The new hire assessments that are currently conducted by DDI for GM new hire applications was recently put out for bid by GM. Following the bidding process, a new vendor has been selected by General Motors to complete the new hire assessments. The company that will be conducting the assessments in the future will be Select International. Select International will soon be visiting several of our UAW represented locations to speak with Team Leaders, Group Leaders, Team Members, and Skilled Trades members to get a better understanding of what type of information is necessary to include in the assessment process for UAW GM facilities. We will share information as it becomes available while GM transitions from DDI to Select.
