IT (Current Employee), Atlanta, GA – July 31, 2014
Pros: vacation, matching 401k, flexible work hours
Cons: low pay, unprofessional attitudes, poor work environment
They have no clue what they are doing in SAP. The new IT people are left out of key decisons even though they are the most experienced and knowledgeable. Too many people who do not know what they are doing and they will stab you in the back if you say they are wrong. Good luck with trying to implement best practices as there is no interest in changing – more... anything. They adhere to a ridiculous amount of policies that are not necessary. Lack of access in SAP is the norm because the idiot who runs support will fight you on access you need to do your job. If you enjoy stress and frustration then join up now! – less

UAW Production Worker (Former Employee), West Mifflin, PA – July 25, 2014
Pros: healthcare, job security, salary
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work with General Motors was very routine. I learned much from General Motors. I learned to change out 30+ton dyes for daily operations. I learned to be part of a production team to accomplish the days stock requirement. Co-workers were considerate of each others space and job. The warehouse policies and procedures were very strict – more... for production and safety purposes. Mangement maintained a professional working relationship with union presence. The hardest part of my job was adjusting to the weight of each object that came down the belt when a new job began. The most enjoyable part of the job was learning how to do the different types of jobs that are done each day. – less
Production Team Member (Current Employee), Lordstown, OH – July 12, 2014
Pros: consistant hours. lots of overtime available
Cons: no benefits/health insurance or job security
I worked 2nd Shift in Production/Car frame assembly. Everyday I came in 20 minutes early. Got my work gear ready, made sure to sign up for overtime for the week then replace the 1st shift employee on the job. The job was basically assembling different parts of the car frame and doing quality & safety inspections along the production line. I worked anywhere – more... from 8-12 hours a day and worked thru breaks & lunches for the extra overtime. Worked mostly Monday-Saturday, sometimes only Monday-Friday. I learned alot about the car manufacturing industry, the in's-out's of the union (UAW Local 1714) and the importance of safety in the work environment. Management was very easy to work & get along with. Co-workers were friendly and outgoing for the most part. The hardest part of the job was being kept on "Temp" status for the last year so the company doesn't have to pay myself and others benefits, bonuses and health insurance. Also, having to constantly worry about job security because "Temps" can be laid-off at anytime; which I am now. – less

Picking parts for prototype vehicles. There is always something new to learn everyday and my co-workers are very knowledgeable and team orientated. The hardest part of the job is going home at the end of the day because it is a very nice place to work because of the atmosphere that was developed by management and the team I work for.
