Good place overall

i worked there before the transition to the electric vehicle. however, it was still an alright job, was during covid so hours were inconsistent with intermittent layoffs. once hired full time wage is quite reasonable, work can be monotonous.

GM Family First

General Motors has a slogan of “GMFamilyFirst” which couldn’t be further from the truth. The benefit package is the worst I’ve ever heard of and doesn’t kick in for a year and a month from start date, mandatory 6 days a week with pressure to start earlier or stay late everyday. Your better to call in sick than ask for a day off, there isn’t a reason in the world which will satisfy management. Overall I wouldn’t recommend working for GM unless your okay with having no work life balance and being taken advantage of at every opportunity.

Pros

Good pay

Cons

Everything other than pay

The grass is greener...

Every place Ive worked has its pros and cons, and this place is no different. The pay is fantastic, you're out of the elements, benefits are really good. I think the worst thing has to be the over the line safety ( which overall is not a bad thing)and the legacy perspective that this place "used to be better". I truly hope this place stays open because id love to retire from here. apply, you will NOT regret it.

Pros

great money, benefits, bonus.

Cons

lots of available ot, inside all day(no sunshine for you), safety up the ying yang

Busy and repetitive

Very repetitive. You will be doing the same job constantly. Working the same muscles over and over. Alot of people would get injured. Not the best morale. They make you work almost every weekend for overtime.

Pros

Benefits and pay was ok

Cons

Repetitive. hard on your body, working weekends

It’s a job

It pays the bills. I enjoy going to work most of the time. The people kinda suck but if you can get along with people around you then you can work here.

Productive and fun

Productive and fun. Everyone seemed to have enjoyed their job, good pay and a stable working environment. Everything seemed to have the ergonomic realty going as to prevent repetition and long term problems relating to over use of your body.

It was a job

I retired in 2009 so a lot has changed with GM With the closing of GM in 2018 or 2019;they were able to remove the control of the union .Which in the long run was a good thing we have a great work force in Canada and the union should have been a lot more flexible with there trades the wages were above average at that time but pension was poor .o for one worked a lot of over time which I was never paid for .l believe they have gone to a better system now

Pros

great pay and good atmosphere

Cons

very hot in the late summer months in the plant

Amazing company with great benefits and salary

Overall, my experience was amazing at GM. Work-Life balance is taken seriously and even meetings are organized to address any issues employees are facing regarding stress.

Pros

Salary, Benefits

Cons

Some days can be stressful due to fast paced nature

Terrible Management, especially for trades. Very cut throat and vindictive fronting leaders.

When it was CAMI, place was very good, wages were competitive and work was rewarding. Since GM took 100% control place is aweful. Front line management is useless and very vindictive. Been here for 30+ years but not a place I would recommend to anybody. 3 shifts for trades and you can make better money in any place across Ontario. Just a job now!

Pros

None

Cons

Management, GM greed.

Every 30 days

Excellent working environment, safety is Paramount and they go to great lengths to train you properly. The management staff has been nothing but helpful and encouraging and always there to help.

Supportive Staff

Manager was very supportive of staff members and the work wasn’t overbearing. They were flexible and tried to accommodate staff to achieve a good work life balance. Really enjoyed my time there

Generally a good place to ride out your work life

Good place with loads of support from coworkers and supervisors as long as you show some initiative. Work-life balance is a bit of concept that is overlooked and sometimes ignored. Work is easy, and sometimes a little dull and boring. Can be fast paced at times of multiple breakdowns but generally an easy go.
