    I have been working at General Motors full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I recommend General Motors because of the Benifits they provide at no cost and the amount of hourly pay and overtime you can get. Top out after 15 years is approx. 30 dollars an hour for line workers.

    Cons

    When you first start off it is difficult to settle into one job due to seniority rights.

    Advice to Management

    Listen you your employees they actually have good ideas about stuff to increase productivity.
