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:

  • Reduce the generation of hazardous wastes, pollutants and by-products.
  • Recycle materials whenever possible.

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.

    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at General Dynamics Land Systems (Sterling Heights, MI) in March 2018.


    Simple and broad interview. They asked questions about attitude rather than expertise. The bulk of the interview only took about 20 to 30 minutes with the rest of the hour becoming chit chat and general discussion.
