Meet Walter Duda: GE helped me live the #American dream
“I am a first generation Polish American. I was born in 1934 and I spent the first ten years of my childhood without electricity or any other modern conveniences. As the years went by, I remember watching my family as they were being introduced to more and more appliances and modern technologies. When I was growing up, I saw GE as this mysterious company that was involved in so many aspects of my life. I observed as GE not only made its way into my home through lighting and appliances, but also as GE participated in the war effort. GE’s military involvement was very important to me because I had two brothers that served in WWII and I served in Korea. After my military experience, I was luckily enough to be employed in many different occupations, but I never really felt like I was living the American dream – until I joined GE. I loved how GE cared about my opinions and accepted my inputs on money saving ideas. While I was an employee I received two written commendations five different cash awards. I had a great career at GE and ended up retiring at the age of 70. I also loved working at GE because there were so many great plant managers.”
