    Pros

    Good starting salary. Assembly work is easy to learn.

    Cons

    Priority is given to full time employees. Hours will be cut at no notice at all. Happenings at the factory is spread informally through the vine so temps are usually left clueless unless they seek information themselves.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair and give decent notice to temps who get their hours cut drastically so they can find another job to supplement the reduced pay.

    Pros

    There are good opportunities as an Salaried GM employee with good benefits.

    Cons

    The oppprtunities as a Black Salaried employee at GM are not good. Black salaried employees at GM are given low end jobs with no means of advancement. We are given low paying jobs and remain in these jobs for the majoirity of employment at GM. Racial relations at GM are poor. Blacks are viewed more so as manual employees with little to no intelligence. Black salaried employees are treated unfair at GM.

    Advice to Management

    To treat ALL employees fairly, regardless of race.

    I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    good medical, dental and vision insurance, union representation, the job is super easy and could be done by anyone. Also the monetary compensation is great!

    Cons

    The supervision has a huge problem with having nothing better to do than to babysit their workers. The job is too easy and monotonous that it becomes very boring, very quickly.

    Advice to Management

    management needs to leave the workers alone, they know how to do the job better than you, and will do said job even if you are nowhere around
