General Dynamics Land Systems – Why Work For Us?


General Dynamics Land Systems is a business unit of General Dynamics Combat Systems group – a global leader in the design, development, production, support and enhancement of tracked and wheeled military vehicles for the United States and its allies.

We have a strong foundation of delivering core engineering and production capabilities to our clients across the military vehicle spectrum. Our team is focused on continuous process and productivity improvements that reduce product costs, while increasing troop safety and effectiveness.

At the heart of Land Systems’ military-vehicle platforms is the Abrams main battle tank and the family of Stryker and LAV wheeled combat vehicles. These key ground-force assets remain critical to the military’s structure and offer continuing opportunities for modernization and enhancements to meet the Warfighter’s evolving requirements. General Dynamics Land Systems - Force Protection gives our clients even more strength and innovation on their side with the MRAP family of vehicles and the Ocelot. Land Systems continues to work with its clients to ensure these vehicles remain survivable, relevant, flexible, affordable and capable of addressing a dynamic threat environment..

General Dynamics Land Systems (GDLS) is committed to protecting human health, natural resources and the environment while promoting and maintaining safe workplaces and practices for our employees, customers, suppliers, visitors and other stakeholders.

We all have a shared responsibility to identify activities that present significant environmental, health or safety (EHS) risk, and to take corrective/preventive action in an effort to eliminate potential environmental impacts and safety risks.

We will develop strategic initiatives and processes that support this commitment to continually improve, and at a minimum:

  • Frequently assess the potential environmental impacts and safety risks of operations, processes and products.
  • Implement proactive policies and procedures to comply with applicable environmental, health and safety legislation and regulations and other requirements to which the company subscribes.
  • Reduce work-related injuries and ill health.
  • Conserve natural resources.
  • Reduce the use of hazardous materials.
  • Reduce the generation of hazardous wastes, pollutants and by-products.
  • Recycle materials whenever possible.
  • Implement appropriate technologies for prevention of pollution and the control of pollutants that cannot be eliminated.

The foundation for our EHS program is training, participation and empowerment. We all share the responsibility for following established policies and procedures identifying and reporting potential EHS concerns, maintaining relevant documents, and knowing the emergency contacts, procedures, and evacuation plans at our respective facilities.

As a team, we are committed to a culture that protects the health and safety of each other and preserves the environment for future generations.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at General Dynamics Land Systems (London, ON (Canada)) in July 2015.


    Preliminary interview by phone. Mostly cursory general questions. Lasted about 20 minutes. Subsequently, success would go on to a personal interview. This is a panel of 3, the hiring manager, a supervisor, and an analyst. Lasted more than an hour. Most probably 75 minutes.
