    I have been working at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia

    Pros

    Good pay with great health benefits and bonuses.

    Cons

    Rotating shifts are the worst. Every 30 days.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees who work on the line and not the upper management.

    I have been working at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefit is great for sure, but other companies offer great benefit too. Food is fairly good and people are usually nice.

    Cons

    They offer certain number of vacation days, but it's difficult to have vacation when you want it. Usually, the upper management will decide if you can use your vacation on a specific time of the year. After giving a two-month notice about my vacation, I still felt like I was pressured to use my vacation earlier in the year. What's the point of giving vacation days if the upper management gets involved on this? I...

    Advice to Management

    Leaders lead by examples, not by authority. One of the managerial roles is to protect their employees, but not really have experienced that. We are not just a number of this company. If and only if KMMG values their employees, people will stay longer.

    Thank you for your comments. Since each Team Member is important to our daily production, it is difficult to provide extensive time off in a manufacturing environment. We understand this is challenging work! Because our Team Members are our most important asset, we provide scheduled ...

    I have been working at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia

    Pros

    the pay is better than average, great benefits, and is close in proximity to a ton of recreational parks including west point lake

    Cons

    long hours are a drag, the assembly line process will have you on your feet all day, koreans make up a majority of management

    Advice to Management

    hire more local people, diversify your resume (majors) to make sure you acquire more well rounded employees, dont be so secretive

    I have been working at Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia

    Pros

    Great benefits and above average pay.

    Cons

    If you take personal days for ANYTHING you will be denied your regular raise. I am not exaggerating this if your child is sick and you call in one time or are late, you will have a "documented event" put in your file. Also most departments are seriously understaffed and employees are expected to do more work than one person can possibly complete SAFELY in a timely fashion. Equipment is horribly maintained and is very...

    Advice to Management

    Allow more flexibility for time off. Quit replacing Kia employees with lower wage people from Mallone staffing (they really don't care about quality) go to a fixed schedule. Hire enough people to do the job, and quit being so cheap! FIX BROKEN CARTS AND EQUIPTMENT!!! Someone is going to get killed
