Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) – Cartersville, GA – March 28, 2017
I worked for bosch as a temp for half a year. I made 8.50 starting out. The warehouse got up to if not exceeding 115 degrees. Work was tiresome. We lifted car and truck rotors all day, some exceeding 120 lbs. We operated fork lifts and pallet jacks, which we were trained and certified by by bosch certfied trainers on the floor. I was offered full time in atlanta but turned down due to commute.
Great growth opportunities, physical benefits.
Low pay for temp, very hot enviroment, heavy lifting, spiders

Manufacturing Supervisor (Former Employee) – Kentwood, MI – May 24, 2016
A typical day at work for me was extremely rewarding. This was a 7 day operation that required a lot of team work. What I learned from here was my knowledge of heat treat and the importance of team work. The management staff that I worked with was top notch. Most of my coworkers were also top notch. The was really nothing hard about this job but hearing the news we were closing. The great working relationships that you build!!
Finance department resembled a typical head-down, minimal collaboration, cubicle lifestyle. Learned many functionalities of SAP Gained experience in working between SAP and excel Co-workers were very helpful and forthcoming with advice
Management leadership skills are lacking. Its more of a dictatorship. You are treated like a number and not a person with a life and family outside of Bosch. The hardest part of the job is the mandatory weekends. Some months we can work of 21 straight days. The most enjoyable part of the job is the pay. Advancement is on a "who you know not what you know' basis.
Great learning Expierience, Great Mangement Favorite Job!
NAFTA Coordinator and Engineer Coordinator (Former Employee) – South Bend, IN – April 17, 2016
A Typical day at work involved staying on task and completing work assigned. I would also have many people whom I worked around greet me and make me feel valued and welcome. I also loved that they offered the staff a cafeteria so leaving the building during the day was optional. I also met many interns and military officials from Germany and learned to speak basic German. By far one of the best places I have ever worked. My only regret is being hired as temp and expiring my position uncontrollable after 2,000 hours as they were doing very little hiring in at the time. I was so liked by many people who worked there that I played on the softball team and they begged the company to hire me in and at the time they had very little control in doing so, as they were continuing to downsize the company.
