General Motors needs temporary workers—about 100 of them at the Flint, Michigan, assembly plant. MLive reported the automaker seeks new temp employees to “aid balancing our workforce with our business.”
The Flint assembly plant is responsible for building the following GM vehicles:
- Chevrolet Silverado HD Crew Cab
- Chevrolet Silverado HD Regular Cab
- GMC Sierra HD Crew Cab
- GMC Sierra HD Regular Cab
- Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Regular Cab
- Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab
The plant has also been the recipient of $2 billion in investments since 2011 and maintains a workforce of 3,164 employees. Most recently, GM invested $79 million into a new trim shop in 2017.
Those interested in the employment opportunity must be at least 18 years old and may be asked to work between one and three days per week. First, second and third shifts are possible for temp workers. Applicants should expect mandatory Saturday shifts and mandatory overtime hours with little notice. The starting pay is $15.87 an hour, and those who are hired will be eligible for holiday pay and health care options after 90 days of employment.
The plant said it’s unclear how long it will need the temp workers, but employment status will be “indefinite” until further notice. Certainly, GM believes it will need more hands on deck as it gears up for full-scale 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and 2019 GMC Sierra production.
