Working at general motors was difficult, but it paid for the life I have now. I made great friends while working there that I am still friends with today. It was a great job.

All took a pay cut to save GM. Shortly after, all upper management reinstated their pay, and that’s where it ended. Great people work there, but upper management dismiss everyone below, even when they initiate innovative, cost effective and production saving ideals. I personally saved GM countless $ and down time hours, with one change to the clamp trucks, but not even a thank you.

working at General Motors is comfortable , you are not worried about
the supervisor they are friendly. You make your own work scheudue.

Flixable hours and lot of fun.But one thing I learnd from this company

is that as a human being no matter what you do you can not get everybody to like you. There will always be people who will hate you.

Over the 30 years of working for General Motors I had lots of opportunity to meet lots of great people and learn new skills. I worked as a team and individually. I was picked frequently to train other employees on many different jobs on the line and on forklift. Management always treated me with respect and I treated them the same.
Pros
Great salary and benefits.
Cons
Long commute to and from work.

A fast paced work environment, where we all had to work together.
Time management was most important.I have worked with some great people who have different interests and opinions which has made me a more versatile person.The hardest part of the job was making split second decisions that could have impacted productivity and time restraints. The best part was seeing my efforts come to fruiton.
Pros
great career with many perks
Cons
excessive heat and noise
