DETROIT (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - General Motors says it will hire as many as 1,500 people to work at a new computer technology center in the Detroit suburbs.
GM is shifting computer work into the company from outside firms and plans to open four new technology centers in the United States.
Last month the company announced it would hire 500 people for a center in Austin, Texas.
It's all part of a move to bring 90 percent of information technology in-house, which GM believes will make it more nimble and efficient.
The company could hire 10,000 people to do the work in the next three to five years.
