The fact that a guy can verbally abuse, threaten, and even push another employee but because there’s allies to protect him the victim has to undergo a lot of personal stress and deal with it all on their own! Choose your cohorts wisely because one way or another you’ll pay for it. Everybody knows somebody if you don’t know anybody. They will leave you in the dark as a means to an end. Educate yourself on your personal rights and document everything and seek legal advice.

After you complete the online assessment (AND assuming you score well enough), you will be called in for a hands on skills assessment. After that, you will be told that you will be contacted between 1 and 6 weeks. It appears as though you have to have your phone strapped to your head 24/7 as I received a call about 5 weeks later and they left a message to call to set up a drug screen. I called them back 8 times and left two messages ONLY to find out the next morning that they filled all of the drug screen slots. I felt this was unfair and that I and every other person who they couldn't speak with should have been given 24 hours before anyone else was allowed to take my spot. The lady then tells me that "if/when more positions open up, I will get another call". Well, I saw on Facebook today that GM Flint Assembly is hiring AND I received no call. This part of the hiring process is farmed out to some company in Nevada.

My experience is no. I successfully interviewed and was hired for the Lease End Experience position on October 1st, 2018. On October 3rd, 2018 I was contacted to complete CareerBuilder's Background Check Application and to drug test. I completed both on that same day. I was to start my position on October 22, 2018. I waited and waited to hear back from GM Financial as a final email was to be sent to give direction for the first day I was to start. On October 17th I sent an email to find out what was going on and got no response. After waiting 24 hours I sent a 2nd email to the recruiter who did my initial phone interview to find out what was going on. She called me within the hour and told me, over the phone less than 5 days before my start date they had recinded my offer due to a possession charge from 2015. No understand NOWHERE in the background check questionnaire do they ask if you have had any prior arrests or give you a chance to explain. In my case I had already completed all requirements of the court and had been successfully discharged from probation early had received deferred adjudification for the charge. My advise to anyone with any type of criminal record to proceed with caution. The greatest disappointment to me was that I had to hunt them down to find out I wasn't going to be hired. After such a good experience interviewing and seeing the company and everything I read about GM Financial I am extremely disappointed.
