Productive and challenging job!
Step in as Team Leader (Former Employee) –  Montgomery, ALMarch 13, 2017
There are a lot of great people who I worked with at HMMA. The work culture can be tough at times. Production Team Members are challenged with repetitive and physical work. It can be very demanding at times. Swing shift can be tough. However, it was a very rewarding job. The company takes care of it's Team Members. Attendance incentives and competitive pay for are nice perks. Lots of paid time off and the availability to advance within the company.
Pros
Pay and benefits
Cons
Swing shift

Steady, great paying job, with minor drawbacks
Quality Control Inspector (Former Employee) –  Montgomery, ALJuly 11, 2016
This is a good place to work overall. The pay is great, the benefits are as well. They try to make employees feel good about the work they do on an individual and collective level. Great job security. The overall moral is okay, and does not inhibit your work no matter what the mood is. Good Supervision/Management is selective, but as a whole it is good. I would recommend the job to anyone looking for employment.
Pros
Benefits, work hours, on site facilities, job security
Cons
Rotating shifts, no stock options, advancement is tough

Productive workplace with an distinct work culture
Web Developer (Former Employee) –  Fountain Valley, CAAugust 24, 2016
Being a web developer at Hyundai is different than other medium to large scale enterprises. Hyundai utilizes state-of-the-art architectures and industry-proven methods to accomplish their goals. And the work culture here is more fixed on quantity and quality over compensation/benefits and work/life balance.

A typical workday would consist of going to work, doing a daily meeting, completing required programming tasks, and wrapping up for the day. This arrangement provides a few pros such as keeping work transparent and making projects manageable but presents cons such as working overtime and juggling multiple tasks that aren't in your scope. And its simply part of the Korean company culture.

Co-workers at Hyundai dress professionally for the week (except on casual Fridays), and understands business etiquette and best practices. Overall, I enjoyed working with the co-workers. As well as communicating with them, we each learned something from each other.

The hardest part of the job is being able to understand code from previous developers, and extending that technical flow so that everyone is on the same page. But besides code maintenance, new features such as embedding Google Map, and implementing Android Auto are quite enjoyable.

Overall, Hyundai provided me a stage to execute enterprise level projects using the latest technologies.
Pros
Large company provides stability, chance to grow
Cons
Excessive over time, project delays by other team creates issue

Great work environment. Good pay and benefits.
Assembly Team Member (Current Employee) –  Montgomery, ALMay 10, 2016
A typical day working at Hyundai Motors includes rotating to various jobs where I install different auto parts to help complete the process of building quality Hyundai vehicles.

Over the last 11 years working at Hyundai, i've learned the importance of team work, communication, consistency and paying attention to detail. Managers have always been available easy to communicate with. My co-workers have been easy to work with since day one.

The hardest part of the job is the rotating shifts every month. Sometimes it's difficult to adjust from month to month. The most enjoyable part of the job is working around great people.
Pros
Great pay, benefits, clean/safe work environment
Cons
Rotating shifts

Cons
Terrible work life balance. This job ages you beyond belief, they pay well however you work yourself to death.... not worth it... The new system they have rolled out is clunky and does not work. They threaten, that if you don't buy in they will get rid of you.

internet sales manager assistant - Car Sales (Former Employee) –  Doral, FLFebruary 7, 2017
the day begins with reviewing the day before, the work advanced to be done next day. work is never done. The back bone of the salesmen is management. The hardest part is to convey to manager and customer an agreeable price. The most ejoyable part of the job when you are recommended, and the customer says: I did not come in to buy. Overall review, the company is excellent
Pros
the assistance to complete a job with the customers
Cons
when the computer is down

Perfect place to grow
Sales Associate (Current Employee) –  Bakersfield, CADecember 15, 2016
This job requires a lot, as such as being on your feet for 12 hours, making calls and doing your certifications everyday and waiting for customers.Regular timeline with a customer usually takes about 5 hours. Most annoying part of the job is that we have a dress code and GM doesn't want employees growing beards or have tattoos. Clean shave every day and hide your tattoos and white shirt with tie or you'll be send home. You put in a lot of hours but at the end of the month you only get the bigger check, hourly or commission not both.
Pros
Free lunch on weekends
Cons
more than 60 hrs a week in order to make $4, 000 a month because you dont get paid hourly if your commission is higher

Bad management and disrespectful
Lube Technician (Former Employee) –  CardinaleWay corona caOctober 4, 2016
Worst place i haved ever worked management area needs new managers they dont respect anyone at all. I was a lube tech there, work is really slow the whole shift is based on cleaning the shop and not working on cars since vehicles hardly come in for service and it gets boring really fast. Its like your a janitor more than a tech. Days off are split so doesn't give anytime to really do anything or plan. I dont advise to work here if you want to be respected or be a janitor lmao!! Not worth the pay..
Pros
No pros.
Cons
No breaks, cleaning all the time, and management aka Arn

Sr. Manager (Former Employee) –  Fountain Valley, CADecember 16, 2016
The hours and culture are extremely demanding. But the smaller teams allow for great bonding and people in general look out for each other. There is not a lot of room for advancement.

Quick lube technician (Current Employee) –  Centennial, COJanuary 23, 2017
Advancement is limited, majority of the quick lube technicians are mainly Spanish speakers so the work enviroment isn't the greatest for someone who doesn't speak Spanish. The training is not the best, though everybody is extremely friendly

Customer Analytics Specialist (Former Employee) –  Tempe, AZMarch 13, 2017
I was placed in a position of authority, with lack of experience. But because of my character and personality, I was able to juggle the strategic and professional guidelines while Managing performance and team development. But if this responsibility was placed on another individual that was not equipped to handling pressure and strict guidelines, it could easily become overwhelming, at times.

Good organization
District Parts and Service Manager (Former Employee) –  FloridaNovember 13, 2015
Hyundai Motor America had it's difficult times in the early days. Product quality was it's largest foe, which, to this day, still plagues the company somewhat in spite of the tremendous improvements in the product quality and line-up.
The corporate culture is good, but not exceptional. Constructive criticism was often quashed at the regional level and not allowed to filter up to executive management, or was watered-down to meet regional management's satisfaction.
Pros
compensation package, holidays, vacation time, good organization
Cons
long work hours, micro-management mentality

I learn a lot through the company, the culture is descent. The hardest part of the job is the rotations of the shifts every month, your body doesn't get a chance to adjust properly.
