Now it takes awhile to achieve full rate , but once achieved, the wages and benefits are among the best in a factory setting. Not really a lot of room for advancement in production, so choose production or supervision prior to application.
Pros
Unionized, Wages/benefits
Cons
Long grow in

GM allowed their employees ample opportunity to further their education and provided outstanding compensation. I would work for GM again If the opportunity was available.
Pros
If you took courses and passed GM would pay for it.
Cons
There were some managers that were more concerned with how they were perceived, rather than what was good for the company

Been with the company for just over 3 years and I am will considered as TPT. I enjoy doing the work. I have no benefits or any monetary increases. You are expected to complete all tasks as a senior employee without any benefits.

Overall the job pays well with good benefits.On the downside the work is very boring and time seems to stand still.lf these jobs paid less the turn over rate would be very high.That being said l have lasted 30 years there and provided a good life for my family and can now look forward to a pension to carry me into my golden years.

Senior employees and union sold out new poeple. Temps (TPT's) are treated poorly by both management and senior employees. Could work for years before getting hired then 10 years before you reach full wage. Poor benefits as well. Used to be everyone wanted to work there and stayed. TPT's come and go because of low wages, benefits and being treated poorly.

A lot of long hours every week day with some overtime but I had great workers on my line. The money was very good and it was nice to have the shift work so I knew when I was working and could plan around my shifts

Overall good experience but I would jot recommend anyone to work there, it’s very stressful and very fast paced, which is fine if you have understanding management, however the management was very rude almost like they were power tripping because they felt superior to you. The pay was decent and they had good benefits in place. Just not enough to make a career out of unless you don’t mind verbal abuse

If you like bullying and being intimidated at all positions this is the place for you. Salary was good, but not for the hostile atmosphere that you are required to work in

Working at General Motors on the management side can be very stressful and demanding at times. Not only are you responsible for monitoring and maintaining the productivity of your team but also the quality of the product leaving your area. There's a natural clash between management and union members, but this on-going struggle coupled with various personal issues many union members may be facing can create a difficult work environment. Finding a way to effectively lead each individual, as well as your entire team, can be tricky. When you're able to establish those working relationships and identify strategies to help everyone be successful, that's when you excel. The management team is great - very knowledgeable, helpful and reliable. Most would say the most rewarding aspects of the job would be watching the final products drive off the line, but I personally see more value in helping team members (union and salary) improve their overall body of work and better themselves both personally and professionally.

I worked at the Oshawa plant. everyone was friendly, lots of opportunity to learn new things and gain new insights. 10/10 recommend. Also a pay you can actually live off of (outside of toronto).

The job itself was actually quite fun and has a lot of potential to become something worthwhile, due to the closure the atmosphere is completely demolished. Everyone there is bitter and sometimes quite rude. Some of the team leaders are quite alright though most of them are very belittling if you're trying to learn something new and make mistakes. There is almost no room for error and they throw you right into the wolves. You must learn fast and adapt faster. Unless you are a full-time worker you essentially get no benefits and to become full-time you have to be working there for a minimum of 4 years and be on a waiting list. Overall the job itself was fun but lack of leadership and guidance may not be worth it depending on the individual. The hours are 40 guaranteed every week but it's a day shift (6:00am-2:00pm) for two weeks then an afternoon shift (2:00pm-10:00pm) for two weeks

Overall satisfactory, however wasn't enough understanding between management and hourly employees. Needed more communication lack of understanding between the two. Lack of understanding of what jobs actually involve. Need more hands on from salary personnel.

Good experience and intro into the Automotive industry. Pay is fair but a lot of hours and overtime. Enjoyed working with the engineering team and management. Can be stressful when working on the Assembly line.
