    Their benefit package is one of the best in the auto industry, you start receiving on day one of employment, and are fully vested after 5 years.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current assembly in Flint, Michigan

    GM will pay for your health insurance while you are a temp, but it's not very good. It's barely better than catastrophic insurance. They do not offer vision or dental to temps.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Employee in Kansas City, Kansas

    Health insurance is cheap, vacation is accrued quickly, 401k (they give you 8% and you contribute 4%).

  • Aug 14, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former General Assembly in Spring Hill, Tennessee

    Employees have little say. The union does not truly take into consideration what the employees need in my opinion. A flexible spending account, an HSA or self directed benefits would be a great asset to the employees and potentially cost saving for the employer

  • Aug 24, 2018
    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Detroit, Michigan

    Very standard package as of big companies. But nothing surprising and not other bonuses.
