to discern the contractors from the direct employees.
4. Other than the last two gripes, GM has a very positive working environment. You work hand in hand with your engineers and mentor other designers.
5. Management has a total open door policy and were always extremely cooperative and flexible.
6. The hardest part of the job were release dates. Even though management drew a line in the sand that said the designers were not to make any changes a week before the release date, the engineers still tried to impinge on that date.
7. The working conditions were great.
8. The people were always friendly and pleasant, both direct employees and contractors.

Manufacturer/Team Assembler (Former Employee), Arlington, TXJuly 22, 2015
Pros: good pay for permanent
Cons: rain, snow or sleet..they expect you on line and ready to go!
GM has its own city..the people are quite different. Most are kind and intelligent but there are some who, you have to wonder how they got the job. Unfortunately the union will work on those peoples behalf.( the lazy ones) Other then that the money and benefits are good if you get on as a permanent employee.

Worst Environment
Customer Relations Specialist (Former Employee), Austin, TXJuly 14, 2015
Pros: The pay rate
Cons: Nonprofessional, Childish Environment
General Motors has to be the worst job I have ever worked for. This is located on Ben White Boulevard. A typical day at work does consist of managing inbound and or outbound calls and relaying information to customers. I've learned great customer service skills and was coached greatly for improvement. Management on the floor there are unprofessional some supervisors that are available and do love their job. However when you don't like what your doing you tend to not really worry about performance of employees. The hardest part of the job well that just usually depends on challenging situations with the people that General Motors chooses to hire through the contracted company Concentrix. This was not a very friendly environment or perhaps I should say don't get too friendly with these people. They will do what they can to make sure you do not succeed if you have potential for growth well you almost would have to be a part of the gossip and alliances that seem to be happening among the HR department and supervisors on the floor.

Productive environment that promotes learning
Business Performance Leader (Current Employee), Detroit, MIJuly 13, 2015
Pros: Coworkers care about eachother
Cons: Limited Job advancement
High energy environment. I am fortunate to work with very smart and hard working coworkers. Another great thing is the unique environment in place that fosters the ability to learn more about the business. However, I feel that long term vision, strategy, and planning could be better and day to day activities continue to be reactive for business continuity. There is also sluggish internal movement to adopt new technology and major IT outsourcing has led to poor ability to service the customer.
