Sounds very close to what tesla did... Asked to return or quit now. Later did 10% layoff... I mean I can't think a single rational reason why GM wants return to work for everyone. Is it not working? If so then did GM gave sometime to improve for... — read more
Funny how GM’s executive director Tam Golden was quick to comment on Tesla’s Elon Musk Return to Work policy. Elon was very up front about layoffs. GM is trying to avoid negative press and the cost of laying people off. Recently GM went on a hiring... — read more
When management knew what it was doing and the culture was not toxic? When we didn't have to worry about layoffs all the time and we got proper raises and could advance in our career if we put in the work? When we only had to do one job for the pay... — read more
Apparently, this was a company-wide directive sent out late today. days per week in the office. 3 days per week in the office
I think there are fewer and fewer people who actually still love their job here. Unfortunately, there are many reasons for that. I am urgently looking for a way out.
I thought that I would have a lot of opportunities to learn new things at GM. However, I am not satisfied with how much I managed to upgrade my skillset here. There were simply no such opportunities for me. Since I think that keeping your... — read more
Thought to trade in my Chevy Colorado for an EV. Immediately ceased, as I realized I wouldn’t be able to travel from FL to MI without charging problems. No thanks for now.
Rather than simply saying yes, or reiterating her previous comments about topping Tesla to take the lead, Barra sort of talked around the question.
Good luck to those seeking their fair share. https://gmauthority.com/blog/2022/09/gms-ohio-ultium-plant-workers-seeking-union-representation/
Article from July 18, 2022. Interview with Mary Barra. https://apnews.com/article/general-motors-ceo-mary-barra-3f1a6d9b9f99ce06a8b89d8843b68be3
I was hired in 2022. Now I am worried I may be the last in first out if at all a layoff happens. Ford just fired newbies just to avoid age discrimination charges.
Why do I see so many forceful excuses for why that is? It seems like when General Motors managers want to FORCE you believe something that you really don’t.
I am exhausted and on the verge of burnout. Expectations are huge. Deadlines have become unreasonable and I don't know how much longer I will be able to sustain this pace of work. Is it just my feeling, or in the past few years that I've been... — read more
https://youtu.be/0GJVllRPORQ "Demand is still outstripping what we can produce." ~ Mary B So there you go. Stop worrying! If people are buying, you are safe.
I have friends who work at Ford and the current situation there is critical. Should we be worried too? I sincerely hope that there won't be such big cuts here.
I used to work with people who were really devoted to this company. They are now in some other companies. Today it seems that there is almost no one who is really devoted to GM?
Despite everything, despite all the issues this company has, I love my job here. I have worked in other companies in the industry, but for now, here is still the best for me so I care about keeping my job. Do you believe that it is possible to... — read more
Of course, no one knows for sure, but do you think that after the announcement of these layoffs at Bedford Casting Operations, more will follow?
General Motors Bedford Casting Operations informed employees Tuesday that 35 seniority, represented employees will be laid... — read more
Some colleagues assure me that there will be no cuts here, at least not in the foreseeable future. Maybe I'm worrying too much, but it seems too naive to think that GM won't have any more cuts? I wish they were right, but still... is there any... — read more
Lack of work is a big red flag if you ask me. Is there anyone else who has less and less work, who is less and less busy?
Honestly, I thought that the financial results would be even worse. Is there anyone here who believes in something like sharp recovery? I doubt it. The question though is will there be layoffs, I hope not, but I am preparing.
But on Tuesday, GM signaled it's prepared for things to get worse. "We have also modeled many downturn scenarios and we are prepared to take deliberate action when and if necessary," Barra wrote in the letter to... — read more
I try not to take rumors seriously, however, lately I have been hearing speculations from many people that there could be cuts here. Of course it could, no one is safe and that goes without saying, however, what is the probability that there will... — read more
It's a bit worrying news that Ford is laying off 8,000 people and many are rightfully wondering if we're next. One should always be prepared. I'm interested in what you think, which positions are the safest, and which could most likely become... — read more
Layoffs are eminent at GM too. Vehicles are not selling. Get ready for The Great Recession #2. Money is not circulating into the economy, because everyone is at home buying PJ’s, comfy clothes and food. No gas, daycare, oil changes, work clothes and... — read more
There isn't even job security at Tesla anymore, which is supposed to be the thing of the future. It's time to make a major change.
Post what you think will happen to them and how to prepare for the cuts. I'll post a link on their board so they know we are sharing experiences. Bloomberg just announced that they are planning 8000 layoffs to save money to finance transition to... — read more

It's been nearly four years since the last major one, any chance we are getting closer to the next one? I was 10 years at the time so I wasn't included, but I also wouldn't have accepted it at that time. However, this time I would be and I'd jump at... — read more
I'm sick of this place. I started sending applications to some competitors. Purely out of curiosity, I'm interested in what you would say if someone asked you what GM lags behind in its biggest competitors?
In January 2020, GM reached an agreement with Great Wall Motor to sell the plant. The Chinese car manufacturer was set to spend $300 million on it as part of a broader $1 billion investment to establish a significant presence in India. The two... — read more
I know that it's easy to make anything look good when you phrase it right, but still "GM’s quarterly sales fall but show improvement from beginning of year" definitely doesn't instill confidence. With the recession already starting or about to start... — read more
