General Motors Layoffs

Topics regarding layoffs at General Motors

Is it our turn again?

In the last six months or so we've been alternating layoffs with Ford. They have a round, we have a round, they have a round... Rinse and repeat. So with another wave of cuts at Ford just having ended, is it our turn again?

Looks like if you've been collecting UE while still under severance payments, you may have a problem. Couple of people I'm still in contact with said they are being questioned by the UE Office.

This is not good for any of us

How is “End User Adoption” even a thing????

The cuts apparently did not go deep enough, still lots of ridiculous fat left on the bone that should have been offloaded months ago. It’s ridiculous some of the things that are left while good and valuable people were let go.

non-solicit?

I didn't get anything in my separation package regarding non-solicit's. Does anyone here know if there was one as part of our employment agreement upon accepting the job originally? Does GM put no-solicit agreements in their offers? I want to say all... read more

Break in service?

Did anyone have a break in service and was that previous service included in determining how long you received severance? This would be for US employees.

Don't let GM use you!

Why stay loyal to GM? What's the last thing this company has ever done for you? Has it given you a proper - key word proper - raise? Invested in your training? I don't think so. They used you and now they're getting ready to dump you - if they... read more

Were any H1B Visa Holders Let Go?

Let this be a lesson to all

Let this be a lesson to all, I learned years ago not to fall for this bull c-ap consumerism economy. It's expected that we all must buy 'STUFF' to keep it rolling, well that's fine but I'm not going to do it and then lose my job every 2 or 3 years!!... read more

Any concrete info on potential new layoffs?

I can never be to careful after the layoffs. I’m always anticipating a new wave and I was never in a state where I could be calm ever since. It would be helpful if I heard that no one has heard any rumors regarding layoffs in the making, although I... read more

My negative review was removed from glassdoor.

When you submit a review on Glassdoor, they must review and approve it before it is publicly available. About a week ago, I posted my negative review of GM and the post was approved. Oddly, it would not show when sorting by "Most Recent". I could... read more
