Elite (Former Employee) –  Cusseta, ALAugust 17, 2017
At this job I was taught the value of good product as well as following instructions on how to assemble correctly without the short cuts. A typical day would consist of stocking the line before beginning to run the robots. After the line is completely stocked you would begin to load the jigs and send them back to get welded by the robots. Also minor maintenance was required on the robots like changing the tips and cleaning the weld splat off of the jigs to allow the robots to weld at its maximum potential. There were also quality alerts that had to be followed to ensure that the parts are correct and within specification limits. I love fast paced settings as I get bored very quickly so the speed was very enjoyable.
Pros
Good benefits, great management

General Assembler (Former Employee) –  LaGrange, GAAugust 4, 2017
Shifts are horrible if you have children. Kia underpays employees and makes you wait over two years to be hired on or to get a raise. The hardest part of the job is general assembly. Very hard work for very little pay.

Warehouse Associate (Former Employee) –  Midlothian, VAJune 27, 2017
Wonderful management who really take care of their workers and are very easygoing. Tend to stay busy all day, depending on what you're doing. There were a lot of miscommunication problems that were never solved which caused a pretty hostile work environment at times.
Pros
Fun management

Car Detailer (Former Employee) –  Nashville, TNMay 28, 2017
I would only wash cars when a person buys a car which wouldn't always be often but I was able to see how people would interact with consumers trying to pitch them a deal to make a sell or just having good knowledge on cars to help influence the consumer even more.

Salesman (Former Employee) –  Columbus, GADecember 28, 2016
The people that came to buy cars was never the problem with this place. The problem was the management and the employees that was working there at the time. Most of them other then one person always tried to rip off the costumer and the employees did drugs. I would not want to work at this place again.

Really good company to work for
Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee) –  West Point, GADecember 1, 2016
Typical work day is the same thing everyday, you learn a lot of new skill sets when you get there. Management is OKAY not the best or the worst. Most of the Co-workers are cool as long as you don't get caught up in the drama. The hardest part of the Job is rotating shifts. This is really the best job if you don't have a family or single, but if you do have a family, they will suffer the most. The most enjoyable part of the job is when you finished your 8 hours or more and your walking out the door. The job really would get 5 star if they ever went straight shift.
Pros
Good pay - 24-25/hr, Really good benefits, Bonuses
Cons
(Rotating shifts) -is one of the worst things you can do for your health, too many managers, Team relations is NOT in the best interest of team members, team relations sides with management 100% of the time
