With all the attention that General Motors has gotten since the introduction of the Chevy Volt concept in January at the Detroit Auto Show, they have decided that they need to actually do more work in the area. So now they're looking for up to 400 engineers and technicians to help them develop advanced powertrain technologies like hybrids, diesels and fuel cells. They're also looking for information technology staff and people to work on the OnStar telematics systems. If you're interested in helping to make the Volt a reality, head over to www.gmcareerfair.com and submit a resume. Details are after the jump.

      If you worked for GM near Detroit it would be best to live in Oakland County. I live there and its a nice place.

      have you ever picked up a financial statement in your life, or do you simply skim the blog headlines and call yourself informed?

      Just because a company is old means job security? Look at ford...
      • 7 Years Ago
      I hope they pay well. I wouldn't be too confident on your job security ever working for GM.

      Isn't it a little late to be hiring people for this? Seriously though, it sounds really exciting because it will push the Volt ahead now.

      #19 I will add the future zero emission electric drive trains needed for vehicles will also be of interest to NASA.
      Government could share the burdon of cost and research with the American based auto companies.

      No big oil money for campain contributions please!

      It appears that many of the hybrid jobs are in Milford, Mi. based on a search of GM's employment site.

      What is hypocritical about anything I said? What does being a hypocrit have to do with anything I said? Do you understand the definition of the word? Read the latest news articles about Toyota and you'll find that they have always put out a notice just before they would be legally required to publically proclaim a recall to avoid the negative publicity of a recall where GM has always had to make public any form of a recall. I'm also offended you claim I'm on pot, I've never met my uncle because of the stuff...so thanks asshole! But it's ok, continue to compensate for your lack of companionship by logging into an autoblog and criticizing people for expressing their opinions only because they differ from yours even though you have no evidence to back up your claim and your statement has no backing.

      Rocket, I agree that it sucks that GM cut back so many jobs but it had to be done. So they did it, it's over. They also have outrageous retirement issues that Toyota doesn't have because they refuse to allow their employees to form a union (I don't agree with unions because, although good in theory, just like communism they absorb too much control) which have helped to make their debt even worse. However, regardless what happened, you fail to even acknowledge that they finally turned a profit in '06 and, even though they have a long way to go, that's still an accomplishment. You can brag about Toyota all you want, I don't care, but when in a blog about GM...I don't really want to hear it. The reason why I rarely read Autoblog anymore is because, regardless the origin, the first post or two is doing nothing but making fun of the other side with some weak and pathetic statement that is completely irrelevant to the topic.

      I agree with the comments from Kieth. With the shape that company is in at the moment, "GM job security" is an oxymoron. Besides why the heck would one want to live in Detroit.
      • 7 Years Ago
      Love all the negative feedback. Afraid this turned into an american vs. japanese war now..

      My comment was focused on how behind GM is with these technologies. I'm an engineer myself and if you've ever had the chance to work for a company that deals with products and designing products for market demand than you have soemthing to learn.

      They are going to whip these engineers so hard and by the time they catch-up they will be behind on other new techonologies. Thus horrible horrible job.. plus the whole detroit aspect ;-P

      Added on that, like stated in other posts GM has had a huge decline on salaried employees in the last couple years.

      This is good news, but...

      ...would you want to be an engineer for a company that puts high-profile exciting development projects on indefinite hold as a political scare tactic?
      • 7 Years Ago
      yeah im sure Milford is alot nicer then Boston. OK
