I was a technician at GM contract from 2003 to December of 2018, I lived my work and it took me a very long time to make the money I had at the end. $32.00 hourly and I deserved every penny of it, I should have been hired summer of 2018, my manager... — read more
How noticeable will a strike be at the Tech Center? Not much work in a long time for PPO. It’s disgusting to see so many shiftless people day in and day out pretty much doing nothing. Skilled trades? A lot (certainly not all) are mostly skilled at... — read more
I was in IT for 34 years (EDS, HP, GM). I am still in contact with my former co-workers and what morale was there is now completely gone. And they are so overwhelmed with the workload it is ridiculous. A staff of 12 was cut to 7 in our area. I... — read more
Is the new pickup selling well? I see a lot of advertising for it with rather large discounts, it seems like they shouldn’t have to discount a brand new vehicle so heavily. It also seems like the Silverado is consistently being beaten in sales by... — read more

I will NEVER buy a GM car again. The decisions that were made to layoff so many have changed lives forever and made those employees feel so down and taken for granted after so many years of being dedicated and hard working employees. I am sure none... — read more
At least the truth is being written. https://www.wsws.org/en/articles/2019/08/19/pers-a19.html
GM is absolutely dependent on an emotional connection or implied support obligation to sell vehicles. Not just by the current recently-disappeared professionals, but by their extended families over multiple generations. That's why GM didn't have... — read more

I wonder how much of this went on at GM under Mary Barra's "leadership"? Perhaps there will be some lawsuits soon, now that all of those laid off will have received the last of their severance pay at the end of August (We signed away our right for... — read more
Anyone out there that was let go in February, have funds in their dependent account. We put away funds for the kids camps etc during the summer, of course you need to sign up for that in the previous October. Well, now I'm told, I can't make any... — read more
Cannot continue like this any more. The debt bubble is about to burst. See the stats: https://wolfstreet.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/US-consumer-credit-auto-2019-Q2.png
Per a friend who is close to the numbers, GM Financial has lower earnings year over year despite having a larger balance sheet and is way below their MTP budget. Layoffs could very well happen there this year.
GM is a lost cause, Poor poor management , this CEO and CFO need to go away. What the cancellation of a new GMC that has been in the works, why do they continue to cancel new products to compete? Excuse, we need to save money! What!?!?!? So all... — read more
Heard MI IT will be hit hard next round. Jobs to shifted to either Austin, Dublin, or Bangalore. If yes, when is this supposed to happen?
So, does anyone think GM is still, or is ever going to be, the Workplace of Choice? I wonder if they’ll ever conduct that survey again.
Thanks GM for absolutely destroying our city of Pontiac, all the plants are gone, everything gone. GPS was newer B building and all that will remain is the race wing and what's left of the Dyno labs. Thanks to the UAW and all the consessions from... — read more
Had my cap today, worst one I have ever had, especially as my end of year 2018 was really good. Hearing from different departments they are focusing on negative issues a lot and not mentioning any positives, to make future dismissals easier due to... — read more
In the article on Click on Detroit about the Warren Transmission plant closing, it states that GM said it employed 262 UAW members at the plant. The salaried employees at the plant are not even mentioned.
I have heard late August- early September. More IT and def corporate people (finance, lawyers etc) will be hit hard. Not sure about engineers (I was laid off in February but have have job since) Can anybody confirm this? If its true, anybody... — read more
Considering everything is there anyway, maybe that's the plan? Since they all about consolidation.
A month, how much for a family? I was quoted $900 a month outside of GM. What do you guys pay a month?
And cutting down people in Warren. GM has left IT in Randy’s hand and he is taking IT out of Detroit piece by piece. Ireland, why? Contrary to this Ford has its IT centrally and strategically in Dearborn for ever. What do we get in Ireland that we... — read more
Any new rumors?
Enough with the high belt lines and technology that nobody wants and doesn’t work very well. Take the entertainment system in my 2018 Traverse - you need a PhD to figure it out! In a Honda Odyssey - it “just works”. Quit investing in self driving... — read more
