They're supposed to start laying off here @ Powertrain this week too.....

GM thinks they're going to save money by outsourcing engineering & design.

What will actually happen is the same thing that happened to Chrysler a few years back, They'll lose quality control & warranties will skyrocket.
But by then, the execs that made these decicions will take their bonuses & retire. Nice.........f**** the company up then leave. A virtual hump & dump.

Sorry to hear the news.


What kind of work were you doing for GM?

There are some positions opening up for process leaders in the Call Center Operations department at OnStar, which is where I work.

i think its to start getting rid of all the "dead wood"
in GM.
all those blue badges are shaking in their boots now.
there are few if any contracts left in design ctr.
good luck out there. if your a yellow badge & still have a job your lucky.

Sorry to hear that Sandman.
I hope all this job cutting ends soon, so many people have gone in the last couple years. It's extremely sad.

Today is the day here too, sitting here waiting to see if the axe is coming my way. I really hate it here today, 2 1/2 years, 6 rounds of lay offs...
why is it that they keep hiring people then laying them off? DUH, stop hiring...simple!

I feel your pain also...Hubby was laid off for 4 months just over a year ago...finally got caught back up on finances and his company was bought out by another company and they didnt keep any of the employees. His last day was last Friday. He is a WAN engineer and does Voice over IP. 13 years of experience...so if anyone has any leads that would be great.

Sorry to hear the bad news everyone. I found out that 2 people from my old job got laid off a couple weeks ago. One guy has been there for over 15 years and the other around 8 years or so. I'm glad I had something else lined up and got out of there when I did.
Good luck.

What a big, fat drag.....That is so wrong to do to someone!!! 6 weeks....they can't let you finish your time??? I know many people that have been screwed over like that with much more than 10 years....just isn't right <_<


I do hope something better comes your way....with better pay and bennies.

Thinking positive thoughts and prayers for you.

Bummer. Not sure when you got laid off but I think state law requires your employer to continue your health insurance for 3 months. Even if your fired.
