    I have been working at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Overall great company, good pay, excellent benefits, and cheapest insurance (good insurance) premiums in the state. Plenty of holidays and paid time off throughout the year.

    Cons

    Too much change going on with team members leaving, hiring freeze, and management lacking the ability to focus on REAL issues with production and instead more worried about manipulating internal data to make the Korean/CEO happy. Always a problem. Makes you feel like you’re doing excessive redundant work just to please management and not actually focusing on the problem. With so many people continuing to leave for better...

    Advice to Management

    Korean management should work to improve American management and work to blend the cultures better like Honda and mainly Toyota has done so well with.

    Pros

    Good pay benefits great way to get experience in many areas such as stamping welding and maintenance. They have great training programs as well.

    Cons

    Rotating shifts are absolutely horrible. The work can be extreme. You will work three shifts that rotate every four weeks. Strenuous on your family and social life.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to get rid of the rotating shifts nobody enjoys it! That is the #1 reason people leave and are unhappy

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are cheap for 90/10 coverage. I pay $30 a month total for Health, Dental, and Vision

    Cons

    Pay is bad unless you negotiate and come in high. No promotions. Standard 2% raise.

    Advice to Management

    Actively retain your current talent. I have heard Senior Management say everyone can be replaced, but that logic is costing your company money and resources.

        Pros

        Good benefits, pay is ok. Time off is sufficient. Quarterly bonuses and attendance incentives. Co workers are helpful and kind.

        Cons

        Management needs serious training, no people skills and not much of any other skills either. Management walks around like they are kings and everyone else are peasants.

        Advice to Management

        Get your management some training, maybe then you wouldn't have so much turnover.
