General Motors...Janesville, WI {No longer an operating plant}.

Production (Former Employee)
Janesville, WI

I worked at General Motors full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThe pay was great. GM's supervisors/management {for the most part} were good leaders & advocates for their department's workers. Time off on "shut down" a.k.a. "change over"...was a great perk {2 weeks paid time-off over Xmas & New Years}. Overall a good company to work for.

ConsThe hours & monotony suck the life out of you! Mandatory 10-12 hour days doing the same tasks day-in-day-out. Second shift typically ran from 3pm-3am {not a great schedule for parents}, The plant closed down in WI.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue your valued efforts as advocates and accessible leaders of your department's workers, it's great for employee morale.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
