Fast paced and high pressure, very few companies doing what GM do at the same scale, so good experience to be had.That being said it very much depends on who you work for and what you do.Good benefits for permanent employees,but Opportunities to grow your career are scarce.
The company has work force of 1400 people. lots of opportunity to be promoted to different jobs with in the company and overseas plants.
Training and education opportunity at the plant and overseas plants available.
Visiting other plants around the world for training and new manufacturing practices.
High standard of quality to all aspects of the company policy and procedures.
People were treated with up most respect.
Decent place to work. Requires a lot of flexibility especially in terms of developing knowledge in many different areas. This is offset by a collabrative and helpful culture which utilizes various knowledge sharing techniques to upskill people from knowledge sharing sessions, to mentoring to designed and tailored training programs.
Only downside is the salary/benefits and job security (contract).
Collabrative helpful and highly diverse workplace, Informal managment with easy to understand goals and aims, Delivery on targets is prioritised
No Job security, temporary employment, salary and benefits not optimal.
I saw a lot of Interns and Apprentice come and go.The permanent staff in limerick only makes up about half the workforce. Training and support is poor. It is not a good learning environment for the Interns and Apprentices.
If you are made permanent there are reasonable terms and conditions.
Apprentices and Interns worked longer hours than the permanent staff.
My first high level office experience, i had trained on IBM Datastage tool for a month and in live project with a team of 9, well coordinating with scrum master and the team on daily stand-ups. Very good place to be in.
