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

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
