Frequently Asked Questions
PLEASE NOTE: The Select International support team and the Help Desk will only be able to answer question about steps completed as part of this hiring process; we will be unable to assist with any requests related to activities completed with another vendor prior to April 1, 2018.
Below you’ll find answers to commonly asked questions. If you have a question that is not answered here, you may contact the following resources.
I am currently a temporary GM OTS (Other Than Skilled) employee and I would like to transfer to another location. What should I do?
As a temporary employee there are no provisions to allow transfers between plants. If you are unable to continue your assignment at the facility you hired into, it is recommended that you notify the local management and voluntarily resign your position. Once you have resigned, you will be considered a former employee in good standing and you can reapply at a later date for re-employment. However, you are not given any preference over other applicants.

I have a documented disability and would like to request an accommodation for one or more steps in the hiring process. Who should I contact?
General Motors is committed to being an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer and offers opportunities to all job seekers including individuals with disabilities.

Please include a description of the specific accommodation you are requesting and be prepared to provide documentation supporting the request.
General Motors sometimes has multiple facilities in a relatively small geographic region. If you are interested in working at a facility that is within close proximity to other General Motors facilities, your application will be valid for ALL facilities within that region. You will not be able to apply to just one facility within that region. Please visit the Locations/Regions tab to learn more.
I don't see the position or facility/region to which I'd like to apply. How do I submit an application?
Applications are accepted based on General Motors' hiring needs. If you do not see the position or facility/region to which you'd like to apply, it means we are not currently accepting applications for that position or facility/region. Feel free to check back often, as the site will be updated as hiring needs change.
As a reminder, some facilities are included as part of a larger geographic region (e.g. the Grand Rapids Components plant is included within the Greater Lansing Region). Be sure to check the Locations/Regions tab to see if you are able to apply to the specific facility in which you're interested, or if it is included within a larger region.
I started an application but didn't get a chance to answer all of the questions. How do I finish it?
I already filled out an application, but I wish to be considered for a different facility or region. How do I update my application?
Please email GMSupport@psionline.com to request that your application be moved. Note that you may have only ONE (1) application on file at a time. Therefore, if your request to move your application is granted, your original application will no longer be considered valid.

I need to schedule an appointment for my on-site exercise, but the calendar is blank. How should I proceed?

I scheduled an appointment to complete an on-site exercise, but I didn't write down the details. How can I find information about my appointment?
