Being on time and Attendance was very important. the line started at the top of the hour beginning each shift rather your at your station or not. I learned to use a bunch of different power tools, read manifest and 6 months after working there I was put into the "pool" where I was responsible for Relieving workers and replace anyone that would miss days. Management was very distant but handled a comfortable workplace. Co-workers was very welcoming. Hardest thing about the job was Keeping up with the line until you get the hang of things. I loved the wages and scheduling.
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Lordstown, OH – July 17, 2017
I enjoyed my time at General Motors,no job is to hard you just have to be willing to learn the jobs,i learned to work with alot of different people alot of different attitudes you just mind your business and do your job,if you have a problem go to your supervisor and let them handle any problem with another worker they are good about that,the hardest part of the job is not knowing if you are going home at 10;30pm on Friday,the most enjoyable part of the job is just doing your job to hit the numbers for cars
I really liked working there, was laid off due to seniority
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – July 17, 2017
great job, was laid off due to seniority good place to work . I drove 2hours and 15min one way to work everyday as I really wanted to utilize my experience in the business. Downfall is many people have been laid off due to shift cuts and seniority
Sr. CAD Designer (Current Employee) – Warren, MI – July 17, 2017
Seems to be hard for me personally to get internal jobs outside of my department. I have recently completed my masters degree thinking this would help. I see people that switch jobs but I have not had any luck. I have applied for over 400 positions in 5 years with no luck. Guess I should just sit in the same spot and be happy.
GM is a great company but there is plenty nepotism. I have seen people move straight to the top on a fast track then you have people that remain in the same spot forever. It really depends on who you know and probably the school you attended.
Good Pay, Great work schedule for some, Fair benefits
Nepotism, job opportunites are poor for some, HR plays games with people
Production Worker (Former Employee) – Moraine, OH – July 16, 2017
you earned your pay but you were compensated. Yearly pay increases and great benefits. Diverse work force 10 hour shifts but you worked 4 days and got 5 off before they went to a 8 hour 5 day work week.
GM (Former Employee) – Lordstown, OH – July 15, 2017
GM has always felt like a second family over the years. I've thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere and being a huge part of the automotive industry. The hours itself can be rather strenuous, but the pay makes up for it.
Seeing the car building process, pay is amazing, great people
incompetent management team, short breaks, long hours
IT PMO structured environment, Awesome employees to work for and with
IT Project Manager (Current Employee) – Austin, TX – July 15, 2017
The Austin Innovation Center is a great place if you like structured Project Management in an IT environment. PMs manage 2 - 4 projects with varying IT scope such as software development, COTS Apps, Infrastructure and EDW. Formal PMO that provides governance, process and procedures.
Class A Automotive Tech (Former Employee) – Various – July 13, 2017
The politics in the shop are hard to deal with, the service managers are always scratching off time from your flags but the money is good and the cars are easy to work on I think compared to other brands.
Service managers who want to save GM money at your expense
Strategic Senior Buyer (Current Employee) – Warren, MI – July 11, 2017
The workplace culture is based on respect. I have learned how to manage different personalities in different areas as per some cross functional activities. The most enjoyable part of the job is the teamwork that characterizes the company.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Tennessee – July 10, 2017
I learned to use multiple tools at once on an ongoing line rotating to 6 different jobs in two different areas. The managers were cool easy to get along with the hardest part lasted briefly when I was done with my hands on training. Most enjoyable part was the different people u meet and become friends With.
Line Worker (Former Employee) – warren michigan – July 10, 2017
They have a clean work environment, great team leaders, great break and lunch schedules, nice people to train you, hardest part of the job is pushing large carts loaded with parts . learning new jobs is the best part, knowledge is power.
