Group Leader (Production Supervisor) (Former Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 20 March 2017
The people you will work there are great on the front lines. The employees are fantastic as are most of the management staff. The biggest problem is the constant 7 days a week work week. While the pay is great everything else suffers and not many willing participants to come and assist you and take some OT for you.

GM Pace Project (Current Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 6 July 2016
currently, I am working on a project that is the part of GM PACE competition. It has been a great opportunity to work under the guidance of professors and employees from GM. Whenever my team has any problem they helped us a lot. With their support, we are able to achieve the top ten position in this competition and hoping to win this.
Driver (Current Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 6 July 2016
A typical day is to begin your shift at 6:30am with driving and testing vehicles till 2:30pm when your shift is over. My co-workers were great to work with as well as management for the most part. Hardest part of the job would be the repetitive nature of factory work. Other than that it was good.
IT Incident Analyst (Current Employee) – Ingersoll, ON – 13 July 2016
The people and atmosphere are great. They are very accommodating and easy to work with. I learned so very much and took so many courses. My co--workers were a pleasure to work with. The most enjoyable part of the job was the friendliness of everyone I came across.
You're just a number but the Pay more than makes up for it
Project Technical Lead (Former Employee) – Warren, ON – 30 May 2016
You're just a number but the Pay more than makes up for it..
A lot of Political infighting... I worked well with the Union... Management hated the UNION, I got along with them very well and was able to accomplish a lot.,.. Union gets a bad rap.. too bad because the UNION does great work..

CONVERSIONS STAFF (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 7 July 2016
The General Motors Centre not GM. Just a bad place to work, no room to move up and very little hours. Management will lay you off without any notice, no breaks and poor paid. Management picks who will move up.
Machine Tool Setter (Current Employee) – St. Catharines, ON – 14 April 2016
Contract will be a pivotal time at this plant. the people are good to work with, direct supervisors are good to work with. machining lines, assembly lines, none of the jobs i've encountered are overly physical or laborious. too bad management is looking to reduce their costs by contracting out our jobs to the lowest bidder. Eventually they will pull of Canada all together....
flexible with time off in my department
supplemental work force employee = temp = second class citizen
Lighting Program Manager Engineer (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 17 May 2016
Great team to work with and the management was very talented at getting the best from their people. The GM systems are rather complex and sometimes cumbersome but quite effective regarding global communication for a large corporation.
Assembly Line Worker (Former Employee) – Oshawa, ON – 16 May 2016
Worked in truck plant for two summers and enjoyed every minute of it. I wish i could have become a full time employee. Wage and benefits package are excellent. The co workers and shifts were very easy to incorporate in to my life.
