GMN Hero Maria Silva

GM Nameplate displays devout service and excellence when providing a product, giving each customer a reason to be proud. This takes hard work from many people. One person, who reflects these GMN traits every day in her work is Maria Silva, senior assembler at GMN’s Seattle, WA Division.

“I love my job. Everything at work is a good thing.  I would feel lost anywhere else,” says Maria.

Maria loves her job. Each department within GMN requires hard work, and working in the assembly department is not always easy. Days for Maria can often be stressful and busy, but she never fails to display diligence in her work. After working 31 years at GMN, Maria is able to work on almost every job presented. She is looked up to and called upon frequently by fellow employees. Every day for Maria is something new, but she continues to be of service for GMN.

“Whatever needs to be done, whether it is the most simple or most complex project, Maria is right there ready to take a swing at it,” says Bill McLain, Maria’s manager..

Maria is excited when she gets to work and motivated to complete the jobs at hand, on time. She is appreciative of the opportunity and community GMN provides. Not working directly with customers, but having direct contact with their product, is fulfilling to Maria. Taking part in customers’ happiness and gratitude is a great feeling for all GMN employees.

“Have a good attitude and do the best you can do,” says Maria.

Maria has never lost sight of her humorous side. She exemplifies her positive outlook on life by making her colleagues laugh regularly and bringing enjoyment into each new day. Maria’s reputation has been carried throughout the division where she is known for good quality work and sincerity in her projects.  Maria is always on time and working the best of her ability. Every day she demonstrates experience and commitment in all she does. We are proud to call Maria a GMN hero.
