Suggestions for improvement

  • I would just change the employees are treated day to day.

What I like about the company

We get a bonus every 3 to 4 months. And a raise every 6 months for 3 and a half years. Then a raise once a year. The gym on site is a good benefit for us to take Advantage of. The cafeteria is huge with a number of different types of foods to eat.

What I dislike about the company

The management does not treat the employees right. We go above and beyond and reach every goal that has been set for us we are not compensated fairly for the work we do.

Suggestions for improvement

  • If there was an occupational therapist or a physical therapist onsite, I think that would improve some of the conditions of the line employees.

What I like about the company

Upper management let's you know what needs to be done in a timely and professional manner. You are rarely asked to do things that are not within your capabilities. You work with other suppliers as it takes many different companies to make a car. People are friendly, and there is room for promotion within the department or moving horizontally.

What I dislike about the company

Hour can get a little long sometimes, but it comes with the Korean culture. You are pretty much to get your assigned tasks done before you leave for the day.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay scale - should be paid commission AND hourly wage (that is not minimum wage) and something in regards to overtime. Better rules and policies for holding people accountable when they step out of line. Need a hire a few more people - lot attendants, service mechanics.

What I like about the company

Rewarding finding cars that people want and making it fit within their lifestyle/budget. Always meeting new people. A lot to learn so very rewarding as you pick it up. Friendly staff/coworkers. GM is nice to work for. Brings new opportunities.

What I dislike about the company

Pay scale should be better/different. Very unpredictable business and is not always steady. Can be competitive amongst coworkers.

  • Cut the waste in spending. Management ofter spends 10's of thousands for themselves and leaves the company wanting.

What I like about the company

I was able to go to Korea for a cultre trip and once more for business. It was a good experience to learn the culture.

What I dislike about the company

Management could involve employee more and admit that they need trainning and employee opinions to make better decisions.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Develop a training program that helps train the right individuals for upper level positions

What I like about the company

Lots of good people work on the assembly line which is great but they are treated terribly.

What I dislike about the company

They treat employees terrible. They use profanity when talking to them and racism runs rampant at the manufacturing plant. Also, they do not care about family time or when you have family emergencies
