As a current owner of a 2018 Chevy Impala LT with the 3.6L V6, it’s been the most trouble free and reliable car I’ve ever owned. I just want to thank the men and woman who built these cars as they are very under appreciated and valued in the market... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at General Motors
I find our management funny when they try to convince us that the situation in the company is much better than it actually is. Almost all of us see how things stand, but they try in various ways to convince us that they have everything under control... — read more
GM is trying to change its corporate culture. Please HR/leaders note that the old tyrannical culture will be there despite of all efforts as long as you allow the continuously low performing managers to stay in their positions. Why is GM still not a... — read more
Counting days to my retirement. I couldn't stand it here for a few more years. There were both good and bad things, but overall, if I could choose again, I would never spend most of my career here. I think I could have done a lot more had I been in... — read more
I don't understand people who have built a long career here and are about to retire and have no or very little experience from another company??? It must be that this company was very different in the past or some people are simply loyal in spite... — read more
I heard they helped clean house...if you're not with them you'll be left behind. What does that mean if the leaders are corrupt?
I was very proud when I first came to GM, but the idealized image of this company quickly disappeared. No matter what, I always try to find hundred reasons why GM is better than the competition, but unfortunately, in many things the competition... — read more
Just by looking at our products it is clear how disoriented this company really is. Most of us don’t want to admit it, but our products have been a failure lately. The worst thing is that their quality is questionable. Just my two cents. When did... — read more
What are some examples of racism at GM at the hands of Mary Barra or through racist policies?
I haven’t been at GM for a long time but almost everyone tells me to learn what I can and start looking for another company. I’ve tried, but I can’t say I’ve expanded my skillset much. I’m no longer learning in my current role. I’m still excited... — read more
Does not include spreading rumors, creating a toxic atmosphere, excluding individuals.
It's been exactly a year since the big pandemic furlough of 2020. I'm curious whether all of those affected returned to work since then or did the company use the opportunity to cut some of them without anybody noticing? I'm betting at least some got... — read more
GM is ONLY good at growing talented individuals, into talented individuals that eventually end up working elsewhere. This is so true. GM knows how to grow talented individuals, but it doesn’t know how to keep them. Employees with high potential... — read more
I haven’t found another option but I still don't want to worry about what will happen when a new round of layoffs starts. Many of my colleagues were able to find another job, so I guess I will too. I worried too much but realized it didn’t make... — read more
I wonder what you think, was there any way to avoid layoffs at GM or at least keep their numbers lower? (and at the same time keep those at the top satisfied)
Did this guy seriously leave GM to work for the supplier that had an unusually tight and costly grip on the lab. I remember hearing about the gentleman's deals and seeing the bullying that ensued if anybody threatened the contract. New GM same as... — read more
Or is it? :D Thoughts?
I feel really worried when I see the news of GM facilities closing due to global chip shortage. The situation is obviously worsening and I wonder if the damage will eventually be greater than... — read more
General Motors has laid off roughly 170 employees from the GM Flint Engine Operations facility in Flint, Michigan, per a new report. According to local CBS news affiliate WNEM, the layoffs at the General Motors facility were the result of a supply... — read more
If employees are moved from TX to NC for example, what is the relocation assistance/package looks like?
I had 20 years of service to GM. They will EFF you over every chance possible, from the position you inquire about, and the HR reps that toss your resume in the trash. They claim professional grade, yet act nothing like. I won’t go into my own... — read more
This car is a total junk pile, from it's cheap interior to all the electrical and mechanical issues associated with it. Change the CEO and managers that approve this junk. American icon died with C7
Hello, I have BSME and 6 years exp making 91k total including bonus at a tier supplier. I am interested in applying at GM. Will i get i get a better offer at GM or very similiar to current salary? I saw that the salary share thread here but... — read more
I really can't believe it.. we were all worried when the pandemic hit that there might be layoffs but nope, instead we get flexible schedules, endless WFH and now full bonus. Don't have to worry for a second about being let go as there's more work... — read more
I wonder every day. Most buildings are still ghost towns. Lots of equipment and machinery sitting idle and rotting away. Majority working from home. Record earnings in the billions, but the Facilities “Professionals” won’t let you spend for... — read more
This is simply not possible with the current product plans in place, unless bankruptcy #2 is desired.
This is my take why I never want to work for the big auto companies. I’d bail on GM (and the big three) if a chance arrived, unless I worked in the truck department which has some stability. Someone once said to me in 2008, “guess why GM is going... — read more
Seriously, did nobody think this through? I did a double take when I saw it and it took me a few seconds to realize that no, GM was not inviting everybody to get infected. I mean, really... — read more
Bloomberg published an article about Apple's plans to build an electric, self-driving car in the next four years. Reportedly, in the process of building vehicles, they would rely on a manufacturing partner. It is still unknown who would assemble an... — read more
Settled into a new job away from GM. It’s awesome to actually be eager to go to work. I will never miss: The inability of higher ups to make timely decisions The discouragement of differing views The always present negative atmosphere The... — read more
Since about July of 19, I've applied to jobs at GM that 80 to 100% match my original assignment at GM. Closest I got was an automated, pc based interview. Twice a recruiter has said I was a shoe-in to get a hiring manager review, only to be... — read more
