    Great benefits package, health insurance and 401K. Company lease and purchase programs are a nice perk too

    Kia Motors America provides an excellent benefit package to its team members. Health and dental insurance is second to none in terms of coverage with no employee financial contribution for premiums. Reasonable company matching contribution to the 401K program. Paid time off and sick days are provided and you will certainly need every one of those day because you are expected to work long hours and have an imbalance in your work-life time. Challenging environment to function within however over achievers and high performers are rewarded...those that are not, not.

    For contractor : No paid holidays, No overtime money, No raise even after 1 year , No heads up about the end of project, They don't attend the call when you need some direction or information from them but they keep calling you to submit hours on time.
