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.
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) – Rochester, NY – July 19, 2018
Seems like a lovely environment at first until you realize it is another "Good ole boys club" and if you just want to do your job and go home they will literally single you out. The hours can be almost abusive and they will use insane company policies as an excuse to corner you or even get rid of you if you don't fit in their club. The union isn't the worst part, it's the management. Great people working for you as well. I will miss my team.
Junior ABAP Developer (Current Employee) – Chandler, AZ – July 19, 2018
The people in the building are amazing individuals that have awesome talent. Everyone is looking to have a good time, while still focusing on the work at hand. It is a great place to make new friends and future connections.
Dress Code, benefits
Have to pay for everything yourself, never a company paid meal
Manufacturing Engineering Manager (Former Employee) – Kansas City, KS – July 18, 2018
General Motors was a great place to be employed.
During my time at General Motors the Plant Manager had a lot of control and power. That person had the full responsibility of the plant. Depending upon the organization which one worked, depended upon the Plant Manager poole. One could work for one organization today, and another organization the following day.
Developer (Former Employee) – Austin, TX – July 17, 2018
They have every 2 years employee feed back surveys . The last two were not what they wante and they have not addressed any issues. Employee engagements is low. Training is really bad Moving people to new projects and expecting they learne the new code in very short turn around time. They have this cult like philosophy called Drive To Great it is a cross between dyanetics and the process church of the final judgment. Or Anthony Robins. Dangerous thinking and they build cars .
Team Leader (Former Employee) – Spring Hill, TN – July 15, 2018
Assembly Line work / Not for everyone I learned managerial skills / computer skills / Team building skills Great management team Team environment Assemble Line work Team environment and dinners / met some awesome people
Business culture heavy. Development and innovation take a back seat to deadlines. Leadership consistently over-promises deliverables to business partners without first consulting development teams. Look for an actual tech company if you want to work somewhere that is open to using new technologies and methodologies.
Strategic Execution Industrial Engineer (Current Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – July 11, 2018
The roles and responsibilities are executed in a well planned manner for efficient work. I learned the importance of planning and execution in the plant and the production standards. Management strived for greater output and achieved it by following the company motto.
Elected Union Representative (Current Employee) – Kansas City, KS – July 11, 2018
Good money, miserable life. The people and environment are very immature. It has a high population of low education, and those are the people that create the most issues. Work hard or find another job, if the foundation on the floor.
ONSTAR QUALITY ASSURANCE ANALYST (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – July 9, 2018
The company has stood the test of time and allows for employees to discover what they love about themselves through their work experience. A very diverse work environment is always a plus and that is what they provided.
