      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia

      Pros

      Health insurance, pay, and air conditioning

      Cons

      Rotating shifts, no accountability, and last minute overtime notices

      Advice to Management

      Hold team members accountable for their actions. This is a business not your buddy’s shop.

      I have been working at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia full-time for more than 5 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.

      I worked at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia full-time for more than 8 years

      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.
