Meet Jordie McAuley, Engineer and journey seeker formed out of a Canadian Technical Centre Oshawa campus. A passion for creation and tech brought Jordie to GM where he is now partial of a Engineering Development Opportunity program. He is also a large disciple for extra-curriculars and is on many of GM’s sports teams! Read his full story here.
1) How prolonged have we been during GM and what is your stream role?
I have been during GM full-time for only over a year. we also finished a 16-month internship when we was still in university. we am now in a Engineering Development Opportunity (EDO) program. It’s a rotational position that allows me to try out opposite roles via GM and learn a automotive industry. From selling to manufacturing, hardware pattern to program and unconstrained vehicles, we can always find me somewhere new.
2) What brought we to GM for your internship?
I indeed started off my veteran career with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. The following year, we saw a posting that was each automatic engineer’s dream – a technical purpose with one of a largest automobile manufacturers in a world. It was an easy decision. Fast brazen dual and a half years later, and we have no regrets!
3) What is a best partial about your job?
Every position has good opportunities, ensuring that we am always on my toes and training something new. Combined with a extraordinary extra-curriculars, it’s overtly tough to contend what my favourite aspect would be. Who else has played trampoline dodgeball with their trainer (and his boss!)? Top that with an overwhelming outing to Whistler, BC with some coworkers and we know that we have found a right workplace.
4) How has GM helped we grow?
On a technical side of things, a turn of imagination and extent of believe in a people here is staggering. When people are as useful and accessible as they have been, it unequivocally feels as if there is no extent to what we can learn. we have hold 5 opposite positions during GM so far, and each time we need to start from scratch. This consistent change has severely softened my ability to learn and network with coworkers. The genuine levels of shortcoming have authorised me to turn gentle presenting and deliberating technical formula and information with anyone in a company!
5) What’s your favourite GM vehicle?
A year ago we would have pronounced a Cadillac CTS V (RWD, 6.2L supercharged V8 putting out 640 hp and 630 lb-ft of torque) though hesitation, though after a winter pushing a entirely installed Silverado, we could be assured otherwise…
6) If we could expostulate to one place where would it be?
I would expostulate to a Isle of Man. Every year a island hosts what is deliberate to be one of a many dangerous motorcycle races in a world. The “Isle of Man TT” has prisoner my imagination ever given we got my initial motorcycle. It would be a dream to be means to competition in it. If we haven’t seen it before, we would rarely suggest examination it. It gets your adrenaline pumping by a screen.
7) What do we do on your giveaway time?
I have recently picked adult scuba diving as a hobby, and we might never go back. It is truly an extraordinary experience. That being said, it’s tough to do on a Monday night. Most weeknights we will find me personification basketball, soccer, towering biking, or any other activity that my coworkers have roped me into (to be honest, infrequently we wire them in too).
8) What’s a final thing we watched on tv?
It would not be startling to travel into my residence and see re-runs of The Office on TV. “I’m not superstitious, though we am a little-stitious.”
9) If we didn’t have to sleep, what would we do with a additional time?
I adore to prepare and would really spend some-more time in a kitchen. Pad Thai is one of my favourite dishes to make when we have a time for it.
