    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

    Pros

    The pay is very good, Benefits,Overtime is Always Available, Paid holidays, They pay for your school.

    Cons

    You get hired in as a temp. You never know when they will make you a regular employee. Everything is based on seniority. This is not the place for you if you have a family. You do not get to choose your shift. You never know if you are working 8, 10 or 12 hours.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your workers with respect

    Pros

    Fantastic pay, benefits, an Union. Plus Union discounts. Free gym, computer lab, and wifi. There's a subway in the shop and a few fast food chains near by, security and safety are fantastic.

    Cons

    Allot of moving vehicles (hi lows, tuggers, golf carts) watch where you're going. Be carful around moving assembly lines, it gets pretty hot in the summer and cold in the winter, dress appropriate for work and the weather.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the training short, simple, and hands on.

    Pros

    GM allowed me to provide for my family. It allowed me to be on stable shift. Which allowed me to go to school and better myself.

    Cons

    sinetimes the work life balance leans more towards the work life. But it's what is expected of working in a warehose.

    Advice to Management

    Continued communication with employees. Safety is an overriding priority. Keeping employees up to date on the current status of the company allows employees to have a clear understanding of the company as a whole.

    Pros

    Great job if you can get it. Union position with great pay and benefits.Top of the line technology and training for the right person.

    Cons

    Difficult to get hired at a General Motors Plant. The combining of trades could be considered a pro or a con. At most plants there are now only two trades, electrical and mechanical.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management is to utilize the many years of experience that the different tradesman that they employ have accumulated over the years.
