How are promotions handled at OnStar?

Pros

Company vehicle, Every employee gets the week of Christmas Off, National Meetings. Get to consult with Millionaire owners and high level staff to implement processes.

Cons

contract employee, low wages, bonuses are rigged and you compete against everyone for them, they don't measure on your performance improvement - they only care if you are #1, micromanaging, THEY WILL MAKE YOU WORK during your VACATION (must keep your phones on), Corporate is a Boys Club with NO DIVERSITY. You get reimbursed - So, you are responsible for your Gas and account gifts and have to expense them to get your $$ back. The General Motors team members are rude to you because you are a contractor. The dealerships can be a nightmare to work at. The majority of them are full of people who wouldnt pass the chick fil a test. Not a woman friendly or family friendly job - Regional managers insist on having meetings at 8am - which is difficult to manage when you are getting kids out the door. Promotions are blocked, people are true gatekeepers. Kiss major tail if you want to get out of thier paws. If you get promoted, they want to send you to places that are not known to be safe for people of color. It is almost like a hazing. Job i best suited for a recent High School Grad. They require a degree and do not pay livable wages.

Advice to Management

Increase wages, convert position to a GM position, provide acutal field support, develop your team for actual promotions, HIRE MORE PEOPLE of Color. Everyone can not be White.

What is the feeling of job security at OnStar?

Pros

Nice company car work from home Easy product to push Pay dealers to activate onstar

Cons

Base Pay is super low, nobody can live off this income unless they live with their parents or work multiple jobs. Bonus pay out is super low. You get hit for taxes, benefits, personal mileage and I cry every two weeks I get my check.

Advice to Management

A company as big as GM needs to pay field employees more money. This is taking advantage during a pandemic to pay people wayyyyyy below market value.
