The place will suck the life out of your soul.
The place is a meat grinder stay away. Jobs are made for Olympic athletes don’t do it.I would recommend you try something different. Go. back to school do something you like

Stay in school and get a meaningful job.
General Motors cares about shareholders and executives only. Quality was an idea more than a practice. Management was terrible as was the union. After spending 36 yrs there, I can honestly say that it wasn't too bad of a place in the 80's and 90's, but went down hill after that.
Assembler in St. Catharines, ON

I worked on the assembly Line which is nice and easy.
Job is extremely simple but management is strict and rude. Two 15 minute breaks with a 30 minute lunch. Again very strict and can't leave the line whenever you need too. Have to call for bathroom/smoke breaks. Good overtime though.

If you want to work around the clock, this is for you
Vacation start at 2 weeks only, benefits are weak, pension is good at 11%. There are 4 4day long weekends you get. You will be forced to work 6 days a week most of the year, so life/work balance is poor. Plus you will have weekly rotating all 3 shifts.
