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.

I was very young when I was a temporary employee for General Motors. I came in during Deer Season. I learned how vehicles were made and I also was able to learn Quality Control and Inspection. I was very saddened that the plant was closed down.
Production Supervisor/Group Leader (Former Employee) – Lordstown, OH – September 20, 2018
The place is falling apart and needs upgraded asap. Needs to be fixed and upgraded so that a new product can come in and run. The CEO has made it clear she doesn't care for her employees at this facility and the jobs of that are being lost. She needs to visit this plant and give a face to face on why she's making top dollar while people are losing their jobs.
Forklift Operator (Clamp & Sit down) (Former Employee) – Grand Prairie, TX – September 20, 2018
Management doesn't care about anyone, hr hires friends and family so they all sit in the office and do nothing and majority of the supervisors don't do anything but go to the office and talk and hang out most enjoyable part of the job is when I got to be team lead

operations technician (Current Employee) – Spring Hill, TN – September 17, 2018
there's a bad culture of bullying and harassment. Management and the UAW work together to get rid of anyone who questions the status quo. The union will constantly lie about everything to trick people into signing a contract that hurts employees and only benefits stockholders, which the UAW is a stockholder.
flexible timing, work within and outside the company. Excellent vision, and excellent team working environment.

General Assembly (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – September 15, 2018
During my time at this establishment I was a temporary employee. Temps are treated rather unfairly in comparison to hired-in employees. No time off, no sick days, but pay is not bad. Benefits for hired in employees are excellent however. Only trick is getting hired in. I was a temp for over a year
Several leaders have made the group very unpleasant
Lead Siebel Developer/Architect (Current Employee) – Atlanta, GA – September 13, 2018
The company as a whole is a good company. Unfortunately, the CRM group is lead by folks who have NO BUSINESS in management. They are clueless when it comes to leadership skills. Most worked together before GM and have formed relationships that cause them to overlook the deficiencies that are so prevalent.
Compensation is pretty good
Lack of true leadership, chaos is rampant among teams
inspection and sanitation (production worker) (Former Employee) – Flint, MI – September 13, 2018
I performed the same duties everyday unless someone was absent and I filled in for there job. You meet a lot of different people from all walks of life which can be interesting and a good learning experience. Management was easy to get along with if you did your job. I never had a problem with management.
In general company is fairly old school with lot of bureaucracy. Software development is not the main focus of the company so it sometimes takes a backseat to business needs. Many levels of hierarchy make it difficult to advance. Many that don't understand the actual specifics of software development
