Amazing place to be
Sales Professional (Current Employee), Huntsville, ALNovember 21, 2014
Pros: great atmosphere
Cons: hours
I have been able to deal with many of my flaws here at KIA. Working here is like wrestling, it is not a place where you can blame others for your mistakes. You have to live with the decisions you make because it could effect someone’s family, someone’s livelihood.

enjoying my job along with my co workers
Assembly Line Worker (Current Employee), West Point, GAOctober 8, 2013
I work inside of cars in the paint department. And I have learned to do my job successfully. The management is great and my co workers are fun to be around. The hardest part of my job is dealing with the heat inside of the cars. And the most enjoyable part of my job is conversing with my co workers while getting the job done successfully.

No future if you're not a politician
Specialist (Current Employee), West Point, GASeptember 13, 2013
Pros: company benefits, good people overall
Cons: managers and assistant managers only interested in their careers
Very good company with great benefits. Company upper management tries to do the right thing.

Poor middle management more interested in personal empire building than the success of the team. Can't move up unless you're a member of the Mercedes Mafia (where most management came from).

Lots of politics in Specialist, Assistant Manager and Manager levels throughout the organization.

terrible place to work
production team members (Current Employee), west point gaSeptember 12, 2012
Pros: good pay
Cons: short breaks no weekends off rotating shifts
This is the worst place i have ever worked. I been at kia motors for 2 and half years and would not recommend this job to anyone if you want to see your family and have a life. The management treats its employees bad. The hours are terrible.

Pros: your coworkers becomes your family

KMMG was one of the most rewarding job i ever had, i get to travelled to Asia on multiple occasions and i love the people i used to work with. I learned a great deal about work ethics and paying attention to details. the hardest part of the job was having to work seven day a week on certain occasion, but the pay checks was never disappointing. it was always a joy whenever i see finished product that i started working on from scratch.

Productive and very fun place to work with onsite gym and personal trainer
Business Systems -Call Center Analyst (Former Employee), Irvine, CAAugust 7, 2012
Pros: many employee/family activities, gym and personal trainer
Cons: high stress for management
This is a great place to work. The company values their employees on a very high level and provides many employee activities, gym, and most of all a great working environment. The employee culture is almost family like. Everyone I met and worked directly or indirectly with was always friendly and willing to help to get the job done. I was given the opportunity to lear the Korean culture to better understand the company roots, Korean employees and visitors.

Very productive plant but alot of unfairness and abuse of power
Quality Control (Former Employee), West Point, GeorgiaAugust 1, 2012
Certain supervisor show racial behavior toward there employees. Alot of favortism going on and not a fairjob opportuinities there. The Human Resource group are more concern with the well being of the company than what is truly going on within the plant and it's workers. It really needs to be investigated for there racial acts and unfairness toward the black works.

Same job advertised over and over
Paralegal (Former Employee), Irvine, CAMay 29, 2012
There is a paralegal job that has been advertised over and over and over again since July 2011. It has been filled at least one time and I'm guessing has been filled 2-3 times in less than a year. What does that tell you?

Hard-driven, Long hours
2nd Shift Logistics Supervisor (Former Employee), West Point, La Grange Area (South Ga.)March 13, 2012
Pros: long hours = better pay checks
Cons: 12 hour days, 1 hr from home, high gas prices
Supervised 18 employess in a "just in time", "just in sequence" environment. Demanding. If someone was out, down time was emmiment at $300.00 per minute. Threat of losing my job daily. Very Demanding - and yet very rewarding to maintain my job.
